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.

    Functional gear testing, also known as total radial composite deviation, is a method of looking at the total effect of gear errors. This test method simulates the conditions under which a set of gears is likely to operate as a result of the gears meshing together.

  • Measuring Part Geometry On The Shop Floor

    Measuring workpiece dimensions is relatively simple for machine operators but measuring workpiece geometry which involves more complex comparisons of part shape to an ideal shape--is now also practical on the shop floor. The gaging equipment for doing this is coming down in price while becoming easier to use.
