Guill Tool, the global leader in extrusion tooling, recently announced the purchase of a CNC grinder and a CT scanner.
The company’s rheology lab measures the flow characteristics of plastics and rubber to better predict how the customer’s material will flow through the extrusion dies before they’re made. Together with the scanner, simulation greatly reduces the number of physical reworks needed.
Sold by DMG Mori, the TAYIYO KOKI, is a CNC vertical multi-process machine grinding ID, OD, and face by one-time chucking. The ATC unit stores up to 6 tools. Features of the wheel spindle include HSK-E100 single spindle and a 2-position turret with indexing angles of 0 and 22.5 inches (0 and 572 millimeters).
An optional touch sensor for measuring ID, OD, and face is available, as well as a scale feedback control for the X-axis. Control for the Z-axis is also available upon request. Additional features include a single-point dresser (rotary dresser as an option) and a work spindle fixed-position stop.
Vertical Mate 85 is ideal for applications such as planetary gears, spindle housings, and bevel gears.
In the job shop, Guill offers CNC grinding technology with full automation in lights-out mode as well as custom service for dies and superior material quality, including stainless steel manufacturing and fabrication.
Capable of high-definition imaging, the IM-8000 Series Image Dimension Measurement System has triple the detection performance without sacrificing its simple operation. With a 20-megapixel CMOS sensor and a new algorithm for stable, edge detection high-accuracy measurement on up to 300 features within seconds is available. A newly developed, optional automated rotary fixture allows 360-degree, multi-surface measurement on diverse part sizes and shapes. Accurate and repeatable measurements are instantly achieved with the ‘place and press’ operation. The fast, accurate, and easy-to-use interface solves several measurement-related problems.
