Improved TaeguTec Top-Mini benefits turning operations on small workpieces 04/06/2011

An upgraded Top-Mini from TaeguTec offers improved clamping forces for operations on small workpieces on Swiss-type automatic turning centres. The design allows inserts to be effectively clamped from the side, which enables the operator to index the insert without removing the toolholder from the lathe. This is particularly valuable when sliding head turning centres are using additional tool stations and add-ons that limit space in the work envelope.  Read More

Radan 2011 R2 allows users greater integration with their processes 04/06/2011

"As many new functions have been added to Radan in recent years, we're now starting to look at bundling all related functions together into processes, so that Radan users can get the most from the new features," Radan product manager Olaf Körner says. For example, nesting functions in Radan 2011 R2, and everything related to nesting, is contained in just one process. There is more control over specific parts and sheet sizes, to ensure the final nest takes the user's individual requirements. For example, in a list of 100 parts, maybe 60 aren't needed until tomorrow, so a new 'exclude from nesting function' allows the user to start with the other 40.  Read More

Trumpf automatic slag removal for flatbed laser machines 02/06/2011

The Trumpf TruTool TSC100 slat cleaner thoroughly removes accumulated slag resulting from stainless steel, mild steel or aluminium laser processing. Not only are the slats cleaned on the sides but also in the hard-to-reach spaces in between. The result is an outstandingly clean flatbed laser machine. Clean slats are important to the process stability of the laser cutting machine. If slag is allowed to build up, not only is the quality of the process compromised, but so too is the quality of the finished part.  Read More
