New PrimeTurning™ Concept Boosts Productivity

December 15, 2017

Sandvik PrimeTurning - 1200x628.jpg

The traditional approach to a turning process involves cutting from the end of a workpiece toward the chuck. As a result, the entering angle of the cutting tool must be around 90º to enable the tool to reach the shoulder. Although using less of an entering angle would increase the feed rate, such an approach typically produces undesirably long, curved chips.

How To Detect Tool Breakage Without Interrupting The Machining Cycle

July 29, 2016

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 outside of the cutting area.

Tooling & Aerospace Materials: Learn From Experts

September 22, 2015

Machining aerospace materials can be challenging in a number of ways, especially when dealing with high temperature alloys. This is especially true for CNC shops that traditionally work with more common materials such as carbon steels and non-ferrous alloys. For example, heat-resistant alloys may require both significantly lower cutting speeds and greater tool pressures.

7 Ways to Reduce Tool Wear

September 5, 2013

WornToolsCNC machine cutting tools are perishable by nature, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take steps to prolong the life of your cutting tools. Not only are the tools, themselves, an expense but replacing worn tools can interrupt production and add labor costs. Not replacing worn tools in a timely manner can also impact the quality of a workpiece.
