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 six tools. Features of the wheel spindle include HSK-E100 single spindle and a 2-position turret with indexing angle 0 and 22.5.” 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
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. Newly developed, optional automated rotary fixture allows 360°
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.
