MODERN EQUIPMENT REVIEW Modern Machine Shop 149 Cleaner Removes Difficult Soils Kyzen's Metalnox M6324CP is a heavy-duty alkaline cleaner and inhib- itor formulated to remove paraffinic oils used in a wide range of machining, stamping and deep draw operations. It is built with effective steel corrosion inhibitors to provide long- term protection from rust. The product can remove difficult soils and provides effective steel corrosion protection for as long as 90 days. It also provides environmental advantages as a nonflam- mable, alkaline, biode- gradable aqueous solution. | Kyzen Corp. 615-831-0888 Mobile Package Performs Tapping Off-Line FlexArm's mobile tapping package enables operators to tap holes off-line while the machining center works on the next part. The package includes a GH-18-1 tapping arm with a tap capacity of #6 to 0.625", reaching from 17" to 72", offering variable speed from 100 to 420 rpm, 360- degree movement and a semi-automatic tap lubrica- tor. With a caster cart, power pack, tap stand and five tap holders, the hydraulic tool can be used wherever 110 V is available, no air needed. It can speed setup times and reduce tap breakage, according to the company. The tapping arm is designed to increase effi- ciency. It enables machining centers to do what they do best: milling, drilling and boring. When operators load a machining center and start its cycle, they can use that cycle time to tap previously machined parts. It is said to have a tap breakage rate of only 1 per 3,000 holes. | FlexArm | 800-837-2503 A VEN Let Aven's industrial grade LED Tasks Lights guide the way to superior precision work while minimizing energy costs.
