2019-09-11 Live at EMO 2019: VMC 450-5 MT Turning/Milling Center – Five Axes for Dramatically Shorter Machining

Live at EMO 2019: VMC 450-5 MT Turning/Milling Center – Five Axes for Dramatically Shorter Machining
Large components and complex geometries—in heavy machining, this combination is far from rare and is always synonymous with a high expenditure of time and rising costs. A primary reason for this is that the variety of machining processes required, from turning to gear cutting, are typically performed on different machines that are not completely linked with one another. Additionally, the variety o Go to press info

EMO 2019: Laser Cleaning Machine of EMAG LaserTec
EMAG LaserTec is known first and foremost for highly productive laser welding systems. The focus is indeed on the word “system”: In addition to the actual welding process, steps that occur upstream or downstream of the welding are frequently integrated as well. Proper cleaning of the workpieces prior to welding is an important process step, as this determines the resulting quality. Impurities from Go to press info

2015-04-21 Hard turning and grinding combination

Hard turning and grinding combination
When will hard turning and grinding combination machining be the norm? At the end of production, workpieces must go through a grinding process to achieve the desired surface quality: this has been the standard in manufacturing for various reasons. First, hardened workpieces could not be processed with standard turning. Second, besides grinding no other technology was capable of producing... Go to press info

2014-06-30 Induction hardening in gear manufacturing

Induction hardening in gear manufacturing
The classical hardening method is case-hardening, where the complete workpiece has to be heated for hours to reach the desired hardness. This kind of hardening has its disadvantages, especially when it comes to the mass production of gears. One of them is the enormous expenditure of time and energy and the reason behind the development, over the last few years, of induction hardening gas... Go to press info
