Automotive sector in Canada 2019: Fresh Start

by Noelle Stapinsky

Cautious optimism for growth prevails in Canada's automotive manufacturing sector

New precision measuring tool kit from Mitutoyo

Mitutoyo has released a new precision measurement tool kit with a magnetic stand and digimatic indicator set.

Tool cleaning and laser marking

Walter’s Helicheck Plus and Helicheck Pro machines from United Grinding North America now feature new modules for tool cleaning and laser marking. 

Threadforming with less torque

Walter’s new TC420 Supreme thread for universal use is an HSS-E-PM thread former with a high number of forming edges, produces high cutting speeds with up to 30 per cent less torque.

Control enhancements to VMC

Mazak Corp has added its Mazatrol SmoothG Control and its Smooth Technology software suite to its VTC-200C vertical machining centre.

Advantages of a through-coolant spindle

Scott and Matt of Haas demonstrate some of the advantages of the Haas TSC system by comparing traditional flood coolant and through-spindle coolant on the same drilling application.

Turning centre for boosting productivity

Mazak's Quick Turn-250MSY turning centre has been revamped with "productivity-enhancing" features such as new direct drive turret design, a higher torque main spindle, more powerful milling spindle, and the recently introduced Mazatrol SmoothG CNC control.

New electrode provides low temperature strength, toughness

Select-SAI Inc. introduces a superb all-position, flux cored, gas-shielded electrode that is specially developed to maintain tensile strength and high toughness at low temperature after long or repeated post-weld heat treatment.

Mobile press brake

Bystronic's new Xpert 80 mobile press brake is a larger version of the Xpert 40 and offers an increase in bending length and press capacity.

Heavyweight machining capabilities

The Annihilator from Quickmill. The rigid gantry design, the high speed axis drive system, the heavy duty spindle options, all allow for very fast processing times. The Annihilator is for those who need a lot more than regular performance, it's for those who need heavyweight machining capabilities.

Improved insert performance with gold coating technology

Walter USA has unveiled a new technology that it says promises to improve machining effectiveness dramatically. Tiger-tec Gold is the latest generation of its line of Tiger-tec and Tiger-tec silver coatings.

Parting-off techniques

CoroCut QD is a new generation of cutting tools from Sandvik Coromant for parting and grooving of larger diameter bars. The company says these new tools optimize cuts that require longer tool overhang.

Fanuc adds 5-axis to CNC training module

FANUC’s Machining Simulation for Workforce Development provides training for controls operation and part programming in a virtual environment.
