Face milling with a long tool life

slika_1Mapal customers rely on the FaceMill-Diamond PCD face milling cutter for face milling work at high volumes, on unstable parts and in the HPC (high performance cutting) sector. With its solid steel tool body and the permanently brazed PCD cutting edges, it achieves top feed rates and material removal rates that are second to none.

New adjustable angle tooling unit for the pressroom

1Bilsing Automation has announced the availability new swivel unit tooling for use in the pressroom, a flexible solution to address the trend of reducing the number of operations in a press line by producing more parts via a single stamping.

Shredding, mixing and colouring of virgin and recycled material

slika_2Recycled material is usually added to virgin material after drying, since those materials have different drying times. Mixing can be done manually or with dosing devices. There exist dedicated systems for adding recycled material. The simplest and cheapest dosing device is a pneumatic switch, that subsequently adds virgin in recycled material in a predefined ratio.

ArianeGroup successfully tested a combustion chamber made completely with additive manufacturing

2ArianeGroup is a joint venture of Airbus and French group Safran. The company is composed by three divisions, space (orbital propulsion systems and equipment), defence and security. A complete upper stage engine prototype, which incorporates the latest propulsion technology and it is designed to validate innovative production technologies, materials and processes, such additive technologies, laser burning and use of cheap materials has been produced and tested.

Man, in the future your tissue will be made of nanostructured material

slika_3Researchers from Chalmers University of Technology in Götheborg has developed a new material similar to synthetic rubber with an unique combination of properties. This material is suitable for use in various medical devices as support or replacement of human tissue. A 3D-printed “nose” on the picture is an example, how this material can be used as a possible substitute for cartilage.

How to avoid expensive repairs and downtime?

3In the next issue of IRT3000 we will present frauds, that can happen in the field of hydraulic systems maintenance. If we are aware of all the traps and have the proper knowledge, we can protect ourselves from such events. First, we have to face the malfunction and exclude the most obvious reasons. Before we call an expert, we should check the most basic causes of a malfunction like damaged cables of electromagnetic valves, jammed coolers, damaged coupling on the pump, closed valve due to vibration, …
