The brochure provides specifications for the company’s drill tubes and thread adapters, threaded starts and flange connections, driver systems, vibration damping assemblies, rotating pressure head systems, bushing systems, and more, as well as an overview of its deep-hole drilling machine series.
Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.
One of the most common methods of tapping in use today on CNC machines is 'rigid tapping' or 'synchronous feed tapping.' A rigid tapping cycle synchronizes the machine spindle rotation and feed to match a specific thread pitch. Since the feed into the hole is synchronized, in theory a solid holder without any tension-compression can be used.
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.
