Adapter Enables Automated Deburring with Wheel Brushes
Tanis offers its Shell Mill Adapter for wheel brushes, designed to simplify wheel brush attachment to CNC machines and enable automated deburring. The adapter plates are placed on both sides of a wheel brush and secured with a bolt that runs through a centrally located opening into the shell mill holder. Set screws prevent the brush from rotating. The lightweight and durable aluminum adapter is compatible with Tanis wheel brushes ranging from 2" to 14" in diameter.
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?
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.
Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.
