IMTS 2014 PRODUCTS Inspection Software Ofers Thread Measurement Add-On Oasis Inspection Systems, Booth E-5525 Coolant Clamp Reduces Setup Time GenSwiss, Booth W-2356 GenSwiss' Multidec-Lube coolant-through toolholder clamp for CNC Swiss machines permits optimum coolant jet positioning, eliminates time bending and aiming cool- ant lines, reduces overall setup time and prevents stringy chips collecting on cut- ting tools, the company says. The design incorporates a coolant/oil delivery passage in the tool clamp that ensures a repeatable jet fow even after multiple tool changes or setups. This feature allows use of conven- tional square shank toolholders as if they were coolant-through because the coolant travels through the clamp and can remain semi-permanently plumbed into the high pressure system. :: GenSwiss 413-562-4800 George Products Company ofers a thread measurement add-on to its Oasis inspection system, which instantly and simultaneously measures external dimensions on profle views of parts. The soft- ware's thread tool measures key components of thread geometry in less than a second, says the company, including major, minor and pitch diameters. Pitch distance as well as crest and root truncation are also included. The thread tool also works on 60-degree, V-form straight threads, and tolerances can be individually set for each characteris- tic measured. Other capabilities include threaded part sorting and thread identif- cation in large batches. Inspection is said to achieve accuracies to ±0.0001". In operation, the inspected parameters display on the system monitor, which graphically shows the status of every com- ponent in trafc light colors: green indicates within tolerance, yellow indicates close to limits and red indicates out of tolerance. Dimen- sions can be saved in the inspection report spreadsheet or im- ported in real time to SPC (statistical process control). Alternatively, the thread tool suits in-process thread production monitoring. :: Oasis Inspection Systems 302-449-0199 Mikron Multistep XT-200 Reduce your cost-per-part with Mikron UNIQUE The Mikron Multistep Machining System is outstanding in reaching most competitive cost-per-part combined with unmatched flexibility when machining close tolerance metal components. Based on unique and unbeatable Modularity and Flexibility, the machine adapts quickly to changing production requirements guaranteeing always highest preci- sion. With an automatic loading module and up to 4 individual machining modules, a maximum of 144 cutting tools can be used. Machining of complex and high precision components on 5 ½ faces in a single clamping, simultaneously with 5 axis and two spindles sets this machine apart from other machining methods. The less than 1 second chip-to-chip time translates into outstanding performance and truly cost effective efficiency. MIKRON CORP.
