TOOLING AND WORKHOLDING Modern Machine Shop 117 World Class Manufacturer of Rotary Cutting Tools 965 Harbor Lake Dr. • Safety Harbor, FL 34695 727.726.5336 • Email: Made in U.S.A. ISO 9001:2008 CERTIFIED Vacuum Slot Chuck Configurable in Two Directions Ibag North America offers the Witte modular vacuum slot chucks designed to provide expanded clamping surfaces to meet a wide range of application requirements. These modular slot chucks are available in sizes of 200 × 300, 300 × 400 and 400 × 600 mm. Connection elements that function as quick couplings simplify and speed up expansion, allowing users to configure the clamping surface or work area in two directions as needed. For example, one 200 × 300-mm chuck may be extended to 200 × 600 or 300 × 400 mm to suit more efficient surface usage for higher production capability. Designed for small parts, these slot chucks are ideal for light milling and drilling applications, including engraving for parts larger than 25 × 25 mm. | Ibag North America 203-407-0397 Tungaloy is expanding its insert line for TungSix-Drill, the change- able-head drill, to include grade AH3135. The grade is highly frac- ture-resistant, consisting of a tough carbide substrate and multiple layers of coatings designed to withstand high vibrations due to unfavorable cutting conditions. These features combine to enable longer tool life. The tool is said to be the world's first indexable insert drill that incor- porates double-sided, triangular inserts with six effective cutting edges. Rather than generating unwanted, heavy cutting load during drilling, this insert is designed with an optimized rake angle and chipbreak- ers on both sides of the insert, pro- viding the same light cutting action as a single-sided, positive insert. | Tungaloy America 630-227-3700 Changeable-Head Drill Available in Fracture-Resistant Grade
