How AM Is Advancing into Cutting Tools: Photos from EMO
The design freedom of additive manufacturing delivers increased performance to cutting tools. At the world’s leading exposition for machine tools, I saw various examples of this.
Plunge-Milling System for Finishing
LMT Kieninger will display its SpeedLift milling head system designed for finishing passport and guide surfaces.
Thread-Rolling Heads Save Time
LMT’s thread-rolling head systems can be used on virtually any machine tool including basic engine lathes, pillar drills, rotary transfer machines, NC and CNC lathes, and machining centers, among others.
Cutters For Composite Machining
LMT Onsrud’s diamond film-coated compression tool is suited for machining composite materials. The cutter geometry features a spiral design in which the upcut and downcut spiral flutes intersect from both directions and push the individual layers of the composite material together.
Nano Technology Improves Insert Coating Adhesion
The needle-like surface structure of this TiCN insert coating interlocks with a succeeding layer of aluminum oxide to enable the insert to resist both heat and abrasion.
Lathe Toolholders For Turning Away
Think 'unattended machining,' and the image in your mind is probably complex - that is, some machining process that relies on automation more than the typical machining process does. But does going unattended have to involve this complexity? Instead of requiring automation, allowing the operator to step away from the machine tool might just be a matter of addressing the sources of worry that keep that operator engaged.
Rolling Threads Has Advantages
With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.
Axial Thread Rolling For CNC Lathe Users
This article is aimed at shops that have already decided to thread roll with their CNC turning centers and would appreciate more process information.
