Platinum Tooling Imports Henninger Speed Increasers
Platinum Tooling now imports speed increasers from Henninger. These spindle speeders include mechanical, air-driven and electric motor-driven styles are available to increase spindle speed. These systems are particularly useful for small-diameter tools that require more rpms than the machine tool spindle offers. Speeders enable using small-diameter tools that require more rpms than the machine spindle can offer. An additional benefit is said to be less wear on the machine spindle because it is not required to run at maximum rpm.
Mechanical speeders are available with gear ratios ranging to 1:8 and maximum speeds of 50,000 rpm. Air speeders can run continuously at up to 80,000 rpm, and high-frequency motor spindles can maintain up to 80,000 rpm with high torque and variable speed options. Many speeders have automatic tool change capabilities and are modular in design for application flexibility.
Consider these alternatives when conventional drilling can't do the job.
Simple process considerations can increase your productivity in milling titanium alloys.
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.
