EMUGE'S NEW CUTTING TOOL TECHNOLOGY CENTER
Emuge recently opened a new technology center, located at the company’s North American headquarters in West Boylston, MA, USA. The center, designed to be a full-service resource for manufacturers to apply cutting tool application strategies, is equipped with the latest 3 and 5-axis vertical machining centers, precision measuring devices and tool monitoring, in addition to an interactive classroom for training and seminars. The technology center will serve customers across the U.S. and Canada, enabling manufacturing professionals to test cut their applications and develop milling, drilling, and threading strategies to optimize tool life and performance and reduce cycle times.
“Our new Technology Center was conceived as a resource for manufacturers to test new machining concepts and tools without tying up their valuable machines and manufacturing time,” explained Bob Hellinger, President of Emuge Corp. “Our tooling engineers work directly with customers to replicate actual machining processes and develop new tooling and application parameters with complete documentation.”
Three major services offered at the Emuge Corp. Technology Center include Test Cuts, CNC Programming Assistance and Comprehensive Training:
For the Test Cuts Program, customers can provide Emuge sample parts and prints for evaluation by experienced Emuge tooling engineers. Once approved, test cuts are performed and documented, along with optimal recommended solutions and strategies developed by Emuge.
For CNC Programming Assistance, Emuge programmers work closely with industry leading CAD/CAM provides such as Mastercam, Open Mind and others, to help the user generate maximum machining performance and incorporate optimal tool designs. Emuge will provide customers programing assistance, a wide range of CAM tools for solving complex applications, efficient toolpaths, sub routines and optimization.
Emuge also provides Training and Development in an interactive classroom supported by CNC machining equipment for hands-on, real-time training. Training and seminars will be offered throughout the year on various topics, or custom training can be provided to meet the needs of individual companies.
Emuge has also recently introduced complete tool reconditioning services at the West Boylston, MA facility, which now also houses a state-of-the-art tool grinding/manufacturing center for refurbishing Emuge tools.

Add Punch Tapping to the List of Thread-Machining Options
Emuge has introduced the Punch Tap, a new class of tool for rapidly threading holes in aluminum.
Tap Forms Internal Threads in Half a Second
Emuge’s Punch Tap enables helical thread forming in cast and wrought aluminum alloys, as well as similar lightweight materials.
Circle Segment End Mills Increase Material Removal
With so much happening in a busy show year between NPE2018 and Amerimold 2018, MoldMaking Technology is revisiting some of the technology that was on display. In case you missed it: At IMTS 2018, Emuge Corp has circle segment cutters, a class of end mills designed to enable more material removal with fewer passes in five-axis machining.
Understanding Circle-Segment Milling Tools
The circle-segment cutter represents a class of milling tool in which the CAM software is key for using the tool effectively. Cutting profiles presented at the proper angles realize cycle-time reductions in contoured workpieces such as molds. A CAM company engineer discusses the role of this tooling.
