Briney Tooling Systems offers its Tru Position line of end mill holders with a reduced total indicator reading (TIR) of 0.0002", achieved via internal eccentric grinding. Less runout means a more even chip load with less chatter. Other benefits of the toolholder include fewer tool passes to mill slots thanks to improved on-center rotation, reduced machining time and improved machining quality, says the company. Briney adds that these toolholders provide twice the cutting tool life of other conventional end mill holders, reducing cutting tool replacement costs by as much as half.

    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.

  • Too Small To Touch

    Hummingbird takes on machining work that is too small for most shops to handle. In fact, Hummingbird tries not to handle it either. To accurately machine the tiniest parts, this shop relies on processes that are as hands-off as possible.

  • 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.
