MMS AUGUST 2018 142 IMTS 2018 Milling Machines Space-Saving Five-Axis Machine Cuts Large Parts DMG MORI's two XXL machines, the DMU 200 gantry and DMU 340 gantry, are designed for large-part applications. Both models offer five-axis simultaneous machining and combine a large work area with a small footprint, according to the company. The DMU 200 is suitable for the aerospace, auto- motive, moldmaking and energy industries. Its spindle rotates as fast as 30,000 rpm. With optional Ultrasonic or Lasertec technology, the gantry machine can pro- cess aluminum, composite or welded components as heavy as 22,046 lbs. Featuring a top gantry design, the DMU 340 pro- duces parts for the aero- space, mechanical engi- neering, and tool and mold manufacturing industries. Its XYZ work area measures 134" × 110" × 49". Expan- sion options ranging to 236" in the X axis and 59" in the Z axis are available. | DMG MORI | South, Level 3, Booth 338900 Five-Axis Machine Provides Large Work Envelope C.R. Onsrud's Qube series of CNC machines offers a large, fully enclosed work envelope along with chip collection and five-axis machining capabilities. The series is suitable for non- ferrous metal, composites, plastic and wood applica- tions. It offers accurate and fast machining of compo- nents for the aerospace, automotive, and tool and die industries. The work enve- lope measures 5 × 12 ft. with a 41" Z-axis clearance. | C.R.

When is Tungsten Carbide Preferable to Specialty/CPM Steel? As a production engineer, you're always trying to achieve optimum efficiency in your production runs. By trading upfront savings for extended wear life, you're actually reducing your tooling costs over the long term. Applications Engineering At General Carbide, our applications engineers can help you find the ideal solution, and determine how it will perform based on your specifications, including: • Production Volume • Operation (Stamping, Forming, Blanking) • Material Thickness • Temperature • Press Type (Pressure, Tonnage, Impact) • Production Run Duration Advanced Metallurgy for Exceptional Grades Through extensive R&D, General Carbide can adjust hardness, toughness, corrosion resistance, wear and galling properties, high temperature performance and other characteristics to meet the most stringent requirements. Ideal Applications for Tungsten Carbide Tungsten Carbide tooling out- performs tool steels in manufacturing: • Brake Pads & Components • Catalytic Converters • Clutch Liner Materials • Deep Draw Products (Oil Filters, Pans) • Electronic Connectors • Electronic Motor Components • Forming & Swaging Dies • Hardened Spark Plugs • Non-Ferrous Components • Transmission Components Justifying the Cost of Tungsten Carbide Tooling Although Tungsten Carbide tooling costs more than tool steels, it has 10x-100x more tool life than steel. In fact, Tungsten Carbide's higher upfront costs are more than offset by extended production runs and reduced downtime. ADVERTISEMENT FEATURE ISO 9001:2008 C E R T I F I E D
