The Victory CNC quick-change gang tool from Dorian Tool is designed to fully automate any programmable toolroom lathe in the simplest and most economical way possible, the company says. The gang tool holds as many as 12 tools in a linear setup, eliminating the need to stop the machine and change tools after each operation. No wiring or interfacing is required. The gang tool slides over the toolpost dovetail like a common quick-change toolholder and is locked in place by pulling the toolpost locking handle. The anti-rotation pins prevent radial movement of the toolpost during heavy drilling, boring, turning and threading operations. If a user removes the gang tool, the toolpost is left on the machine, ready for shaft work or toolroom work. Center height of all tools can be simultaneously adjusted using the height adjustment screw, minimizing setup/change-over time. Also, the tool is supplied with a through-coolant system and all required coolant fittings.

Robotic Cell Cuts Cycle Time, Improves Part Quality

Sew-Eurodrive Inc. worked with Okuma America’s authorized systems dealer, Gosiger Automation, to design an automated cell that includes an automatic, magazine bar feeder that loads 6-ft. lengths of barstock into the machine. The shop also switched to an Okuma twin spindle, twin turret turning center so all of the machining operations are completed in one setup, thus eliminating additional fixtures and operator intervention. The resultant system reduces cycle times and requires much less operator involvement. As a result, production time per part was more than cut in half – from about 5 minutes to 2 minutes, 20 seconds.
