A Variety of Carbon and Alloy Steel Rounds and Shapes Booth 922 Taubensee Steel and Wire, the steel wire and cold-drawn carbon and alloy bar company, will display its Cold Finished Bar product line. The company offers carbon and alloy steel rounds and shapes from 1/16" to 3 1 / 2 " in diameter and can offer 1" through 24 ft. in length. Customers can choose from versatile 1018 to 1541, all produced to explicit specifications for controlled chemistry, cleanliness, improved hardening capabilities and machinability, the company says. For maximum machinability, the company offers grades such as 12L14 and 1215. :: Taubensee Steel & Wire 800-459-5101, Additive System Designed for Serialized Production Booth 745 Renishaw additive manufacturing system brings additive produc- tion of metal components to the shop floor. New file preparation software allows for tighter integration into the machine control for quick, accurate review of build files. Designed and engineered with serialized production in mind, the RenAM 500M additive manufacturing system builds complex metallic components directly from CAD using metal powder bed fusion technology. The additive manufacturing system is first in a family of products based around Renishaw's optical systems and control technology and offers unparalleled engineering with effi- cient, ergonomic design and safety features, as well as intuitive and automated capabilities. It is especially useful for industrial produc- tion application, and each system can be dedicated to a single material type for a lights-out manufacturing environment. :: Renishaw Inc. 847-286-9953, Backworking Swiss-Type Spindle Promotes Surface Quality in Micro Milling Booth 369 Ibag North America will feature the new 25-mm backwork- ing spindle designed for Star Swiss-type machines that features 60,000 rpm with grease-packed lubrication and 80,000 rpm with oil-mist lubrication. This HSC (high-speed cutting) motor spindle is designed for machining applications involving micro milling and drilling tools as well as engraving and fine milling. The spindle features rigid precision bearings near the spindle nose to enhance true running, ensuring better surface quality and greater machining accuracy. In addition, Ibag offers a ready-to-install kit for Micro Line spindles that includes the supply unit, all electrical and pneumatic lines to enable precision radial drilling, milling and tapping, expand- ing overall turning center capability. The company also offers a full line of high-speed machine tool spindles with complete repair and rebuilding services as well as Witte vacuum workholding systems to serve metalworking manu- facturers and precision product and component applications. :: IBAG North America 203-407-0397, Boring Bars with Coolant Through Reduces Cutting Edge Temps Booth 915 Coolant Ring Technology (CRT) holders from Scientific Cutting Tools are made from high quality heat treated steel and come with a black oxide coating. They are engineered to allow for better coolant pene- tration deep into the bore, reducing temperature at the cutting edge, the company says. The overhang of the tools used with the holders is infinitely adjustable rather than fixed, allowing for maximum per- formance without chatter or other performance-related issues. The CRT holders can be used in conjunction with the company's qualified boring bars and/or qualified threading tools for quick change machining at optimal performance levels, according to the company. Qualified boring bars have an overall length that is qualified to ± 0.001" and a minimum bore diameter that is quali- fied to ± 0.0005". They can be used in conjunction with the CRT holders for quick-change setups or with our QHC holders when a backstop is used (sold separately). :: Scientific Cutting Tools 800-383-2244, :: 33 PMTS 2017
