With the Seco Jabro®-Mini JM500 line of more than 180 micro end mill products, production facilities effectively and reliably machine small and nano-sized parts that are often too small for the machining operation to be easy to see. The end mills ensure process control along with predictable cutting-tool performance for these challenging micro applications, typically found in demanding industries such as aerospace, medical and 3C (computers, consumer electronics, communications).
Machine shops seek to produce a certain number of parts of a certain quality, in a certain amount of time, at a certain cost. Consistently achieving those goals involves controlling a myriad of factors including cutting parameters, tool cost and changeover times, machine tool utilization, workpiece handling expense and material and labor costs.
Seco's latest breakthrough in face milling cutters, the Double Quattromill® 22, significantly boosts metal removal rates and allows shops to push machine tools to their full milling potentials. The new cutter, for both roughing and semi finishing, features eight inserts with multiple cutting edges that cost-effectively increase depths-of-cut for high output.
Seco has expanded its industry-leading Jetstream Tooling® solutions with new toolholders, coolant clamps and shank adapters that together optimize turning operations. The ISO turning toolholders feature coolant clamps with Seco’s JETI (Jetstream Integrated) technology, as do the VDI machine-side shank adapters. The JETI technology keeps machines up and running while effectively controlling chips and heat generation.
Cutting tools are fundamental elements of the metalcutting process. Depending on how the tools are chosen and applied, they offer the potential to maximise machining productivity or, on the other hand, create production bottlenecks. Much depends on how tool use is managed in relation to the overall manufacturing process.
Seco Tools has introduced Jetstream Tooling® high-pressure coolant technology for threading shank holders. The new range includes square shank holders for external applications, boring bars for internal applications and GL-heads for use with Steadyline bars.
Delta, a world-class provider of industrial automation solutions, held a press conference today at SPS IPC Drives 2018 to announce its new partnership with 3S-Smart Software Solution GmbH, a member of the CODESYS Group and creator of the market-leading IEC 61131-3 industrial software CODESYS. The partnership will enable Delta to make its future motion control devices programmable with CODESYS and offer customers across EMEA (Europe, Middle East & Africa) and Asia the opportunity to simplify the implementation of Delta’s industrial automation hardware across their operations.
