Going To Great Lengths
Heidenhain LB 382C sealed linear scales enabled Ingersoll Machine Tools to meet the customer’s requirements for the largest five-axis gantry machine in North America.

Integral Collet Tooling
Ingersoll introduces integral collet tooling to connect to their Hi-PosMicro indexable end mills and Chip-Surfer solid carbide tipped tooling lines. Customers can replace worn tooling on their machines in seconds with 0.0005" axial and radial repeatability, the company says. The results are said to maximize the ri

Single-Spindle Productivity
High speed, five-axis machining on single-spindle machine tools helps this aerospace shop meet the demand for rapid, single-piece work flow.

High Velocity Profiler

Making Profilers More Productive
The trend in aircraft design is larger monolithic aluminum components that are lighter and stiffer than counterparts that are assembled from smaller pieces. Problem is, the larger, more complex parts necessitate significantly longer machining times on conventional horizontal-table profiling machines, underscoring the need for faster, more powerful profiling machines capable of machining a mix of such components quickly and efficiently.

Linear Motors Shorten Production Time
Linear motors account for part of the reason why DaimlerChrysler's Stuttgart, Germany, manufacturing facility has been able to nearly double the productivity of machining centers producing automotive cylinder heads.

Cutting The Cost Of Custom Machines
There is a gap between the price of one of this builder's custom machines and the maximum price that even many large contract shops can afford to pay for capital equipment. But that gap is getting smaller.


High Speed Machining: Aerospace -- Boeing's One Part Harmony
Faster, lighter cuts can let one solid part replace an assembly of hundreds of components. Better manufacturing and a better airplane both result. But before Boeing could realize these benefits, a more finely tuned process was needed.
