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.


Presetting Becomes Prevalent

Next Intent implemented presetting and shrink-fit toolholding when it bought a five-axis machining center, but it has since seen these resources deliver value to machining centers throughout the shop.


ER Collet Chuck and Quick-Change System in One Toolholder

This quick-change system is aimed at addressing cost concerns for companies focused on conserving costs and improving productivity.


Turning Heads with Presetters

As lathes and turning machines pivot toward quick-change tooling models from traditional stick tools, presetters present benefits of keeping chips flying while reducing human error and increasing precision.


8 Easy Tips for Spindle and Toolholder Hygiene

A minute chip floating in coolant swarf left to dry on a toolholder taper can eventually become a serious interference at the machine tool spindle-toolholder interface.


Holder Design Locks Tools in Place

Tough to machine materials, aggressive metal removal rates and long, awkward tool overhangs are machining conditions that require toolholders to perform flawlessly and provide strong gripping force, high precision and vibration control.


Put Shrink-Fit Tooling to the Test

Metalworking offers its fair share of challenges, and shrink-fit tooling is one of them.


Flexible, Quick-Change Tool Adapter System

Before the development of live tooling, there were turning centers and machining centers. Processing parts with multiple operations that included turning and milling required moving the workpieces from one machine tool to another.
