Those wanting to turn, mill or grind rings, flanges, housings or other thin-walled parts will quickly reach the limits of what is possible using conventional chucks or face plates: the parts are deformed in the clamping process, shaping and geometric tolerances are difficult to adhere to and the interference contours of the clamping devices restrict the accessibility. There are a great deal of alternatives here – from the compensating multi-jaw chucks, the magnetic clamping technology right up to the pendulum jaws. To ensure things run smoothly, it is worth knowing the strengths of the individual problem solvers, because this saves time, money and often nerves.
The 2018 R1 releases of Edgecam includes updates to roughing cycles for milling, turning and MTM. And the prevention of unnecessary CAM regeneration is seen as being particularly important. When editing a tool command, the remaining instructions will no longer be automatically regenerated if the alteration does not affect the corresponding cycles with aspects such as coolant or high-speed.
HYUNDAI WIA proudly introduces KL7000LY for large-size shaft processing machine. Capability of heavy-duty cutting and productivity has remarkably enhanced due to the ideal composition of powerful spindle, high rigidity box guideway, and wedge type Y-axis. We are expecting that 24″ and 32″ chuck will make the most usages for oil and gas industries. Besides strong and reliable wedge type Y-axis has an advantage in machining of complex shape.
Constant clamping forces, minimal maintenance costs as well as high energy efficiency, and productivity are assured with the versatile SCHUNK ROTA NCA power lathe chuck. With its large dimensioned through-hole for automated bar loading and its convenient clamping range, the weight-reduced lathe chuck covers an extremely wide range of applications.
The tool manufacturer Vandurit has developed an innovative rollFEED® turning method that is matched with an exclusive hyperMILL® CAM strategy from OPEN MIND. Thanks to this collaboration, there is now a new solution for CNC turning that offers maximum process reliability and significantly reduces machining times and tool wear.
