The Haimer Microset VIO Linear presetting machine offers fully automatic measuring cycles for maximum operating convenience. It has a user-friendly operating panel that machinists with varying skill levels can use. The linear drive also offers a fast, silent and accurate approach, the company says.
Microset tool presetting machines are said to increase machine utilization while streamlining tool setting processes. Designed for ease of use with uncomplicated software and a stable cast iron base, the company says that Microset provides a high degree of tool measurement accuracy and process reliability.
With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.
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.
