cincinnati load calcClick image to enlargeCincinnati Inc. has released a load calculator app that helps users figure out the press brake tonnage required to air bend a certain piece of metal.

The app, named CI Load Calc, is available for iOS and Android, and is compatible with all makes and models of press brakes and press brake tooling.

In metal fabrication, operators often calculate the air bend tonnage needed to form a part on a press brake.

Press brake operators select a material, thickness, bend length, then enter the vee die opening. The app automatically gives the inside bend radius and the minimum flange.

After entering the four parameters, users have their formability factor and required tonnage, either in metric or imperial.

The app saves previous entries and users can access that history at any time.

The free app is available now, both in the App Store and Google Play.

Multitasking lathe with modular platform

The new SwissDECO lathe from Tornos is available in four versions: SwissDECO G (gang version – showcased at IMTS), SwissDECO GA (gang version with A axis), SwissDECO T (turret version) and SwissDECO TB (turret version with B axis).

Machine combines lathe, vertical, horizontal machining operations

Okuma's Multus B300II is a one-saddle multi-tasking CNC lathe designed to reduce setup time and machining costs. This multitasking machine offers a variety of operations to improve machining efficiency while offering reliable accuracy and power to keep non-cutting time to a minimum.

Achieving tool surface finish as low as 0.16 Ra

Highly polished flutes and gash surfaces improve chip evacuation and aid tool performance. The smoother surface enables swarf (or chips) to exit more freely, preventing chip packing and material build up during machining. ANCA has addressed this goal by equipping its rigid tool and cutter grinding machines with ANCA Motion’s LinX linear motor technology to provide manufacturers a new, higher level of quality tool-making capability, says the company.

High performance carbide bur

PFERD Inc. has introduced Cast Cut, a new line of high performance carbide burs for work on cast iron. They are characterized by an extremely high stock removal rate, coupled with a smooth milling action that significantly reduces vibration and noise.
