As seen in MMS

Video: What the Heck Is “Dengeling?”
Turns out it is a process that enables a five-axis machine to finish turbine blades after milling. Watch the video.

Milling Machine’s Spindle Increases Performance
The Ecospeed F 1540 milling machine from Starrag is designed for medium-size structural components used in the aerospace and energy business.

Turn-Mill Performs Six-Sided Machining without Interruption
Bumotec’s s191FTLR seven-axis turn-mill from Starrag is designed to start with a plain bar and finish parts such as aircraft pinion regulators complete in a single setup.

Video of Interesting Turbine Blade Workholding System
This clamping system is an automated steady rest with measuring capability that stabilizes the five-axis machining process of very long turbine blades.

Video: Applying “Dengeln” for Finishing Turbine Blades
This alternative to grinding, polishing and shot peening enables turbine blades to be machined and polished in one setup.

Five-Axis Machine Offers High Dynamics for Complex Workpieces
The Heckert HEC 800 X5 MT five-axis machining center, available from Starrag, provides productivity, process reliability and precise cutting in a single clamping.

Machines Offer Parallel Kinematics for Aluminum Components
Dörries Scharmann Technology (DST), a subsidiary of Starrag Group, extends its Ecospeed range of parallel kinematics machines for productive machining of aluminum structural components in the aerospace industry.

HMC Delivers Turning, Drilling, Milling with Single Clamping
The Heckert DBF 630 HMC, available from Starrag, enables turning, drilling and milling of non-rotational, asymmetrical parts in a single clamping with one toolholder.

Cryogenic Tool Cooling Improves Hard Metal Milling
Developed in conjunction with tools from Walter AG, Starrag now offers a cryogenic CO2 cooling system for its machine tools, capable of increasing productivity with high-strength materials such as high-alloy steels by as much as 70 percent, according to the company.

Machining Centers Offer High Repeat Accuracy
Available from Starrag, Bumotec SA’s S-191 Linear series of CNC turning/milling centers uses linear motors to ensure maximum precision and reliable repeat accuracy when processing gold, silver or platinum for producing parts such as watch components, medical implants and instruments.

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...

Getting A Visual On Machine Maintenance
A software package allows real-time process monitoring of machine tools in operation. Its graphical interface speeds fault identification and machine servicing.

Reducing Production Costs Keeps Processes In-House
When the Fendt Component production department identified the need to reduce the production costs associated with the development of transmission housings by 50 percent, it realized that failure to meet this target would require outsourcing, resulting in the loss of a considerable number of jobs. A team consisting of a tool manufacturer, a machine supplier and component production specialists met this challenge, with tooling playing an instrumental role.

On The Cusp--Faster Machining Or Finer Surfaces?
According to developers, the main feature of this new milling method is the ability to calculate a cutter location that optimizes the orientation of a milling cutter on the surface to be machined.
