Manual Measuring System Decreases Complex Tool Production Cycles up To 30%

"UNITED GRINDING offers the HELISET PLUS, a manual measuring system from WALTER that contributes to the reduction of complex tool machining time by as much as 30%," said a company spokesperson. Once integrated into tool production processes, the HELISET PLUS concurrently performs measurement operations previously done in separate tool preparation areas or within the machine that actually produces the tool. The HELISET PLUS works with WALTER machines, such as the HELITRONIC DIAMOND EVOLUTION, that process complex cutting tools using...

Easy On-the-Fly Laser Drilling of Patterns in 2-D and 3-D Parts

SmartPerf, from Prima Power Laserdyne, is a tool for programming and laser drilling of simple to complex patterns of holes in linear and cylindrical paths in 2-D and 3-D parts. "SmartPerf offers higher quality holes, both in terms of metallurgy and geometry, with the benefit of reduced cycle time for on-the-fly laser drilling. Higher productivity is accomplished by eliminating the need for acceleration and deceleration at each hole location when comparing on-the-fly laser drilling to standard percussion laser drilling," said a comp...
