Hi-Torque Angle Head 5-to-l Gear Ratio

Coolant Driven Angle Heads develop up to l00 inch pounds of torque. The heads incorporate a planetary gear with a five-to-one ratio, ideal for applications where high torque at lower speeds is required. The angle heads are powered by an integral positive displacement ball piston motor driven by the machining centers higp pressure coolant system. Because spindle rotation is not required for power,...

Faster Production and Lower Costs with Tube Sheet Pro® Grooving Tool

Time-consuming fixturing and secondary operations are eliminated as groove quality is improved A manufacturer of heat exchangers was drilling, reaming, and grooving holes in tube sheets on a vertical CNC mill. The grooving tool in use wouldn't work properly on the CNC machine, due to slight variations in the surface height of the tube sheets. The tube sheets had to be taken to a radial arm drill...

Special Twin Coin Punch Tool Achieves Chamfer Diameter and Location Specs, Greatly Reduces Costs

Special tool based on Cogsdill recessing head design used a coining arbor to punch the hole and chamfer in the bottom of the reservoir in their master cylinders. The tool fed into the bore and then was offset, which caused the punch to make contact with the surface. They could only manufacture one punched hole at a time. The method by which the tool was offset caused deflection problems,...

Boring and Contouring Heads

Dramatic Improvements in Quality and Productivity Subcontract machine shop had to obtain high quality threads in a very deep bore, with a smooth transition to a 30° angle. The large part, made of stainless steel and Inconel, was about four and a half feet in length and could not be rotated. The part was machined on a horizontal boring mill. The bore in the end of the part closest to the...
