Tools Deburr Uneven, Intersecting, Interior Bore Edges
IMTS 2018: Heule Tool’s COFA-X tooling system is designed to remove burrs from uneven, interior bore edges with large intersections, such as valves, fittings and hydraulic manifolds.
Heule Tool’s COFA-X tooling system is designed to remove burrs from uneven interior bore edges with large intersections, such as valves, fittings and hydraulic manifolds. Other applications include cross holes with identical or nearly identical diameters, bores that merge into one another and crossing bores with offset centers.
According to the company, the tooling system eliminates secondary burrs. It reduces costs and improves cycles times for deburring operations usually completed manually. The system is pre-assembled with spring-loaded blade geometry to enable either front or back cutting. It is customized for application-specific projects. It is suitable for bore diameters of 4.0 mm and larger.
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.
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.
Running rotary milling cutters at the proper speeds and feeds is critical to obtaining long tool life and superior results, and a good place to start is with the manufacturer's recommendations. These formulas and tips provide useful guidelines.
