Effective Plastic Machining Requires Effective Chip Control

Clean, burr-free cutting is fundamental to competitiveness for a shop that specializes in micro-machining complex geometry from some of the softest materials in the industry.


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.


Micromachining Evolution

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.


Purpose Built Micromachining Center

In metalworking, it is rare to find new approaches to well-established technologies; usually new developments are major or minor upgrades to known elements. This micromachining center is rewriting the rulebook.


Making Micro Threads

Production of micro threads can be challenging, but using the most suitable tools for a given application can simplify the task.


The Promise of Waterjet Technology for Micromachining

The potential benefits of using waterjet technology to produce parts or part features smaller than 300 microns are compelling. Developers and researchers are getting close to breaking the barriers that stand in the way of micromachining in the 150- ...


Cutting a Micron at a Time

When the task is to remove very small amounts of material, this process may be the answer.


Turning to an Alternative for Small, Complex Work

The QuickTech TT-42 from Absolute Machine Tools provides many of the same advantages as a Swiss-type lathe for small, complex parts that don’t justify the use of a guide bushing.


Keeping Watch on Small Parts

From watch parts to exotic medical applications, this shop takes on the world of micromachining.
