Dielectric Fluid Provides Safe, Effective Flushing
IMTS 2018: Hirschmann Engineering’s IonoPlus 3000 dielectric fluid suits rough-cutting to fine finishing operations.
Self-Centering Vises Clamp Parts for Five-Axis Machining
Hirschmann offers self-centering vises designed to quickly and accurately clamp different types of workpieces for five-sided machining.
High Speed Leads to Lights-Out
This mold maker has become more competitive by establishing a high speed machining process that is predictable enough to confidently run lights-out.
Tips for Controlling Oxidation and Pitting on a Wire EDM
Additives, machine settings, workpiece materials and current technology are factors in avoiding common problems with unwanted rust and surface defects.
Hirschmann Engineering’s self-centering vise is designed for use in the System 9000 zero point reference system. This precision, self-centering vise provides a universal method of quickly clamping different types of workpieces for five-sided machining, the company says.
Rotary Indexing Spindle For EDM
Hirschmann Engineering has combined the H80R. MNCM high speed rotary indexing spindle with the H1625. AC3 fully programmable, variable speed AC control to produce miniature, round parts with small diameters and fine finishes.
Exploring Niches With New EDM Technologies
A shop specializing in wire EDM for large mold components now offers EDM “turning” of small, intricate parts. Despite the potential risks involved in early adoption of new technologies, the shop believes this practice gives it a leg-up on the competition and lets it gain experience with alternative machining techniques before offering them to customers.
Micro "Turning" Using Wire EDM
A high speed rotary spindle allows a wire EDM unit to turn round parts with diameters as small as 0.002 inches to a finish of 0.2 Ra while maintaining accurate concentricity.
Applying Creative Workholding Techniques
Not all parts can be fixtured by conventional workholding methods. Here are a few examples of ways that shops secure feisty workpieces for milling and turning operations.
Making Strides To Maximize Worker Efficiency
This 40-year-old shop combines original best practices with new technologies and manufacturing approaches to make the most of its home-grown skilled labor.
How To Handle Tall Wire EDM Work
Modular workpiece fixturing plays a vital role in this shop’s quest to win larger, more difficult wire EDM jobs.
