When to use Split-Laser, On-Machine Tool Measurement Probes
There is value in using compact, on-machine laser probes to automatically measure cutting tools and detect broken tools. However, for some applications, a larger split-laser system is needed.

Make Large Prototypes on a Small 3D Printer
To prove out the designs of brackets that are much larger than its 3D printer, this manufacturer prints the bracket models in pieces and assembles them into prototypes.

Five-Axis Machine Blends Power, Small Work Zone
A manufacturer of blisks and impellers needed to quickly find a new five-axis machining center, or risk losing a lucrative job. Two new VMCs fit the shop’s requirements and provided unexpected benefits. (Includes video.)

Little Things Mean A Lot
The design of a machining center with the precision to mill tiny features illustrates what is (and is not) required for micromachining.

Successfully Feeding The Medical Market
This medical shop has adopted five-axis, bar-fed machining technology to adapt to compressed delivery schedules and increasingly complex part geometries.


Steering To Greater Flexibility
Re-tool aging dedicated machines? For this plant, it makes more sense to spend a bit more to replace them with new, more flexible, machining centers.

When Little Things Mean A Lot
Measurement technology plays a role on machining centers used at high speeds.

Laser advantages

Don't Touch That Tool
Tool measurement is critical to the metalcutting process. Exact knowledge of a cutter’s length, diameter, even profile, and the ability to measure and monitor these dimensions over time, can reduce variability and help optimize the process. Here’s a look at how non-contact tool measurement and breakage detection benefit your metalcutting process.
