Thinbit, manufactured by Kaiser Tool Company Inc., introduces its angled round toolholders, which are designed for CNC, conventional and end working positions on Swiss screw machines.
The angled round toolholders position the insert at 30°, 45° or 60° angles for reliefs, undercuts and angled OD and face grooves. Round shank sizes are available in diameters of ½, 5/8, ¾, and 1 in. and 20 mm and 25 mm.
Made for use with Thinbit inserts in grades for ferrous and non-ferrous materials. Inserts are available in sizes 0.004-0.150 in. in 0.001-in. increments coated with TiN, TiAlN, TiCN, diamond film or uncoated.
Moldmakers need to be aware of how different gating technology can affect their customers when designing a hot runner system into a mold.
To achieve the ultimate capability and level of productivity from your wire EDM on a consistent, repeatable and reliable basis, regular maintenance is a required task.
While both hot runner and cold runner systems have their benefits, for design flexibility as well as reduced cycle times and costs, hot runner systems will probably be the better choice.
