The spindle is the heart of a machine tool, and when it gives out, repair and rebuild can resuscitate it for continued service and productivity. But these are delicate operations, and they must be performed according to specific process procedures using the best equipment and replacement parts. Optimal results are achieved when the professionals who originally produced the spindle are the ones to repair and rebuild it.
John Hart is dedicated to the continued improvement and investment in their service and support infrastructure, and have marked that commitment by opening a second office in New South Wales, located in Newcastle.
The market for sheet metal laser cutting machines has developed rapidly in recent years, with new types of machines being marketed by sheet metal laser cutting manufacturers, that are revolutionising the laser cutting process and the choices that users can make. When specifying machines, users have three choices, dependent upon their own specific requirements, namely the traditional CO2 sheet metal laser cutting machines; the next generation fibre laser cutters, and the revolutionary direct diode laser or DDL.
Multi-Tasking machine tool technology has revolutionized manufacturing and continues to play a critical role in today’s truly progressive machine shops. Besides the amazing gains in productivity, Multi-Tasking technology has catapulted machine shops, especially smaller ones, to levels where they can easily machine the most complex parts in the world and do so cost-effectively.
Despite the fact that Multi-Tasking technology has become increasingly common in machine shops around the world, many manufacturers still believe such machines are costly and a challenge to integrate into existing processes and automation. Where these myths arose remains a mystery, but the facts are easy to find, especially when discussing Mazak Multi-Tasking.
Ever since the creation of the first all-metal lathe in 1751, manufacturers have depended on highly flexible and precise “mother machines,” the metal cutting equipment used to produce all other factory equipment. More than 200 years later, Mazak contributed to this effort with its Slant Turn 40 ATC Mill Center, which gave manufacturers the ability to mill and turn on a single machine platform. Today, Mazak offers a comprehensive range of solutions – the Five Levels of Multi-Tasking – designed to ensure that each manufacturer has an option that suits their unique needs.
Multi-Tasking machines are extremely effective because of their ability to mill and turn part features with high accuracy and high quality, while cutting down on the number of machines required in a manufacturing facility and reducing labour cost per part.
Mazak offer a wide and diverse selection of Multi-Tasking machines with differing capabilities. Whether you are producing small parts with unit cycle times of under a minute, or large, complex components that require a full week of machining, Mazak have a solution to boost your efficiency, flexibility and productivity.
The newest MAZATROL SmoothAi CNC system designed to provide you unsurpassed productivity by faster setups and cycle times, improved surface finishes, high accuracy machining as well as incomparable ease of operation.
OPEN MIND offers a number of strategies for high-precision processing as standard functions within it hyperMILL CAD/CAM suite. hyperMILL allows tolerances in the µm range and ultra-smooth surfaces to be created. This often makes reworking processes like secondary polishing or hand finishing obsolete.
John Hart is Losma’s Australian sales partner for their range of machine tool filtration systems.
Losma has been designing and building filtration systems for machine tools since 1974 and is certified to ISO 9001:2008. It is the only company to offer a truly comprehensive service to resolve all contamination problems in the industrial workplace and it is the only one with consolidated know-how of both oil mist collection and liquid coolant filtration.
With nearly one million diode lasers melting the material, the build process is so productive that it can serve as an injection molding alternative for many applications. EOS LaserProFusion technology produces up to 10 times faster.
