Kyocera Precision Tools, Hendersonville, N.C., has expanded its jet coolant-through toolholder series, which provides multiple high-pressure coolant streams at precise locations providing excellent chip control and wear prevention, according to the company.
Advanced cutting tools can maximize metal removal rates (MRR) when machining even the most difficult-to-machine materials. Powered by the latest CAM programs, these machining strategies are known variously as high-speed, high-efficiency, optimized roughing and also by proprietary brand names like Mastercam’s Dynamic Milling.
April 2020 U.S. cutting tool consumption totaled $142.9 million, according to the U.S. Cutting Tool Institute (USCTI) and AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology.
YG-1 has launched the ENMX High-Feed Mill, a new high-feed milling series developed for mold and die, power generation and a variety of applications and materials in general machining markets.
For the highest levels of competitive benchrest and extreme long-range (ELR) shooting, feats of precision manufacturing and machining are required for success. Like Formula 1 racing cars or PGA golfers’ clubs, world-class competition rifles are made with highly engineered precision parts.
The push to modernize technology-intensive sectors in Asia—such as automotive, aerospace and general engineering—is constantly stretching machine tool builders in the region to their limits. The demand is not just for standard machines.
Seco has completed the acquisition of the cutting tool division of Quimmco Centro Tecnológico (QCT), a subsidiary of the Quimmco Group. The cutting tool division acquired from QCT has three locations in Mexico to support customers and is a leading solid-carbide tooling manufacturer, specializing in custom products and reconditioning.
One of mankind’s oldest manufacturing methods—making a hole—is now challenged by rapid advances, including new and harder materials, increased part complexity, ever smaller component parts, and the need for shorter cycle times.
Holemaking. A layperson might think, “what could be simpler?” But a machinist knows better because there’s a lot to consider when creating a streamlined toolpath.
