Speedgrip Chuck Co., an Elkhart, Ind. Based workholding equipment manufacturer, has become the first U.S. customer of Taiyo Koki’s CVG-6T grinding machine. Taiyo Koki, a DMG Mori owned grinding machine manufacturer founded in 1986, “moves beyond the conventional concept of the traditional grinding,” the company said in a statement.
Machining gears is still regarded by many machine tool operators as a true challenge and a realm reserved exclusively for specialists.
YG-1 has launched four new solid-carbide fiberglass routers for CNC or hand routers to handle machining processes for fiberglass and other high-performance fibers. The new routers are optimized in composition, cutting angles, flute strength and stability for longer life and lower cost per part, according to the company.
Welding has been around for millennia, but today’s technology doesn’t often benefit from the information- and feedback-rich technologies that its machining cousin does. Christopher Ripley, Director of Business Development, and Eduardo Almeida, Director of Engineering, Innovation and R&D for BrandTech®, sit down with Chris Mahar, Associate Editor, to talk about the company’s BrandTech® Precision Welding system and how its computer-controlled system differs from traditional stud welding.

As part of its continued drive for improvement and innovation, Webster Industries recently converted from solid wire to metal-cored wire in its robotic, fixed automation and semi-automatic welding operations.
One thing that’s certain in developing the most cost-effective solutions for part-off and grooving applications is that there is not just one way to approach the problem and meet basic process requirements for chip evacuation, tool life and surface finish.
There’s more than one way to finish a hole. The most effective option will depend on the number of parts, cycle time and tolerances. One of the most effective options is boring.
While the initial investment for a modular quick-change tooling system is higher than that of traditional toolholders, significantly improving the connection between spindles and tooling is well worth it.
