Modor Intelligence noted Indonesia is doubling down on building oil refineries for a variety of reasons. The bottom line is the industry can expect a spike in machine tool demand with a focus in metal cutting sector.
Researchers at Texas A&M University are taking a traditional manufacturing tool—metal cutting—and developing a more accessible method for understanding the behaviour of metals under extreme conditions.
Jacky Lee, Sales Director of PALMARY Machine Company Limited shares the business’ approach to address the changes in the metal cutting sector.
Diablo Tools (“Diablo”), which offers a solution-oriented range of best-in-the-world and best-for-our-world products for the professional user has added to its innovative range of AMPED carbide teeth reciprocating saw blades with two new blades: general purpose and medium metal blades.
Tool holding is the most conservative field of cutting tools, for which groundbreaking ideas seldom sprout. Have tool holding systems reached a cul-de-sac, with no new trends in sight? ISCAR offers its takes.
Tesla’s Model Y has made it into Malaysia – according to reports priced at about RM 200,000 (S$88,000). The cars are still assembled in China for obvious reasons. However, manufacturing may shift to Malaysia in due course.
In milling, selecting suitable substrate materials is increasingly relevant to improve the efficiency and productivity of manufacturing processes. Particularly in the field of tool and die making, the use of wear-resistant materials offers great potential to enhance component quality and reduce production costs at the same time.
A toss up has been on for ages and many metalworking players are in a dilemma between laser cutting and plasma. While the usual saying goes “it depends on your work”, there are differences which should not be overlooked.
Complex machining processes are unimaginable without the utilisation of face milling operations. ISCAR illustrates the world of metalworking is undergoing major changes.
