Modular Connection System for Drilling, Boring, Tapping
Allied Machine & Engineering offers Wohlhaupter’s MVS modular connection system.
Allied Machine & Engineering offers Wohlhaupter’s MVS modular connection system. Part of the Multibore collection, the MVS connection is a flexible system designed primarily for drilling and boring, with application possibilities in tapping, end milling and light shell milling.
The MVS connection is a modular connection that enables the use of extended lengths or reduced diameters by using a series of components engineered for flexible adaptation. Four sizes are available to accommodate the diameter range of the boring required: MVS 50-28, 63-36, 80-36 and 100-56. Operators can easily build and change tooling components, and this flexibility enables the system to work accurately for almost any project’s needs, the company says.
The MVS connection offers a mating and clamping draw force of approximately 1,900 psi provided by a three-point triangular system. The pressure points are an equal 120 degrees apart, providing high rigidity, high performance capability and a total system accuracy of 3 microns. The system holds tolerances of 0.002 microns ID to OD and a consistent 0.002 microns of parallelism between mating surfaces.
Applying ceramic inserts is not a simple substitution of one cutting tool material for another. There are significant process considerations that shops should examine carefully in order to realize performance and tool life expectations from ceramic inserts. Here's a look at some of the ways they are used.
To make the transition to hard turning, you'll need to switch from carbide to CBN inserts, but that is easier (and more economical) than you might think. It's making the jump to much higher surface speeds that might scare you off. It needn't. Here's why.
Running rotary milling cutters at the proper speeds and feeds is critical to obtaining long tool life and superior results, and a good place to start is with the manufacturer's recommendations. These formulas and tips provide useful guidelines.
