Machine Tool Runoff Cutting Titanium Confirms Advantages of 'Ultimate Tuned System'

When it comes to sourcing capital equipment for machining specialty materials, many organizations would do well to remember the 10-speed bicycle analogy. People shop and buy a 10-speed bike for recreational or workout goals, but when riding rarely go beyond two or three of the most comfortable gears. Tour de France riders and other finely tuned athletes both size and operate all their components...

New KM4X(TM) Spindle Connection from Kennametal Delivers Maximum Spindle Power

(LATROBE, PA) - When machining tough materials like titanium, there is a need for a spindle connection that makes the best use of available power. Machinists are challenged to maximize metal-removal rates to achieve production efficiencies, yet face low cutting speeds and considerably higher cutting forces. In response, machine tool builders have improved stiffness and damping on spindles and...
