Dynamet, a subsidiary of Carpenter Technology, says its titanium Ultrabar offers tight dimensional tolerances and quality roundness, straightness and finish requirements while maintaining consistency from end-to-end and lot-to-lot. Designed for small precision parts on Swiss-type machines, the bar is suited for posts, abutments and healing caps in dental implants as well as for parts in other industries requiring exacting dimensional tolerances.


The company says the bar works well with automatic feeders and can be run at high speeds and feeds because it moves efficiently through guide bushings. It is designed to reduce vibration, interruptions in production and downtime for machine adjustments. In addition, its dimensional tolerance and size consistency eliminate the need for conversion grinding, the company says. Offered in several medical grades, the bar is available in diameters ranging from 0.11811" (3 mm) to 0.47244" (12 mm). Lengths range to 14' (4.26 m).

    What’s it going to cost? How much space do I need? What environmental hassles will I encounter? How steep is the learning curve? Exactly what is anodizing? Here are answers to preliminary questions shops have about bringing anodizing in-house. 

  • A Model Camshaft Grinding Process

    Optimizing a camshaft lobe grinding cycle has traditionally been based less on science and more on educated guesswork and numerous test grinds. Now, computer thermal modeling software can predict areas where lobe burning is likely to occur, in order to determine the fastest possible work speed that won't thermally damage lobes and greatly reduce the number of requisite test grinds.
