Presetting Becomes Prevalent
Next Intent implemented presetting and shrink-fit toolholding when it bought a five-axis machining center, but it has since seen these resources deliver value to machining centers throughout the shop.
A Preview of Houstex 2013
This slideshow provides a sneak peek at some of the technologies that will be on display at Houstex 2013.
The Big Step Up
A small shop added two new machines, each of which is more advanced than any of the previous machine tools the company has used. One of the co-owners committed to the work of bringing both of these machines fully into service. Here is the shop’s experience so far.
Tool Presetter is Cost-Effective Alternative
Koma Precision’s bench-mounted Larth tool presetter features a ground granite base and column, stainless steel construction and ergonomic design combined with a 5.7" TFT LCD touchscreen.
Automated machining processes enable this maker of high-performance mountain bike parts to manufacture efficiently with minimal staff.
Measure Tools While Machines Are Cutting
For busy shops facing production constraints, presetters increase machining center capacity.
Complete Range of Tool Presetters
Sales, service and support are available for a complete range of tool presetters from Italian manufacturer Elbo Controlli.
Last Glance at IMTS 2010
It would be impossible to cover all of the key exhibitors at IMTS 2010—even if every booth got merely a quick glance. However, the editors of MMS did get glimpses of some interesting technologies exhibited at the show...
Drop Trunnion Tilting Rotary Table
Distributed by Koma, the Tsudakoma RT-111,AA drop-trunnion tilting rotary table features a design in which the top surface of the spindle is the center line of the tilt axis. Two pneumatic rotary joints on the rotary axis allow automated clamping/unclamping of the System 3R chuck and pallet system.
Angle Head For Makino HMCs
Koma Precision stocks Alberti Slimline T90sl-0,3 angle heads, which are customized for Makino MAG3 HMCs. The angle heads feature an HSK 80F shank and a high speed NSK output, which can be equipped with a variety of micro-machining NSK tools.
Compact, High Speed Rotary Tables
Tsudakoma TN-101, TN-131, TN-161 and TN-201 compact, high speed, tilting rotary tables from Koma Precision use a dual taper, double-disc braking mechanism, which generates massive clamp torque—an increase of 320 percent when compared to previous models. The one-piece monoblock frame construction permits maximum rigidity. The tables feature an indexing and tilting repeatability of ±2 arcseconds and are available with a full range of options including rotary scales and various chucks and collets.
Automation Helps Move To High-Volume Production
This tool manufacturer had to automate its processes after switching from low-volume special orders to high-volume production runs. Since implementing Tsudakoma tilting rotary tables along with robotics and a pallet conveyor, the shop has increased sales by 400 percent.
