Suspension arm


Task

  • Tool restrictions, unfavourable space to work and
    machining allowances characterize this component
  • Short cycle times are an every-day challenge
  • Use on special machine
  • Reduction in clamping devices by using multifunctional
    tools (partly with reverse machining)
  • Saving in tools, and therefore magazine spaces, on the
    special machine because of high combination facility


Solution

  • Modular combination tools with multi machining capability
  • Maximum number of cutting edges for high cutting
    speeds
  • Inserts with advanced tool life with maximum number of
    cutting edges for economic machining
  • Tools with tangential technology
    - Maximum feed rates (reduction in main time)
    - Use of maximum number of cutting edges (economy)
    - Production reliability even with unfavourable conditions
  • Modular, stepped reaming tools with multiple cutting
    edges to reduce cycle time
  • Extensive tool trials in the TechCenter
