As machining has evolved, toolholders have advanced to include rigid, secure systems with anti-pullout protection. These advanced systems are needed to take on difficult-to-machine materials, such as titanium and heat-resistant superalloys (HRSA), and accommodate ambitious removal rates and long tool overhangs. Think of them as insurance against tool pullout and breakage—a situation nobody wants.
Manufacturers are always looking for signs of what the economy and the business outlook have in store for them. Since the election of President Trump and, more recently, passage of the tax reform law in December, confidence among businesses of all sizes has been overwhelmingly positive.
Defeating chatter, increasing speeds and feeds, defeating pullout, and reducing cycle times hold the keys to success.
On race day, everybody sees the race on TV, but behind the scenes there’s a competition going on between shops where time is everything, according to Matt Gimbel, Team Penske’s production manager.
Demand for fluid ends is rising because of increased drilling and the component’s short lifespan.
Advances in turning insert technology that promise faster processing, longer tool life and reduced cycle time are always promoted with great fanfare by suppliers and welcomed by manufacturers looking for a competitive edge.
High-speed, small footprint milling machines have challenged traditional spindle retention knob technology to achieve the design safety required in today’s advanced shops.
Intelligent factories have existed since manufacturing’s historical inception, but intelligence—defined as the acquisition and application of manufacturing knowledge—resided only with the factory’s staff.
Industrial lasers require cooling to remove excess heat generated in the resonator power electronics and the optics system. The type of cooling required is determined by laser wattage, resonator efficiency, resonator and optics temperature requirements, and ambient temperature.
