Dallas Industries will feature its Zig-Zag servo feed for minimizing material scrap when running circle blanks. It has a one-, two- or three-out capacity, and the servo feed index cycle is made simultaneous with the cross-slide lateral travel, producing a diagonal stock movement in the automatic mode. The combination of the cross-slide lateral travel and diagonal stock movement minimizes the scrap generated when stamping out circles. 

The manual mode has forward and reverse indexing and cross-travel indexing. The absolute feedback of the cross-slide eliminates the need for homing, so the feed is ready at power-up. The servo is mounted on a linear bushing support base that travels perpendicular to the stock flow on case-hardened guideways. It is designed to provide optimized strip advance and lateral length based on material width, blank diameter and web thickness.

  • Troubleshooting Your Way Oil System

    An expensive lesson that many shops learn too late is that the automatic oil system on their CNC machine tool may not be completely automatic. Since the automatic oil system is designed to give a warning when the oil tank is empty, many machinists simply assume all is well if the alarm doesn't go off.

  • Running Unattended at Night Lets Machine Shop Serve New Customers During Day

    Precision Tool Technologies found capacity for diversification not by adding machines, people or space, but by freeing up time. Running unattended—running so it can machine through all 168 hours in the week—has enabled this shop to use hours when staff is present to deliver work that lands outside its established specialty. To achieve unattended machining, some of the biggest challenges have related to basic details such as chips and coolant.

  • A Separator Solves The Tramp Oil Problem

    With their strong attention to routine housekeeping, it's not surprising that this shop carefully researched all methods for removing tramp oil from coolant in machine sumps. If tramp oil is allowed to build up in the coolant, the resulting shop odor, smoke generation and unpleasant conditions for the operators will quickly undermine all efforts to keep a clean shop and maintain an optimum working environment.
