BROACHING TOOLS Aluminum Drill Series Expanded Kyocera SGS Precision Tools has expanded its Hi-PerCarb 131N series of drills to include 417 new items. These new line items will be in 3×D TB coated and uncoated configurations as well as 5×D uncoated configurations. The key features designed into the drill are said to offer application benefits not only beyond that of standard carbide drills, but also other high-performance drills. The tool's features were developed specifically to address problems commonly encountered during high-production drilling, the company says. The company's in-house metallurgical lab enables it to inspect raw material, ensuring that only the best raw carbide is made into the finished product. | Kyocera SGS Precision Tools | 330-688-6667 Air Rest Buttons Detect Proper Workpiece Loading Carr Lane's air rest buttons enable the use of pneumatic position control to detect proper workpiece loading in a machining fixture. These modular units consist of a threaded body installed in a fixture, which holds a precision floating plunger. The plunger has a reamed hole available in a choice of three diameters to accept any height of Carr Lane's standard press-fit type rest buttons. Proper placement of a workpiece on the air rest button assembly causes the plunger to fully retract into the body. This seals off air flow, which increases the overall pressure of the system. This pressure value can be read using an analog or digital pressure sensor, which can then be tied into a PLC or control system. | Carr Lane Mfg. Co. | 314-647-6200 |
