Throwback Thursday: Run Silent, Run Aggressive
Serenity now! Ahem, okay, so today’s throwback isn’t about finding peace in the shop, but it is about using dampening tools to quiet your roughing operations.
Did you know vibration dampening tools can be very effective in roughing operations? They can, and this week’s TBT feature, titled Run Silent, Run Aggressive and contributed by Sandvik Coromont Co., explains how it works and why it might be more advantageous to shops looking to reduce lead times in machining processes (and who isn’t?).
Even if you’re already using dampening tools, this feature is worth revisiting on the chance there are different ways to employ the technology and gain further benefits. Check out Sandvik’s showroom for more recent product introductions and features.
