MEDICAL IMPLANT COMPANY INSTALLS

TWO NEW TORNOS MACHINES

For more than 20 years, Königsee Implantate

based in Königsee, deep in the Thuringian

Forest in Germany, has been developing and

producing implants and instruments for

traumatology, orthopedics and spinal

surgery with enormous success. In the course

of continuous process improvements, two

new Tornos EVODeco 16 machines have

been purchased.

In the medical industry, Königsee is a

significant manufacturer with a history that

dates back to the end of World War I. In 1919,

orthopedic technician Otto Bock founded the

company in Berlin to provide disabled war

veterans with prostheses and other

orthopedic products. Shortly afterwards, the

company moved to Königsee, in Thuringia.

This was the origin for Königsee Implantate

GmbH, which was founded by Erich

Orschler in 1993.

The success story started with a small

machine inventory and the strong

determination of its employees. Initially, the

company focused exclusively on the

development and manufacturing of osteosynthesis

systems for traumatology and

orthopedics. For more than 10 years now, it

OELHELD EXPANDS UK

PRESENCE

Renowned as an industry leading manufacturer and supplier of

metalworking fluids, water-soluble lubricants and filtration and

extraction systems, Oelheld UK has now expanded its UK operation.

The Denbigh headquarters in North Wales has now doubled in size

with the acquisition of a new warehousing unit.

Purchasing the adjacent unit, the additional warehouse unit has

doubled the company’s storage space from 6000sq/ft to 12,000sq/ft.

This acquisition has been driven by years of continual growth with

sales of metalworking fluids, filtration systems and EDM

consumables all rising consistently for a number of years.

Discussing the new acquisition, Oelheld UK Managing Director,

Mr Peter Mangan says: “This move is essential for our business to

continue on its trajectory of continued growth. For Oelheld to meet

the demands of our customers with next day availability of our

products, the additional storage facility is a must. The new area will

also provide space for the manufacture of bespoke filtration systems

for all types of metal working applications. Our goal has always been

to deliver first class solutions and service to our customer base, this

expansion is the next step in supporting our growth journey whilst

ensuring we maintain our customer service and support levels.”

has also been offering solutions for spinal

surgery.

The products for almost all bone sections,

from the collarbone to the toes, drastically

speed up the healing process of fractures

compared to conventional methods of

treatment. New solutions constantly arise

from the close collaboration with physicians

and surgical teams. The development

projects comprise the complete path of the

value chain, from the idea and development

of a prototype to the manufacture of the

product. During this process, painstaking

attention is paid to quality, since it is the

basic requirement for the long service life

and safe use of implants. This is why they

purchased two new EVODeco 16 machines

from Tornos.

In layman's terms, an osteo-synthesis

system consists of a plate that is matched

with the anatomy and screwed onto the

bones with a variable number of screws of

different lengths and diameters. Königsee

comprises the entire manufacturing process

from purchase and planning to the milling,

turning, grinding and galvanizing to the final

inspection and warehousing. Design

concepts are translated into series

production. The pricing pressure has

reached the medical industry and this means

that top quality produce from Germany can

only be competitive by applying a

sophisticated manufacturing strategy. For

this reason, Königsee has invested in Tornos.

ELESA CHROME RIVALS

STAINLESS STEEL

Elesa’s chrome on plastic technology is particularly suitable for

applications on machines and equipment whose parts, for hygienic

reasons, must be frequently cleaned by using water jets or steam. It is

therefore often a suitable replacement for stainless steel in many

arduous or specialist situations at a very considerable cost saving.

Example items are the VC.692-CR lobe knob series for machine

control, coupled with ERX-CR adjustable clamping handles and the

CQT.FM-CR quarter turn lever latches for enclosure locking to IP65.

This chrome finished polyamide technopolymer range is an

expanding feature within the extensive Elesa portfolio of standard

industrial components as the chrome-plating finish makes the

surface finish semi-glossy and homogeneous to facilitate cleaning

operations and is tested at -30°C up to +80°C.

The chrome-plated surface is resistant to wear, scrapes and

shocks. In laboratory tests carried out at ambient temperature (23°C),

the chrome-plated surface proved to be resistant to: sea water,

detergents, acetone, ethyl alcohol, formic acid and chlorine solutions.

GERMAN CHANCELLOR MERKEL, HAND IN HAND

WITH THE ROBOTS OF TOMORROW

Collaborating with robots and controlling them with gestures? German

chancellor Angela Merkel experienced first-hand how this can be

achieved in her opening day tour at the Hannover Messe 2018 during an

impressive live demonstration.

At the IBG Automation booth, Angela Merkel and the Mexican

President Enrique Peña Nieto and his wife Angélica Rivera, got up close

and in person with the robotic hands from SCHUNK. Both 5-finger hands

of the competence leader for gripping systems and clamping technology

are the world's first robotic grippers that have been certified and

approved for collaborative use by the German Social Accident Insurance

(DGUV).

Behind the playful exterior lies real technology: In industrial and

service robotics applications of the future, it will be possible to control,

configure and interact with robots only by using gestures, and without any

knowledge of programming. The automation specialist IBG Automation

has developed an application that does just that. The robot is controlled by

gestures or speech and calculates its movement in real time. Using a 3D

camera, the system is able to follow the hand and

arm movements of the user and imitate them 1:1.

The movements of the robot are mainly

dictated by the hands of the user. This

technology will make working next to robots

possible, hand in hand in the future. For

assembly tasks, for example, parts will be able

to be directly transferred into or out of the

robot's hands. "NXT LEVEL human/robot

collaboration" can be used anywhere that there

is a great deal of manual work necessary and

where there are high requirements on quality.

For the first time ever, it is making complete

cooperation between humans and robots

possible without any separation in time or

space. The user is not bound to a terminal, but

can move around freely and control the robot,

The installation of a new Hartford Infinity twincolumn

vertical machining centre has not only

provided Steel Dynamics UK with the enlarged

capability and capacity that it needed, but the

machine is also producing cycle time reductions

of at least 30 per cent compared with previous

routines.

“And with improved fixturing methods plus

enhancements to the tooling being used, we

fully expect to further improve on those

machining time savings in the near future,”

according to the Blackburn-based company’s

the entire automated system or individual

adjusting parameters and retrieving

information during maintenance or conversion

processes. The system integrates the human

workplace and innovative robot technology

into a shared and future-oriented collaborative

environment.

The mechatronic SCHUNK SVH gripping

hand designed for applications in assistance

and service robotics is staggeringly similar to its

human counterpart in terms of size, shape and

mobility. Its five fingers can carry out all kinds

of gripping operations with the help of a total of

nine drives. Elastic surfaces on the front

phalanxes ensure a reliable hold on the objects

NEW HARTFORD DOUBLE-COLUMN VMC MAKES A

DYNAMIC IMPRESSION IN BLACKBURN

operations director Andy Berry.

Supplied by T W Ward CNC Machinery

(Ward CNC), Hartford’s exclusive agent in the

UK and Ireland, the Infinity HSA420 has X, Y

and Z axes travels of 4,000 mm by 2,000 mm by

1,000 mm and, capable of accommodating

workpieces weighing 12, 000 kgs, the machine is

out-performing Steel Dynamic UK’s two

existing, older vertical machining centres for

both speed and capability, says Mr Berry.

“It’s the largest machine we’ve ever

installed,” he continues, “and while so far it has

largely been used on a relatively

new nuclear-based contract –

involving predominantly milling

operations on prismatic stainless

steel workpieces – it has perfectly

complemented our existing

manufacturing capabilities based

around ISO 9001: 2008

accreditation. These include water

jet, plasma and laser cutting, as

well as radial arm drilling and

vertical boring to 1,350 mm

diameter.”

Steel Dynamics UK is an

established supplier of a wide

range of components to customers

being gripped. Because the hand can perform

and imitate numerous gestures, the visual

communication between humans and the

service robot has become significantly easier.

This simplifies programming and promotes a

sense of acceptance for robots in the human

environment. The hand is designed in such a

way that a person is not injured during their

daily interactions. The open and closed-loop

control electronics as well as the power

electronics are fully integrated in the wrist,

meaning that particularly compact solutions

can be achieved.

in varied industry sectors ranging from

architectural, oil and gas, through to food and

beverage processing as well as petrochemical,

and in materials that also include duplex, nickel

and carbon alloys, aluminium, copper and

brass.

Its new Hartford machining centre is ideally

suited to handling all these materials, with a

solid construction based on a one-piece heavy

duty cast iron bed that provides high accuracy

and stability.

Linear guideways permit impressive feed

and traverse rates – up to 12,000 mm/min and

20 m/min in X (18 m/min in Y and 16m/min in

Z), respectively – while, as standard, the 22 kW

spindle motor is complemented by a 20-station

automatic toolchanger.

For Steel Dynamics, however, Ward CNC

was able to not only provide the machine on a

very short delivery – to satisfy the customer’s

urgent need to update its capability – but it also

provided a machine with a higher specification

main motor (26 kW) and larger capacity

toolchanger (40 tools) again to meet Steel

Dynamics’ specific demands.

GETTING A

KNIGHT OF THE

RAILS BACK UP

TO STEAM

The workshops of the Llangollen Railway

provide maintenance for its own rolling stock as

well as supporting other heritage railways

around the UK and building brand new steam

locomotives to order. Like many such

organisations it relies on donations, not only of

cash and time, but also machine tools. However,

when one particular project came up the

decision was taken to invest in new machinery

in the form of an XYZ SLX 425 ProTURN lathe.

The project in question was the restoration

of the iconic streamlined A4 Class locomotive

Sir Nigel Gresley. Built in 1937, the Sir Nigel

Gresley holds the post-war steam speed record

of 112 mph (180 km/h) which it achieved on 23

May 1959 while hauling a full train of

passengers. In its life it has had many

overhauls, and the latest is taking place in full

public view at the National Railway Museum in

York by the Sir Nigel Gresley Locomotive

Company Volunteers, except for its boiler,

which has been stripped of its streamlining and

transferred to Llangollen for refurbishment and

re-certification. As part of this boiler restoration

the boiler stays must be replaced, these

threaded shafts support and brace the metal

walls of the firebox against the pressure (up to

250 psi) and are an important safety feature. As

the boiler on the Sir Nigel Gresley requires 296

of these stays of various lengths with

Whitworth threads on either end an upgrade

In an effort to help members of the welding

community master their craft, ESAB Welding &

Cutting Products has created the ESAB Elite, a

team of respected welders from across the

globe, to share wisdom and provide practical

welding advice through social media. To kick

off the program, each partner has created

welding tips videos for esab.com/elite and the

playlist on ESAB’s YouTube channel.

“The welding industry has embraced

Instagram and YouTube as ways to share work,

solve problems and challenge each other to see

who can lay the best beads. The ESAB Elite

program adds fuel to their fire and channels the

energy of these social media leaders so that the

industry collectively benefits,” says Steven

from manual turning was deemed wise.

Llangollen Railway therefore took the

decision to invest in an XYZ SLX 425 Proturn

lathe with a 1.25 m between centre distanced

length. A decision that is paying dividends as

each boiler stay can now be machined complete

in half the time that they previously took on a

manual lathe. “The ProtoTRAK control makes

life very easy as it guides you through

everything, the TRAKing feature is very handy

and the Do-One canned cycle feature in the

control is extremely useful for machining

features such as radii and chamfers. In addition

to the easy conversational programming, we

always use the Verify graphical system for

Marketing Strategies, ESAB.

The inaugural Elite class represents a global

team of fabricators from diverse backgrounds

and skill sets. From creating custom metal roses

to designing the craziest food trucks in Texas,

each partner has undeniable talent and a desire

to see the industry grow. They weld for a living,

O’Toole.

The ‘Do-One feature in the ProtoTRAK SLX

control used on ProTURN lathes allows the

operator to combine manual and CNC

operation to create radii, tapers, fillets and

repair threads. The operator simply inputs the

angle or radii into the control and then by using

the electronic handwheels can manually create

the shape or form required. For one-off and

low-volume batches this can generate

significant time savings.

ESAB PARTNERS WITH PROACTIVE GAS SAFETY FOR CP7

GAS EQUIPMENT INSPECTOR TRAINING COURSES

ESAB, one of the world leader in welding

and cutting technologies, is excited to be

entering into a partnering with Proactive Gas

Safety Ltd (PGS) for the provision of Oxy-

Fuel CP7 Inspector courses, with successful

candidates being awarded a nationally

accredited EAL (Excellence in Achievement

LTD) Level 3 QCF Qualification

(Qualifications and Credit Framework) This

is the highest level of achievement available

for compressed gas safety training in the UK

and qualifies individuals to undertake

annual inspections of oxyacetylene/propane

equipment as required by

BCGA CP7 (British Compressed Gases

Association Code of Practice 7).

Under this scheme, successful completion

of the two-day course and QCF Qualification

provides a three-year Gas Safety Passport for

inspecting gas equipment. The credit cardsized

Gas Safety Passport shows the

Accredited Inspector’s photograph, the date

on which the course was taken and the date

on which re-certification is required. This is

particularly useful when registered

inspectors are working on customers’ sites

and need to present evidence of their

qualification.

The two-day Inspector course includes

classroom training, practical demonstrations

and hands-on sessions. Multiple-choice tests

are conducted throughout the course and

there is a formal exam at the end that

candidates must pass to be awarded their

certificate.

There will no longer be a requirement for

annual refresher training as re-certification

will take place on 3-yearly cycle. e.g. 2018 2

day training; 2021 -1 day refresher; 2024 -2

day refresher; 2027 - 1 day refresher.

ORGANISATION, EFFICIENCY AND CONFORMITY AT JOTA

ADVANCED ENGINEERING

Built around its successful motorsport team

the Jota Group has used the skills and

experience that winning at Le Mans brings to

develop a business that spans Jota Sport

which designs, builds and supports racewinning

GT, LMP2 and LMP1 class cars; Jota

Aviation, a successful aviation charter

business, and Jota Advanced Engineering, a

relatively new, but dynamic sub-contract

machining facility. The driving force behind

the Group’s success is its passion for

everything it does, whether preparing a racewinning

Le Mans car, flying people and

cargo around the globe or precision

machining exotic materials. The group’s aim

is simply to be the best, by focusing on

attention to detail and delivering on its

promises.

While Jota Advanced Engineering is the

latest name to join the Group, machining has

been a part of the business for many years.

Initially the race team technicians used

manual machines to create one-off bespoke

parts on, this developed into a small machine

shop contained in the race teams workshop.

The growth in demand for more complex

parts for its own cars, along with

opportunities in the sub-contract machining

sector, saw a need for expansion and Jota

Advanced Engineering was created. Already

accredited with ISO9001 Jota Advanced

Engineering is working towards further

accreditations in the automotive sector that

will assist it to further expand its already

nationwide customer base from the

Automotive, motorsport aerospace and

power generation sectors.

“We have built the business around the

Group’s common goal of delivering results,

in our case drawing on our precision

engineering skills to create tight tolerance

work, often in difficult to machine materials,

and in many cases taking on work that others

didn’t want to do,” says Ryan Goodger,

Director, Jota Advanced Engineering. In

order to achieve this the company has

invested in a range of high-tech machine

tools, including multi-axis turning centres

with live tooling and a five-axis machining

centre. These are supported by the latest in

CADCAM and production control software,

along with a team of highly skilled engineers.

With the growth in the machining business

and number of machines, came a

requirement for more tools and

workholding, which in turn needed to be

stored in a planned and efficient manner.

With the race team, Jota Sport, already

using Fami storage in its race bays it was a

logical step to call System Store Solutions

back in to design the workshop storage

layout for Jota Advanced Engineering.

“Organisation and image is key in the sectors

that we operate in so to have a consistent

look running through the race team and

engineering division made perfect sense,”

says Ryan Goodger. “Not only that, but to be

able to respond quickly to customer

demands we need to be confident that we can

locate tools and fixtures quickly, with the

Fami solution we know everything has a

place and everything is in its place. In

addition to the increased efficiency that the

Fami storage from System Store Solutions

gives us, the workshop environment is also

more manageable as it has become second

nature to keep things neat and tidy.”

LANTEK MES MANAGER PROVIDES COMPANIES

WITH AN EASY WAY TO TRACE PRODUCTION AND

GET ON THE ROAD TO INDUSTRY 4.0

Implementing Industry 4.0 can seem daunting

for sheet metal companies. However, one of

the industry leader Lantek has some software

tools which provide the first steps, delivering

practical and relevant solutions at an

affordable cost, aimed at producing an

immediate impact on efficiency and customer

satisfaction.

With Lantek MES Manager

manufacturing execution system, engineers

can upload a bill of materials for the products

being manufactured including parts and

subassemblies. Parts are then filtered

according to material type and thickness

ready for nesting in Lantek Expert

CAD/CAM software. At this stage

additional parts from other jobs or

remanufactured parts can be added to the

nest, optimising material utilisation.

Within Lantek MES Manager, the full

sequence of operations required for the

manufacture of each part or subassembly is

stored. This can include for example, laser

cutting, punching, bending, assembly and

painting.

On the shop floor Lantek MES Wos

resides on standard touch screen computers

In June last year, Guhring officially opened

its new 60,000sq/ft £12m manufacturing

facility on Birmingham's Advanced

Manufacturing Hub. The new UK

headquarters of the German owned cutting

tool manufacturer was a necessity for the

company to fulfil its future UK growth

ambitions.

For the previous three years, growth had

been constrained by the company being

located on two separate sites that were

crammed to capacity with manufacturing

equipment. Despite the space constraints, it

was two Vollmer PCD erosion machines that

had proven integral to the success of the PCD

tooling department; running efficiently and

productively to keep Guhring ahead of its

increasing order book.

In the 12 months since moving to the new

facility, Guhring has increased staff numbers

by 15% - taking on apprentices in the process.

What is more pertinent is that Guhring UK

previously manufactured 35% of its solid

carbide and PCD product lines in the UK

with the remaining 65% imported from

Germany. Since the factory move, this ratio

has increased to 50% UK manufactured.

Standard product lines and a small quantity

of application specific tooling are imported

or tablets for data capture and to provide

operators with details of the sequence of

manufacturing operations. Links to the

machines record start and finish times for

cutting, while for other tasks employees can

log on to jobs and operations recording the

progress of each part around the workshop

in a paperless environment.

Links back to Lantek MES Manager make

this information available in report form so

that managers can see exactly where parts

are in the production process in real time.

With this live information, companies can

assess and improve the efficiency of

machinery and processes, ensure parts are

delivered on time, quickly detect delays and

from Germany; however January 2018

proved a landmark month with UK

manufactured special tooling sales

outstripping standard product sales for the

first time in Guhring UK’s 40 year history.

The UK manufacturing and re-grinding

divisions of the business have seen sales soar

since the move to the new factory.

Additionally, the installation of a second

coating plant has further underpinned the

company’s strong sales performance.

Integral to the success of the PCD tooling

division at Guhring is its Vollmer QWD750

and QWD750H wire erosion machines.

As Guhring UK’s National Sales Manager,

Mr Dave Hudson says: “The Guhring

cost overruns and provide customers with

accurate information about the progress of

their orders.

For manufacturers with an existing ERP or

sales order processing system, data can be

transferred into and out of Lantek MES

Manager, making use of the investment in

existing technology. However, companies also

have the option of expanding the system with

Lantek’s Integra software. This system

provides wide ranging functionality including

quotation and CRM capabilities, highly

accurate costings, using the intelligence of

Lantek Expert CADCAM, as well as stock

management, documentation and invoicing

and control of multi-site operations.

Taking the first steps towards Industry 4.0

with Lantek MES Manager and Lantek MES

Wos is easy and will deliver traceability and

transparency in manufacturing. Areas for

efficiency improvement will be easier find

and test for effectiveness, customers will be

kept better informed and hence more loyal

and the headache of controlling production

will be a thing of the past.

GUHRING’S PCD TOOLING DIVISION RELIES ON

VOLLMER TECHNOLOGY

manufacturing plant runs 3-shifts for 5 ½

days a week whilst the automation level of

the Vollmer machines in the PCD

department only requires 2-shifts per day.

This labour saving is credit to the Vollmer

machines and our lean manufacturing

processes and workflow scheduling.”

As Mr Hudson says: “Manufacturers

increasingly require multi-function and often

multi-stepped cutting tools to reduce

processes, cycle times and also improve

quality and process stability. This is

particularly true of OEMs and companies in

high-volume environments. To serve these

customers, some special tools will have more

than 18 to 30 PCD segments that are stepped

along the tool shank. The Vollmer QWD

machines are extremely precise and will hold

a 5 micron tolerance in our temperature

controlled building with no problems. This

tight-tolerance capability eliminates tool

grinding processes in many instances. By

eliminating secondary tool grinding, we can

reduce production times; secondary set-up

times and improve the workflow and

throughput of the PCD department.”

hyperMILL ® CAM

STRATEGIES

OPEN MIND will be exhibiting at the

Farnborough International Airshow from 16 to 22

July 2018. On Stand 41660 in Hall 4, the

CAD/CAM developer will present the

hyperMILL® CAM solution for companies in the

aviation and aerospace industry. The leading

software for 5axis machining pushes the limits of

machining centers to meet the special industry

requirements for complex parts and sophisticated

materials. OPEN MIND will provide information

about milling, turning, and HSC, HPC, 2.5D, 3D,

and 5axis machining, as well as process chains

involving PLM and simulations.

OPEN MIND will present proven solutions

for the aviation industry with modules for easy,

secure programming of impeller, blisk, and blade

machining. hyperMILL® also includes many

interesting features for the challenges posed by

other complex parts. These include a range of

innovative 5axis simultaneous strategies that

enable efficient machining of challenging

geometries such as free-form surfaces or deep

cavities. For example, 5axis helical drilling, a

helical tilt milling method in which the milling

tool is tilted in cutting mode, allows holes to be

formed easily and efficiently. A second tilt

prevents collision with the hole wall. This is

advantageous because only one tool is needed for

different drill diameters, or open pockets of

varying sizes. Pre-drilling is not necessary, and

the strategy is very well suited for materials that

are hard to cut.

The hyperMILL® MAXX Machining

performance package is comprised of a set of

machining strategies that are highly popular in

the aerospace industry. Machining strategies in

this package that will be presented at the trade

fair include the extremely efficient finishing of

difficult-to-access surfaces for which OPEN

MIND has developed 5axis tangent plane

machining with conical barrel cutters. This offers

enormous potential for optimization: it takes 90

percent less time than conventional methods.

“Aircraft manufacturers and their suppliers

represent an industry that sets high standards in

terms of innovative materials, machining quality,

and secure processes. At the Farnborough

International Airshow, we will show attendees

how they can use innovative hyperMILL®

strategies to further increase their productivity

and competitiveness,” says Illias Mustafa,

Director Global Accounts, at OPEN MIND

Technologies.

SICK LAUNCHES PLUG-AND-PLAY

‘SNAPSHOT’ SENSOR

SICK has launched a configurable, plug-andplay

3D detection sensor based on its

Visionary-T range of industrial 3D imaging

cameras, harnessing the imaging power of

SICK’s single-snapshot Time-of–Flight (TOF)

technology for a range of detection and

collision warning duties.

With on-board processing, the Visionary-

T DT sensor can be easily configured for a

variety of applications to detect the presence

or absence of 3D objects. It therefore offers a

versatile, entry-level option for collision

warning on forklifts, Automated Guided

Vehicles (AGVs) and Carts (AGCs).

Tasks that were previously difficult to

achieve with a fixed camera are now quickly

and easily accomplished by the Visionary-T

DT, for example to detect whether a bin, tote

German tooling manufacturer, Horn, has

introduced two grooving systems for internal

machining of bores. System 209 is intended

for bores of diameter 16 mm and above,

while system 216 machines bores greater

than or equal to 20 mm diameter.

Both systems utilise toolholders with

internal cooling. A robust shank with

elliptical cross-section of the boring bar neck

ensures excellent damping properties. The

ground shanks, of g6 quality, are available in

left-hand or right-hand design.

Coolant flows from a nozzle in the

clamping finger and from the side of the tool

holder. The two jets cool the cutting zone

effectively and remove chips from the inside

of the workpiece in a controlled, efficient

manner.

Precision-sintered, indexable, two-edged

inserts with cutting widths from 2 to 6 mm

are available in geometries .5, .1A and .KF for

cutting medium strength materials. All three

geometries offer good chip control and

targeted chip breaking, even on longchipping

materials.

or stillage is completely empty, part full, or

overloaded.

The sensor provides 3D image analysis

with a simple yes/no, occupied or

unoccupied, signal depending on the

configuration. A discrete output signal

enables easy integration with an automated

system. Direct communication capability can

be set up to a visual display, an acoustic

alarm or a PC, and to enable activity

recording for later appraisal of any incidents.

The Visionary-T DT can assess the

availability of a workstation or cell on a

production line where a large object, such as

a vehicle or other machinery assembly, is to

be moved for the next phase and warn of any

intrusions.

SICK’s Visionary-T imaging sensors

capture high-resolution real-time 3D images

with one shot of light, dispensing with the

need to profile a moving object through laser

triangulation. The SICK single-snapshot

technology does not need movement to

create the depth of field and object resolution

required for high-performance 3D detection.

The Visionary-T DT can be configured

using a PC, SICK’s SOPAS software tool and

a purpose-designed Graphical User Interface.

3D objects or detection zones can be taught

from the camera without the need for

complex programming.

NEW INTERNAL GROOVING SYSTEM

The 209 system toolholders with a shank

diameter of 16 mm allow retraction distances

of up to 30 mm in conjunction with a

grooving depth of 3.5 mm. For bores with a

diameter of 18 mm or above, a more stable

shank diameter of 20 mm, also with a

retraction distance of 30 mm, can be used to

achieve a grooving depth of 5 mm. The 216

system toolholders, with a shank diameter of

20 or 25 mm, enable grooving depths down

to 7 mm at a projection length of 2 x D.

SUMITOMO

OVERCOMES

PROBLEMS

Sumitomo Electric Hardmetal has developed

a new style GS chipbreaker that overcomes

problems and improves control of the

process when milling deep shoulders and

slots involving up to 6 mm depth-of-cut on

components using its SEC-Sumi Dual Mill

(DFC) Type cutter body range.

When successfully introduced two years ago,

the DFC Type Dual Mill was a breakthrough

in cutter body and insert design. The XNMU

inserts bring new levels of economics in

reduced costs as they are available as doublesided

inserts with six corners.

With the addition of GS to the existing

XNMU series of three chipbreaker inserts

this specifically accommodates deeper

cutting situations up to 6 mm in steel and

cast iron. The existing chipbreakers were

targeted at L for light milling, G for general

purpose and H for roughing as well as heavy

interrupted cuts plus hard steel milling. The

cutting edge of the GS chipbreaker is set at 25

deg with a range of corner radii between 0.4

mm and 1.6 mm. The cutting edge enhances

the toughness of the insert which also

incorporates a wiper edge that helps to

optimise machining accuracy and surface

finish.

The new cutter body and insert

development of DFC capitalised on the

benefits of higher security and accuracy of

index by separating the location area from

the cutting edge so that it is able to match the

machining accuracy of single-sided inserts.

It also provided higher stability under cut

and especially when high, optimised feed

rates are involved.

DFC Type Dual Mill spans shank bodies

in standard and fine pitch between 25 mm

and 80 mm diameter with between two and

seven teeth. Shell mill cutters are in

standard, fine and extra fine pitch between 50

mm and 160 mm diameter and with between

four and 16 teeth.

RAINFORD

PRECISION

INTRODUCE HIGH

ACCURACY END

MILLS

Specifically aimed at the toolmaking industry,

Rainford Precision has now introduced the new

series of HSB-S Unimax ball nose end mills from

Union Tool. The new range of small short shank

end mills is targeted at manufacturers who

demand the utmost in precision, performance

and longevity when machining intricate features

and challenging materials.

The new 2-flute short-shank end mills are

ground to an H4 tolerance of 0/-0.004 mm,

demonstrating that this product line is the tool of

choice for precision machine shops that demand

performance levels that are beyond the realms of

most tooling vendors. Designed for application

with precision machine tools and tool holders

such as shrink-fit holders, the HSB-S is offered

with an overall length from 35 to 40 mm to

minimise tool protrusion and maximise rigidity.

Importantly a key feature of this range is the

±0.003 mm tolerance of the ball nose radius to

improve surface finish when machining this is

aided by having a +0/-0.004 mm shank

tolerance ensuring concentricity of the cutting

edges is at its highest.

The HSB-S Unimax is offered with a ball nose

radius of R0.1, R0.15, R0.2, R0.3, R0.4, R0.5, R0.75,

R1, R1.5 and R2 mm with a length of cut from 0.2

mm to 4 mm. Designated as a series for

machining materials of 40HRC and above; this

range delivers uncompromising levels of tool life

and performance. This is guaranteed through the

innovative HardMax coating technology,

negative rake angle geometry and overall

precision of the tool geometry. These features

combine to provide the ideal balance of tool

hardness, heat-resistance and durability. The

negative rake reduces as the radius transitions to

the periphery and this minimises tool deflection

and generates mirror-finish surfaces that far

exceed the quality of anything seen before.

As well as offering precision, performance,

uncompromising surface finishes and tool life,

the HSB-S also delivers flexibility with its ability

to effectively machine materials such as carbon,

alloy, pre-hardened and hardened steels up to

70HRC. Additionally, the HardMax coating

enables the HSB-S to efficiently process copper,

cast iron, titanium alloys and heat-resistant

alloys.

SICK’S RELY

SAFETY RELAYS:

“NEW TRICKS”

FROM AN OLD

FRIEND

WHEN it comes to choosing the right safety

relay, identifying the smallest performance

improvements can result in big productivity

gains. That’s why SICK has developed its ReLy

safety relays to achieve a 10 ms response time

with a class-leading, long and durable product

lifecycle.

In a range of just four products, the SICK

ReLy safety relays meet most needs for

monitoring safety functions or safety sensors up

to PL e (EN ISO 13849) and SIL3 (IEC 61508),

while enabling simpler selection, installation

and maintenance.

“Safety relays may be an everyday device

for monitoring safety sensors and switches, but

identifying the best-performing product for

your application can be a time-consuming and

laborious process,” explains Seb Strutt SICK

UK’s safety specialist. “With such a plethora of

different devices on the market, we wanted to

rationalise safety relay specification.

“SICK’s ReLy safety relays therefore offer

some great “new tricks” from an old friend. Our

aim was to achieve true gains in performance

and usability while making it easier for

engineers to stay with a high-performing range

they can rely on, saving their selection time and

reducing stock inventories.”

The SICK ReLy safety relay more than

halves the response time of comparable safety

relays, thereby reducing corresponding safety

distances. Even a small reduction in safety

distances can result in a significant overall

increase in operator productivity on a machine.

The addition of a ‘reset-required’ output to

the ReLy relays and on-board diagnostics via an

LED status display enables easy maintenance

with minimal downtime. The SICK ReLy is also

capable of operating for a class-leading number

of switching cycles before replacement is

needed.

The ReLy’s narrow 18mm-wide housing

takes up minimal space in the control cabinet,

with easy push-in front wiring and a one-click

fit-and-release mechanism for simple set-up

and quick replacement.

A NEW ANSWER

FOR HIGH-

PRECISION

GRINDING

Ewag’s Profile Line – a new five-axis grinding

centre that sets new standards in the high

precision machining of indexable carbide inserts

– is now available in the UK from Walter Ewag

UK, a member of the United Grinding Group.

Developed jointly by Ewag AG and sister

company Walter Maschinenbau GmbH, and

incorporating Ewag's world-leading software

and tooling expertise, which includes Ewag’s

Smart chuck, a host of additional innovative

features are provided on a machine having a

rapid traverse rate of 15 m/min and with X, Y

and Z axis travels of 330 mm, 200 mm, 470 mm,

respectively:

• Integrated six-station wheel changer

• The use of customer-specific pallets

• Vision system for part recognition

• Innovative ProGrind and Helitronic Tool

Studio software.

The six-station robot changer for grinding

wheel sets and coolant supply manifolds

ensures optimum wheel selection, thereby

maximising the machining volume for sintered

blanks.

Another outstanding feature for autonomous

multi-shift operation is the use of an integrated

six-axis Fanuc robot cell where customerspecific

pallets can be held and a high-resolution

CCD-HD vision system is available for

loading/unloading using magnetic grippers.

Cleaning, re-clamping and centring stations can

also be integrated and adapted to customerspecific

demands.

In addition, Profile Line for the first time

combines Ewag’s renowned ProGrind software

with Walter’s market-leading Helitronic Tool

Studio software in the user-friendly Fanuc CNC

system for the fast and effective 3-D simulation

of production routines.

The result is a dramatic expansion in the

range of applications that can be performed on a

wide variety of interchangeable inserts. Indeed,

even the most complex insert geometries – such

as those used for drilling or milling applications

- can be ground in one set-up with resulting

benefits in both precision and productivity.

NEW HELLER HF 3500 5-AXIS

HORIZONTAL MACHINING CENTRE IS

BUILT IN THE UK

FIBRE LASER

CUTTING MACHINE

FOR 12-METRE SHEET

The range of laser cutting systems

manufactured by Swiss company Bystronic

(www.bystronic.com) has been extended

with the introduction of a new model capable

of processing sheet up to 12 metres long by

two metres wide. BySprint Fiber 12020 is able

to cut large components or more parts of

smaller size, extending versatility and

productivity.

As larger sheets allow more efficient

nesting, material utilisation is high so waste

is minimised. Proprietary BySoft 7 software

supports the user with intelligent nesting

routines. Power of the laser source can be 3, 4

or 6 kW to suit the intended applications.

In addition to having the ability to cut

extra-large metal sheets, the 12020 format

machine allows several smaller sheets to be

processed by positioning them next to each

other on the BySprint Fiber’s long cutting

table, extending uninterrupted production

time compared with smaller machines.

Bystronic also offers the BySprint Fiber for

cutting maximum sheet sizes in metres of 8 x

2, 6.5 x 2, 4 x 2 and 3 x 1.5

Heller (www.heller.biz) has

introduced a new model to its 5-axis,

horizontal-spindle machining centre

range. The HF 3500 is one of the

models being built in the new

manufacturing flow line at its

Redditch factory, along with the

larger HF 5500 and numerous sizes of

4-axis machine for global markets.

The company is one of only two that

currently builds machine tools in the

UK and as a consequence is ideally

placed to provide enhanced levels of

service and support to customers.

The HF 3500 is intended for 5-

sided or simultaneous 5-axis dynamic

machining of medium to large batches of

complex prismatic parts, from small

workpieces to heavier components up to the

550 kg maximum table load. An optional

Speed Package enables 10 m/s2 acceleration

and rapids of 90 m/min to be achieved,

reducing chip-to-chip time by approximately

10 percent compared with the standard

machine.

Working volume is defined by X / Y / Z

travels of 710 / 750 / 710 mm, with generous

interference contours. Feedback of axis

position to the control is via linear scales for

maximum precision. The machine can be

equipped with a lift-and-rotate pallet

changer for series 5-sided production, while

pallet automation solutions are available.

The fourth and fifth axes are provided by

a rotary table on a +30 to -120 degree

swivelling trunnion, both with direct drive,

which moves towards the spindle rather than

vice versa. According to Heller Machine

Tools managing director Matthias Meyer, the

configuration minimises vibration of the

spindle and hence of the cutter for better

component accuracy and increased tool life.

Four motor spindle options are available

with speeds up to 18,000 rpm and torques up

to 354 Nm. The lift-and-swivel toolchanger

has two NC axes for short idle times and

consistent operation. Chain-type tool

magazine capacities are HSK-A 63: 54, 80 and

160 pockets or HSK-A 100: 50, 100 and 150

pockets. A central, open chip conveyor

ensures efficient swarf collection and

removal, already promoted by the free chip

fall characteristics of the horizontal-spindle

design.

NEW FLOW LINE FOR

MACHINING CENTRE

PRODUCTION AT

HELLER'S UK FACTORY

More than £2 million has been spent

upgrading the Heller Machine Tools

manufacturing plant and headquarters in

Redditch, UK. The administrative and

applications engineering departments have

benefitted from a comprehensive makeover, a

new customer area for machine demonstrations

has been added, and production output of

horizontal machining centres has risen by 30

per cent.

The Worcestershire factory started operating

in 1995, 21 years after the formation the UK

subsidiary of Heller Maschinenfabrik GmbH,

Germany. As part of the latest initiatives,

activities in Redditch have expanded into

assembly of 5-axis machines in addition to 4-

axis models for world markets. The site is also a

global competence centre for high quality, high

precision turnkey projects and innovative

manufacturing solutions.

David Evans, operations manager at the

plant commented, "As part of our expansion,

we recently installed an 11-station Strothmann

flow line and new logistics system for complete

manufacture of horizontal machining centres.

O r i g i n a l l y ,

our machine

assembly was

purely a

mechanical

process on an

adjacent flow

line and the

machine had

to be lifted off

to be finished

in a separate

part of the

factory.

"When we

first moved

from block

assembly of machines in one location to the old

flow line, there was an immediate 20 per cent

increase in productivity. The new Strothmann

system has resulted in a further reduction of at

least 20 per cent in overall assembly time and

we intend to improve on that further by making

the process even leaner."

Heller's managing director in the UK, Dipl.-

Ing. Matthias Meyer concluded, “The fact that

we manufacture in this market gives our

customers in the UK and Ireland considerable

added value. Not only does our staff have a

level of product knowledge that is much deeper

than it would be otherwise, but also we can call

on shop floor operatives, all of whom are

apprentice-trained, to help out with installation,

commissioning and service if required.

FLEXIBILITY AND QUALITY…ASSURED!

With the FORM family of die-sinking

electrical discharge machining (DSEDM)

solutions, GF Machining Solutions is aiming to

ensure manufacturers continuing success.

The Agie Charmilles FORM X, FORM S,

FORM P and FORM E series of die-sink EDM

machines feature improved software and a

range of technical innovations all designed to

give precision mould makers and component

manufacturers a definite competitive advantage.

Whether the requirement is for a single

(stand alone) machine for straightforward use or

with full and integrated automation, FORM

machine tool solutions enable users to meet

current and future challenges with greater

flexibility, improved machining accuracy and

reduced operational costs.

The machines provide customers with

Econowatt technology to save energy, a variety

of Industry 4.0-oriented connectivity features to

help support manufacturers’ digital

transformation, and e-Tracking software for

EDM process monitoring and full traceability.

From faster rib machining to micromachining,

the Agie Charmilles FORM family is

the outcome of GF Machining Solutions’

continued investment in advanced DSEDM

research.

Sumitomo Electric Hardmetal has extended

its highly successful WFX-Type Wave Mill

screw-locking shoulder milling cutter range

using the proven economic advantageous series

of four corner inserts into the WFXH, a high feed

rate multi-purpose roughing, and the WFXC

chamfering-type bodies.

By maintaining the use of existing inserts in

the WFX Series, tool management and stock

holding of inserts becomes more economic

extending their use to a wider range of

applications. The combination of the existing

inserts and new cutter bodies offer high stability

and are able to create optimal levels

of axial run-out within 0.03 mm on

materials including steel and exotic

alloys, stainless and die steels, cast

iron and non-ferrous materials.

The original WFX Wave Mill

high precision cutters were

developed to provide optimised

squareness up to 90 deg shoulders.

For depths-of-cut up to 10 mm, the

cost-efficient four corner insert with

the high performance Sumitomo

developed ACE-Coat Super ZX

multi-layer PVD coating, in-cut life

was some 1.5 times greater than

conventional inserts.

This high productivity return is also due to

the precision machined seating in the body and

controlled insert manufacture to enable high

orders of shoulder squareness on the milled

component which is also achieved with excellent

levels of surface finish.

The result is that AgieCharmilles FORM

series users are able to achieve better

performance in machining with either graphite

and/or copper electrodes.

The FORM series allows for repeatable

machining of micro-cavities and the machines’

onboard ‘iGAP’ technology guarantees the

rigidity of plastic, injection-moulded end

products with deep, plastic-reinforced ribs. It

also ensures fast, accurate machining of rib

cavities with respect to the required demoulding

taper and VDI homogeneity

throughout the cavity surface.

SUMITOMO’S WFX-TYPE WAVE MILL EXPANDED

WITH WFXH AND WFXC

The extended Wave Mill cutter bodies are

available in shell and endmill versions each

using four-corner inserts. For high feed rate

applications and roughing cycles, WFXH

inserts are set at 15 deg cutting edge angles

while the WFXC chamfer-type bodies have a 45

deg cutting edge.

The optimised edge strength of the WFX

indexable inserts is achieved using a convex

shape whilst a flat between its corners

minimises marking of the machined part due to

any differences in levels when step cutting

using sequential cutting depths. In addition, a

wiper insert with 15 deg cutting edge to its

single corner is also available in order to achieve

even greater surface flatness and finer finishes.

The largest British manufacturer of

Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) tooling,

Exactaform, recently moved into its purposebuilt

business facility. From this new site the

company designs, develops and produces

world-class cutting tools for aerospace,

automotive and motorsports as well as

precision engineering applications.

CUTTING TOOLS

EXACTAFORM INVESTMENT LEADS

TO A SPARKLING PERFORMANCE

When John Inglis started his fledgling

company back in 1979 it was trading as a

supplier of Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD)

and Cubic Boron Nitride (CBN) inserts,

primarily to suit the automotive sector.

However, as modern materials evolved,

Exactaform Cutting Tools changed its focus

and has since become one of the largest

premier manufacturers of PCD cutting tools in

the Europe, supplying global aerospace and

automotive markets.

Until recently Exactaform operated from

multi-unit facilities in Coventry to provide

technically advanced cutting tool solutions for

its customers’ non-ferrous applications. As

John Inglis recalls: “We continually re-invest

in plant, machinery and engineers, to support

the growing global demand for our tooling,

and with 30 per cent year-on-year growth over

the past few years we knew we would exceed

the limits of our previous facilities. So, at the

end of 2015 we acquired this site. Following

the due planning process and architectural

designs honed to meet our exact requirements,

we moved in within a three-week period

during August 2017.”

cent delivery of cutting tools to our

customers,” states Peter Raynor.

Two new machine tools were also added to

the extensive list during the move, a DMG

Mori Lasertec and a Rollomatic ShapeSmart

NP3. The Lasertec machine increases the

workshop’s efficiency when cutting PCD

blanks, as John Inglis says: “An operation that

previously took several hours using wire EDM

can now be carried out in just 20 minutes.”

Over 60 highly skilled staff, from tool and

cutter grinders to experienced applications

engineers, support Exactaform’s customer

base. “We focus on diamond tooling for exotic

materials, supplying demanding markets with

New Exactaform Facility in Coventry

machining fibre reinforced composites,

aluminium and composite stacks,” explains

Jamie White.

He continues: “Our growth provides

customers with big company quality, but we

maintain our small company care. This means

customers can ring me, and get an answer

from me. Even though we are busy we value

and place importance on human interaction

and trust.”

Able to design and produce plain and chip

breaking cutting tools between 2 mm and 300

mm diameter, at an infinite number of

increments between, most of the machine tools

on the shopfloor feature automated loading

Today, Exactaform operates from 22,000 ft2 of

the new 44,000 ft2 facility. The remaining

space has been built ready for planned future

growth, but will be let out on a short-term

business lease in the meantime. The detailed

planning required to move all the multi-axis

CNC tool and cutter grinding machines and

ancillary equipment was significant, and the

task was jointly addressed by directors Peter

Raynor and Jamie White.

“We had to plan and produce cutting tools in

advance, to cover the period of time that each

machine would be in-transit and

recommissioned at the new site. Careful

preparation and hard work by everyone

involved resulted in us achieving a 100 per

high precision, high speed machining

requirements. Our PCD tooling has been

proven a highly desirable solution to

and unloading. Peter Raynor says: “Batch

sizes vary, but we can multi load our Walter,

Vollmer and Rollomatic machines to keep

them running around-the-clock, even over the

weekend. It keeps the cost down for the

customer and allows us to meet very tight

delivery timescales.”

As well as new PCD tooling the company also

offers a cost-effective refurbishment service

for its own and competitors tools. Re-tipped

and refurbished tools can also be turned

around quicker if the customer needs a

specific tool back quickly, and it allows

customers to extend the life expectancy of

their investment.

FINISHING, CLEANING AND DEGREASING

CLEAN AND BURR-FREE

With increasing requirements for burr-free, clean components, there

is growing focus on the technologies that can help manufacturers

avoid the indignity of having parts rejected by customers for failing

to meet these demands. Needless to say, for complex, tight-tolerance

parts, the demands are even higher, which is why Walther Trowal

has recently redesigned its CM vibratory system to ensure the

optimised surface finishing of high-value workpieces like blisks for

aeroplane and land-based turbines. The redesign is said to ensure

that components receive a uniform, homogeneous, high-quality

finish with repeatable results.

To date, the surface finishing of blisks has been performed

manually with grinding disks and other manually operated tools.

Due to the ‘human factor’, the quality of the

final finish could vary greatly between

workpieces.

The Walther Trowal CM system allows

the deburring and general surface

improvement of components with diameters

of up to 980mm. Single workpieces are

mounted to the inner dome of the processing

bowl. After the grinding media has been

filled into the bowl, a vibratory motor causes

the complete work bowl to vibrate. This

effect causes a constant ‘rubbing’ of the

media against the fixed workpiece. Since the

rubbing action is highly homogeneous, a

uniform, even finish on all surface areas of

the disk and blades is said to be achieved.

After completion of the process, the surface

roughness readings amount to Ra 0.2 to

0.4µm.

Starting with an initial surface roughness

of Ra 4 to 5µm, the desired finishing results

are achieved within 5-6 hours. Compared

with this method, the manual finishing of

On the topic of vibratory bowl finishing, a

recent entrant to the UK market is TAD,

which now has systems available via TM

Robotics. The TAD range of vibrating and

electromagnetic feeding bowls includes

bespoke bowl-feeding systems that are

customised for clients in niche industries, or

manufacturers with specific challenges.

Each feeding system meets demands such

as the positioning of geometrically complex

parts, gentle handling and high frequency

rates. For example, TAD feeding systems for

food and beverage industry components are

designed to comply with all FDA

regulations. Every bowl feeder in this range

is made of AISI 304 or 316L stainless steel

with mirror-polished, electro-polished or

projected polyurethane finishes, ensuring

high levels of hygiene.

Guyson is a familiar name in product

finishing, and in another industry

development worthy of note, has recently

updated its showroom facilities in Skipton to

better reflect its range of manual blast

cabinets, as well as its offer for finishing parts

made using additive manufacturing

techniques.

Customers visiting the company’s

showroom can now be walked through the

range of standard Formula and Euroblast

suction-fed manual blast cabinets, trying

each for size. These blast cabinets are

complemented with a range of matching dust

collectors; some fully connected up to their

blast cabinets to show complete systems.

Application-specific blast systems on

display in the showroom include the Guyson

Wheelmaster, which is designed for blastetching

alloy wheels, and incorporates many

special handling features that enable the

operator to use this wheel blasting system

safely, without heavy lifting.

From an additive manufacturing

component perspective, there is an 8m-wide

display unit that presents a 3D rendering of

the company’s latest robotically controlled

finishing station and powder recovery

system.

Of course, once parts have been finished,

there is usually a requirement for final

washing operations. At Runcorn-based

Husco International, a specialist in hydraulic

and electrohydraulic controls, a number of MecWash parts-washing

systems have been installed. In fact, Husco commissioned its first

MecWash Midi for use at the company’s European headquarters in

Runcorn, in 2000. Since then, the company has installed a further six

cleaning systems. Another two machines will be delivered this year,

totalling nine MecWash systems altogether.

“Solid particle contamination can interfere with the lubrication

process in hydraulic fluid systems, causing wear to the components

that can result in additional maintenance and repair costs, and a

substantial decrease in the system’s service life,” explains Husco’s

senior manufacturing engineer Mike Gandy.

Worn components can eventually lead to the seizure of parts,

higher fluid temperatures, leaks and reduced

control. Contamination can also damage the

system’s fluid by accelerating oxidation –

again resulting in inefficient operation.

“All of our parts must be free from

contamination before they reach the

assembly line, where even the smallest levels

of contamination can have significant longterm

effects,” says Mike Gandy. “The

MecWash machines are renowned within the

hydraulic industry for achieving high

cleanliness, which is the main reason we

continue to invest in this technology.”

The Midi and its replacement system,

the MWX400, clean hydraulic control

valves used in off-highway applications,

including agricultural machinery, materials

handling and construction, to the exacting

standards demanded by customers around

the world.

Adds Mike Gandy: “With the

introduction of our new Trinity Cell One at

Runcorn, which is now completed, we are

commencing the installation of the planned

Trinity Cell Two. The continued investment

in cleaning equipment from MecWash

ensures our customers get the highest quality

hydraulic valves to meet their stringent

cleanliness standards.”

Recent developments in parts-cleaning

technology could be seen at the MACH 2018

exhibition at the NEC earlier this year.

Turbex, for example, launched its ProLine 2

range of automated cleaning lines, which is

intended for high levels of precision cleaning

assisted by multi-frequency ultrasonics.

According to the company, cycle times can be

significantly shorter and there is the added

advantage that dissimilar components and

materials can be processed in the same tank.

Promoted also for the first time in the UK

was targeted cleaning, rinsing and drying

technology in a single-chamber machine.

Again available from Turbex, the machine

works alongside a global spray-flood action

coupled with controllable kinematics and

rotatable ultrasonic transducers. The

targeted/global tandem process is intended

for efficient and reliable removal of swarf, oil

and other contaminants from difficult-toreach

areas of components.

FINISHING, CLEANING AND DEGREASING

A CLEAN AND HAZARD-FREE WORKPLACE

JAMES TAYLOR, marketing director for EMEIA (Specialities) at Chicopee, explores the options available for surface and machine

cleaning in industrial premises.

The cleanliness of manufacturing premises is

vital for a number of reasons, not least to

protect the health and safety of employees,

maintain productivity and, ultimately,

preserve the quality of the finished product.

Clean equipment is an essential element in

the production, preparation and

manufacture of a huge range of commodities,

from food to electrical components. Failure to

clean equipment thoroughly can result in

cross-contamination and ultimately a shorter

lifecycle for the machinery itself. Particles of

dirt can be transferred into the equipment

mechanism, leading to breakdowns and

costly down time.

Electrical wiring or other components can

deteriorate, which in addition to having the

potential to cause a breakdown, may also put

the operator at risk. In the case of food

production, unhygienic equipment can result

in the closure of a premises.

Effective cleaning relies on good

workplace procedures, including moves to

prevent excessive dust, temperature control

and the implementation of a regular cleaning

and maintenance schedule. In addition, the

cleaning process itself must not damage

equipment. Some cleaning agents can leave a

potentially toxic residue so a good

understanding of the waste being removed

and how chemicals or water may react with

this and the machinery itself is vital.

Central to an efficient cleaning process is

the use of convenient and cost-effective

The DuraWipe range will lift dirt and

debris from machinery

cleaning materials that are strong enough to

withstand a rigorous cleaning routine. The

demand for single or limited use industrial

wipes has grown in recent years as premises

managers seek convenient, easy to use

products that are also economically

efficient.

Paper wipes may be cheap to purchase

but often lack the strength required for

heavy-duty tasks, disintegrating when they

come into contact with grease or oil. The

nature of many industrial tasks means that

solvents are required to remove stubborn dirt

and grease; often, paper wipes are unable to

cope with this and break down during use.

This in turn leads to high consumption, with

staff spending valuable time emptying bins.

The use of low-cost rags to clean

equipment can bring problems with quality

and consistency. Cleaning materials such as

rags and cut sheets are often delivered in

bulk, in large bags that are unsuitable to be

used at a workstation, resulting in workers

spending time fetching clean materials for

each task.Traditional woven cloths can be

used to remove dirt and grease; however,

these require laundering regularly, which

again adds unnecessary costs in terms of

both time and money.In addition, the threat

exists that small metal particles may remain

within the material even after washing.

The latest generation of industrial

cleaning materials is strong and durable

when wet or dry, with advanced

manufacturing processes employed to

produce materials that are highly absorbent

and durable yet retain a cloth-like feel.

Today’s industrial wipes are suitable for a

huge range of tasks, from degreasing

machinery to removing fingerprints from

chrome. For organisations with lean

manufacturing methods, or those looking to

create a more sustainable environment by

reducing water consumption, high quality

limited use wipes may prove an efficient and

cost-effective choice.

Costa machines have a unique patented LOCK system which

provides total flexibility, reduced downtime between changeover of

brushes and easier maintenance.

Depending on the edge radius required, vertical or orbital type

brushes can be used, either individually or in multiple groups to

ensure the required finish is achieved on the the top or the top and

bottom sides of the component in one pass.

arts up to more than 400mm thick, and more than 3000mm wide

can be processed and the polishing systems have a feeding speed of

up to 50mt/min. It makes these machines the ideal solution for

removal of slag, burrs and oxide even when the parts are warped or

uneven.

When polishing wide stainless steel sheets the quality of the

surface finish remains consistent until belt life end as the machines

automatically compensate for wear of the belts. This is possible

thanks to the machine’s inbuilt PLC which extends the life of the

consumables which further reduces processing costs.

All machines in the Costa range exceed CE and OSHA approval,

with noise reduction systems and special devices to protect operators

and also prevent parts from getting damaged. Not only do the

machines eliminate dangerous and time-consuming manual grinding

work but they also massively increase productivity and reduce

production costs.

HONE-ALL’S GUIDE

TO HONING

Honing is one of those subcontract services

which often suffers an unfairly bad reputation.

There are a number of reasons why honing

suffers and these vary greatly including: Cost,

Delivery and Quality.

So What Is Honing & What Can It Do For

You?

Internal honing is the removal of material

from a round bore using tools with abrasive

stones which expand under pressure to cut and

is used for the following purposes:-

1) To achieve tighter tolerances than can be

achieved with conventional machining methods or

tooling.

2) To improve Surface Finish to ensure

smooth fits with mating parts or reduce wear or

in some cases, to roughen a surface finish

depending on the application i.e. creating cross

hatch finishes for oil

retention.

3) To alter the size of

the bore when design

changes have been made

or requested. Hone-All

have built a large stock

and variety of gauging

over the years but they

say it is almost impossible

to cover every size.

Blind bores are

another reason for honing

getting an unfair

reputation, at times, state

Hone-All. Despite most honing specialists

making the limitations of honing tooling quite

clear to customers on their quotations and

stating that the tool cannot reach the full depth

of the bore, this information is often not picked

up by the customer on the quote and therefore

they sometimes feel that they have not

completed the part to drawing.

Another reason honing companies may

suffer can be due to a lack of knowledge by the

customer of the honing process.

One factor which may impact quality is

indeed, the operator. However, with over 40

years of experience within this field, Hone-All

state their engineers are highly skilled and fully

trained and that’s why they would always

recommend speaking to their honing

specialists to discuss requirements at the

earliest possible stage.

Hone-All have written a guide in the hope

that the information within it will not only

educate and raise awareness of the black art of

honing but also enable their customers to

understand the time frames, the skill, the

requirements and limitations of the honing

process. For further information or to receive a

copy of the guide please contact:

KEMET ADD FPI TO

RANGE

The perfect non-destructive-test (NDT)

solution for inspection of components,

Liquid Penetrant Testing, or Fluorescent

Penetrant Inspection (FPI), is commonly used

in the aerospace and medical industries.

Precision surface finishing leaders, Kemet,

now offer FPI systems with advanced

process control that ensures repeatability,

process safety and traceability of each batch

within the set parameters.Designed and built

by renowned ultrasonic cleaning machine

manufacturers, FinnSonic Oy, the systems

to both the aerospace and medical industries.

Kemet offer a range of standard systems as

well as the flexibility to combine automated

and manual operation to provide

streamlined, maintainable NDT inspection,

with integrated waste water handling and

extraction systems as options, to generate

cost savings on process chemicals, labour

and energy consumption.

Finnsonic have supplied fully automated

FULLY AUTOMATIC

DEGREASING AND

FINISHING OF

SMALL BULK PARTS

Still today typical mass finishing processes such

as deburring, edge breaking/radiusing,

smoothing & polishing, cleaning & degreasing,

etc., can be a highly labour intensive and costly

process. Traditionally using mechanised

barrels the work is strenuous, the equipment

and surrounding area dirty and separate drying

units are required, occupying considerable

valuable floor space that could be used for other

more profitable manufacturing activities. The

minimisation of manual parts handling, a better

control of the overall finishing process and

batch integrity, i.e. no mixing of different types

of parts, are just a few of the technical

requirements why many customers are

choosing the Rősler all-in-one integrated WTA

washing and drying system. This system was

specifically developed for part-on-part

processing where degreasing, deburring and

drying can all be carried out in a single machine.

The “wet” degreasing and finishing process,

with the addition of water and compound, and

the subsequent drying process take place in the

same machine. The various process stages can

be controlled with a PLC to ensure process

consistency with every batch. Besides a higher

degree of automation, less manual parts

handling, etc., the WTA system offers another

major advantage whereby it can be run in flowthrough

mode as well as with high water level

in the processing bowl. This reduces processing

times, yields cleaner parts, and improves their

cleanliness and finish.

The finished parts are dried with hot

air and without the addition of any

drying media to ensure that no

residual water stains remain on the

parts surface. The energy saving

hot air suction system results in

amazingly short drying times.

Even cup-shaped parts can be

dried quickly and free

of water stains.

WTA systems are

available as rotary

vibrators for larger

batches of parts as

well as centrifugal

disk finishing systems

for smaller, but shorter

cycle times to suit all

requirements. Both machine types allow the

complete unloading of a batch of finished parts

to take place either by tilting the work bowl or

by activating an unload gate in the bottom of

the work bowl.
