PRODUCTS 48 PRODUCTION MACHINING :: OCTOBER 2017 Micrometer Simplifies Measuring Mahr Inc.'s Micromar 40 EWRi is the latest addition to its integrated wireless family of products, including digital calipers, indicators and depth gages. Measurement data is transferred to an i-Stick on a computer without any inter- fering data cables, and MarCom software makes data acquisition simple, the company says. Measuring data can be transmitted directly into MS Excel or via a keyboard code into any Windows program or existing SPC application. According to the company, the reference system in the 40 EWRi makes handling the microm- eter simple since the zero position is set only once. This setting remains stored for all fur- ther measurements. Also, a hold function (digital lock) allows measured values to be frozen. The micrometer is equipped with an inductive measuring system and Class IP65 protection against dust, coolants and lubricants, the company says. :: Mahr Inc., 401-784-3100, System Designed for Confined Space Machining Benz Inc.'s NanoFix modular quick-change system for Swiss lathe live and static tools applications is engineered to provide all the char- acteristics and benefits of the Benz Solidfix modular toolchanging system, but within a configuration ideal for confined space machin- ing. The system is designed for Swiss-type tooling with a minimum spindle distance of 22 mm and makes it simple to change tools inside the Swiss lathe in as little as 15 seconds, the company says. Using a Torx locking mechanism, the NanoFix adapter can be released and removed with one hand and a slight turn of the wrist. According to the com- pany, NanoFix is an alternative for hard-to-reach ER collets while providing more rigidity than other quick-change devices. It features a high concentricity of 5 mm on 30 mm, repeatable accuracy, short projection and play-free centering of tapering. Tool changes can be facilitated with one hand. Nanofix adapt- ers can be preset outside the machine offering the ultimate in production flexibility. :: Benz Inc., 866-852-2369, Software Predicts How Machines Will Behave Camplete Solutions Inc.'s TruePath 2018 suite of tools is designed to take customers from the CAM system to the five-axis machine, the company says. With its integrated and fully customizable post-processor, TruePath allows NC programs to be outputted according to the customer. Five-axis simulation, visualization and verification tools provide a prediction of how a machine will behave. The release includes a redesigned user interface and a long list of features. According to the company, the redesigned user interface makes navigating common tasks easier and quicker to perform, and the software is more intuitive to learn. :: Camplete Solutions Inc. 519-725-2557,
