LMC Workholding now offers face drivers and live centers from Tecnologie FRB, a company which designs and manufactures products incorporating advanced technology in turning, gear cutting and grinding.

The FRB face drivers feature a mechanical compensating system, which is said to be highly adjustable and reliable in the most difficult conditions. Work positioning is maintained with optimal repeatability.  The use of centers with slots also enables turning of pipe or other workpieces with holes in the end.   

The live centers offer exclusive axial load distribution, allowing for higher feed rates and deeper cuts. A very high live center thrust can also be applied to the process.        

LMC makes all types of workholding with a heavy emphasis currently on rotational workholding and aluminum wheel manufacturing systems.

  • Holding Small Parts for Effective Machining on a CNC Router

    A non-woven porous material with a special coating enables vacuum chucks and tables to hold sheets of metal and other materials more effectively on CNC routing machines. The material, called Vilmill, is used as a substrate between the sheet or plate material to be machined and a suitable vacuum table or vacuum chuck where it is held securely in place by the vacuum.

  • A Study Of The Steady Rest

    When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine without distorting or deflecting the part, many manufacturers turn to the steady rest as a workpiece support device. This is especially true for long axles, shafts and similar parts used in automotive or heavy equipment applications, and in oil drilling components. The most common application is to support a workpiece during turning or milling and, increasingly, during secondary operations such as ID drilling, boring and producing end face bolthole patterns.
