TURNING TOOLS

Burr-Free Micro Thread Whirling

Threading is usually the last operation when machining components, which is why the process needs to be reliable and highly precise. DC Swiss has developed an internal thread whirler, which leaves micro threads burr-free, even in demanding, hard-to-machine materials.

A Rolling Cutting Tool Boosts Turning Efficiency

Rollfeed turning adds a third axis to turning operations that moves simultaneously with the X and Z axes to “roll” the cutting tool with a special insert geometry across the surface of the part. The result is reduced machining times, minimized tooling costs and high surface qualities.
