Some trends in machining remain constant. Machine speeds continue to increase. Difficult-to-cut materials are used more frequently.
Part holding fixtures are critical for precisely holding and locating parts. Most such fixtures use locators for positioning.
December 2020 U.S. cutting tool consumption totaled $157.3 million, according to the U.S. Cutting Tool Institute (USCTI) and AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology.
Greenleaf Corporation has announced XSYTIN-360, a new line of high-performance solid ceramic end mills, to the global market.
Those who manufacture precision workholding systems have the same goals and challenges as the machinists who use them. Both groups strive to reduce setup times and optimize cutting cycles. Secure, consistent, and accurate gripping is paramount.
A few years ago, two companies joined forces to greatly enhance productivity in heavy milling and crankshaft machining. Their combined efforts resulted in solutions to improve throughput and reduce costs by a factor of four in some cases.
Cybersecurity is growing more critical every year. Much of the focus has been on protecting information technology (IT) assets, and operational technology security can be been overlooked. In this episode, Alan Rooks, Editor in Chief of Manufacturing Engineering magazine, talks with Michael Rothschild, Senior Director of Marketing for Tenable about what has changed to cause operational technology security to gain a high profile; how OT environments are different from, and similar to IT; what types of attacks are impacting OT environments; what can happen if an OT attack is successful; common methods for detecting OT based attacks; and how proactive security is a powerful strategy for OT security.
Thanks in part to its pro-business policies, strong workforce, and trade infrastructure, Florida ranks among the nation’s top 10 states for manufacturing.
End mills, traditionally made with two to four flutes, are used in one of the oldest mechanized machining processes—milling.
