Erowa PowerChuck P Enables Reliable Workpiece Palletization
IMTS Spark: The Erowa PowerChuck P is a universal interface for quick and precise positioning of palletized workpieces or fixtures on a machine table.
Erowa's Robot Easy 800 Transfers Workpieces Weighing 1,760 lbs
Erowa has expanded its Robot Easy line of products for machine tool loading and unloading with the Robot Easy 800 capable of transferring 800 kg (1,760 lbs).
Hitting the Zone with Five-Axis Machining
By investing in five-axis machining technology, Advance CNC Machining has done more than just add new capabilities to its roster. It has found a way to achieve something that most of us strive for: a way to work “in the zone.”
Chuck Enables Pneumatic Workholding
Eastec 2019: The Erowa PowerChuck P’s added feature is said to extend the application possibilities.
New Erowa SmartChucks Make Workholding Industry 4.0-Ready
Erowa unveils smart workholding and automation products at IMTS.
Redesigned Chucks Connect to Smartphones Via Bluetooth
IMTS 2018: Erowa’s SmartChucks line has been redesigned to combine precision and stability with wireless signal transmission.
Workpiece Clamping System for One-Offs, Small-Batch Parts
Amerimold 2017: The clamping elements of Erowa’s CleverClamp workpiece clamping system are specifically tailored to the manufacture of one-off and small-batch parts.
Workholding System for One-Offs Decreases Setup Times
The clamping elements of Erowa’s CleverClamp system are specifically designed for the manufacture of one-off and small-batch parts.
EDM Cell Cuts Lead Time in Half, Improves Quality
Sodick's AG60L sinker EDM and an Erowa Robot Compact helped Ford Tool and Machining LLC cut lead time in half when it needed to reduce downtime and increase repeatability.
Video: Time-Saving Workholding
Two Erowa workholding devices can help mold shops save time and work more efficiently.
A Big-Picture View of Micromachining
Matrix Tooling makes injection molds for components that have features you cannot see.
Cell Controller Boosts Production Flexibility
By serving as the “brains” of a cell consisting of two machining centers and a work delivery system, cell control software from Erowa helps this manufacturer run lights-out 24/7 and achieve 90-percent spindle utilization.
Beyond Milling or Grinding
Ultrasonic machining opens new possibilities for NASA engineers using previously unmachinable materials.
How Do You Equip a Startup Micromachining Shop?
A response to a reader’s question includes a checklist for launching a small shop focused on micromachining.
Fully Automatic Manufacturing Cell
Erowa Technology offers its Robot Dynamic modular system, which can be extended in all directions at any time.
Find Your Speed Outside of Machining
This short-lead-time mold shop achieves its most significant time savings by looking outside the machining cycle. However, one of those elements outside the cycle—palletized setup—ultimately led to cycle time savings via five-axis machining.
Too Small To Touch
Hummingbird takes on machining work that is too small for most shops to handle. In fact, Hummingbird tries not to handle it either. To accurately machine the tiniest parts, this shop relies on processes that are as hands-off as possible.
A Micro Machine Design
This machine has no toolholders and no tombstone—but there is a camera. Here are details of a machining center designed for micromachining.
Compact Handling Facility Sticks To Basics
Shops consider a number of factors when justifying automated parts storage systems, including cost, required floor space and machining application.
HSM Technology Enables Mold Maker To Boost Productivity
Founded in 1959, Advance Mold and Manufacturing, Inc. (AM&M) is located in a temperature-controlled production facility in Manchester, Connecticut. The 30,000-square-foot building also houses Vision Technical Molding (VTM), a custom molding operation specializing in complex, tight-tolerance medical products. VTM also QC-samples AM&M's molds. Although the two sides are separate businesses, they are also partners, connected within the same building. AM&M occupies 18,000 square feet of the building and employs 65 people working two shifts, 6 days per week.
On The Path To Automation
Implementing an integrated tooling system proved to be this mold shop's first step toward automated operation of its electrical discharge machines and graphite mills. Today, the shop's robotic cells can run around the clock in an unattended mode.
