To help manufacturers succeed in a difficult economy, a complimentary one-day seminar will showcase new ways of integrating the latest machining products and techniques to improve productivity and product quality while reducing costs. Jointly hosted by cutting tool manufacturer Emuge, machine tool builder Hermle Machine, software developer Open Mind and metrology provider M&H Probing Systems, the event is scheduled for June 9 at Emuge’s Technology Center in West Boylston, Massachussetts.
Technical representatives from each company will answer questions about products, technology and processes and how they interact to produce predictable and more efficient manufacturing cycles. CNC machinists, programmers, manufacturing engineers, operations personnel and other manufacturing professionals are encouraged to attend free of charge.
Along with classroom time and various technical presentations, the seminar will feature a number of live demonstrations involving component setup, machining, inspection and programming. These include machining of challenging, hard material components on a Hermle C 30 U five-axis machining center, as well as a demonstration of milling, thread milling and tapping on a highly automated machine using Open Mind’s hyperMill software platform. This integrated approach is said to reduce cycle times, increase control and improve surface finishes and accuracies. A demonstration of on-machine spindle probing inspection will show users how to save time, ensure accuracy and reduce scrap. Other demos explore advanced practices such as zero-stock machining and rest machining.
