Toolholder assemblies for an upcoming job can be measured in seconds using a presetter, without the machine being interrupted.

 

We all know what opinions are like. That said, I thought of five pieces of ancillary machining equipment that I feel many shops can leverage to their success:

  • Tool vending systems
  • Tool presetters
  • Machine tool probes
  • High-pressure coolant delivery
  • Shopfloor CMMs

Learn why.

  • Where Dry Milling Makes Sense

    Liquid coolant offers advantages unrelated to temperature. Forced air is the fluid of choice in this shop...but even so, conventional coolant can't be eliminated entirely.

  • Inserts For Difficult Materials

    Economic efficiency is an important consideration when choosing tools for challenging metals.

  • Tool Considerations for High Speed Cutting

    Fast CNC processing and high-pressure coolant contribute to removing metal at dramatic rates. But what should a shop know about cutting tools in high speed machining?
