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.
Creating threaded holes in titanium alloys calls for proper techniques based on an understanding of both the properties of these materials and the peculiarities of the tapping process.
The right choices in tooling and technique can optimize the thread turning process.
Liquid coolant offers advantages unrelated to temperature. Forced air is the fluid of choice in this shop...but even so, conventional coolant can't be eliminated entirely.
