Through-Coolant for Swiss Machines

This system allows shops to quickly transform the standard external-coolant live tooling heads on their turning machine turrets into those with through-tool-coolant capability.


Optimized Machining out of the Box

Four tooling-related companies partner to supply dynamically stable milling for improved productivity on existing machine tools. Users do not have to measure the dynamics of their machines. Instead, tooling tailored to the machine arrives as a compl...


What to Consider When Adding Angle Heads

Angle heads can enable a three-axis machine tool to be more versatile. That said, this shop explains that there’s more to getting started using them than simply loading them into a machine’s spindle.


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.
