Micro Cutting Tool Options Expand as Applications Increase

Solid-carbide micro cutting tools about the diameter of human hair or smaller—some producing parts visible only under a microscope—are making a huge impact on manufacturing highly advanced electronics, automotive and aerospace fuel injection systems, and medical instruments and implants.

Toolholding: Built for Speed

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.

Checking Up on Tool Monitoring

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.

Livin’ Large with Outsize Parts and Workholding

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 to Host Global Live Event: “It’s Tool Time!”

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.

Ceratizit Hosts Online Cutting Tool Optimization Event

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.

Sandvik to Acquire Chinese Round Tools Maker

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.

New Tech Offers Improved Drilling Productivity for Steel, Cast Iron

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.
