Portable Multitasking Machine Accommodates Difficult-to-Move Parts
IMTS 2018: Lagun Engineering’s MFP portable boring, milling, face-turning, drilling and tapping machine is designed to be assembled through several steel vertical plates with openings.
Designed for on-site machining of parts that are difficult or expensive to move, Lagun Engineering’s MFP is a portable system assembled through several steel vertical plates with openings. Through these openings, the machine can perform boring, milling, face turning, drilling and tapping operations on stationary parts.
The machine is suitable for the military, shipbuilding, heavy construction and fabrication, power generation and turbine, and large vale manufacturing industries.
Economic efficiency is an important consideration when choosing tools for challenging metals.
Fast CNC processing and high-pressure coolant contribute to removing metal at dramatic rates. But what should a shop know about cutting tools in high speed machining?
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.
