How well pronounced the burrs are depends on various parameters, for example the utilised machining technology, as well as the quality of the tool and the material. &ldquo;However, as yet neither knowledge of this issue nor the methods for removing burrs are well developed in industry, and these factors play no role at all in industrial training&rdquo;, reports G&uuml;nter G&ouml;lz, managing director of Benseler Entgratungen GmbH. All of the representatives of the ten companies and research institutes who belong to <strong>Deburring</strong>Expo&rsquo;s exhibitor advisory board, established March 2015, agreed on this point. &ldquo;And thus a trade fair which focuses on this issue was long overdue&rdquo;, adds G&ouml;lz. The fact that he&rsquo;s absolutely right is confirmed by the exhibitor list which is already filling up with companies from inside and outside of Germany including ALFRA Alfred Raith GmbH, Alicona Imaging GmbH, ARKU Maschinenbau GmbH, ATL Anlagentechnik Luhden GmbH, AUTOPULIT, Dr. Beier-Entgrattechnik, Otto Dilg GmbH, ElpoChem AG, HK-Koti GmbH, KADIA Produktion GmbH + Co., KEMPF GmbH, Kennametal Extrude Hone GmbH, Lapmaster Wolters GmbH, Lessmann GmbH, Micro Technica Technologies GmbH, Piller Entgrattechnik GmbH, plasotec GmbH SITEC Industrietechnologie GmbH and Timesavers International B.V.</p> <p>With equipment, systems and tools for belt grinding, brushing, abrasive flow machining, vibratory grinding, blasting with solid and liquid media such as high pressure water jets and CO<sub>2</sub> snow jets, abrasive water-jet blasting, magnetic-abrasive deburring, ultrasonic deburring, chemical bath deburring, electrochemical machining (ECM), precision electrochemical machining (PECM), electron beam machining, thermal energy machining (TEM), mechanical deburring, buffing, polish honing, electrolytic polishing, plasma polishing, laser polishing, immersion and brush polishing, as well as measuring, test and analysis systems, <strong>Deburring</strong>EXPO presents offerings which permit cross-industry and cross-technology information gathering and procurement. Deburring and polishing as services, research, training and literature are further areas for which solutions are offered at the trade fair.</p> <p>Offerings presented at <strong>Deburring</strong>EXPO will be rounded out with an integrated expert forum which will make it possible for visitors to gather information about innovative deburring and polishing technologies, as well as practical examples. Benchmark solutions will also be explored, for example how costs resulting from errors can be avoided and how functional reliability can be achieved while maintaining uniformly high levels of quality. This exchange of experience amongst experts, exhibitors and visitors provides all involved parties with considerable added value.</p> </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://americanmachinist.com/1st-deburringexpo" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://americanmachinist.com/1st-deburringexpo#comments 49.002400 8.399980 Wed, 29 Apr 2015 14:30:00 +0000 24671 at http://americanmachinist.com United Grinding Tool Event http://americanmachinist.com/united-grinding-tool-event <div class="node-body event-body">United Grinding North America, Inc. will highlight methods for creating tool performance using the latest advancements in grinding at a Tool Event in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

Organized into three different learning tracks, attendees can register for the sessions that focus on the topics of their choice.</p> <p>Track 1 concentrates on conventional grinding. It includes sessions on how to optimize machine results and a presentation of the facts on flute positioning in grinding wheels. Those choosing Track 1 will also see machine demonstrations on a variety of conventional grinding tools including the Walter Helitronic Micro, Walter Helitronic Power and EWAG Compact Line.</p> <p>Track 2 presents attendees with opportunities to attend sessions on superhard materials. They will also hear first-hand about a job shop owner&rsquo;s experience with vacuum brazing, and see demonstrations of grinding, eroding and lasering superhard materials with the EWAG Laser Line Ultra, Walter Helitronic Power Diamond with Robot, and the latest Walter Helitronic machine, which will make its debut at the event.</p> <p>Track 3 focuses on some of the peripheral components that enhance quality. Sessions will cover measuring technology and why it is needed, a presentation of information on grinding coolant and its importance on surface finish, and demonstrations on Walter measuring machines, including the Helicheck 3D, Heliscale, and the Helicheck Plus with Robot.</p> <p>Alternate sessions are available throughout the day. These include one-on-one demonstrations of Helitronic Tool Studio, the latest generation in grinding software including the new features and Plug-ins; an overview of the Customer Care Kiosk; and a session on Machine Data Monitor (MDM).</p> <p>&ldquo;This event is an excellent opportunity for manufacturers to quickly and easily get information about various types of new technology and techniques that will help them improve productivity and surface quality,&rdquo; said Markus Stolmar, vice president of tool and measurement sales for United Grinding North America, Inc.</p> <p>An optional, casual-attire evening event on July 22 and 23 is also available for attendees.
