Turret Toolblock Adapter Helps Shop Succeed with Quick-Change Toolholder
Finding itself challenged to take full advantage of two new Y-axis lathes, Anthony Machine found a solution in Kennametal’s Turret Adapted Clamping Units which, combined with the KM quick-change toolholder, have reduced cycle times and setups significantly and reliably.
Kennametal’s Mill 4-12KT Features a Triangular Margin Design
Kennametal’s Mill 4-12KT tangential shoulder mills apply lower cutting forces and feature a triangular margin design enabling faster feeds without putting additional stress on the spindle, the company says.
Waterjet Nozzle Enables Longer Cuts
Kennametal’s APX series of Roctec waterjet nozzles are said to provide 20 percent longer operating life than the Roctec 500 series of tungsten carbide nozzles.
Boring System Contains Anti-Chatter Mechanism
Kennametal’s plug-and-play boring system contains an anti-chatter mechanism.
Overcoming Racing CNC Machine Shop Challenges
Automotive racing teams’ machine shops are essentially job shops. An IMTS panel discussion I moderated highlighted ways Stewart-Haas Racing’s shop meets the challenges of a high-mix/low-volume machining environment.
Helical Cutter Delivers High Metal Removal Rates, Low Cutting Forces
Kennametal’s Harvi Ultra 8X helical milling cutter was designed to meet high metal removal needs in aerospace machining as well as to provide machinists with a tool that can withstand higher cutting speeds but generate lower machining forces.
