ROLL FORMING PARTS: A BETTER SURFACE = TOP QUALITY TOOLS = OPTIMISED TOOL SERVICE LIFE!
Forming rollers are used in applications like the manufacture of reinforcement mesh. The typical structure required is formed using appropriate machinery and dies. Our Italian customer also sup-plies its customers with the associated forming dies for notching, chamfering and marking, made from either reinforced steel or hard metals. ... Go to press info

2019-08-30 DENTAL DRILLS: OTEC PRODUCES OUTSTANDING RESULTS IN 60 SECONDS

DENTAL DRILLS: OTEC PRODUCES OUTSTANDING RESULTS IN 60 SECONDS
YOU STATE THE REQUIREMENT. WE MAKE IT HAPPEN: The manufacturing process for stainless steel surgical drills used in minor or major procedures pro-duces burrs. Manual deburring is not just time-consuming but also produces a lot of rejects, not to mention the fact that every drill ends up slightly different. It’s an unreliable process. OTEC SF Series machines are designed for reliable, ... Go to press info

2019-08-30 Perfect Surface for Threading Tools

Perfect Surface for Threading Tools
During the manufacturing of metal workpieces very often it is necessary to machine threads. Mainly when the workpieces have to be mounted or assembled to other parts screw connections are unavoidable. Generally, there are two different ways to create threads: cutting (‘taps’) which is the most popular one and forming (‘forming tools’). ... Go to press info

2019-08-30 Inner FormingDies for non-cutting production

Inner FormingDies for non-cutting production
Cold forming is characterised by the high degree of deformation on the workpiece and the associated extreme demands on the tool. Depending on the process, very high pressures combined with high sliding speeds can arise. There is also a risk of the tool fusing to the workpiece. It is therefore essential for the friction coefficient of the forming tool surface to be as low as possible. ... Go to press info

Prosthetic hips
The artificial or prosthetic hip joint is one of the best known such implants. With the OTEC method, a flawless, highly polished surface is achieved for both the stems and balls of hip prostheses. Go to press info

2019-02-22 CAN SEAMERS - COST-EFFECTIVE FINISHING WITH PERFECT RESULTS

CAN SEAMERS - COST-EFFECTIVE FINISHING WITH PERFECT RESULTS
Can seamers are used to seal cans. The key functional surface of the tool is the forming surface or groove which joins together the edges of the can and the lid by forming a seam. Can seamers are used in large quantities all over the world.In order to ensure that the tools always maintain a consistent quality, the forming surfaces must be regularly repolished.

2019-02-22 THREADING TOOLS - CUSTOMIZED PROCESS FOR DIFFERENT REQUIREMENTS

THREADING TOOLS - CUSTOMIZED PROCESS FOR DIFFERENT REQUIREMENTS
The requirements to the surface finishing of threading tools could be very different depending on the type of tool. Therefore a very flexible process that adapts to every dimension and shape of tools is necessary. In OTEC-stream finishing machines with pulse drive (Pulsfinish) the tools can be deburred, smoothed and rounded reliably, quickly and economically according to the requirements. Go to press info

2019-02-22 CUTTER BODIES - PERFECTLY DEBURRED AND POLISHED

CUTTER BODIES - PERFECTLY DEBURRED AND POLISHED
For surface processing, two main tasks are involved in the production of cutter bodies: Deburring after milling and polishing after hardening and grinding. The reliable removal of burrs is important for optimum fit of the inserts on the cutter body. A burr-free and flat support surface is important for stability during the cutting process and prevents chipping of the insert. Go to press info

2019-02-21 POLISHING CARBIDE TOOLS

POLISHING CARBIDE TOOLS
OTEC machines allow the quality of carbide tools to be improved considerably. The special procedure enables the chip grooves of carbide cutters and drill bits, for example, to be polished to a high gloss. The polish enables higher cutting values and feed rates to be achieved. The OTEC process not only ensures a smooth, polished flute, but also improves the adhesion of coatings. Go to press info

2019-02-21 INNER FORMING DIES FOR NON-CUTTING PRODUCTION

INNER FORMING DIES FOR NON-CUTTING PRODUCTION
Depending on the process, inner forming dies are exposed to very high pressures combined with high sliding speeds. This means that very strenuous demands are placed on the tools and especially on the surfaces! With OTEC stream finishing machines tools can be processed economically and in consistent quality.

2019-02-21 SHOCK ABSORBER DISCS

SHOCK ABSORBER DISCS
Stamped parts are used in a wide variety of applications in the automotive industry and are used, for example, in shock absorbers. The main processing task is deburring and rounding of the edges. The OTEC disc finishing machines of the series CF allow that sensitive stamped parts will be deburred and rounded quickly, absolutely reliably and process capable. Go to press info

2019-02-21 IN POLE-POSITION BY MINIMIZING FRICITON

IN POLE-POSITION BY MINIMIZING FRICITON
While engineers in the automotive industry are always looking for ways to optimise efficiency, smooth running and emission management, the focus in motorsport is on pushing performance to its limits. As an international technology leader in mass finishing, OTEC designs and builds systems that reduce friction between components, benefiting both the premium car segment and motorsport.

2019-02-21 VALVE SPOOLS - SMOOTHING FOR HIGH CONTACT RATIO

VALVE SPOOLS - SMOOTHING FOR HIGH CONTACT RATIO
For the surface quality of the valve spool it is not only important to deburr and smooth, but also perform defined rounding of the edges. By smoothing the roughness peaks high contact ratios are achieved, leading to less friction and less wear. The result is a more reliable sealing surface at the edges which control the volume flows in the valve. Go to press info

2019-02-21 OTEC finish for LAMY fountain pen nibs

OTEC finish for LAMY fountain pen nibs
OTEC was able to develop an individual process to grind and polish the surface areas of Lamy's nibs to achieve a perfect finish. The nibs are processed in OTEC CF disc finishing machines in a multi-stage procedure. It is only through this that they meet the high quality requirements of the Lamy brand.
