PRODUCTS 46 PRODUCTION MACHINING :: OCTOBER 2016 Hz. A fast chip removing system with chip conveyor, automatic lubrication system, dust-proof electrical cabinet and Methods' safety package are all standard on the machine. A FANUC 0iMF control with a fourth-axis prep and a 10.4" color LCD is also standard and available in a swiveling control box for ergonomics and convenience. :: Methods Machine Tools Inc. 877-668-4262 VMC Reduces Peck-Drilling Vibration and Prevents Oscillation Hydraulic Actuating Cylinder with Simple Inlet Design Forkardt Inc.'s HWC hydraulic actuating cylinder is designed to replace many of the current European brand cylinders, but with a lower price, higher rpm capability and higher operat- ing pressures, the company says. The HWC features a simple inlet design, constant hydraulic flow, provision for coolant- through with a rotating union and a proximity switch or linear system stroke control. Also, it features standard, built-in trap- ping, which keeps the cylinder in its extended or retracted state for a period of time in the event of a hydraulic failure. The product is currently stocked in sizes 85 mm and 125 mm and is available for immediate delivery. :: Forkardt USA 800-794-6190 Methods Machine Tools Inc. has expanded its Feeler line to include the Feeler 1100V, a VMC with a rigid design and many features to provide accuracy and machining efficiency, the company says. The latest in the Feeler HV line, the HV-1100V, features a dedicated trunnion, 4+1 axis configuration and a 13.8" (350-mm) rotary table. The trunnion is a solidly built Autocam with roller cam technology and offers a 16" (406-mm) × 14" (356-mm) work envelope. The tilting A axis has a full ± 120-degree of motion. The VMC's reinforced cross-ribbed column structure and no counter-balance weight design is said to reduce peck-drilling vibra- tion and prevent oscillation normally caused by a counter-balance weight. The HV-1100V offers an X-axis travel of 33.5" (850 mm), a Y-axis travel of 19.3" (490 mm) and a Z-axis travel of 20.7" (525 mm). Rigorous speed vibration control is ensured by using a high- rigidity spindle that increases metal removal rates by more than 30 percent and improves machining accuracy and tool life. A maximum spindle speed of 12,000 rpm on 30-hp direct drive, 40-taper spindle is standard. The VMC also features a 30-tool magazine swing arm, and an automatic tool changer with a tool-to-tool time of 1 second/60 Sonic Bonded Pads for Variety of Spills Oil Eater Universal Sonic Oil Eater Universal Sonic Bonded pads and rolls provide the solu- tion for a variety of spills tion for a variety of spills in manufacturing facilities, including oils, coolants, solvents, water coolants, solvents, water and even acids. The durable pads and rolls tear easily along their perforated seam to fit almost any space, especially leaks in hard- to-reach places. They ar to-reach places. They are constructed from a sing constructed from a single layer of high-quality uni layer of high-quality uniform polypropylene fibers tha polypropylene fibers that have been bonded toget have been bonded together using a high-loft proces using a high-loft process. The material is designed The material is designed to provide superior strengt provide superior strength and reduced linting. The line reduced linting. The line is available in a variety of weights in in a variety of weights in sizes from 15" × 18" pads to 30" × 150 × 18" pads to 30" × 150-ft. rolls. A sample is p × 18" pads to 30" × 150-ft. rolls. A sample is available upon request. :: Oil Eater 800-528-0334
