care by reduction in hydraulic oil consumption. Providing improved deposit control of 89.2% for longer oil life and precision operations, Mobil DTE 20 Ultra Series also delivers superior wear protection to extend component life. Extensive testing shows that it comes with better water handling and filter rating. According to Eaton 35VQ25 Test – an industrial test recognized for hydraulicfluid qualification,the oil
provides >72% better wear protection. “Hydraulic systems operate under highpressure and high-output environment. One of the major challenges faced by industries, is that of performance, productivity and efficiency,” said Shankar Karnik, General Manager, Industrial Lubricants, ExxonMobil Lubricants Private Limited. “With Mobil DTE 20 Ultra Series, consumers now
have a new technology developed to deliver trusted performance and extended component life, with reduced maintenance costs and system wear.” Hydraulic systems need maintenance due to both oil and machine factors. As the oil oxidizes with time, deposits are formed causing replacement of both oil and filter. Moreover, often times even valves, pumps and other parts of the machinery wear with age wherein the damaged components require replacement. This maintenance can be reduced and made effortless by using Mobil DTE 20 Ultra as it plays a major role in slowing down equipment ageing and decrease maintenance efforts.

Across the world, business owners are increasingly faced with not just the rising costs of fuel, but global concerns about the environment and air quality. At ELGi, we’ve made a commitment to every customer across the 38
MACHINE TOOLS WORLD
globe - our compressors offer maximum energy efficiency and sustainable advantages from a total cost of ownership perspective” said Dr. Jairam Varadaraj, Managing Director, ELGi Equipments. The new range of Encapsulated (ENCAP/EN) screw air compressors address a customer’s varying air flow demands with high energy efficiency. The EN VFD optimizes air flow by varying the motor speed of the compressor according to air demand, thus saving energy costs unlike that of fixed speed compressors. The EN series models also come equipped with smart controllers that monitor, control and protect the compressor from failures by shutting down the compressor whenever necessary. The ELGi heat recovery system (HRS) helps companies
recover approximately 96% of heat generated during the compression process which can then be utilized for heating air (space) or water. This in turn eliminates additional equipment requirements to heat water or air, thereby becoming an energy saving device and contributing to a reduction in CO2 emissions. Speaking at the product launch, Dr. Jairam Varadaraj, Managing Director, ELGi Equipments said ‘’Improved energy efficiency begins with understanding the customer. At ELGi we’re committed to ensuring we right-size every customer for their compressed air requirements.

COVER STORY Q. In your opinion how can the Indian Machine Tool industry become globally competitive ? The volatile steel market and the difficulty to find experienced operators are driving manufacturers to improve the quality of their metal forming equipment, particularly looking for precision and automation. India must specialize in providing metal fabricators with equipment of the highest quality that is powerful, technologically advanced but above all precise. When the steel prices go up and the margins get smaller, precision is the solution. Machines will have to be designed to provide a return of investment based on the precision of the forming and elimination of metal waste combined with powerful technology that augments the productivity cycle. Q. What are the key technological trends that are driving machine tool industry? The markets will continue to increase the demand of metal formed products but due to the current geopolitical
MACHINE TOOLS WORLD
situation, the volatility will be high and will push the metal fabricators to be as flexible and as reactive as possible. The metal industry will attempt to standardize as much as possible with measures like Industry 4.0 in order to maximize the production capacity of each equipment, to apply energy saving measures and lobby/demand the governments for more tax reforms and incentives to stay competitive and improve the workforce development. Q. What is your future plans for Faccin Spa? Industry 4.0 has become more and more prevalent in the industry and a must for any manufacturer that wants to bring the best quality machines, advanced connectivity and analytics and people to work together in order to change the way of the day-to-day operations and to obtain a powerful business outcome. As a group, we have always been
developing leading technology to help manufacturers obtain the maximum from our machines and we see Industry 4.0 as a way to capitalize on the technology we already provide. Our machines are ready for Industry 4.0 thanks to SMART packages that offer features like Systems Diagnosis, Teleservice, Management Control, Drawing Imports, Rolling & Production Lot Statistics and Flexible Network Solutions between others, helping the manufacturers of today, face the challenges of tomorrow. Indeed, we already started thinking about Industry 5.0 as company attitude. Q. lastly is there any new products which will be launched by Faccin Spa in near future? Our Group has always been at the vanguard in terms of precision and automation of the forming process, Faccin being the first to offer a CNC for plate rolling machines, back in 1984.

Geometry and wear measurement of cutting tools
he geometry of a tool is the crucial factor for tool lifetime and machining results. Production and quality assurance need to make sure to continuously manufacture a defined geometry. In order to judge the quality of cutting tools it is necessary to measure their geometry and wear during their use. This allows taking measures to improve the quality and durability of the tools as well as to increase the machining speed. In the following we demonstrate how the 3D metrology device InfiniteFocus can be used for such complex geometry and wear measurements. Due to its special technology it is able to measure even very steep surface slopes and delivers highly accurate 3D data together with perfectly registered true color information. By using special algorithms the system is able to compare the threedimensional structure of the tools before and after their usage and to determine important parameters such as the total volume of worn and accumulated material.
MACHINE TOOLS WORLD
The three-dimensional measurement of cutting tools, drill bits and milling cutters is an important aspect of quality control in the industrial process, since the form and wear of cutting edges have a significant influence on the quality of machined parts. Among others the edge geometry influences the possible cutting speed as well as the lifetime of the tools. Since these tools often have a very complex geometry including steep flanks and undercuts, their 3D measurement is a big challenge for optical 3D metrology devices. The evaluation of 2D images is possible for simple measurements where no occlusions occur, however it is not possible for measurements where real 3D information is necessary. In the last years optical 3D measurement methods have become more and more popular in various fields. The 3D measurement of drill bits and cutting tools however is often hardly possible with optical devices due to their complex geometry and their steep surface flanks. White light interferometers e.g. only allow the measurement of flank angles up to about 30Â°, which typically is not enough for the evaluation of cutting tool radii. An optical measurement technology which is suitable for the measurement of steep edges is Focus-Variation [ISO 25178-6. This device fulfils on the one hand the requirement to measure steep flanks up to 87Â° and on the other hand it allows the measurement of quite large areas with high vertical resolution.
Edge Master X
The optical 3D measurement device based on Focus-Variation, is InfiniteFocus by Alicona. In order to perform 3D measurements the device vertically scans the specimen by the sensor while continuously acquiring data. By analyzing the variation of focus during the scanning process for each measurement a complete 3D model is obtained. In addition to the 3D data, the measurement device also delivers true colour information for each measurement position, which is perfectly registered to the height data. This colour information often enables the user to classify regions that have not been used, and those where wear has occurred. Additionally a repeatability measure is analytically estimated for each measurement point. This repeatability measure is an estimation of the standard deviation of the z-coordinate of the measurement point as it would occur in a measurement series. This
measure can be used for different investigations such as the estimation of the quality of the measurement points, the filtering of measurement points with bad repeatability, the detection of vibrations or other exterior influences during the measurement. In order to analyze the geometry of a cutting edge, a special software module is available that analyzes cutting edges on a surface profile based basis. Surface roughness can be can be either calculated according to the draft of the ISO standard 25178 [ISO 25178-2 in an area-based matter or on a profile based basis according to [ISO 4287, ISO 4288]. The knowledge of the surface roughness has a significant influence on the production since it influences among others how well the material can be chipped. Volume measurement is also important parameter to know the worn of the manufactured tools and used tools. To perform cost efficient quality assurance, crucial parameters such as radii and angles have to be measured
10.343 Profile Based Roughness
production integrated. Measurements need to be quick, easy and in a high resolution. Usually, tools are measured with a number of different measurement devices during different stages of production. With InfiniteFocus, a non destructive, high resolution 3D measurement is offered that covers the measurement of all necessary parameters. Clamping and overall usability of the systems is extremely user friendly whereas measurements are achieved very quickly. Process reliability and consequently the overall quality are raised significantly.
In a further step, measurements can be performed directly in the grinding machine which shows its inline capability. The use of InfiniteFocus enables fast and easy handling of production steps which leads to a more cost efficient production with continuous quality at fewer rejections. With our 3D measurement device InfiniteFocus you measure form and roughness of drills, mills, etc. with only one system. In R&D, InfiniteFocus is the only system that can measure the full geometry of a tool automatically and therefore most efficient. Meaningful surface analysis for maximizing surface state and consequently tool life-time can be performed with a highly accurate, simple to use and very cost efficient measurement device.

EMO Hannover 2019: Digital approaches to sustainable machining Industrial processes can either be digital or sustainable – at least that is the belief of many who have not yet given the issues involved the consideration they de-serve. But the VDMA Technology Forum at EMO Hannover will be proving the opposite: applied sensibly and judiciously, digitalisation can even increase sus-tainability. Four companies whose digital solutions are helping to make the pro-duction and use of tools more sustainable offer their insights.
or Konrad Keck, Sales Manager DACH of Benz GmbH Werkzeugsysteme in Haslach (near Offenburg), Smart Service is the key to preparing services and products for Industry 4.0 (IoT-ready). For Benz, Smart Service represents an in-tegrated service concept in which ever larger amounts of digital information (e.g. from sensors) are used for preventive service processing.
MACHINE TOOLS WORLD
Energy harvesting supplies sensors with power Sometimes the devil is in the technical detail: sensors often consume additional energy. Keck points out an alternative: “With rotating tools, the energy for the sen-sor system is obtained from energy harvesting, basically allowing battery solutions to be dispensed with.” Energy harvesting users “harvest” electrical energy from sources such as ambient temperature, vibrations or air currents to power mobile devicesor low-power electronics. However, the most sustainable aspect of “Smart Service” is that the tools last longer due to preventive maintenance intervals. In the future, when digitalisation renders products aware of their own condition, such parameters can be used as the basis
for control loops that increase the service life of the tools. In Hanover, the Haslach-based company will be demonstrating how digitalisation can affect applications in daily practice in the form of its newly developed rotating tool mag-azine Benz Hybrix and the LinA broaching system which is
EVENT PROFILE now IoT-ready. Daniel Meuris, Head of Digitalisation and Virtualisation at the machine tool manu-facturer Klingelnberg GmbH, Hückeswagen, will be presenting the company’s GearEngine platform for gear production at EMO Hannover 2019. This serves as a central collection point for production data and an interface between the produc-tion department and the management. The platform facilitates the deployment of software-based data services for Klingelnberg machine tool operators. Software tool raising tool efficiency Meuris believes that tool efficiency is the key to sustainable machining. One ex-ample is bevel gear production in which it was not previously possible to assess efficiency levels due to the special tools involved and the lack of data. Klingeln-berg’s new SmartTooling system can identify tools and fixtures for bevel gear mill-ing machines using Data Matrix codes and manage them centrally in a database. Meuris: “The means of production are described to any required level of precision as digital twins in a central database. Production data is added to this database during and after the gear cutting.”Klingelnberg will be demonstrating how this works in practice in Hanover by showing actual operation on a machine.

nology Development department of the Tools and Parts business unit of Blomberg-based Phoenix Contact GmbH & Co. KG will be explaining how production can be optimised using tool data at the Technology Forum of EMO Hannover. The connection and automation technology manufacturer networks its injection moulding tools with the aid of RFID-based data acquisi-tion and optical markers. “All manufacturing and production information is availa-ble at all times,” Rohde explains. “The required data is made available to employ-ees and individual users in the form of visualisation boards or through the use of augmented reality. This helps reduce any mistakes due to incorrect interpretation and keep consequential errors to a minimum, thus contributing to sustainability in production.” Measurement technology supports digital transformation The digitalisation of industry is bringing measurement technology ever closer to and into production, as Prof. Heiko Wenzel-Schinzer, Managing Director and Chief Digital Officer of Wenzel Group GmbH & Co. KG in Wiesthal has observed: “We can take more and faster measurements with optical solutions, 5-axis meas-uring heads and special measuring machines, and give direct feedback to the processing machines via closed control loops.” However, when measurement technology moves into production, it is crucial that it more or less eliminates downtimes. The measurement technology manufacturer offers additional solu-tions which are designed to detect and correct any problems on the machines at a very early stage. This extends the service life of the production equipment and makes it more sustainable. Wenzel’s measuring machines are also designed for extremely long

MACHINE TOOLS WORLD
use of robotic welding is the need of the hour as we strive towards becoming a world-class exporter of engineering products. Robotic solutions offer the much-needed skill and repeatability to critical jobs on mass manufacturing lines which makes them absolutely vital in this age of consumerism. IOT, AI, and ANN are being put to good use to help create impeccable ‘first time right’ welding process planning and the same is slowly but surely finding takers in India. Developing import
substitutes for welding consumables is our biggest challenge as this will define India’s path towards being a top-quality manufacturer to the rest of theworld. Q. Have you come up with any pathbreaking technology or customized solution for this industry? Auto- Exhaust applications The use of stainless steels in automobiles started when automobiles came to be equipped with 3- way catalytic converters to meet intensifying regulations over exhaust gas emissions. The requirement to have longer service life accelerated the switchover from hot dip aluminized carbon steel to stainless steel in this application. Today, stainless steel is used in almost all exhaust system parts from the cylinder head gasket to the tail pipe. The consumption of stainless steel in the exhaust system per passenger car varies from model to model but averages about 15kg per car. The stainless-steel consumption is expected to increase in the exhaust system of diesel-powered automobiles, mainly trucks, to meet the growing social demand for stricter exhaust gas emission regulations. Exhaust system materials are exposed to a variety of harsh conditions and must be resistant

to such degradation mechanisms as high temperature oxidation, condensate and salt corrosion, elevated temperature mechanical failure, stress corrosion cracking, and inter-granular corrosion. The exhaust gas emitted from automobiles is one cause of air pollution, and various efforts have been made to prevent this problem. One of the preventive measures is the system shown in the figure. The components downstream from the muffler of an exhaust system must have sufficient corrosion resistance to withstand the internal attack of condensed water containing these corrosive ions and external attack of these salts. The materials mainly used for these components are low-carbon ferritic stainless steel incorporating not less than 11% chromium. The components nearer to the engine in front of the muffler need high oxidation resistance, because they are heated to about 773K (500) during operation. The
exhaust manifold, which is heated to the highest temperature, must possess both high-temperature strength and resistance to thermal fatigue. High-chromium stainless steel is now used mainly for these upstream components. As a result, the life of the exhaust system has been substantially extended. Stabilized ferritic stainless steels represent the best cost / benefit solution for exhaust system components: it gives designers optimal combinations that work both in elevated temperatures and complex corrosive environments. The exhaust system components are manifold: close coupled and under-body catalytic converters, flexible bellow, muffler, resonator, connecting pipes, flanges, and tailpipe. The part of the exhaust system containing the manifold, converter and the flex joint is named as hot end since this part of the system is relativelyhot due to the hot exhaust gas passing through these components. The part consists of intermediate pipe, resonator and the muffler is named as cold end since the gas tends to cool down from the exit of the flex tube. The temperature of the hot end of the gasoline operated vehicle can be as high as 1050°C while the highest temperature of the cold end is about 650°C. There are benefits of Nb regarding oxidation resistance at high temperatures.
Stainless Steel and Carbon Steel plasma cutting systems:
MACHINE TOOLS WORLD
It has been demonstrated that Nb containing ferritic grades have better high temperature performance when compared to Ti single-stabilized or austenitic grades. This is because Nb forms a thin, homogeneous and adherent oxide layer in the surface of the steel, avoiding spalling and re-oxidation of the material during the exhaust system thermal cycling (the typical on/off operation of the car’s engine). It also results in lower loss of material which can be translated into higher life cycles of the component, meaning a longer life, reduced frequency of replacement and long term cost savings. Study on metal loss of different stainless steels at 950°C shows that with increase in Nb content, higher temperature oxidation resistance improves as Nb forms less porous and more adherent oxides which results in less spalling and less reoxidation.

Dynamic Stock-Aware Toolpath ESPRIT’s FreeForm milling cycles are dynamically optimized based on the real-time state of the stock, cutting tool, tool holder, workpiece setup, and machine tool, resulting in minimizing repositioning, eliminating air cutting, and providing collision-free machining. This allows for programs with shorter cycle times that are safe to run on the machine. Simulation and Verification See exactly what will happen at the machine before a single chip is ever cut. View the entire machining environment, including stock materials, fixtures, and clamps in dynamic, solid-shaded graphics. All the kinematic action of the machine
is displayed in real time, providing an incredibly accurate verification of the entire machining process. Using ESPRIT’s built-in part inspection, the original “as-designed” part can be compared to the “as-machined” workpiece to ensure part accuracy. Adaptive High-Speed Machining High-speed machining (HSM) functionality is built into all of ESPRIT’s FreeForm machining cycles for shorter cycle times and longer tool life. The FreeForm cycles provide for the capacity to cut hardened materials in minimal time by utilizing the smooth, continuous movements so critical in 3D HSM.
High-Performance Roughing ESPRIT’s roughing cycles will machine workpieces down to a near net shape using the highest possible material removal rates, resulting in the shortest cycle times. ESPRIT’s patented ProfitMilling® allows for the removal of more material in less time by maintaining a consistent cutter load, consistent tool engagement angle, chip load, lateral cutter force, and machine acceleration throughout the machining process to achieve optimal results. Prefinishing Following roughing, ESPRIT has a variety of prefinishing cycles available to ensure the varying surfaces of
the workpiece all have the exact required stock allowance. As a result, the finishing tool(s) have a constant volume of material to remove, which results in maximizing tool life and optimal surface finishes. Finishing With the idea of superior surface finish in mind, the ability to select from a wide range of ESPRIT finishing strategies guarantees that a suitable strategy will be found for any surface. Select from nine different finishing cycles to machine the workpiece — use one cycle for finishing the entire part or define containment boundaries to machine zones differently using the most appropriate cutting styles for each. Remachining Maximize part quality and minimize bench work by remachining areas where the nose radius of the finish cutter could not follow the surface. ESPRIT’s remachining cycles automatically calculate where material remains from larger cutters and creates toolpaths for a smaller cutter to finish just these areas. Remove material in tight places without the risk of tool breakage with strategies for vertical corners, horizontal corners, and pencil tracing. For more information, Website: www.espritcam.com

Enhancing Tube Mill Performance with IPOL Jogesh Sharma â€“ Head Industrial Lubricants, GP Petroleums Ltd, IPOL
Challenges in Tube Mill How to stop rusting of the tube immediately after forming? How do we get the thin & glossy film as per end user requirements? How do I reduce the per tonnage consumption of rust preventive? How can we increase the life of coolant sump life? How do I get the best rust prevention for the finish tubes?
eing the largest supplier & having dealt with many Tube mill manufacturers we have developed enough Technical expertise to offer the perfect solution in Lubrication & protective products required in Tube mill application. Before going in the details let us first understand as what ERW pipe is & what the manufacturing process is. What is ERW Pipe & how it is manufactured? The steel pipe is produced from two basic forms of steel, the round billet & the slab. A billet gives seamless pipes. Slabs are re-heated & processed into Coils which are further used to
produce steel pipes by Fusion weld, electric resistance weld, double submerged arc weld. Here we will discuss about the significance of lubricants & rust preventives requirement in ERW
pipe manufacturing. The process of electric resistance welded (ERW) pipe begins as a coiled plate of steel with appropriate thickness & specific width to form pipe of required specification. The steel coil is passed through a series of rollers gradually giving cylindrical shape & the edges are welded together to form tube. For successful manufacturing of ERW pipe appropriate soluble cutting oil & rust preventives plays a major role, which is being elaborated below. Role of soluble cutting oil All tube mills have large emulsion oil tanks ranging from 10000 to 60000 Ltrs from which emulsion is supplied to various tube mills to facilitate the tube forming operation. Forming, welding & cutting operations are conducted while manufacturing of
MACHINE TOOLS WORLD
TECH TRENDS inability of the coolant to provide the temporary rusting are sometime maintaining the emulsion tank at very low concentration, salt built-up in the emulsion tank, accumulation of the tramp oil in emulsion tank. In order to avoid this soluble oil concentrated emulsion should be added in main tank at regular frequency & not in a long gap, also the constant check of the salt deposition of the emulsion is must.
preparation of tube surface for the rust preventive application. Some of the practices for removal of soluble oil before application of rust preventive is given below, 1. Immediately after production, tubes should kept on ramp to allow the draining of the emulsion. 2. While moving the tubes from the ramp compressed air can be applied from one end for removal of emulsion from the tube. 3. While transferring the tube bundles
the tube where very high temperature is generated and cooling becomes inevitable which calls for a stable cooling oil. Major requirement for the coolants are listed below, 1. To offer temporary rust prevention. 2. It should have good bio stability. 3. Coolant should have good tramp oil rejection capability. How can we increase the sump life of cutting coolant tank? • Maintenance of correct concentration of emulsion • Do not allow the pH to go down below the optimum level. • Regular monitoring of hardness & chloride of the emulsion indicates the inside of the emulsion condition for taking the appropriate action in time. Higher chloride presence in emulsion creates conducive environment for the formation of rust, therefore chloride level should be as low as possible. • It is also advised to keep a constant watch on microbiological growth & tramp oil mixing in the tank.
Why IPOL Aqua Cut 125 is the best coolant for the tube mill. This is formulated & developed at IPOL’s most advanced R&D centre near Mumbai where constant testing is carried out to improve the rust prevention characteristics & biostability. Specific ingredients are used in the product to fortify the quality of product & sustain the constant pH which eventually helps in maintaining the long sump life in Tube mill. IPOL Aqua Cut 125 is most widely used soluble cutting oil, covering most of the major tube Industries across the country. How do we get rid of the emulsion from the tubes before RP application? Once tubes are produced it is very essential that every effort should be made for removal of the emulsion from the tubes as it affects in
to RP tank, tilting of bundle in air can help in draining of the emulsion.
Rust preventives – The most critical product In case of precision tubes after the tube forming is completed immediately tubes are bundled & dipped in rust preventive tanks of capacity 10-15 KL. All tubes when produced have the coating of the emulsion oil on outside as well as inside the tube. When these tube bundles are dipped in rust preventive tanks, cutting oil emulsion gets mixed up with the rust preventives & if the emulsion remains with the rust preventives it can be a potential danger of rusting of the tubes. Therefore it is extremely important that the rust preventive used in tank should have good water dewatering quality and it should form thinnest possible film as end users prefer less

Making Tracks: New Cutting Tools for the Railway Sector including crossover, switch diamond, and three-way switch.
he railway industry is one of the main consumers of cutting tools and ISCAR is increasing its role as a supplier of complex projects for this key sector that incorporate essential elements to fulfil the need for layout solutions, efficient productivity, and a reduction in machining time and costs â€“ all demanding a large variety of both standard and tailor-made solutions. Machining railway parts represents a challenge for manufacturers and cutting tool producers alike, who must contend with a host of constraints - such as the relatively large size workpieces, complex structures, and complicated final machined profile - along with the need to remove a large volume of material, ensure predictable tool life, and avoid high maintenance costs. When selecting the correct tools and inserts for each job, certain parameters need to be taken into
MACHINE TOOLS WORLD
consideration, for example the type of material to be machined, the condition of the part, the available machine tool, its condition and power characteristics, clamping fixtures etc. A central factor in optimal tool development is the creation of a virtual manufacturing environment that simulates machining processes and cutting conditions, to ensure that the tools produced will overcome material and manufacturing limitations and that they will provide the best solutions to the specific needs of railway parts producers. As an example of this dynamic, it is useful to consider how new tools and processes are adapted to machine bogie components and switchers. The bogie frame is utilized in each of the three main categories in the railway sector: urban transit rail, passenger rail, and freight rail. The switcher is one of the most common parts produced, with typical switchers
Rotating tools Many operations for railway part machining involve rotating tools, especially for milling and drilling functions. In milling, due to the high volume of removed material, conical and profile indexable extended flute cutters are used. The cutters with tangentially clamped inserts feature better possibilities for improving tool strength and ensuring higher tooth density that result in increased productivity. In many cases milling the railway parts requires long-reach tools with different overhang. Modular shell mill design configuration offers a flexible and economical alternative to large-size extended flute cutters with integral body (integral-type design). T490 â€“ A modular solution Extended flute shell mills The combinations of the base units and extensions ensure a variety of extended flute shell mills with different cutting lengths. The modular extended flute assembly possesses another advantage in improving operations. As the first-row inserts in extended flute cutters, which are located near a cutter face, are
TECH TRENDS involved not only in side milling but also in face milling, they experience harder loading and their wear is more intense compared with the other inserts of the cutter. In integral-type cutters, a sudden breakage of a firstrow insert can cause serious damage of the cutter and even render it inoperable. In the modular assembly, each damaged insert can be replaced individually, which enables efficient operation and extended tool life. All the new cutters are designed with coolant through to extend tool life and improve chip evacuation in problematic areas such as slotting and deep shouldering. This is especially valuable for tangential clamping as the special profile extended flute cutters ensure a reduction in machining time. In some cases, the profile in the switcher can be machined in one single pass and in other cases it is necessary to divide the machining into several passes to produce the right profile and diameter with the correct dimensions. Face milling The newly introduced T890 line represents a range of face mill cutters for rough and semi finish machining that carry tangentially clamped inserts with 8 cutting edges, intended for facing and shouldering operations in the switchers and bogie frames. The inserts feature different cutting geometry, designed
for machining various engineering materials. FFQ4 for high feed machining A new family of high feed mills that carry square single-sided inserts with 4 cutting edges, the FFQ4, is designed to reduce cutting forces when used on low power machines or long overhang applications. The cutters are available in different design configurations: shell mill in 40 up to 100 mm diameters, and end mills and replaceable milling heads in smaller diameters. The cutters are intended for roughing operations, such as machining plane surfaces, cavities and pockets, including ramping by line and helix. Drilling
Old traditional bridge-type machines sometimes require high overhang and the drills often need to operate in conditions of reduced rigidity. The new SUMOCHAM drills with exchangeable drill heads, cylindrical shank and internal coolant holes enable high feed drilling, high accuracy and good surface finish. Exchangeable ICP-
type drill heads are recommended for carbon and alloy steel (ISO P material group), commonly used in producing railway components, and have already received good marks in drilling operations in producing bogie frames. Combined drills enable users to perform drilling and chamfering operations with the use of the same tool. Manufactured in different diameters, cutting depths and overhangs, the design of the drills facilitates an increase in cutting range conditions and a reduction both in cycle time, as well as in the number of drills involved in the process. The railway industry is a large consumer of special (tailor-made) drills. In many cases applying special drills ensures minimizing tool overhang, increasing durability of a drill body and utilizing a single tool for several operations. ISCAR proposes a variety of special drill solutions for this sector, in particular for connections between the rails and the switchers, which result in significant reductions in machining costs. The railway sectorâ€™s distinctive characteristics and demands impact on cutting tool development in many ways. ISCAR has responded accordingly by designing innovative, productive and reliable solutions intended for heavy-duty applications, that have already been adopted with enthusiasm by manufacturers to improve their processes.

Miniature infrared camera performs thermo imaging in VGA resolution
The world’s smallest VGA infrared camera, the thermoIMAGER TIM 640 from Micro-Epsilon, performs radiometric video recording at a resolu-tion of 640x480 pixels, detecting even the smallest of thermal defects reliably.
emperature measurement is used frequently in industrial environments. Wherever temperature is a critical process variable, it is good practice to ap-ply IR sensors, whether they are used for defect detection of injection mould-ed plastic components, for monitoring components in the electronics industry, for temperature measurements in the food industry or even for the hot rolling of metal sheets. Non-contact temperature sensors are ideal due to their fast mode of operation and because they exert no influence on the measurement object. IR sensors and cameras for process automation enable continuous monitoring of temperature. Intelligent, digital systems allow the customer to remotely programme the sensors, as well as online transmission and record-ing of measured data. Thermal imaging cameras detect and measure the temperature on a surface.
MACHINE TOOLS WORLD
Micro-Epsilon offers its new miniature high-resolution infrared camera, the thermoIMAGER TIM 640. Due to its high geometrical resolution and its high thermal sensitivity, the infrared camera is ideal for precision measurement tasks. The camera is connected via a USB interface, which also supplies the power. The thermoIMAGER TIM 640 infrared camera is the smallest VGAresolution thermal imaging camera in the world, providing pin-sharp thermal images in real time due to its
optical resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. With di-mensions of 46x56x90mm and weighing just 320g (incl. optics), the ther-moIMAGER TIM 640 is one of the most compact thermal imaging cameras available on the market. The new camera covers the spectral range from 7.5 to 13 µm. A process interface with analogue and digital I/O simplifies process integration. The scope of supply includes the TIM Connect evaluation soft-ware. The temperature range is from -20°C to +900°C, and a thermal sensi-tivity of 75 mK.
TECH TRENDS Measuring principle Infrared radiation is emitted from all bodies whose temperatures are above absolute zero. The infrared sensor captures the emitted radiation and deflects this onto one or more detectors. The energy of the infrared radiation is con-verted into electrical signals in the detector, which are then converted into temperature values based on the calibration of the sensor and the specified emissivity. Based on this evaluation, the measured temperature can be shown on a display, output as an analogue signal or displayed on a PC via a digital output. Therefore, fast and reliable temperature measurements of moving, very hot or difficult-to-access objects are possible. While a conventional temperature sensor or probe can influence the temperature of the measurement object and the product itself can under certain circumstances become damaged or soiled, the noncontact method always ensures precise measurements. Features The thermoIMAGER TIM 640 thermal imaging camera offers a variety of features. Using automatic hot spot detection, objects can be examined ther-mally and hot or cold locations (hot or cold spots) can be found automatically. An industrial process interface with 3 input/outputs and an integrated watch-dog feature simplify process integration. This watchdog protects the meas-urement process from interference by using intelligent self-monitoring. The thermoIMAGER TIM 640 is protected to IP67, which makes it particularly suitable for process monitoring in automation systems and in harsh ambient operating conditions. The TIM Connect evaluation software offers numerous possibilities for automatic process and quality control, e.g. individual setting of process-dependent
MACHINE TOOLS WORLD
alarm thresholds, line scan features for monitoring of processes with moving objects, definition of visual or acoustic alarms, and analogue data output. Temperature distributions of surfaces can be captured accurately at millisecond intervals. Applications Outstanding features such as high resolution, compactness, and userfriendly, simplified integration make the thermoIMAGER TIM 640 VGA infra-red camera suitable for applications in quality control, process monitoring and for analysing electronic microcomponents in almost every industrial sector. Industry-specific software enables the monitoring of very small components during production (inline thermography), especially in plastics injection mould-ing processes. In this kind of quality control, thermography complements the human eye â€“ it detects and visualises the infrared radiation emanating from the measurement object. In injection moulding, temperature distribution pro-vides a global quality statement about incorrect temperature control of work-pieces: tool malfunction, visible geometry errors and hidden defects, such as material
defects, can all be detected. For every field of application, the re-spectively suitable model is always available as Micro-Epsilon offers different performance classes. In particular, using the new thermoIMAGER TIM 640 enables the identification of the smallest of defects in the mmÂ˛ range. Micro-Epsilon offers a thermography-based system as a turnkey solution (software and hardware) for inline quality control of injection moulding machines. The camera uses the thermal radiation from the workpiece to detect visual faults, as well as hidden material defects. The operating software visualises the workpiece and compares it to an infrared reference image. The system ena-bles the control and automatic sorting of defective parts. The system also en-sures fast, secure machine changeovers, as any newly produced parts are assessed immediately after changing the mould tools. This continuous quality control is particularly valuable to automotive suppliers, for whom the value of injection-moulded parts increases by several hundred per cent during this process.

Belt, rack and pinion or screw drives: Three options for different applications INTRODUCTION Linear actuators are mainly moved with belt, rack and pinion, or screw drives. Each of these systems has features that make them suitable for specific applications. Rollon, the international Group with a direct branch in Bangalore, has a broad and extremely varied range of axis solutions, which include different models of actuators for each of the drives mentioned above. Let’s look more closely at three different cases, and together, we will define the different needs and assess the correct choices for each application. The correct actuator defined by the peculiarities of the application allows us to maximize results and reduce costs.
CASE 1 - High Performance Packaging Systems Productivity, performance and safety: in the packaging sector, speed is fundamental and reducing cycle times translates directly into an economic advantage, while component reliability translates into reduced maintenance costs and increased productivity. To obtain high performance and production rates on discreetly long strokes, choosing one of the belt solutions would be spot on. Belt solutions allow high speed accelerations on distances as long as 10-12 m strokes. At the same time, load capacities are high: an X-Y-Z portal built with a belt drive solution can manage loads in the range of 150/200 kg. The absence of lubrication on the belt, unlike
the other two solutions, involves less maintenance and avoids costly “machine downtime”. The choice of a different type of actuator would not guarantee the same results: for example, a screw system would be too slow and would not be able to handle such long strokes. For packaging applications, Rollon has created the Plus System, a high performance product family of extremely robust linear actuators in extruded aluminum with a high level of protection of sliding and drive systems; and the Smart System linear actuator product family, which features simplified construction that successfully combines performance and competitiveness. Both product families are driven with toothed belt systems, they use linear rails with recirculating balls, and they reach accelerations of up to 50 m/s2 and maximum sliding speeds of 5 m/s. Both of these product families also offer dedicated solutions for vertical applications on the Z axis. CASE 2 - Pick & Place systems with long strokes Our second case involves large portals for pick and place systems, such as

Rollon is a global provider of linear motion solutions for several industrial sectors, such as: industrial machines, railway, automation, packaging and logistics, aerospace.
TECH TRENDS those that move metal sheets for the appliance industry or various types of production lines. Load capacities are crucial aspects of these systems, along with the rigidity of the system and the possibility of moving several vertical axes independently along Y axes and strokes possibly longer than 30 m. A belt solution would be limited in this case. Since belts are made of polyurethane, when we assess applications, we must consider elastic deformation rates with the resulting loss of rigidity in the system, and the reduction in precision as the stroke becomes longer. A belt system also usually has a single motor that uses a motor head to drive the belt and move the different carriages and their respective vertical axes in perfect synchronization. A Y axis moved with a rack and pinion drive would, instead, maintain its rigidity along potentially infinite strokes and offer the option of moving each carriage independently. For these reasons, a rack and pinion drive would be the best choice for these large portals, especially on the Y axis. The series of actuators in the Tecline family by Rollon mounts induction hardened steel racks with inclined teeth, and rails with recirculating ball bearings or prismatic rails with bearings depending on the application. They also have extruded aluminum profiles with different sized sections, up to 360 mm. Able to handle loads up to 1000 kg, these systems can easily be
MACHINE TOOLS WORLD
configured with actuators from the Modline family (these are belt driven) to create portals. CASE 3 - Assembly systems for semi-conductors Precision is undoubtedly the main feature for a system used to assemble small parts, such as in the semiconductor industry. Precision is necessary in terms of positioning and repeatability, to allow the assembly system to be efficient and produce high quality over time. Moreover, when speaking of precision in the semi-conductor industry, the level must be extreme (two-place decimal tolerance). The ideal choice for this solution would be the an axis with a screw drive unit. The Precision System product family by Rollon includes several models of linear tables for translating with great precision. These systems are built with anodized extruded aluminum profiles and rails with recirculating ball bearings, and they are driven with screw units with recirculating ball bearings, which can achieve a level of precision of 10 µ with regard to positioning and ±5 µ with regard to repeatability.
All mounting and reference surfaces of higher performance models are finished. Needless to say, this level of precision is impossible to reach with any belt or rack and pinion drive system.

Threading with maximum productivity & process reliability Walter AG is releasing the new TC620 Supreme thread milling cutter in diameters up to M20
Walter TC620 Supreme thread milling cutter
igh cutting pressure and tool deflection are the greatest challenges when it comes to thread milling. This results in restricted cutting parameters, necessary cutting passes and short tool lives or even tool breakage. With the TC620 Supreme universal thread milling cutter, tool wear is drastically reduced thanks to minimal cutting forces and the resulting high feeds per tooth. The multi-row concept not only reduces the machining time and wear, but also improves process reliability and handling – even when used with more demanding materials such as stainless steels
MACHINE TOOLS WORLD
or Inconel 718. Reliable chip evacuation, thanks to internal coolant, and simple handling of the TC620 Supreme guarantee maximum process reliability. Radius corrections are seldom necessary, and when they are required, it is often only once competitor tools have already reached the end of their tool life. Walter is launching the TC620 Supreme for thread depths of 2 and 2.5 × DN in the dimension range from M4 to M20 as well as UNC 8 to UNC ¾.

The Process of Phosphating Some FAQs by Gala Precision Technical Team Q. What Is the phosphating Process? Phosphating is the process of converting a steel surface to iron phosphate. This is mostly used as a pretreatment method in conjunction with another method of corrosion protection. A layer of phosphate coating typically includes iron, zinc or manganese crystals. Phosphating is a chemical process for treating the surface of steel, where barely soluble metalphosphate layers are formed on the base material. The layers created are porous, absorbent and suitable as a conversion layer for subsequent powder coating without further treatment. Q. Why is phosphating done? The process of Phosphate coating is employed for the purpose of pretreatment prior to coating or painting, increasing corrosion protection and improving friction properties of sliding components. Metal coating offers both zinc
Galaâ€™s Phosphating Plant
phosphate and manganese phosphate coating. Manganese phosphate coating is applied when wear resistance and anti-galling properties are required. Manganese phosphate also possesses the ability to retain oil, which further improves anti-friction properties and imparts corrosion resistance to the coated parts. Zinc and manganese coatings are used to help break in components subject to wear and help prevent galling. Most phosphate coatings serve as a surface preparation for further coating and/or painting, a function it performs effectively with excellent adhesion and electric isolation. Q. Why is phosphating done before powder coating? The process of phosphating aluminum and steel parts is typically
MACHINE TOOLS WORLD
listed as a conversion coating because the process involves metal removal as part of the reaction. However, it is not like anodizing or black oxide in that the phosphate coating is actually a precipitation reaction. Q. How many types of phosphating are there? 3 Types of Phosphating. Phosphating is a conversion coating applied to Steel and Iron components. In its basic form, the process involves immersing a component in a dilute solution, which converts the surface of the metal into a layer of microscopic Phosphate Crystals. Q. How does phosphate prevent corrosion? Corrosion resistance and resistance to detergents are also higher when compared to Zinc Phosphate.
Appearance is gray. Manganese Phosphate: Used primarily on friction and bearing surfaces to prevent metal-to-metal contact and reduce wear. This coating is also used as a base for dry film lubricants. The following is a typical phosphating procedure: Cleaning the surface, Rinsing, Surface activation, Phosphating, Rinsing, Neutralizing rinse (optional), and Drying. Q. What are the main applications of phosphating? The main applications of phosphating are: • Corrosion protection in conjunction with organic coatings, such as paints and polymer films • Facilitation of cold-forming processes, such as wire drawing and tube drawing, or deep drawing • Corrosion protection in conjunction with oils and waxes • Corrosion protection with no subsequent treatment • Improving anti-friction properties, such as break-in, wear resistance, anti-galling and coefficient of friction • Providing strong adhesion bonding for subsequent painting or other organic coating Q. What are the highlights and salient features of Gala’s Phosphating Plants? The phosphating process comprises

The evolution of milling tool, hard & PM steel up to 67 HRC-PEACOCKZecha, India The tried-and-tested PEACOCK mill cutters from ZECHA Precision Tools Limited are the go-to tools for achieving fine contours in the hsc processing of highly alloyed and hardened steel up to 67 HRS. They effortlessly ensure precision, stability and smooth surfaces in different areas of application, particularly in mould making. A new family member, the 599 series, offers additional support for the mill cutters 581P, 583P and 597P.
Series 599 as ball and torus mill cutter with 2 or 4 flutes
PEACOCK welcomes a new member to the family. The new mill cutter series offers ideal machining preconditions for a vast number of materials, material hardness values and alloying components such as, for example, powder metallurgical steels, tungsten copper, nickel-chromium alloys and cobalt chromium. Its special tool properties make the new family member eminently suitable both for finishing as well as roughing and its flexible and versatile properties can find efficient application in mould and tool making, the automotive and aerospace industries, light
MACHINE TOOLS WORLD
engineering as well as in medical technology. The PEACOCK expansion contains ball and torus mill cutters with two or four flutes that will be gradually taking over the hard machining role from the well-established 581H and 583H lines in Zechaâ€™s comprehensive tool range. The two-flute ball cutters are available in diameters 0.2 mm - 6.0 mm, whereas the four-flute variants in the 599 series come in selected dimensions with a diameter ranging from 3.0 mm to 6.0 mm. The torus mill cutters are available with two flutes in diameters 0.2 mm - 0.8 mm.
If the machine operator wants to turn to a four-flute torus mill cutter, he can choose between diameters from 1.0 mm to 6.0 mm. Irrespective of whether two or four flutes, torus or ball cutter - all boast precise cutting performance down to the core. Robust tool despite high stress The adaptation of the microgeometry combined with a new geometric design created by the internal development department produces optimum results. The special groove geometry of the mill cutters reduces forces and friction. Thanks to the shaft,
geometry - no sharp edges and corners - greater stability and milling depths are possible. The stresses occasioned by high temperatures during robust machining can be avoided almost completely due to the easy cutting construction and the high-end coating technology. The chips are quickly removed with the aid of the smoothly polished chipping spaces and the process temperature can be very well controlled. The 599 series mill cutters can also be used for machining of high wear-resistant super alloys containing chromium by means of KSS emulsions, as they are both suitable for dry and wet processing. They also achieve
very good results regarding surface quality. High performance cutters brave high loading Mangesh Awate, Sales Manager at Zecha India: â€œIn order to be capable of reliably mastering the hard processing of materials up to HRC 67 it is necessary to run the tools at high feed and cutting speeds. The HSC cutters save a great deal of machining time and produce superb surface qualities. Nevertheless, this very efficient strategy has a downside the extreme temperatures that make the whole operation more difficult! This is because the heat normally generated during demanding hard
machining translates into a lot of stress for the tools.â€? The robust PEACOCK cutters avoid this stress by heat, virtually in its entirety, because the easycutting design and the smooth WAD coating result in hardly any high temperatures being generated during machining. Smoothly polished chip spaces swiftly remove chips from the tool so that the process temperature can be easily verified. The strong shaft and cutting geometry greatly prolongs service life. Conclusion: PEACOCK is an all-round talent! As with the entire PEACOCK family, the micro-geometry of the mill cutters ensures high precision during hard machining. Apart from significant life cycle increases due to the stable shaft and cutting geometry, the WAD-coated mill cutters achieve excellent surface qualities. In addition, the micro mill cutters, configured for shape and concentricity accuracies of 0.005 resp. 0.003 mm, guarantee a high dimensional precision of the component. Not to be forgotten are the highly detailed recording of all work processes as well as the identification number at the end of the shaft of the mill cutters that enable exact reproducibility.

Bottledwater Company Implements Large-Format Irwindows
ne of North Americaâ€™s leading bottled water companies - dedicated to both providing customers with healthy hydration options and to keeping their employees safe - needed a solution to help optimize their asset life cycles. Their primary goal was defining cost-effective, consistent maintenance processes for their facilities, and adopting the technologies needed to support and sustain these processes throughout the U.S. and Canada. The company brought in consultants for recommendations on placement, sizing, and types of infrared windows to be installed at the Ontario, Canada facility. After an initial site survey, the consultants recommended the IRW-xPC series in various sizes to complete this project. The IRW-xPC series is a NEMA 4 / IP65 rated IR window and ideal for indoor applications. Available sizes are 6, 12, and 24 inches. ANALYSIS OF INSPECTION PROGRAM The company developed a reliability and maintenance policy that includes a 3- to 5-year improvement plan. This policy was then communicated to all employees. The company outlined all essential reliability and maintenance elements, their key performance indicators, why these are important and the importance of a Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) and Reliability Based Maintenance (RBM) program for overall plant safety. The company had done the necessary research and determined that they would retrofit using the transparent polymer infrared windows - a safer method of conducting standards-compliant inspections. It was decided by the reliability team to implement the large format infrared polymer windows for main switchgear bus connections; main breaker connections and fused switches to help eliminate the hazard of live work by finding hot spots through the IR windows. As a result, more frequent inspections of energized equipment could be performed by retrofitting with IR windows for routine inspections. The closed panel
MACHINE TOOLS WORLD
Consultants chose large-format IR windows in several sizes for the project
inspections with the windows in place did not require the elevated levels of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) mandated in NFPA 70E, thus reducing time and maintenance costs. Thermal imaging was not new to the maintenance and reliability team as they had previously retrofitted some equipment with traditional round calcium fluoride windows. However, it was determined that a transparent polymer IR window available in various large formatted sizes would provide both visual and thermal inspection with fewer units needing to be installed. The polymer-based IR windows are unaffected by environmental and mechanical stresses that often impact IR windows fitted to electrical distribution equipment. By installing polymer-based windows, the company could help ensure that temperature data collected through the IR window would be accurate and reliable for the whole life
CASE STUDY of the installation. Industrial-grade IR windows meet mandatory impact and load testing requirements of UL, CSA, IEEE and IEC. With the infrared windows installed, there was no need to remove panels or wear increased levels of PPE. Inspections could now be performed more often and on electrical equipment that had previously been considered “uninspectable” due to high levels of arc flash incident energy. The installation process proceeded smoothly and included: • Pre-planning to identify the equipment and obtain approval to shut down. • De-energizing the equipment with two electricians to make sure it was safely isolated, locked out and tagged out. • Once de-energized, the two electricians removed all covers on the equipment in question. • The IR windows were installed using supplied drill/ cut templates in the appropriate location and the covers were replaced. • Appropriate PPE was put on by the electricians and the equipment was re-energized. • Together with operations, the electricians confirmed
the equipment was operating at normal load levels and allowed sufficient time for the equipment to become thermally stable. • Thermographer electrician then performed the infrared inspection on the equipment to secure baseline temperature data. • Personnel completed the inspection by taking notes of any problems discovered.
Incoming line connection and main breaker cabinets were also fitted with 24-inch windows
RESULTS The bottled water company has recognized a huge savings in time and money with the implementation of transparent polymer infrared windows into their condition-based monitoring program. The use of polymer IR windows allows more convenient and frequent inspections resulting the ability to catch and fix potential problems long before they turn into unexpected outages. In this way, the bottled water locations will see increased Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) on their critical electrical infrastructure. Most large facilities with large distribution power systems find that their insurance provider requires annual IR inspections of their electrical systems. This mandate is a direct result of verbiage found in NFPA 70B but retrofitting IR windows enables the facility to perform these inspections in a fraction of the time and in a much safer way. Based on the results at the first sites, the bottled water company has now proceeded with implementation of the IR window solutions at 29 of their sites around North America.

EMAG as a central machinery supplier was the support the company provided in the planning phase: Rapid response times, central points of contact for all questions, and comprehensive technology expertise were crucial. What is distinctive about the quality of the various assembly line and standalone systems at Pankl? When you talk to the managers at Pankl about the new “High Performance Drivetrain Plant,” terms like “full traceability,” “zero-error strategy,” “top performance,” and “digitalization” come up a lot. They give you an idea of the demanding task that was given to them at the beginning of 2016. Detailed planning for the new plant started at that time, encompassing not only transmission manufacturing but also a heat
treatment system, four assembly lines for ready-to-install transmission shafts, and an “additive manufacturing” facility. The overall goal was to develop an ultramodern plant for the production of drivetrain systems—with an eye on the growing technological challenges in motorcycle manufacturing, because the new plant would produce complete motorcycle transmissions for Pankl’s customer, KTM. Europe’s leading motorcycle maker, KTM constantly places great emphasis on component quality and lightweight design. Additionally, Pankl produces more than eleven different transmission models for KTM, which means a relatively high component diversity for drive input and output shafts and idler and sliding
CASE STUDY gears. “Ultimately all the production chains have to follow the principles of quality, safety, and flexibility,” saidBernd Kögler, plant manager for transmission manufacturing at Pankl. “This means we use ultramodern and extremely precise machines that are interlinked by intelligent automation systems and are flexible in use. And, all the quality data relating to a component is 100 percent traceable— from the original melting of the alloy through to the finished part. That gives us high process reliability. If weak points arise, they can be quickly identified and remedied.” Partner with Complete Turning Expertise Pankl’s technology partner in the “turning” application area is EMAG, with a total of 15 turning machines and one grinding machine from EMAG being installed in the new plant. These include three complete production lines, each with three VL 100 machines for the soft machining of gears, two connected VL 200 machines for the hard machining of gears, two VTC 100-4 units for the soft machining of shafts, and an additional production line for the hard machining of shafts that includes the VTC 100-4 turning center and the HG 204 horizontal grinding machine. Last but not least, there are two more VL 100 pick-
EMAG machine control interface
up turning centers that are used as standalone machines, for tasks such as the manufacturing of prototypes. With such a high volume of orders, the question naturally arises, how did the company decide on EMAG as its primary partner for turning? “I should start by explaining that although we’d been developing and producing complex mechanical systems for hightechnology industries such as auto racing and aerospace for many years, we hadn’t previously had any mass production of transmissions,” said Stefan Zinner, technical director of transmission manufacturing at Pankl. “So we were looking for a partner who could assist us right from the start, advise us about the turning processes

required, and finally provide us with complete systems. In that sense, EMAG is an obvious machine supplier who has a very good reputation especially in the area of turning.” Soft Machining of 22 Different Shafts To understand the requirements that are important in choosing a machinery manufacturer, it helps to look at the lines installed for the soft machining of the drive input and output shafts, which handles eleven different models of each. Pankl opted here for a process that is both demanding and perfectly synchronized, with a stacking cell, two EMAG machines, a pick-and-place unit, and a gantry robot. The slugs and blanks are transported by gantry loader to the O-belt of the first VTC 100-4. This vertical turning center has two workpiece grippers that can each pick up a part and put down a finished one, in parallel to the machining operation. This reduces non-productive time when turning the first side. Additionally, a four-axis turning operation is used to minimize machining time. Once that operation is completed, a pick-and-place unit picks up the parts and turns them over for equally rapid turning of the second side in the second VTC 100-4. The
MACHINE TOOLS WORLD
CASE STUDY gantry robot then conveys the part to a laser marking system. The writing and data matrix applied to the part ensure that every shaft is traceable. The production process then continues with gear teeth cutting, case hardening, truing, and hard machining—with the latter again involving EMAG technology. The machines used here are another VTC 100-4 for hard turning of recesses and shoulders, and the HG 204 horizontal grinding machine for plunge grinding along the entire shaft. Michael Mogg, team leader for machine turning at Pankl, summed up the situation: “The lot sizes in our shaft production vary considerably between 800 and 5,000 units. So it’s important to us that all processes, including re-tooling, go smoothly and quickly. We make sure of that with these flexible production systems.” High Reliability of Supply A similarly perfect solution was achieved in the production system for the soft machining of a total of 110 different idler and sliding gears for various motorcycle transmissions. The three production lines, each with three EMAG pick-up machines of the VL 100, rapidly carry out
Different transmission models for KTM motorcycles
rough-machining of the first side (OP10), rough-machining and finishmachining of the second side (OP20), and finish-machining of the first side (OP30). Once again, a gantry loader provides the link between the machines. An interesting additional feature here is an image processing system, which guarantees that the part has the correct radial alignment before being clamped. The workpiece carriers used were developed specifically by Pankl. They ensure rapid and flexible loading of the machines with a wide range of parts—lot sizes between 800 and 2,500 units are typical for the
company’s gear production. In total, Pankl currently produces about 80,000 transmissions every year, and that number is rising fast: The company is already aiming for more than 100,000 transmissions in 2020. What is the leadership team’s overall take on the situation more than one year after the start of production? “We feel our plans have been vindicated,” said plant manager Bernd Kögler. “We’re now seeing an efficient process for the many different components we make. We’re reaching the target volumes we aimed for in our planning, and at the same time we can guarantee the required level of quality at all times. Our customer can rely on this reliability of supply—and exactly that was far and away our most important objective. EMAG has basically been our technology partner in the area of turning, and will continue to play that role.”

They are compact, universally compatible and secure against ma-nipulation: The slam latches GN 936 from Elesa+Ganter serve as surface-mounted latches, primarily in systems engineering. By auto-matically latching doors, flaps or other access points to work rooms, automation zones and machine enclosures when the latch snaps into place, slam latches are always the first choice when quick and easy solutions are required. The new slam latches are mounted on the surface and are compati-ble with a very wide range of profile systems as chosen by the cus-tomer. Naturally, they can also be mounted to smooth surfaces. In the latter case, it is also possible to affix the part from the rear. Socket head cap screws, hexagon head screws and hexagon nuts, all in thread size M6, may be used for mounting. Thanks to the slot design, it is easy to adjust for different gap dimensions between the frame and the door. The housing as well as the lock mechanisms are made of robust die-cast zinc and are available with black or silver coating. The latches and covers are produced of plastic in matching colors featuring a subtle texture. A wide bevel running around the edge gives the slam latch an elegant and lightweight appearance, as does the accentuat-ed shape of the release grip. The compact standard part is available in three versions: a non-lockable variant entirely without lock and two versions, one with universal key and one with a unique key. In addition to the robust design, protection against manipulation was a high priority during development: The catch and the latch engage with an offset and with relative positioning that prevents unauthorized opening right from the start. The front or rear mounting options are also designed in consideration of security aspects. In the closed state, the slam latch cannot be removed. The mounting points remain hid-den under plastic covers that can only be removed while the slam latch is open. Only then it is possible to access the screws.
