All-directional turning goes inside out

Following last year’s launch of PrimeTurning™ methodology and tools for external turning operations, Sandvik Coromant is now introducing a dedicated CoroTurn® Prime SL head that makes this groundbreaking process available for internal turning operations. The new SL head will cater for the needs of oil and gas, aerospace and other manufacturers machining diameters in excess of 90 mm (3.5 inch), and overhangs up to 8-10xD.

Mastercam 2019 Released for Global Public Testing

Mastercam 2019 Public Beta is now open to all currently maintained Mastercam customers. Shops all over the world, from small job shops to Fortune 100, get a chance to test-drive Mastercam 2019 before it is released and provide valuable feedback to help shape the final product. Participants in the Public Beta get an early look at dozens of powerful new tools for simple to complex jobs.

A tool cart minimizes the risk of cut injuries

From practice for practice – according to this motto, SCHUNK, the competence leader for gripping systems and clamping technology, developed a compact tool cart for up to 156 tool mountings that provides the best protection against cuts in everyday operation as additional storage for the machine due to its trademarked push-fit system.

Lightweight jaws offer numerous advantages in turning

With a wide range of lightweight initiatives with chuck jaws, SCHUNK is breathing new life into turning applications. The competence leader for gripping systems and clamping technology is now offering a range of diverse claw and stepped jaw models for raw part clamping from the world’s largest range of standard chuck jaws also optionally as a lightweight version.

A well-rounded affair: low-deformation workpiece clamping

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.

Vero To Demonstrate Three Of The Best At Southern Manufacturing

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.

SmartCAM v2018 Released

SmartCAMcnc has announced the release of SmartCAM® v2018. The SmartCAM Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software family consists of applications for Computer-Numerical Control (CNC) milling, turning, fabrication and wire EDM.

Process Integration CNC LATHE with Y-Axis

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.

Edgecam 2018 R1 Reduces Regeneration Time

Major enhancements to the 2018 R1 release of Edgecam, from Vero Software, include time saving updates to roughing cycles for milling, turning and MTM and the prevention of unnecessary CAM regeneration.
