Part Washing, Deburring Systems Save on Water, Waste Costs
Sugino introduces its Zippel brand of industrial part washing and deburring systems. The Zippel machines are custom-designed and built to maximize the cleaning quality, cost effectiveness, and eco-friendliness of each individual application.
Zippel’s aqueous-based cleaning systems combine economy and ecology, delivering clean parts while minimizing both production costs and environmental impact, Sugino says In addition to saving on water and waste costs, Zippel’s systems can reduce energy costs by recovering waste heat from the process flow.
The full range of cleaning systems include chamber, inline, rotary transfer, robotic washing, immersion and spray-immersion types. To further reduce production times and part handling, the systems also support automation via robotics, conveyors, pick-and-place systems and more.
With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.
One of the most common methods of tapping in use today on CNC machines is 'rigid tapping' or 'synchronous feed tapping.' A rigid tapping cycle synchronizes the machine spindle rotation and feed to match a specific thread pitch. Since the feed into the hole is synchronized, in theory a solid holder without any tension-compression can be used.
Consider these alternatives when conventional drilling can't do the job.
