The new membership of Velocity/Briney brings the Velocity Smart Tool to use with Okuma machines.

Okuma America Corp. (Charlotte, North Carolina) has announced that Velocity/Briney is the newest member to join Partners in THINC. Velocity/Briney supplies its Velocity Smart Tool CNC machine toolholding solution exclusively for Okuma machining centers.

Velocity Smart Tool is a collaboration of four U.S. suppliers: Velocity Products, Briney Tooling Systems, BlueSwarf and Fullerton Tool. Smart Tool is fully assembled, balanced, preset and ready to run. It is said to remove toolholding guesswork for optimal cutting. BlueSwarf Dashboard is included, enabling machining at maximum speeds, feeds and cutting depths for a specific operation or part on an Okuma machine tool.

Velocity Products (Huntsville, Alabama), a division of Morris Group Inc., serves as the marketing and sales face of Velocity/Briney.

“Velocity/Briney works closely with Okuma and its distributor network to deliver products that are designed, tuned and optimized for specific Okuma machining center models,” says Robert Bauer, vice president of Morris Group and head of its Velocity Products division.

  • Measuring Taper For Toolholders And Spindle Applications

    Companies concerned about strict quality requirements regularly check toolholder tapers for wear or inaccuracy because these conditions can jeopardize the results of a critical operation. However, a shop can check tapers quickly and reliably with air gages. These devices can be used effectively without special operator training. For measuring taper in a production environment, few other methods can match the speed and performance of air, as multiple-circuit air jets can be placed in very small taper gages.

  • Ultrasonic-Assisted Machining with Standard Machines and Tools

    A system to be marketed in 2015 will apply ultrasonic vibration from within the toolholder to reduce cutting force and improve the performance of the cut.

    Far from being outdated by the latest machine tool technology, angle heads often prove an ideal complement by pushing done-in-one capabilities even further. Proper application, however, requires attention to their limitations as well as their benefits.
