Artistry with Skive Tools
Oliver Wendell Holmes said, “All limitations are self-imposed.” This statement often holds true as machinists apply their creativity in skiving applications.
More Effective Deep-Hole Drilling with MQL
A dual-margin design enables a series of drills from Nachi to create holes with large length-to-diameter ratios with minimum quantity lubrication.
Standardized Parameters Make Unattended Machining Predictable and Reliable
Standardized parameters for specific material and cutting tool combinations help this hard milling specialist manage a highly varied workload with minimal labor.
Contour-Following Stylus Speeds Dot-Peen Marking
Capability to mark surfaces at widely varying heights and difficult-to-reach areas makes pneumatic systems more competitive by reducing the need for special fixtures and other accessories.
Standard Tool Classification for Better Data Communication
Cutting tool manufacturers have worked together to create a generic tool catalog format that helps link cutting tool information with applications supporting data-driven manufacturing.
Toothed Edge Extends Button Insert Advantages
Particularly for long reach applications, a button insert with a serrated edge can provide greater stability, less heat-generating friction and better chip evacuation than one without.
Re-Turning Adds Life to Train Wheels
The Cutter Affects Capacity
New machine tools allowed CTG to cut cycle time by 75 percent, but that wasn’t enough. Finding the right tool and process cut that cycle time further, giving the oil-industry manufacturer the capacity needed to support an important new product.
When Thread Milling Makes Sense
Threading a workpiece is a fundamental metalworking process that every manufacturing engineer takes for granted.
