A new PCD cutter, developed by Lach Diamond in cooperation with the Audi AG, will be introduced at IMTS 2014 in September. The “Cool Injection-Plus” PCD cutter represents a combination of Lach-developed and patented “Cool Injection” cooling system and the “Plus”, a chip controller for the HSC cutting of aluminum patented by the Audi.
At IMTS 2014, EMAG will feature Manufacturing Systems for Precision Metal Components with multiple machines from its new modular standard VL and VT product families on display. These Modular Standard Machines offer a systematic approach that is advantageous to establishing a highly efficient manufacturing process, with different operations offered on the same platform, allowing for easy interlinking and eliminating any great capital investment for automation.
Using 2014 R2, operators can optimize five-axis toolpaths to specific machine configurations and rotational axis limits. As this is carried out at an operational level, any changes to the toolpath data or machine configuration will be highlighted and the operation can be easily updated and re-optimized.
