Testing Measures Impact of Toolholder Interface Rigidity

Though Big-Plus and HSK share superficial similarities, they differ fundamentally in how they clamp the holder--a difference with important implications.

“Spirograph” Generates Face Grooves on a Machining Center

Sandvik Coromant's unusual "SpiroGrooving" system uses an adjustable toolholder to machine API grooves on a machining center.

Alternate Coolant Delivery Method Made a Difference

Haimer's Cool Flash toolholder delivers coolant through small slits to cover the entire tool circumference.

A Formula for Cutting Tool Success

The hardness and toughness of a tool are generally counteractive forces, and finding the right mix can be a challenge. Wouldn’t it be nice to have both?

Systematic Success

A more efficient manufacturing process has enabled this manufacturer to ramp up production of its devices for the oil and gas industry.

Anti-Vibration System Improves Rigidity of Milling and Turning Assemblies

Seco's Steadyline anti-vibration damping holders are designed to improve the dynamic rigidity of milling and turning tool assemblies.

ISO 13399—A Key Step Toward Data-Driven Manufacturing

Decisions about the cutting tools used in machining operations are arguably among the most important in modern manufacturing.

Expanded Anti-Pullout System Enables Secure Titanium Milling with ER Collet Systems

Because of the extreme forces involved in machining titanium and other hard metals, it is necessary to take precautions to avoid pullout—the tendency for a cutting tool such as an end mill to gradually loosen in its holder and possibly be twis...

Ultrasonic-Assisted Machining with Standard Machines and Tools

A system to be marketed in 2015 will apply ultrasonic vibration from within the toolholder to reduce cutting force and improve the performance of the cut.

Eliminating Tool Pullout in Titanium Milling

Toolholder employs a secondary locking system to counter the high axial cutting forces encountered during the development of a tool for high-metal-removal-rate milling of titanium.
