Emuge to Host Cutting Tech Expo in November
The event will offer tours of Emuge’s newly expanded facility, introductions to the company’s tapping and milling tool technology, as well as live machining demonstrations.
Emuge Corp. will host a Cutting Tech Expo November 7, 2019, at its newly expanded manufacturing facility and tech center headquarters in West Boylston, Massachusetts. The event will offer tours of the new facility, introductions to the company’s tapping and milling tool technology, as well as live machining demonstrations.
“For manufacturers who are unable to attend EMO this year, our Cutting Tech Expo is an excellent opportunity to see firsthand the innovative, cutting-edge Emuge technologies that are being unveiled to the world,” says Bob Hellinger, president.
An introduction to Emuge's facility expansion and increased manufacturing capabilities will kick off the event, followed by a presentation of new products and technologies. Among the highlights will be Emuge’s new Taptor drilling and tapping tool as well as end mills designed for hybrid subtractive/additive manufacturing platforms. Attendees will also see live machining demonstrations, including a live Punch Tap application — a first for a North American Emuge event. Other demonstrations will focus on circle-segment machining and other five-axis milling applications on Hurco and Hermle machining centers.
To register, attendees are instructed to RSVP by October 21 by calling 508-595-3605 or by visiting emuge.com/signup/tech-expo.
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?
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.
Running rotary milling cutters at the proper speeds and feeds is critical to obtaining long tool life and superior results, and a good place to start is with the manufacturer's recommendations. These formulas and tips provide useful guidelines.
