Stellar Precision owner discusses tooling on the shop floor with production manager Ed Frieze.

NEWS

STELLAR SUCCESS

The mix of machine tools on Stellar’s shop floor is one of continuous improvement and adoption of new technology.

This solid ceramic endmill might feel like plastic in your hand, but its cutting performance in nickel-based alloys is often twenty times that of carbide tools.

Solid ceramic endmills from Kennametal help this aerospace job shop meet a critical delivery date.

M

ost shops evaluate new cutting tools in an effort to reduce machining time, increase tool life, or improve part quality, and sometimes all three. Stellar Precision Components Ltd., a Tier II aerospace supplier in Jeanette, Pennsylvania, did it for an entirely different reason. “We’d just taken an order for some Inconel parts,” says production manager Edward Frieze. “None of us were really worried at that point about tool life or making a profit on the job—our only concern then was how the heck could we get them shipped in eight weeks.”

“We started out doing a lot of overload work from other larger shops in the area, but that evolved into direct support of several nuclear programs because of my father’s experience in this area,” says daughter Lori Albright, now owner and president of Stellar Precision. “We’ve since become a key supplier to a number of prime aerospace and defense contractors including Boeing, Lockheed, and Raytheon, as well as various nuclear and medical customers, and have over 70 employees and sales revenues of nearly ten million dollars US.”

Opening Doors Four decades earlier, Mike Vucish Sr. was working for a manufacturer of naval nuclear components when he saw an opportunity to go into business for himself. He bought some equipment, invited a few students from the technical school where he taught shop class at night, and opened the doors of Stellar Precision in 1978. He continued to work at his day job until his fledgling company was firmly established, but in the meantime brought some family members on board to help out.

Stellar prides itself on continual updates to its equipment list, and has an eclectic mix of CNC machine tools from Haas Automation and Okuma, although that balance is steadily tipping in Haas’ favor as the shop’s older machines go into retirement. Albright says not only is the Haas equipment less expensive than its foreign-built competition, but that “Made in America” resonates with many of Stellar’s customers. “This approach also lets us replace our equipment on a more regular basis, which in turn keeps us current on technology.” Key equipment includes an Okuma LB-45 lathe able to turn 36 in. diameter parts up to 120 in. long (91 mm x 305 cm), and a Haas VF-11 5-axis machining center with 10 ft.

Stellar also has several wire EDMs, a dozen or so 3, 4, and 5-axis machining centers and mill-turn lathes, and offers value-added services such as non-destructive testing, welding, heat treating, and Teflon coating. Not Too Tough Stellar is used to meeting demanding requirements. Recent projects include components for RAM Block II anti-ship missiles, the CCtCap crew transport vehicle, 155mm Long Range Land Attack Projectile (LRLAP) advanced gun system, rocket motor cases for the Atlas Five launch vehicle, and others. Their newest project, however, would be one to test the mettle of machinists and management alike.

Nor was tolerance an issue. Frieze points to one recent titanium part that called out a 0.005 in. (0.127 mm) profile tolerance over its 12 in. length (304 mm), the equivalent of holding “a couple tenths” in parts that cost over $5000

Seminar Payoff Earlier that year, Frieze and several of his coworkers had attended a learning event sponsored by a local chapter of the National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA), and hosted at the Kennametal technical center in the nearby town of Latrobe. There he met product manager Matthieu Guillon, who introduced him to a cutting tool that Frieze was initially skeptical of. “It looked and felt like a plastic toy end mill,” he laughs. That tool was Kennametal’s series of 4 and 6-flute high performance full ceramic end mills. Constructed of SiAlON KYS40 grade ceramic and designed specifically for roughing in nickel-based high-temperature alloys, these end mills often out-produce carbide by up to 20 times. Says Guillon, “We recommend a starting speed of 825 SFM up to 3300 SFM (250 to 1000 m/min) and feedrates starting at around 0.001 IPT (0.03 mm) depending on the tool diameter and other conditions. Despite the far higher cutting speeds,

Frieze explains that Stellar had just received a purchase order for a handful of Inconel 625 prototypes. The raw material blanks for the job measured 18 in. square x 3 in. thick (457 x 457 x 76 mm), and weighed nearly 300 lb. each (134 kg). The project team suffered little indigestion over the tough material’s poor machinability; Stellar routinely cuts Inconel and other nickel-based superalloys, as well as tungsten, maraging steels, 60 Rc 4340 (300M), and tool steel.

apiece before machining. Meeting the relatively wide open tolerances on the Inconel part was not a concern. The problem was one of raw material removal: when finished, the Inconel plates weighed in at a svelte 30 lb. (13.6 kg), 90-percent lighter than their starting weight. Frieze knew there weren’t enough hours in the day to remove that much material using conventional carbide tooling, not if he were to meet the deadline. He needed a better solution.

“The tools aren’t inexpensive,” he says. “At one point, Lori had around $20,000 worth of end mills sitting in her office and we were starting to question the investment. But once you calculated in the machine costs and reduced cycle time, we figured it was three to four times more cost-effective to go this route. Each end mill gave us one half hour of cut time, at which time we replaced it whether it was worn or not. The process was so predictable we were able to run lights out. It was a drastic savings.”

Young people and fresh ideas are two of Stellar’s biggest assets, says owner Lori Albright.

we have some customers who have reported 2 to 3 times greater tool life than carbide.”  >>> Stellar didn’t have any immediate use for the ceramic tools, but after making some quick feed and speed calculations, Frieze knew they would be an effective solution given the right application. Several months later, that application arrived with the Inconel plates. He called Guillon to say he might have a good use for those ceramic cutters they were talking about, and wondered how soon he could get some. Skeptic to the Last Frieze remained skeptical. He’d tried indexable ceramic cutting tools on both milling and turning jobs in the past and had mediocre results. In this case, however, he was willing to try anything if it meant meeting the customer’s deadline. When Guillon arrived a few days later with the ceramic end mills, Frieze followed Kennametal’s feed and speed recommendations to the letter, crossed his fingers, and pushed cycle start.

“We weren’t certain what would happen so started out with a block of test material,” he says. “You don’t use cutting fluid with ceramic—only an air blast—and everyone in the shop was crowded around the machine saying, ‘Wow, look at that!’ There was fire shooting everywhere. It was something we’d never seen before. But within the first hour, we knew it was going to work.” 05 | Industry EMEA | July 2016

Enjoying the Heat Best of all, Stellar delivered the parts on time with zero scrap, and is now quoting a second, even larger order. Owner Lori Albright was quite pleased with the outcome. “This type of situation is the nature of our business. We have to react to our customers’ needs and employ the best technology available to do so. That’s one of the reasons why Kennametal is so welcome here. We work together as a team to solve challenges.” Looking forward, Albright anticipates continued growth. Having expanded Stellar’s existing facility six times, she figures it might be time to put up an entirely new building on nearby property. She also looks forward to bringing additional young people to the machining trade. “We have apprenticeship programs with several of the area schools, one of which my father used to teach at,” she says. “I find that it’s often our younger people that drive our innovation. It's too easy to keep doing things the old way and not invest in tooling and equipment, or pursue new technology. The days of high volume, round-the-clock fender clip manufacturing are gone, and it’s only by continually improving their manufacturing processes that companies can succeed and grow. For us, Kennametal is part of that success.” www.kennametal.com

HIGH IMPACT CUSTOMIZED SOLUTIONS INTERCONNECTED ENGINEERING SERVICE INCREASES PRODUCTIVITY AND CREATES TANGIBLE ADDED VALUE

The linear axis can be positioned exactly using an AKD & AKM one-cable package (incl. control unit).

MEquadrat AG is a start-up that has been providing highly specialized solutions for four years as a mechatronics service provider, particularly in the laboratory and medical areas.Interdisciplinary thinking plays a fundamental role in this company’s product development activities. Original ideas related to implementation, efficient development and customized support also characterize the collaboration they had with drive specialist Kollmorgen on their new production module for the medical sector. Kollmorgen’s backlash-free direct drive solution allows exact synchronicity and concentricity with maximum precision up to 2 µm, and is more cost-effective.

ne of the founding concepts of the service company MEquadrat AG, situated in the municipality of Root in Lucerne, is networked thinking and the creation of new machines and systems that meet its customers’ needs through consistency in the software used, the sophisticated mechanical and electronic components, and the associated increase in the degree of automation.

One thing is clear for Stefan Nyffenegger, a member of the executive management team at MEquadrat AG: “The interlock between the mechanics, electronics, and software is the key to innovative products and higher productivity. We also break new ground with our unconventional approach, as can be seen with the current project for a machine module that is designed for processing thin-walled material in the medical sector”. A difficult objective: Precise clamping despite high levels of rotation The two-sided and torsion-free clamping of highly sensitive glass and aluminum tubes is a particular challenge for the production module developed and constructed in Root.

The high speed for the material clamped on both sides in the process requires absolute precision in terms of the synchronicity. Developing the overall module in such a compact manner in accordance with the customer’s strict specifications required a highly meticulous and extremely precise drive system for the spindles in the workpiece feeder mechanism and for the relevant process steps with the clamped product. Stefan Nyffenegger highlights: “With the KBM kit motor solution from Kollmorgen we have found the perfect solution for our needs, as the product can be guided through the drive in a fluid process thanks to the large hollow shaft.”

But tt became apparent that a rotor and a stator with the full functionality of a servo drive should be used as a result of the compact packing density and complexity of this assembly. In the end, the company decided the best

Aside from the time pressure and the extreme requirements related to precision in the functional specifications, there was another additional crucial challenge related to the medical technology: “The drive solution must be free from abrasion and lubricant, and we weren’t able to carry out any experiments at the implementation and commissioning stages for the mechanics and software”, says Nyffenegger. All of the components provided in this machine module therefore had to be tested and shown to be absolutely reliable.

MORE INFORMATION

Collaboration on an equal footing for unconventional solutions The engineers at MEquadrat already had the idea of selecting a direct drive as they were designing the drive system. heir intention was to use an existing modular design in order to meet the precision requirements and to guarantee implementation on a time and cost-efficient basis.

solution was from Kollmorgen. The experts at the drive manufacturer were ready for any special requests.Decisions at the implementation stage for this project were made very quickly, as the experts from both companies collaborated witheach other on an equal footing. The synchronicity however remained a problem. But a few ideas were developed for this and the product selection was narrowed down during some initial telephone discussions. The Key Account Manager at Kollmorgen, Martin Zimmermann, and his colleagues providd their full support: “When MEquadrat only requested the rotor and the stator for the feeder unit in this project, we knew that a mechatronics engineer would need to focus on the motor in greater detail. You have to have confidence when trying new things like in this project, which requires mutual and absolute trust”.

extremely precise positioning. The cycle times in the current regulator are around 670 ns, and are just 62.5 µs in the speed regulator. Nyffenegger stresses: “This allows us to achieve optimum synchronicity in line with these high dynamic requirements. As such this drive combination represents the optimum price-performance ratio.” Precise positioning with plug-and-play solutions The crucial thing here that the two synchronized axes achieve extremely precise concentricity of 2 µm. Nyffenegger adds: “We’re talking about accuracy ranges that are otherwise only seen in spindle axes in large production plants.” The high speed was another of the major challenges in this project. There are systems on the market that “can indeed clamp sensitive products such as these at the required level of accuracy, but they often lose their clamping force from 500 rotations per minute. I haven’t seen any comparable product on the market that maintains its full clamping force at 3000 rpm!”, highlights Nyffenegger.

Highly compact cable carriers can also be used which really are sensational for tight spaces.” Summary: Achieving the objective using collaboration based on trust The AKD one-cable package (controller & servo motor) is used for the components in the liner drive for the feeder mechanism. The major benefit with this is that the system comes from one source. Nyffenegger emphasizes: “This way I don’t need to worry about any screw fittings or pins that do not fit. We just had to plug it in and get started, which also made the implementation time very short.” Integration of the precise drive technology in the precise mechanics was therefore the central element in the very close and focused collaboration for this project. Keeping an eye on the costs – despite the required level of speed accuracy, the bearing and form tolerances for the mechanics and the fact that everything fits right from the word go, required a lot of mutual trust for both sides. Martin Zimmermann adds: “Our specific part in the project related in particular to our comprehensive recommendation as to how the customer can achieve its objective in an optimized and most costeffective manner .” One thing is clear for Stefan Nyffenegger: “We were also able to discuss ideas directly with the Kollmorgen product developers, and put forward our requests related to the shaft and hub connections. Sitting down at a table and discussing in order to find solutions, or discussing the design details on the phone, provided us with the assurance that everything

NSK UNVEILS AIP+ ADDED VALUE PROGRAMME

NSK can provide a range of induction heaters in different sizes based on weight and power requirements.

To help ensure the optimised and profitable operation of machinery and equipment, NSK has introduced its AIP+ Added Value Programme. Designed to deliver a complete bearing care package, AIP+ uses a quartet of innovative maintenance and service tools – condition monitoring, mounting tools, laser alignment and lubrication solutions – which have been carefully developed to help maximise machine performance and operating life.

N

SK’s Condition Monitoring Service (CMS) is a comprehensive health check for operational machinery. Offering a consistent process of application, CMS comprises an initial assessment to check both the suitability of CMS and define its monitoring route. This is followed by data collection using NSK vibration, temperature and speed measuring equipment, along with data analysis to check the health of the machine, and full reporting including recommended actions.

Any unwanted forces, such as those resulting from outof-alignment or out-of-balance conditions, will be easily identified following application of the NSK condition monitoring equipment, which can measure vibration, for example, in three axes simultaneously. The monitoring equipment will also pick up any issues relating to lack of lubrication or the potential for early fatigue. NSK already has a fully trained team of CMS experts in place that is able to respond to requests across Europe.

MORE INFORMATION

With regard to NSK’s selection of bearing mounting tools, these have been designed to ensure that all bearings are handled and fitted correctly, without damage. To obtain optimum performance, bearings must be fitted correctly, both on to a shaft and into a housing. Due to the fact that one ring of the bearing will have an interference fit, installation requires special tools so that the necessary force is applied evenly to the fitted ring. Alternatively, heat can be applied to achieve assembly, again using NSK tools supplied as part of AIP+. 05 | Industry EMEA | July 2016

The moulding workshop The moulding workshop is the core production activity at the Muzillac plant. Twenty-two Engel, Fanuc or Ferromatik injection presses are served by a suspended crane fitted with a 3-tonne VERLINDE EUROBLOC VT hoist for mould changing operations. These presses are used for the moulding of connectors for small pneumatic hoses and for compressed air system couplings in industrial buildings. For the car industry, five presses are dedicated to the production of motor fuel distribution circuits integrated by Parker Autolive in its manufacturing facilities. Mickael Le Pon, injection facility production manager, explains.”We carry out between 300 and 350 parts series changes per month involving just as many injection mould changes. To ensure the moulding workshop works at full capacity it is first of all vital that the moulds are in perfect condition and as their 05 | Industry EMEA | July 2016

VERLINDE EUROBLOC VT hoists ready to be operated on the suspended cranes.

Installation of suspended cranes and VERLINDE MONOBLOC VT hoists Before the EUROPONT suspended cranes were installed, a single jib crane served the three work stations. As the manipulation of metallic moulds whose weight varies between 50 and 1500 kg necessitates taking numerous precautions, the toolmakers frequently had their work interrupted while awaiting the availability of the jib crane. It was therefore decided to make each station autonomous with its own suspended crane fitted with two VERLINDE hoists of a lifting capacity of 1.6 tonnes. The three EUROPONT cranes travel on the same metallic structure and to avoid accidental collisions, limit switches guarantee travel safety. Following this new work organization making each work station autonomous, the productivity of the mould routine maintenance shop has risen by 25%. As moulds are made of two parts whose sizes and weights vary, each crane is fitted with two VERLINDE EUROBLOC VT hoists in order to facilitate their manipulation in complete safety.

MORE INFORMATION

The selected VERLINDE EUROBLOC VT hoists are fitted with 2-speed motors for lifting and a variable speed motor for horizontal travel. In this way the load is totally controlled horizontally and vertically without any rocking effect. The daisy-chain type power supply is conventional and the control boxes are wired. This solution was in fact preferred to a wireless system for reasons of safety, in order to avoid any possible confusion between the control boxes of the three work stations.

VERLINDE, a long-time partner of PARKER HANNIFIN at Muzillac Mickael Lepon: “We have enjoyed a relationship of trust with SERE Maintenance for decades and so quite naturally we called upon them to re-organize our mould routine maintenance workshop. They delivered and installed the cranes and hoists and together we inspected the equipment at reception before testing the strength of the metallic structure under load. Our experience with a varied range of Verlinde equipment led us to install EUROBLOC VT hoists whose reliability meet our requirements with a high level of cost effectiveness. To this can be added the fact that SERE Maintenance is located not far from us making their preventive maintenance service very convenient. In the mid/long term, we envisage installing a second suspended crane in the moulding workshop to be accompanied by a further Verlinde hoist.”

PCVUE INTRODUCES PROXIMITY-BASED CONTEXTUAL MOBILITY FOR SCADA

PcVue® is ARC Informatique’s core product, the company is an independent provider in HMI/SCADA software. It has been contributing to the evolution of the automation industry for 30 years by providing a flexible solution for supervising building management systems, industrial processes, utilities, and infrastructure. The BTL listed PcVue Solutions are now entering an uncharted market to provide an innovative mobile offering for SCADA in intelligent buildings.

P

roximity-based services enabled by micro-geolocation for Indoor Positioning Systems (IPS) are growing quickly. The IPS technology market alone is estimated to reach $5 billion in revenues by 2017 and to represent over 200,000 installations of infrastructure equipment, including Wi-Fi hotspots, Bluetooth antennas, and more than 800 million branded applications downloads.

MORE INFORMATION

This technology has made possible the practical deployment of contextual Human Machine Interfaces (HMI). Contextual HMI creates the opportunity for new more efficient work processes for those who rely on Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Building Management Systems (BMS) to perform their job.

05 | Industry EMEA | July 2016

Remote access to supervisory systems have typically been accomplished by using internet browsers on laptops. With the increasing adoption of smart mobile devices, technology such as Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS) has been adopted as an alternative for mobile HMI. Navigating an HMI designed for a workstation while using a much smaller mobile device can prove difficult given the reduced screen size and mechanism for managing the mouse. A mobility infrastructure eliminates this problem via the presentation of information and controls in the context of role and place. It provides a dynamic HMI that changes as the worker moves through workplace zones automatically adjusting for job responsibility. In a plant scenario, such a system is aware which floor a worker is on and automatically sends the status and controls of equipment in that worker’s proximity. It is a very pro-active approach that is recognized to improve the efficiency of commissioning, operation and maintenance of automation systems.


NEWS

For safety, it is critical that the Mobility Server knows the current location of workers. With the ready availability of geolocation signals, IPS indoors and GPS outdoors, it is possible to track location by simply archiving the device’s position over time. Safety and dispatch tracking are natural functions of the Mobility Server which relies on position in order to create contextual HMI. PcVue Solutions are reinventing mobility architectures with smart mobile devices using proximity services in innovative ways to benefit SCADA and Intelligent Building projects throughout the world. www.pcvuesolutions.com
