Always adhere to tolerances during machining thanks to white-light interferometry

Tools used in machining are expensive, and therefore need to be optimally utilized to achieve a high degree of profitability and all that without endangering the workpiece. It is also critical to monitor the tool wear, especially when machining workpieces made of gray cast iron or highly heat-resistant cast steel. With the NetGAGE3D product range, Read more about Always adhere to tolerances during machining thanks to white-light interferometry[…]

Stable process and improved surface finish thanks to vibration-damped boring bars

FMS – clamping force control in every situation

The machining of large workpieces presents its own challenges. Depending on the nature of the workpiece, very high clamping forces must be applied. Clamped with face plates or claw boxes, the processing time can also be several days and shift changes. Conventional clamping has various disadvantages. Fluctuations in the clamping force arise due to the Read more about FMS – clamping force control in every situation[…]
