A step-by-step look at how a massive gear is CNC machined.

Amazingly Versatile, Surgically Precise

Millstar's EIV5 provides a unique combination of radial grind, variable helix, variable pitch and radius preparation for maximum versatility and surgical precision.

CNC machines at work

Here's a lineup of CNC machining operations. We're not sure what all the parts are, but watching them take shape is a study in elegance.

Fully automated complex sheet metal folding

A RAS MiniBendCenter, among other machines, being operated robotically to fold complex shapes.

Completely sealed jaw quick-change chuck with constant clamping forces

If you want to make the production of turned parts efficient, you need low-maintenance and fail-safe precision clamping devices that can be quickly changed over and, if necessary, also automatically loaded.

Automated sheet metal loading

Prima Power's 15 Shelf Compact Loading System (Compact Tower): Material flow can be arranged in flexible ways to transfer parts directly to automatic bending, balance the different time requirements of bending and punching/shearing, to exit material from the system and to bring new material into it.The flexible and versatile buffering function ensures that optimum operation in terms of manufacturing cost and throughput time can always be chosen,whatever the manufacturing task at hand.

Thick plate welding

The MIG/MAG Narrow gap technology from Cloos Robotic Welding for welding thick-walled component parts. In comparison to conventional weld seam preparation, the weld seam volume can be reduced by about 60 per cent, according to the company, reducing welding time and providing a saving potential with regard to the filler material, shielding gas and power consumption. 

How shipping containers are made

This video from inside a Chinese factory shows the building of intermodal shipping containers.

Machining hardened steels

OSG's XOPRO WHO-Ni drill series can handle the heat when processing Nickel Alloy, Inconel 718 and other hardened steels.

Improved parting and grooving

Insight into Sandvik Coromant's new CoroCut QD parting off and grooving tool.
