CrazyTools on the Mikron Tool booth at AMB

18 09 2014

The Swiss tooling manufacturer presents its new cooling concept on drills and mills. The coolant through the shank provides an efficient cooling to the point of the tool. The result is a reliable process and an increceased productivity.

Mikron Tool develops and produces precision and high-performance small to medium-sized cutting tools for the high-end market and always proposes innovative and "Crazy" tools.

Mikron Tool develops and produces precision and high-performance small to medium-sized cutting tools for the high-end market and always proposes innovative and “Crazy” tools (like the CrazyMill).

Cooling channels are integrated into the carbide shaft. Coolant ports are at the end of the shaft taper where they produce a steady and massive cooling effect of the cutting edges which facilitates in turn high cutting speeds. A targeted flushing of the chips is thus also assured and gives best surface quality.

CrazyDrill™ SST-Inox
Mikron Tool offers 2 exclusive solutions for drilling up to 8 x d: a) CrazyDrill Inox Type IN for drilling with external cooling. b) CrazyDrill Inox Type IK for drilling with internal cooling.

CrazyMill Cool Revolutionary in the minute detail
With difficult materials such as stainless and acid resistant steels, titanium chrome-cobalt alloys as well as superalloys, milling tools are exposed to considerable wear. With high temperatures and reduced heat conductivity of the material, the heat transfers usually to the cutting edges, which subsequently reduces much of the tool life expectancy. External cooling is often not enough to control sufficiently the temperature of the tool. The integrated through coolant of the CrazyMill Cool solves this problem with class.

You can discover these crazy tools till the end of the week in Stuttgart on the gallery Hall 1-1 Z 330.

Laser deposition welding & milling in a single solution

17 09 2014

The AMB Stuttgart started yesterday with the halls full of visitors. At the DMG MORI booth (quite crowded too), many novelties. Among them, the new Lasertec 65D hybrid machine. Let’s have a look at it.

The new Lasertec 65 3D - ALL IN 1: Laser Deposition Welding & Milling -additive Manufacturing in Milling quality.

The new Lasertec 65 3D – All in 1: laser deposition welding & milling -additive manufacturing in milling quality.

For the first time additive manufacturing is integrated into a high-tech 5-axis milling machine. This innovative hybrid-solution combines the flexibility of the laser metal deposition process with the precision of the cutting process and therewith allows additive manufacturing in milling quality.

10 times faster
The process uses the metal deposition by powder nozzle, which is up to 10-times faster than the generation in the powder bed. Up to now additive technologies have been used to generate prototypes and small parts. By combining both, additive manufacturing via powder nozzle and the traditional cutting method in one machine, totally new applications and geometries are possible. Especially large workpieces with high stock removal volumes are now possible to be machined in an economical way.

Opening new possibilities to designers
The flexible change between laser and milling operation allows the direct milling machining of sections which are not reachable anymore once the part finished.

Highlights Lasertec 65 3D

  • Complete machining in milling quality with fully automated change between milling and laser operation
  • Laser deposition welding with powder nozzle: 10-times faster vs. powder-bed-process
  • Wall thickness from 0,1 mm to 5 mm possible (depending on laser and nozzle geometry)
  • Feasibility of 3D-contours without backing geometry: e.g. machining of a flange, machining of a cone

 

To be seen in Stuttgart on the Entrance West, Hall 7, Booth A01

Medical manufacturing: the new Eldorado

16 09 2014

Medical applications will be one of the highlights of the next Micronora 2014 trade show. Products with high added value and complex to manufacture, implants and other prosthesis, all require dedicated solutions that many exhibitors will offer. (Vous pouvez télécharger cet article en français ici).

eldorado
Attracted by a burgeoning market, manufacturers of equipment for the manufacture of implants, prostheses and other medical products offer solutions to an industry that leaves no room for improvisation. The global medical devices market, whose annual turnover exceeds EUR 200 billion, records a growth of more than 6% per year.

The complementarity of skills is to be seen at Micronora
The machining of implants and prostheses, both for dental and orthopedics applications requires machines and programming softwares adapted to the specific requirements of the medical industry. A near-perfect surface quality is essential for implants, condition to be tolerated by the human body. In addition, workshops that work for this area are facing machining of very hard and difficult materials as cobalt-chrome alloys, titanium, stainless steels, ceramics. Those require extremely rigid machine tools and resistant cutting tools. High speed machining centers or automatic lathes have automated means of loading and unloading of parts. Those production means are therefore able to work 24 hours a day and can be controlled by operators without specialist knowledge in medical manufacturing.

Custom solutions
Users can use intelligent solutions, such as roughing and finishing by shift of forms, end machining or machining on 5 axes. These approaches simplify the programming of complex geometries, ensure a high quality of surfaces and reduce machining time. Painful, long and costly finishing operations are reduced to the bare. The use of shorter tools and therefore more stable, allows machining high walls and steep parts. Other manufacturers offer original solutions, such as machining by laser or ultrasonic. The arrival of sources with short pulses opens new avenues in the field of machining. And indeed the well-known machining by removal of material like high precision turning has not yet said its last word.

Complete turning range

15 09 2014

The SSXA and SSXC tool systems from the Dieterle tool manufacturer’s range are technically perfected and tested. They are designed for use on automatic turning machines, in particular sliding headstock versions, and offer excellent day-to-day performance thanks to their wide range of applications and practicality.

 The SSXA and SSXC tool systems share the same applications; their difference lies in their design and their systems for mounting turning inserts on the tool holder.

The SSXA and SSXC tool systems share the same applications; their difference lies in their design and their systems for mounting turning inserts on the tool holder.

Two complementary systems
The dual cutting edge inserts used on the SSXA system are fixed laterally in the perfectly-formed housing in the tool holder. The dual cutting edge insert on the SSXC system is fixed from the top in the tool holder. The two tool systems can always be used “in reverse” and are, if necessary, also available with internal coolant supply.

Guaranteeing efficiency
The coolant jet can be precisely directed and fixed on heavily used points. This has a particularly beneficial effect on the service life of turning inserts. The various turning inserts, which are classified in the catalogue according to the type of application, are available in stock for all machining operations. The formation of edges, which very often determine the dimensional accuracy of the machined workpiece, is avoided thanks to corresponding relief and cutting angles. The carbide grades and specially tested coatings bring an added guarantee of continuous smooth production.

Innovative two-channel NC system for machine tools with up to five axes

11 09 2014

NUM is showing its new two-channel CNC kernel for the first time in the US at IMTS.  There are still two days available to discover it there!

NUM’s latest Flexium+ 8 CNC kernel offers two CNC channels and accommodates up to five axes, four of which can be interpolated.

NUM’s latest Flexium+ 8 CNC kernel offers two CNC channels and accommodates up to five axes, four of which can be interpolated.

Designed specifically for developers of small to medium sized machine tools with four or five axes, the Flexium+ 8 CNC provides an exceptionally cost-effective control solution that in many cases eliminates the need for a second CNC kernel. NUM is also launching a new version of its 3D simulation software which now includes kinematic equations to support advanced 5-axis machining applications.

As if many kernels
The Flexium+ 8 CNC kernel offers two CNC channels and accommodates up to five axes, four of which can be interpolated. At any one time, either CNC channel can be used to control a spindle motor and four axes, instead of the full complement of five axes. This control flexibility helps designers to lower the cost of machines with complex synchronisation requirements. For example, on a grinding machine, one channel could control two X/Z axes and a spindle to perform the grinding functions while the other channel controls two rear mounted U/W dressing axes. Each channel can either run its own part program asynchronously and operate autonomously – much as if it had a dedicated CNC kernel – or the two channels can be synchronised. Control of one to five axes, or a spindle, can be passed on-the-fly from one channel to the other, to maximise use of available hardware resources.

Dedicated simulation software
For maximum flexibility, NUM offers two versions of Flexium+ 3D simulation software. One is designed for standalone use without a CNC system, as a production planning tool for verifying part programs. The other is fully integrated with the Flexium+ HMI (human machine interface) and is connected to the machine’s CNC system. Unlike many competitive CAD/CAM visualisation systems, this uses the NC code that is being processed by the CNC interpolator to create a true real-time representation of machine operation. Part programs can be simulated at the same time that other programs are being executed on the machine, and the same part program can be executed and simulated simultaneously. The simulator visualises the tools, the machine’s kinematic properties and the work piece blank as 3D volumes, and shows the TCP (tool centre point) and material removal as the tool moves along the machining path defined by the part program.

The latest release of NUM’s Flexium+ 3D simulation software includes algorithms for the RTCP function to support advanced 5-axis machining applications.
