130 MMS April 2017 PMTS 2017 April 25 - 27 PMTS 2017 The 2017 edition of the Precision Machining Technology Show (PMTS) is scheduled to take place April 25-27 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio. PMTS is the only show in North America dedicated to the precision machining industry, drawing hundreds of exhibitors displaying machining and turning centers, Swiss-type lathes, rotary transfer machines, grind- ers, EDMs and related tooling, workholding, software, and more. This section presents just a sampling of the variety of products to be displayed at the show. NEW SUBSTRATE INCREASES TOOL LIFE TURNING TOUGH MATERIALS OF SMALL DIAMETERS HORN USA INC., BOOTH 331 Horn USA's Supermini cutting tool's new substrate, coating and edge preparation are said to provide high-performance results in small diameters. The development is in response to demands from customers who work with materials that are dif- ficult to machine and require greater throughput, the company says. In trials, the new substrates and coatings resulted in longer tool life. The EG35 grade has demonstrated as much as 60 percent longer tool life when turning cobalt chrome at 1,0 0 0 N/mm 2 . This grade enables the tool to machine diameters ranging from 0.2 to 6.8 mm (0.008" to 0.268") in tough materials while increas- ing return on investment, the company says.

The configuration of the tool line ensures that cool- ant is delivered precisely and with enough force to reach the cutting zone as a liquid, unlike other systems that often result in a delivery of a less effective coolant vapor to a critical zone. These tools can handle pressure ranging to 4,900 psi (340 bar) and are available in both inch and metric s h a n k s i z e s . A s m a n y m o d e r n S w i s s -t y p e
