Guhring demonstrates technical expertise at MACH 2022

2 min read

MACH 2022 was a phenomenal success for cutting tool manufacturer Guhring with its stand being busy from the very start of the show to the point when the last visitors were leaving on Friday afternoon.

Firstly, Guhring demonstrated a complete range of products at MACH that included threading, turning, drilling and milling tools – many of which received their UK exhibition premiere at the show. The other reason the stand drew the crowds was due to the exceptional performance of the tools that were demonstrated ‘live’ on a Grob 5-axis machining centre.

With an wide-ranging milling portfolio, Guhring gave a MACH show debut to the impressive new RF100 Sharp Series of high-performance end mills that were put through their paces on the Grob machine. Designed to address the issue of machining soft, tough and high-alloyed materials that create an issue with swarf clearance, the new RF100 Sharp Series is Guhring’s sharpest solid carbide milling tool to date.

Alongside the Sharp was the Diver Series of end mills that Guhring recently extended for micromachining with the new RF100 Micro Diver. Another crowd-pleaser was the RF100 5-Speed and RF100 7-Speed solid carbide end mills. Developed for the machining tough materials, the RF100 5-Speed and RF100 7-Speed solid carbide end mills are part of the highly dynamic Guhring Trochoidal Cutting (GTC) series that made an impact with stand visitors at the show.

The drilling line from Guhring stood head and shoulders above its rivals. As a world-leading manufacturer in the drilling and reaming arena, Guhring had its holemaking ranges performing on the Grob machining centre at MACH. With many of its industry-leading drilling lines undertaking ‘live cutting’ demonstrations, it was the RT 100T solid carbide spiral flute deep-hole drills that captured the imagination of engineers at the show.

Guhring UK managing director Chris Weston said: “Before MACH, expectations may have been somewhat subdued due to the unpredictable Covid situation, but that dissipated on day one with a very high number of enquiries – and this continued to surge throughout the week to give us our busiest MACH week ever. The enquiries we received were well balanced across our portfolio of products.

"We had technical engineers giving demonstrations of our vending solutions all week whilst the Grob G550 5-axis machine provided live demos of our deep hole drilling line and the new Sharp end mills to name a few. We have always alluded to the performance of our industry-leading lines that can achieve cutting parameters beyond alternate lines. This is especially true of our deep hole drilling range – but it wasn’t until engineers watched it on the Grob machine that they believed it.”

“It was the first time for Guhring to have a machining centre on the MACH stand to demonstrate products, and it worked extremely well. We had a crowd around the machine all week, paying close attention to the jaw-dropping performance of our tools. We are also delighted to announce that our cooperation with Grob at MACH was just the first step in a long-term partnership that has now seen Guhring UK take the impressive 5-axis machine that straddled both stands at MACH straight to the Guhring technical centre in Birmingham.

"Arriving at Guhring UK immediately after the show, the machine will cement our relationship and enable us to provide comprehensive demonstrations of our product lines on an extremely capable 5-axis machining centre. It will also serve as a facility for Grob to invite its customers to undertake machining trials,” concludes Chris.

Guhring engineers were also busy at MACH discussing the scope of special tooling solutions that can be designed, developed, manufactured and trialled at the Guhring facility in Birmingham.
