IMTS - GAM with Jakob Antriebstechnik and GF Machining Solutions will be Speaking at IMTS 2016 Conference

On the topic of: Avoiding Collision Damage of Motor Spindles Through an Innovative Motor-Spindle Safety System

A short description:

Different causes lead to unforeseen contact situations between moving components in the working space of machine tools. These collisions can result in damage of the machine components. High cost and machine downtime are the consequences. This article presents a solution for the reduction of contact forces in case of collision. The damages of the machine structure and the main components like the motor spindle can be successfully avoided. Further a modified mechanism with higher stiffness and better process properties of the protection system will be described and compared to the current status.
Date: Sep 14, 2016
Time: 3:15 PM
Location: W193-A
This technology will be shown at IMTS 2016 and installed on GF Machining Solutions high performance milling centers model Mikron HPM 800 U ST with crash demonstrations several times per day. GF Machining Solutions is located at S-8754. In addition, FFG MAG will have the spindle protection system displayed at IMTS in their booth S-8129. This unit has been successfully tested in their Specht HMC 600.

EXAIR Corporation - CE Compliant Cold Gun

EXAIR Corporation - CE Compliant Cold Gun

In addition to producing a cold, quiet stream of air to reduce heat buildup on machining operations, EXAIR's Cold Gun Aircoolant System™ has also met the rigorous safety, health, and environmental standards of the European Union in order to attain the CE mark. The Cold Gun is a low cost alternative to expensive mist systems. It eliminates the ongoing costs associated with the purchase, filtration and disposal of liquid coolants. In addition, there are no worker related health problems resulting from breathing airborne coolants or slipping on wet shop floors. The Cold Gun Aircoolant System incorporates a stainless steel vortex tube to convert an ordinary supply of compressed air into a cold 20°F (-7°C) air stream at one end and a hot exhaust at the other. There are no moving parts to wear out. The Cold Gun now features an improved muffler on the hot air exhaust to reduce the noise level to a quiet 70 dBA.
