126 MMS December 2016 TOOLING AND WORKHOLDING clamping force per chuck face, with an accuracy of 5 microns. It is available in pneumatic and hydraulic operating systems for a variety of machine tools to enable the machining of various sizes of workpieces and for easy automation adaptation. GF Machining Solutions, call 800-282-1336 or visit GROOVING TOOLS COME IN THREE STYLES FOR DIFFERENT INDUSTRIES Arno Werkzeuge USA introduces its SA series of cutting tools and inserts for grooving and parting- off or cutoff operations. The modular grooving system, using a single toolholder, can be trans- formed into different tool variants by changing the support blade and clamp. Enabling different operations with one tool, this grooving system provides chip removal in all three main cutting directions. The SA range also features precision- ground two- or three-edged cutting inser ts in various designs, shapes and types to maximize cutting performance, speed and efficiency. The series comes in three unique systems— monoblock, modular and blade-style—to accom- modate the requirements of machining operations in aerospace, plastics and medical industries. The company says the SA series provides a cost- effective solution for radial grooving as well as parting off of diameters ranging to 5.512" (140 mm). The SA monoblock holder is used with a range of double-sided inserts including the Arno SA16, SA17, SA24, SA35 und SA40 in widths of 0.059", 0.079", 0.118", 0.157", 0.197", 0.236", 0.315" and 0.394" (1.5, 2, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 mm). Arno Werkzeuge USA, call 800-943-4426 or visit "We love this new center." "We use a CNC lathe to machine high-precision compressor shafts to very tight tolerances. But the bearings on our live centers were failing prematurely under the high-pressure coolant. A lot of chatter, vibration and out-of-spec parts. Then we tried Riten's new C4T center with a labyrinth bearing seal. What a difference! No vibration. Consistent runouts to less than 50 millionths. Surfaces down to a 7 finish. The C4T has been running for well over a year, and we're still getting great parts." Dan Harcz Integra-Tech Machining You, too, will love the C4T with its unique labyrinth seal for permanent bearing protection. Call 800-338-0027 for complete information. Solutions, not excuses Unique labyrinth seal for permanent bearing protection
