Small Indexable Tools for Live Tooling
Live tooling spindles—motorized spindles in a CNC lathe turret that hold a drill, end mill or other tools—have been getting more powerful in recent years: it’s no longer uncommon for them to reach 10,000 rpm at upwards of 5 hp (3.73 kW) for a short time period.

Developing tools and programs through cloud-based information can accelerate operations.

Speeding Production with Digital Tooling
More than product specs for the cloud crowd, this approach to machining setup can massively accelerate things—both the planning and the operation.

Tooling Topic
From grooving to honing, here are some new tools that you ought to be aware of for better production.

Advances in Metalcutting
Grooving & SlittingGrooving and slitting ops are facilitated by a new family of tools launched by Sandvik Coromant (coromant.sandvik.com/us). There is the CoroMill 329 cutter, which deploys CoroCut two-edge inserts and a strong V-rail clamping interface.

Indexable Drills
ISCAR's DR indexable twist drills are optimized for use on all steels, alloys and cast iron.

Faster Cutting: Cut In Balance
Somewhere between higher spindle speeds and cutting tool performance capabilities lies the answer to the dilemma of achieving higher feed rates without sacrificing accuracy and productivity. Perhaps it's the toolholder...
