Powerful TNC functions for perfect molds


Dimensional precision, contour accuracy, and perfect surface quality are the machining challenges faced by tool and mold manufacturers. Economic demands, such as the need for higher productivity and lower costs, add to the pressure. The powerful TNC functions of the HEIDENHAIN controls offer you solutions for both highly accurate and efficient machining.

With live demonstrations and four topic islands at the MEX2019 trade show, HEIDENHAIN will be showing you how you can get the most out of your machine and meet workpiece accuracy requirements with efficiency.

Shorter cycle times as a central objective

Shorter cycle times

For the high requirements in the automotive sector in particular, Walter AG is introducing new boring tools with tangentially arranged indexable inserts. The usually high feeds for tangential systems are therefore transferred from the milling to the holemaking. In contrast to radial tools, tangential tools can work without good chip clearance.

Walter combines the extremely stable tool core that results from this with a separate indexable-insert geometry – and therefore not only improves the surface quality: A second clearance angle reduces the effective clearance angle, which is otherwise high for tangential tools, and reduces "chattering". The square-shaped indexable insert can be ...
