How to Increase Machining Efficiency through Machine Monitoring
A manufacturer that is distinctive for its attention to in-cycle machining productivity describes its efforts to obtain efficiency improvements outside of the machining cycle. The shop’s primary tool is a simple, daily, graphical recap that illustra...
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.
The Costs and Benefits of Horizontal Machining
The shift from vertical to horizontal machining was even more expensive than this shop anticipated. It was also more valuable. Most of the shop’s machining centers are HMCs now—here’s why.
High Speed Leads to Lights-Out
This mold maker has become more competitive by establishing a high speed machining process that is predictable enough to confidently run lights-out.
Maximizing Power for High Speed Hog-outs
A reader asks a question related to the rated power of a machine tool spindle.
Improving Surface Finish During High Speed Machining
Many factors can affect surface finish. This answer to a reader’s question focuses on imbalance and frequency sensitivity.
The Online Optimizer
Coming soon: The Machine Tool Genome Project promises to let almost any machine shop use its machining centers more productively. Shops will benefit from tap-test findings without personally tapping any of their own machines or tools.
Software/Tooling Partnership Promises Easier HSM
High-efficiency parameters are calculated automatically—partly using a slider that lets the programmer set the level of aggressiveness.
How to Overcome an Acc/Dec Limitation in High Speed Machining
A small pocket in a graphite workpiece limits productivity. Part of the expert’s response is to consider how a lower feed rate might actually be more productive—because the machine will spend more time at the programmed rate.
