Proper selection and economics of lift-up chip conveyors

With a variety of materials (i.e.: steel, cast iron, aluminum, non-metallic, mixed, etc.), associated chip configurations (i.e.: long & curly, stringy, “bird-nests”, broken, etc.) and coolants in today’s manufacturing environment, selecting the “right” lift-up chip conveyor (LUCC) can be a challenge. This webinar addresses the major factors (i.e.: material, chip types, volumes, coolant, filtration, maintenance, etc.) that must be considered when selecting a LUCC for metal cutting applications. Various different LUCC designs (i.e.: Hinged-belt, scraper, magnetic, combination, etc.) and the associated economics will also be discussed.

Die Mold Automation: Achieving 80% machine utilization rates through systemic planning, scheduling and management.

It is now practical to realize dramatic improvements in machine utilization rates from a traditional level of 30%, up to and exceeding 80%, even in the manufacture of low volume, high precision, discreet die or mold components. This can be achieved through a systematic approach of programming, integrated and standardized tooling, work/machine scheduling, as well as management of data and work flow. Learn about these methods and how to implement them in this webinar.

Broken Tool detection: Good, Better, Best

Broken tool detection can be very beneficial – insuring that the tool is functional - and preventing potentially dangerous, and costly, machine “accidents” part quality issues and lost production. However, broken tool detection – if not implemented correctly - could also increase part cycle times – escalating manufacturing costs. This webinar focuses on various methodologies, techniques, tools (i.e.: “Good – Better – Best”) and the latest technology developments (including digital imaging) in broken tool detection.
