Turning Center Achieves 5-Micron Tolerances Booth 501 The Hardinge Conquest H51 lathe is capable of turn tolerances down to traditional grinding levels of 5 microns, according to the company. The machine features a 20-hp, 5,000-rpm A2-6" main spindle with a 2" bar and 8" chuck capacity. It offers a generous maximum turning diameter of 12.3" and a maximum turning length of 25.5". The 12-station turret offers 1 / 2 -station indexing for as many as 24 tools. The machine offers a wide variety of standard features such as through-tool coolant, bar feed and chip conveyor interfaces, three-position stack light, PCMCIA memory card, USB capability, rigid tapping and others including machine crash protection. :: Hardinge Inc., 800-843-8801 Use Statistical Learning to Catch Surface Defects Booth 1147 Mectron's Qualifier (Q-5000) inspection system uses its radial fire array for dimensional inspection of a variety of parts. The lasers can hold tolerances of ± 5 microns and hit 16 points of inspection for each part. Additionally, the unit has the capability to do metal- lurgical inspection using eddy current. The company has machines that inspect bearings, deep draw components, fasteners, power machined parts and more. The company's inspection systems are designed for speed and accuracy. The surface qualifier (SQ-7500) uses statistical learning to catch surface defects while rotating the part to achieve 360 degrees of inspection. The light tunnel illuminates defects as a camera takes more than 200 pictures a second. :: Mectron Engineering Co. Inc. 734-944-8777 Interchangeable Broach Toolholder for any ER Collet Chuck Booth 808 Somma Tool Company offers an inclusive broach toolholder de- signed to celebrate collet chuck diversity. Interchangeable among any style ER collet chuck, the compact, adjustment-free offset ro- tary broach toolholder will thread onto existing ER (16, 20, 25 and 32) collet chucks and features a built-in 1-degree wobble cutting edge for offset rotary broaching. The broaching holder allows the user to swap one holder among different style shanks such as round, Capto, VDI, Morse, CAT and NMTB taper. A single holder reduces the need for tool- holder adapter bushings, making it an economical and versatile alternative to other broaching systems. The holders use Somma Swiss broaches with 8-mm diameter shanks and 1 / 2 " diameter shank broaches (Somma and other brands). They are adjustment- free for on-center applications not requiring offset compensation. :: Somma Tool Co. Inc. 203-753-2114, 64 PRODUCTION MACHINING :: APRIL 2017 PMTS 2017: SHOW COVERAGE
