Makino’s iQ300 precision micromachining center uses 0.005 micron scale feedback for increased sub-micron accuracy.
Big Kaiser’s EWN 04-7 series of precision-finish boring heads are designed for use on micro-milling machines with high-speed spindles such as HSK-E25, E32 or E40.
The potential benefits of using waterjet technology to produce parts or part features smaller than 300 microns are compelling. Developers and researchers are getting close to breaking the barriers that stand in the way of micromachining in the 150- to 200-micron range and below.
In one of its first commercial applications, an Ingersoll micro-boring tool has brought process stability to a machining application that the user describes as a “perfect storm.”
When the task is to remove very small amounts of material, this process may be the answer.
From watch parts to exotic medical applications, this shop takes on the world of micromachining.
