Back-to-back events drew hundreds to Makino’s Auburn Hills, Michigan tech center last week for technical presentations, machine demos, networking and more.
Here’s a different approach to a micromachining center--a machining strategy developed around interpolation, allowing machining operations to benefit from the dynamic control of the worktable while reducing the number of tools needed.
In metalworking, it is rare to find new approaches to well-established technologies; usually new developments are major or minor upgrades to known elements. This micromachining center is rewriting the rulebook.
Proper tooling and machining options are critical in developing an optimized plan for micromachining.
Production engineering solutions required by many Swiss watchmakers are already installed in their CNC machines when they buy them.
The Makino Micromachining Conference, scheduled for Tuesday, September 10, in Auburn Hills, Mich., will include demonstrations of Makino’s latest micromachining technologies and guest presentations addressing manufacturing at the micro scale.
The Kern ultra-precision Evo CNC machining center is equipped for three- to five-axis machining.
Production of micro threads can be challenging, but using the most suitable tools for a given application can simplify the task.
