Road Report: Wish You Were Here—Day 2
Our editors travel the world searching out the latest manufacturing technology. Read what Chris Koepfer, editor-in-chief of Production Machining, is learning about in Germany.
The WSI system consists of a coolant-through holder available in standard diameters, as well as infinite-length-adjustable ID turning inserts designed for optimal stability.
Thread Manufacturing On Bone Screws
Schwanog’s medical technology project report explains the single machining process on Swiss-type lathes using the company’s special whirling systems. It also describes the post-manufacturing process on thread milling and/or thread whirling machines.
Insertable Form Tool System Maximizes Efficiency
Schwanog’s insertable form tool system is suited for complex, turned parts. According to the company, the wear and tear of common form drills increase change-over time, thereby increasing cost.
Radial ID Turning
Schwanog says its WPI system facilitates precise and efficient internal plunge cuts for IDs ranging from 8 to 15 mm. Instead of tracing the contour when single-point turning, the geometry is machined simultaneously using a form insert. The system consists of a round shank holder with a coolant-through feature and a ground carbide form insert.
