Last Glance at IMTS 2010
It would be impossible to cover all of the key exhibitors at IMTS 2010—even if every booth got merely a quick glance. However, the editors of MMS did get glimpses of some interesting technologies exhibited at the show...

Product Lines Feature Quick-Change System
The EWS driven tool and static toolholder lines are available in both VDI and BMT styles. Within the product lines is the company’s Varia system, which is a quick-change system with a simplified, single clamping point connection system available for driven, static and special application EWS products.

reaming system

Re-Designing The Reamer
This reaming system uses a multiple-cutting-edge, solid carbide cutting disc that can be changed as easily as an end mill's insert.

Toolholders Fuel Setup Time Reduction
This Indiana shop has been a precision automotive parts supplier to Honda America since it began operations in 1988. Among its precision machined products are fuel intake manifolds for Honda Civics, Accords and V6 sport utility vehicles. IPT produces 4,000 of these manifolds in a 24-hour workday, die casts these manifolds and does all finish machining and testing in-house.

Command extended length toolholders

Boosting Machine Output While Using Fewer Toolholders
Toolholder distortion can impede machining operations, especially if the toolholder walls collapse during high speed operation. All sorts of problems can result, from cutting tool breakage and loss of the machined parts to costly damage of the machine spindle and drawbar.

Bores

Toolholder Selection Makes A Difference For Large Part Machining Operations
Machining very large cast iron parts often requires large amounts of material removal using wide cuts and deep bores, so the speeds seldom exceed 5,000 rpm.

Collets and Collet chucks

Four Toolholder Quality Factors
Toolholders are a critical link between the machine tool and the workpiece. This article looks at four fundamental toolholder manufacturing parameters that precision metalcutting shops need to consider when tooling for a job.

Roughing Assembly

Big Boring On Smaller Machines
This modular boring system lets you bore holes up to eight inches in diameter on machining centers with 40-taper spindles.
