If you’re experiencing cutter vibrations when entering into cut in general face milling applications, you’re not alone. This can be resolved with a simple programming solution called the ‘roll-in’ technique.
With the introduction of a new generation of indexable insert tools for gear milling, the cost per machined gear wheel can be reduced considerably. Such was the case with an external planetary gear, module 7. By switching from an HSS solid to an indexable insert hob, the cutting time was reduced by 50 percent and the tool life was more than doubled. The company in question was able to release more than 7,000 hours of machine time.
Efficient machining of jet engine components from HRSA requires a well-balanced overall solution, taking into account factors such as workpiece condition, tool material and the related cutting data recommendations, use of coolant and optimized machining strategies.
Machining the central hole in the main shaft of a wind mill is usually a bottle neck operation. The main challenge is acquiring high machine utilization; learn key tool and application considerations to increase productivity.
Learn how entry angle and feed rate must be considered to achieve top productivity.
SwePart Verktyg, automotive stamping die producer, partnered with Sandvik Coromant to tighten their production. Improvements included cutting machining time from 211 to 120 hours per part, cutting suppliers from 19 to 3, and implementing better-quality inserts for more cost-efficient production.
Independent test data verify that Coromant Capto has extreme resistance to both bending and torsion – much better than competing tool-holding systems.
The traditional way of machining hub blade bores is circular interpolation, but we see here why helical interpolation is a more productive solution.
German manufacturer Mayer Feintechnik invests big in turn-mill Mori Seiki machine with Coromant Capto system, pays off with doubled productivity.
Coromant Capto is a modular, universal tooling system that delivers flexibility and a substantial reduction of tool inventory for all metalcutting operations. The quick change system is much faster than traditional systems, which can result in a 25 percent increase in productivity.
