LNS America's Spray Cabin Isolates Contaminants While Cleaning Parts
IMTS Spark: The Fox SC2 330 spray cabin from LNS is designed to safely use compressed air to blow off parts prior to their next operation while keeping the air and shop surfaces clean.
LNS' ChipBlaster Improves Chip Evacuation and Tool Life
EMO 2019: LNS America’s ChipBlaster line is comprised of high-pressure coolant systems, coolant chillers and cyclonic filtration systems.
In Lights-Out Machining, Part Loading Is Not the Problem — Here is How This Shop Handles Unloading
Correct unloading of the parts affects part quality as well as the capacity of the unattended machining system. Here is more of the experience from our “168” shop.
Running Unattended at Night Lets Machine Shop Serve New Customers During Day
Precision Tool Technologies found capacity for diversification not by adding machines, people or space, but by freeing up time. Running unattended—running so it can machine through all 168 hours in the week—has enabled this shop to use hours when staff is present to deliver work that lands outside its established specialty. To achieve unattended machining, some of the biggest challenges have related to basic details such as chips and coolant.
Die Manufacturer Embraces IIoT to Move to Shorter-Run Production
As a punch and die supplier’s customers implemented leaner strategies, it needed to shift to shorter-run manufacturing. An ethernet communications system enabled machine CNCs to communicate with bar feeders to automatically switch part programs without operator intervention.
Magazine Bar Feeder Eases Unattended, Lights Out Production
IMTS 2018: LNS America’s GT 112-E automatic magazine bar feeder has been designed for applications like sliding headstock machines running unattended.
Using Data to Do Better in Manufacturing
Although the Smart Manufacturing Experience 2018 event in Boston may not have provided a simple, clear definition of “smart manufacturing,” it did provide a broad experience of what smart manufacturing can be like.
Coolant Filtration Kit Applicable to Chip Conveyors
LNS America’s cyclonic coolant filtration kit is designed to extend coolant life and reduce disposal costs by removing fine chips from the fluid before returning it to the machine tool tank.
New to Swiss-Type Turning
What are some nuances to training a person to effectively operate a Swiss-type lathe? This shop offers some suggestions.
Machine Tool Peripherals Optimize CNC Performance & Productivity
The company will display its “One-Stop-Shop” approach to peripherals that enable machine tools to operate at peak performance by integrating a Quick Load Servo 80 S2 all-electric, short magazine bar feeder, a Turbo MH Series filtering chip conveyor, an oil mist collector, a steady rest work support system, and a Phasep waste oil removal system with a replica turning center.
Oil Mist Collection Improves Employee Health, Safety
Using Fox oil mist collectors from LNS America, Staub Machine was able to improve air quality and reduce downtime needed to complete maintenance tasks.
PowerStream VP High-Pressure Coolant System
PowerStream VP from LNS America is a high-pressure coolant system that enables users to program variable pressure outlets to deliver up to 2,000 psi of filtered coolant.
Moving in with a Customer
Shop owner Chris Nachtmann has established a close relationship with one of his biggest customers. In fact, he moved his operation inside that customer’s facility a couple years ago. Now, he’s making greater strides to invest in and grow his business.
Making the Move to Multitasking
Implementing a done-in-one approach to production has to be managed carefully. This shop seems to have made all the right moves in what has turned out to be a truly transformative experience.
An Unexpected Payoff
An Ethernet communications system purchased to improve productivity on one part family ended up having a broader impact on this printing press manufacturer’s business.
Making Lean Connections
When Nilpeter embarked on a lean initiative 14 months ago, no one at the printing press manufacturer had any inkling that they had already taken an important first step.
Automatic Magazine Bar Feeder Loads Short Bars
The Quick Load Servo 80 S2 automatic magazine loader accommodates bar lengths ranging from 14" to 63" (not to exceed the spindle length) and diameters ranging from 1/4" to 3 1/8" (6 to 80 mm).
Versatile Chip Conveyor
LNS Group offers the chip conveyor Turbo MH500 as well as a high-pressure coolant system, the PowerStream SA.
Chasco Turns On Success By Turning Out The Lights
Jeff Roth, president of Chasco Machine, knew he needed reliable equipment to successfully implement unattended operation. Bar feeders and a chip conveyor from LNS helped the shop make the most of its move to lights-out manufacturing.
Lathe and Feeder Talk Via Ethernet Interface
Research into the connectivity and communication between machine tools and equipment like bar feeders, part unloaders, pallet systems and even high-pressure coolant systems is yielding useful ability on the shop floor. In this case, LNS uses Internet technology in its S65 bar feeder to communicate with a PC-based Fanuc CNC running a Mori-Seiki NZ2000 lathe.
It Begins With Belief
This shop’s approach to unattended machining focuses on the big picture.
