Machining Micro Parts for Medical
This shop’s micromachining needs, primarily for medical components, ultimately led to the development of a new multifunction turning center platform geared toward producing tiny parts complete.
Challenge Machine continues to add high-speed equipment for the increasing amount of micromachining work it is performing. Here are some lessons it has learned along the way, using tools as small as 0.001 inch in diameter.
Partners Aim to Improve Micromachining Efficiency
Under a new partnership and distribution agreement, Microlution (Chicago, Illinois) will offer CAD/CAM software and post processors from Cimatron Technologies (Novi, Michigan) to users of its line of CNC micromachining centers.
A Micro Machine Design
This machine has no toolholders and no tombstone—but there is a camera. Here are details of a machining center designed for micromachining.
