May 20, 2014 - EPPINGER Shaping Attachment enables single-step machining of difficult-to-cut features, including grooves, Torx screw heads, splines, and gear teeth. Attachment drives cutter into workpiece in Z-axis at cutting speeds up to 1,000 strokes/min. At end of each stroke, integrated lift-off mechanism returns cutter to starting position without drag. With working stroke of 1.3 in. and max feed of 0.006 in. per stroke, attachment can produce max groove widths of 0.31–0.34 in.

Shaping Attachment from EXSYS Enables Single-Step Machining of Complex Features

EXSYS Tool, Inc.

San Antonio, FL, 33576

Press release date: May 12, 2014

SAN ANTONIO, Fla., – The EPPINGER Shaping Attachment, recently introduced by EXSYS Tool, Inc., enables single-step machining of a wide variety of difficult-to-cut features including grooves, chamfers, Torx screw heads, splines and gear teeth. In addition, permanent grease lubrication of the attachment’s bearing surfaces helps reduce wear and tear on the machine tools that employ the device.

The Shaping Attachment is engineered for productive and efficient operation. In use, it drives the cutter into the workpiece in the Z-axis at cutting speeds up to 1,000 strokes per minute. At the end of each stroke an integrated lift-off mechanism returns the cutter to the starting position without drag, protecting the surface finish of the component and the cutting edge of the tool. With a working stroke of 1.3" (32 mm) and maximum feed of 0.006" (0.15 mm) per stroke, the attachment can produce maximum groove widths of 0.31" – 0.34" (8-10 mm).

The Shaping Attachment’s capability to machine difficult features in a single setup increases production throughput, while its permanent lubrication, lift-off mechanism, and rigidity minimize machine tool wear and downtime that can result from performing tough gearmaking-type operations.
