The evolution to high speed machining (HSM) is continuing and toolholders are playing a crucial role in that process, which includes the interlinking of machining center, programming, high-speed spindles, advanced cutting tools, balancing, and high-performance toolholders in order for shops to take full advantage of HSM.
Machine shops use a variety of techniques to track the condition of their cutting tools, ranging from simple to sophisticated. No matter what monitoring method is used, it can be crucial in preventing catastrophic tool failure. At its best, monitoring also significantly boosts tool life and slashes tooling costs.
Workholding needs to be super-sized when machining workpieces like truck transmission housings, wind turbine blades, rocket bodies, and more, for industries like aerospace and defense, agricultural, energy, marine, rail, and on- and off-road transportation.
CERATIZIT Group will host a global online event, “It’s Tool Time,” on Thursday, June 17 featuring experts who will focus on the value of process optimization through a variety of interactive machining demonstrations and presentations.
At first glance, ceramic cutting tools appear doomed to failure, but the reality is just the opposite.
An online “It’s Tool Time” event, eight months after Ceratizit’s first Tool Time show, focused on how manufacturers merge the use of Ceratizit cutting tools–from a portfolio of 65,000 products–with new technologies such as additive manufacturing.
SMW-Electronics, a unit of SMW-Autoblok, has broken ground on a new 11,000 ft2 two-story facility in Meckenbeuren, Germany.
Sandvik has signed an agreement to acquire 67 percent of Chuzhou Yongpu Carbide Tools Co., Ltd, a China-based maker of solid round tools, with a call option to buy the remaining part in three years.
Holemaking in steel and cast iron up to one inch in diameter is one of the most widely used metalworking processes. What is driving drilling and tapping performance are advances in substrate, coatings, three-flute designs, and combination tools. Just as important are advances in coolant delivery, using different size holes and shapes to facilitate chip evacuation.
