The heavy duty roll arm brackets for the 160 and 170 series attachments from CJ Winter increase bracket strength and durability for tough rolling applications, the company says. They are especially useful for shops looking to roll larger parts and coarser threads with a more rigid and stronger assembly, designed to reduce production issues and increase attachment life. The transition to a heavy duty bracket almost doubles the thickness of the bracket, making the bracket more rigid when the application requires higher rolling forces. The previous heavy duty brackets featured a design based on thicker sections added with welds, as opposed to the new machined pieces.

The new machined assembly was created to ease manufacturing with no loss in strength and provide more value to the customer, the company says. The brackets include longer fulcrum pins, the cover plate and other hardware necessary to fix the cover plate to the bracket.

    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.

  • Rolling Threads Has Advantages

    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.
