The players in CAM software developmentLarry Haftl
Publish on 7/1/2008 01:07:01 PMComputer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software offers machine shop operators a fast return-on-investment productivity improvement solution, but finding the CAM package that offers a shop the most potential benefit is anything but easy. Mergers, acquisitions and entries in the already dynamic CAM software market makes it even more difficult for machine shop operators to identify which CAM package is right for them. There are more than 40 CAM software packages available, and more are introduced to the market each year.

Dialogue with WALTER and TITEX/PROTOTYP
Publish on 7/1/2008 01:07:25 PMWALTER Development Manager Jurgen Daub and his colleague Josef GieBler, TITEX/PROTOTYP developer, took a closer look of the developments in the PCD (Polycrystalline Diamond) and CBN (Cubic Boron Nitride) field, for which their customers use carbide cutting tool materials and where diamonds are being used. Both are equally interested in the materials which they may be able to reckon on in the future-CFK and new titanium alloys. IMNA: What highlights are you expecting this year? GieBler: Modular solid tools are a hot topic at the moment, i.e.
Selecting the best tool gets the job quickly
Publish on 7/1/2008 01:07:38 PM在今天的金属加工业，从高碳钢到陶瓷和钻石的各种工具材料被用作了切削工具，因此，知道工具材料之间的差别、这些差别是什么、以及每种材料的正确用途都是重要的。切削工具使用者不应忽视工具材料技术领域所取得的持续变化和进步。无论何时需要或预期要更换工具，都应当在为作业选择工具之前比较性能。切削工具必须具有硬度、韧度和耐磨性等特征。
Add milling to your turning operation
Publish on 7/1/2008 01:07:26 PMThe process of cutting, shaping and finishing a piece of metal is defined as milling. Most shops consider turning and milling as part of their production mix simply because stand-alone machining centers and turning centers are basic components of a shop's manufacturing capacity. Machines that combine machining operations on a single platform are not atypical as many might think. The most successful illustration of combining metalworking process technology is the CNC machining center.
Publish on 6/5/2008 05:06:46 PMThe 22nd International Exhibition on Plastics and Rubber Industries (Chinaplas 2008) lasted for four days from 17 to 20 April in Pudong, Shanghai, PR China. It is estimated that 63,000 trade visitors from local and overseas have attended to overview and purchase more than 1,800 sets of advanced machines and a wide array of chemicals and raw materials. Since the show is the first large one subsequent to K 2007, the world's No.
