47 / HEADY TIMES FOR HIGH-FEED MILLING


New technology boosts a tried and true process.


SHOP SOLUTIONS


39 / QUICK-CHANGE JAWS REDUCE JOB SETUP BY 75%


57 / THE ‘BIG BUCKS’ CHASE LATEST HMC TECHNOLOGY


Dynamic machining, automation, software help match machine choice to applications.


67 / LINEAR PALLET SYSTEMS: STRAIGHT ROAD TO PROFITABILITY?


Improved software gives linear pallet systems a major boost.


76 / METROLOGY DRIVES QUALITY UPSTREAM


Metrology programming and software are adapting to the growing use of intelligent CAD models that embed tolerance information via Model-Based Defi nition or MBD.


MGW Ltd. (Augusta, GA) proved that the jaw system used in a workholding setup can make a huge difference in productivity in machining precision parts.


42 / FAST CHANGEOVER, PRECISE REPEATABILITY DRIVE SUCCESS


The need for increased production while maintaining tolerances as tight as 11 µm caused manufacturing engineers at Stober Drives Inc. (Marysville, KY) to re-evaluate their changeover procedures.


82 / TURNING LARGE RAIL PARTS WITHOUT BUSHY STRINGERS


The reliability and precision of manufactured heavy haul rail components make a big difference if it’s 20 below zero and you’re 1000 miles from home.

Cover: Directing cutting forces axially allows high-feed mills, such as this Walter M4002, to work effectively, even with long-reach applications. The roughing process—applicable for both solid-carbide and indexable insert tools—allows feed rates up to 10 times higher than normal rough milling. Photo courtesy of Walter USA LLC.
