Renishaw has added a ¼ 20 imperial thread size to its existing metrology fixture product range. Fixturing components are currently available in M4, M6 and M8 thread sizes. The ¼ 20 thread size addition means a complete fixturing solution can now be created for any part regardless of its size, shape or material, says the company.

A range of modular and custom fixturing and software is available for use with coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), Renishaw Equator gages and vision systems. Using high-quality metrology fixtures is said to improve throughput, reproducibility and accuracy of inspection processes with repeatable fixturing setups.

    The irregularity of a machined surface is the result of the machining process, including the choice of tool; feed and speed of the tool; machine geometry; and environmental conditions. This irregularity consists of high and low spots machined into a surface by the tool bit or a grinding wheel.

  • Composites Machining for the F-35

    Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
