Thread Mills Take on Tough Materials

When it’s time to put threads in parts, particularly those made of difficult-to-machine materials, thread mills are often the right choice. Thread mills cut threads with a cutting head typically smaller than the hole, unlike taps that are sized to match the hole diameter.

Rising to Toolholding Challenges

Difficult materials and high-speed machining don’t just present problems for cutting tools. They can also push toolholders to their limits—and beyond. So manufacturers offer a variety of products designed to get the toolholding job done under extreme machining conditions.

Avoiding Costly Defects

Avoiding product defects—and quickly finding and fixing those that occur—is a critical priority for all manufacturers.

No Burrs, No Defects

A burr could become a danger point in the turbine engine. Classical manufacturing processes like turning, milling and grinding can lead to burr formation and unwanted sharp edges.

Mastering Microturbines

Extreme complexity is inherent to jet engines of all sizes, from those on a Boeing 777x to ones that power the smallest drone.

Improved vProbe Offers Production Floor CMM Measurements

The improved API vProbe tactile measuring sensor performs accurate CMM-style measurements directly on the production floor, according to Automated Precision, Inc (API.) Integrated with the API Radian Laser Tracker series the vProbe enhances the measuring capabilities and functionalities of traditional Laser Trackers.
