Connected, Vibration-dampening Tool Holder

On Manufacturing
Connected, Vibration-dampening Tool Holder The Sandvik Coromant Silent Tools Plus tool holder helps keep turning tools quiet during machining operations because it has a pre-tuned dampener inside the tool body that consists of a heavy mass supported by rubber spring elements.

The FreeTurn tool’s slim shank and axial concept is designed to optimize the direction of the cutting forces into the spindle. At the front is the multi-sided insert; each edge of the insert has different properties.

CNC Lathe Advances Breed Novel Cutting Tool Designs
Y-axis travels and secondary spindles have engendered some new approaches to familiar tasks.

Reciprocating Head Changes Tube Profiles

On Manufacturing - Jan. 2019
Reciprocating Head Changes Tube Profiles If you want to make an extruded plastic tube with two different interior profile geometries, typically you’ll have to extrude a section with one profile, do another run for the second profile, then attach the two with a connector.

Autodesk Fusion Production software lets manufacturers digitize their production by combining production planning, job tracking and machine monitoring into a single tool.

The Network and the Sensor
The smart-factory world of digital manufacturing is coming, and manufacturing-technology developers are eager to help you be ready.  

Hard turning in place of grinding for hardened steel parts can offer great gains in throughput while maintaining required surface finish and dimensional requirements.

Improving Hard Turning
While it is pointed out that using hard turning in place of grinding for case-hardened or induction-hardened steel components such as transmission shafts and gears can reduce both machining costs and time by as much as 70 percent or more, according to the people at Sandvik Coromant Co. (sandvik.coromant.com) such gains are achievable only if that hard turning (usually performed as a finishing or semi-finishing process) is performed with optimized insert grades.

IMTS 2016 Preview
About the Event The 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) marks the 31st edition of the event which will take place September 12-17, 2016, at McCormick Place in Chicago.

Machining Today
As materials are introduced to automotive production plants, so, too, are the tools needed to machine them. Here’s a look at some of the developments.

Major Gains in Energy Reduction through Minor Adjustments
You may be surprised at how you can achieve output, quality, and energy savings in machining operations.

New Inserts for Machining Cast Iron  What: Two Tiger•tec Silver geometries and two grades for cast iron machining: RK5 for roughing and RK7 for interrupted cuts.

Removing Metal
Some things remain the same. But there are also significant changes in the area of cutting metal.

Sandvik’s New CoroMill 316 End Mills Extend Depth of Cut
Sandvik Coromant has developed three new end mill inserts for its CoroMill 316 exchangeable head milling system: a ballnose mill for profile milling, aluminum machining and finishing; a corner radius mill for slot, shoulder, plunge and face milling, as well as ramping and pocketing; and a chamfer mill for chamfer milling and spot drilling.The mills, all of which feature two cutting edges, extend the depth of cut range by 30% to 0.8 x cutting diameter (Dc) compared to previous CoroMill 316 end mills (0.5 x Dc).

New Process Developed for Gear Machining
Heller Machine Tools and Voith, a Germany-based transmission manufacturer, have developed a process that permits the pre-milling and milling operations to produce bevel gears and gear components on a five-axis machining center rather than on a dedicated gear-making machine.To produce gears, they start with the drawing of the part.
