MMS JUNE 2018 148 JEDD COLE | EDITOR | Tooling and Workholding End Mill's Six-Flute Design Provides Chip Control Kyocera SGS Precision Tools has expanded its T-Carb lineup of end mills to include 58 items with a corner radius. The line of tools features specialized engineering and designs for high-speed machining, specifically, trochoidal and peel milling. The six-flute design with eccentric relief provides strength and chip control at high speeds with good finish results, according to the company. It is recommended for materials with hardness ratings of 45 HRC (420 Bhn) or less. | Kyocera SGS Precision Tools 330-688-6667 Workholding Devices for Automotive Applications Kitagawa NorthTech has released a suite of custom-en- gineered, automotive-industry workholding solutions. The series includes chucks and fixtures that have been designed, modified and customized to solve part-spe- cific machining problems for a range of automotive-in- dustry applications. The range includes products for holding camshafts, valves, cylinder pumps and heads, differential cases, brackets, clutches, covers, holders, gears, hubs, pinions, pulleys, rotors, rollers, pistons, and chassis components. For example, the DL200 dual-locking chuck provides increased gripping options and easy jaw forming designed for high-volume automotive machining applications, the company says. The PWc and PWTc two- and three-jaw power-wing chucks have grips for irregular workpieces and tapered parts, providing secure gripping for castings and forgings. PU-type pull-lock chucks draw down for high-pre- cision processing and are available with open centers. The high radial gripping forces and strong pullback action are said to stabilize cutting under heavy load conditions. FG finger chucks enable high-speed turning of aluminum auto- motive and motorcycle wheels. Short-series, long-series, quick-change and pull-back collet chucks are customizable with a weldment- or cast-base fixture for a variety of hori- zontal and vertical machining operations. For situations in which a standard or advanced work- holding solution does not meet the rigid process require- ments of a unique, part-specific automotive application, a fully customized and engineered workholding system may be required. For these applications, the company can analyze, design, manufacture and test such solutions for customers to provide a custom turnkey solution. | Kitagawa NorthTech Inc. | 800-222-4138
