Emuge Appoints National Accounts Manager
With a background in machining, Scott Lowe has previously worked at Kennametal and Guhring.
Emuge Corp. has announced the appointment of Scott Lowe as national accounts manager for the United States and Canada. In his new position, Mr. Lowe is responsible for developing and managing channel partner relations with key customers, distributors and integrated suppliers of Emuge products.
“I am very pleased to welcome Scott to Emugeto further strengthen our sales organization and market share in the evolving product distribution landscape,” says Bob Hellinger, president. “He brings with him valuable management and cutting tool experience, working for over 25 years with sales and distribution in metalworking manufacturing.”
Prior to joining Emuge, Mr. Lowe worked over 13 years at Kennametal as senior applications engineer and then sales manager. Prior to Kennametal, he held a territory sales role for nearly five years at cutting tool manufacturer Guhring. Early in his career, Mr. Lowe completed the General Electric Machinist Apprentice Program and was a machinist at General Electric for 11 years.
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.
Cutting holes by interpolating a face milling cutter may be a better process choice for many rough and even finish boring operations. Software improvements and better cutter designs allow expanding use of the versatile face mill for hole making.
The more common twist drill point geometries often are not the best for the job at hand. By choosing the best point for the material being drilled, it is possible to achieve better tool life, hole geometry, precision, and productivity.
