DMG / Mori Seiki USA will demonstrate a range of gear machining capabilities, highlighting gearMill software and Sandvik Coromant’s InvoMilling process. InvoMilling will be demonstrated on the company’s NT-series multitasking machines and NLX-series three-axis lathes, while the DMU-series and NT machines will showcase five-axis gear-machining capabilities. Traditional gear-machining processes such as hobbing, gashing and broaching will also be displayed on the NLX three-axis lathes. A variety of gears, including spiral bevels, spur, helical and internal gears, will be machined on these platforms.

Methods Seeks the Perfect Machining Environment

With its new Precision Center, Methods Machine Tools is locking down environmental variables that could impact machining processes. Why? So North American manufacturers will no longer need to send parts, tooling and material to Japan or somewhere else to have intricate, sensitive or challenging test cuts performed.

  • Pinch Milling from Top to Bottom

    A multitasking (turnmill) machine that can mill a workpiece top and bottom at the same time has advantages for long, slender workpieces such as turbine blades, propellers and aerospace structural components. Includes video.

  • B-Axis Turn/Mills Have Their Place

    The additional rotary milling axis on these machines allows them to complete many types of complex parts in a single setup, but these machines have gained a reputation for being difficult to program. Today’s CAM software, however, eases the programming challenge significantly.

  • Hobbing on a Turning Center

    This manufacturer’s use of live-tool lathes overcomes labor cost in various ways. One of the latest sources of savings involves bringing another operation—hobbing—into these machines. INCLUDES VIDEO.
