July 2019

Summer time has now reached its highest point. For sure many of our members are now taking holiday and enjoying their well deserved free days at the beach, on a mountain-trip or anywhere else at nice places. Matching to the vacation time the 'Day of the hammock' will be celebrated on 22nd of July.

But not everybody is in holiday. A few colleagues always have to hold the position during summer. IndustryArena and CNCZone as well are busy during the sunny and warm days. Amongst other things we optimized our network for suppliers and buyers 'ORDERMATCH' in the last weeks.
And we want to inform you as always about some other hot topics: For example about a planned adventure-trip through the wild of Alaska with a self-made vehicle and about our new developments in our forums.

Adventure 2019: With a Self-made Vehicle through Alaska

The german brothers and high leveled do-it-yourself-workers Paul and Hansen Hoepner are adventurers with passion. With their self-made amphibious vehicle called "Urmel", they want to cross Alaska in half a year, from the southern Aleutian Islands to Prudhoe Bay high in the north. Paul and Hansen have already completed numerous test drives with the prototype in rough terrain and will start their adventure this fall.

with self made vehicle through Alaska

The vehicle based on a tri-wheel construction is still largely made of metal, has 12 wheels, 4 axles and 4 cranks for height adjustment. In the final vehicle many heavy metal components will be replaced by carbon parts to reduce the weight, so that it can be moved more efficient with the leg strength from the twin brothers. 'Urmel' will be produced in an impressive machine-park which was increased piece by piece during the years. Of course with some help from well-experienced sponsors. Companies like CNC-Step, Igus or Siegmund provide technical fabric and advices.

Optimize surface quality and workpiece accuracy with 3D-ToolComp

Optimize surface quality and workpiece accuracy with 3D-ToolComp

The imperfect circularity of radius cutters can negatively impact machining outcomes. This is because errors in tool geometry cause a discrepancy between the actual point of tool-to-workpiece contact and the one calculated by the control.

The 3D-ToolComp option improves accuracy by employing three-dimensional tool-radius compensation to counteract deviations in tool circularity. What’s more, 3D-ToolComp enables such exact three-dimensional calibration of a touch probe that it can then measure free-form surfaces with the required level of accuracy.

Our Unanswered Forum Threads

The eager communication in our beloved forum is always very impressive.

Fair of the Month: Jinnoc Machine Tools Exhibition in Qingdao


Obviously the month July is not the most popular time to organize important trade shows and fairs in Europe and North America. So the focus is in the moment on Asia.

Visitors can explore innovative ideas and brandnew products of more than 1,200 exhibitors from all over the world. The exhibition covers an area of roundabout 100,000 square meters and more than 100,000 visitors are expected.

CNC-Cocktails for summer?

Hot and sunny days in summer are always nice if you can relax on these days. Maybe at a pool party or a nice barbecue afternoon with friends. And for hot days you need cool drinks. A nice cocktail, for example, can be great, but producing cocktails requires a lot of effort, knowledge of cocktail recipes, and of course a lot of time.

Make your own crude Cocktail Machine

Wouldn´t it be fantastic to have your own computerized bartender for these situations? So you just have to press a few buttons and automatically get the cocktail you want? This video shows you an interesting way to create your own computer-controlled cocktail maker. Certainly a good solution for every garden and pool party.
