The usefulness of hexapods, or Stewart Platforms, is expanding as research and industry increase the scope of application to include motion simulation, industrial production, precision machining, automotive assembly, image stabilization, and alignment of opto-mechanical components
The SCHUNK TANDEM TBA-D supporting jaw system transforms the SCHUNK TANDEM plus clamping force blocks into multi-purpose powerhouses.
A factor of Sumitomo Electric Hardmetal’s continuous development programme is the ability to enable deep holes to be drilled between 12 mm and 42.5 mm diameter with up to 12:1 depth-to-diameter ratio
Esco Tool has introduced a new pipe milling end prep tool for beveling water wall boiler tubes at biomass processing facilities in preparation for precision welding repairs
Emuge Corp. has introduced “circle-segment” cutters, an innovative class of end mills designed to enable substantially more material removal with fewer passes in 5-Axis machining, over 80% cycle time reductions and up to 50% smoother surface finishes
Nitride hard coatings made from titanium aluminum nitride (TiAlN) protect drill bits, milling cutters and indexable cutting inserts against premature failure due to wear. Now, small quantities of tantalum improve the thermal stability of these adherent layers still further
