Additive manufacturing is touted as the next paradigm shift in manufacturing. The concept of building up material to make parts, versus thousands of years of subtracting or forming metal to manufacture these parts is, indeed, an event of seismic proportions.

Just like a car or truck, CNC machines require routine maintenance to keep them in top form. A well maintained machine tool will perform at peak efficiency and reduce costly breakdowns that interrupt production. Performing routine maintenance, as required, will also prolong the life of the

Undetected broken drills or taps are notorious time and materials wasters. Almost as bad is a detection system that interrupts the machining process to check the tools. In this video Gosiger engineers demonstrate how a BK Mikro checking device can be used in-magazine to check for tool breakage

Many CNC applications require a steady stream of coolant to optimize cutting speeds and throughput. This is especially true when machining parts from hard-to-machine steel alloys, titanium, and other metals that often require precisely applied high-pressure coolant to maintain cutting efficiency
