Schaeffler has developed the MTKUSE telescopic actuator for secondary axes such as in pick-and-place applications or for tool transfer. Three precision linear ball bearing and guideway assemblies are arranged on top of one another, making the possible travel distance more than twice that of the basic actuator.
Tungaloy is expanding its solid carbide thread milling tools in the SolidThread family to include new lines enhancing aerospace machining center applications.
The new lines include the MTECS series with the aerospace UNJ and MJ internal thread profiles. Tungaloy is responding to increased aerospace demands with these offerings, covering a wide range of thread pitches and TPIs. In addition, free cutting single-point MTECI series is also being added with the internal ISO metric thread profile and internal/external 60 deg V profile. Low cutting force makes these single-point threading tools a great alternative when parts have poor stability with vulnerability to chatter or fine threads like M1x0.25.
With 22 new items in the SolidThread family, Tungaloy now offers a total of 293 items to address customers’ specific thread milling challenges and also the ThreadMilling Advisor, an on-line CNC code generator program able to create a wide range of thread milling programs, including UNJ and MJ threads for machining centers.
