A complex EN24 steel component will be machined on a Hurco VMX42HSRTi 5-axis machining centre supported by Autodesk CAM software and cutting tools from Tungaloy. Tungaloy’s latest DoFeed, DoTwistBall with the new HJ high-feed breaker, the TungRec, TungMeister and many more products from the Tungaloy portfolio will be highlighted.

Importantly, the Tungaloy Corporation has allowed Tungaloy UK to demonstrate TungForceFeed, a small diameter high feed indexable milling cutter with tool bodies from 8 to 16 mm. This product will not be launched to the world market until December, so this event marks the first time TungForceFeed has been seen or used outside of the R&D dept in Japan.

In addition to live machining demonstrations, the event will have a welcome address from Dr Syed Hasan, the Head of the School of Engineering at University of Wolverhampton, offer an opportunity to meet the project partners that include Autodesk, Hurco and Tungaloy UK, boast a presentation from Autodesk on the Future of British Manufacturing Initiative and, of course, an opportunity to meet university academics and students.

The event will demonstrate how the univerity’s relationships can be exploited to promote Industrial problem solving, upskilling, graduate recruitment and apprenticeships, as well as the research opportunities that will drive the next-generation of engineers and innovators.
