CA multifunction cutter capable of spot drilling, centering,
and chamfering, the C-Center-ing Cutter uses a specialized
insert that can start a hole
from a solid piece. It can also
perform spot drilling and 90-
deg. chamfering at the same
time or can strictly be used
for hole chamfering.
During spot drilling, the insert nose radius can be easily
chipped with general cutters
since the center has a peripheral speed of zero. The coolant hole in the cutter allows
cooling of the cutting edge,
which reaches high temperatures during spot drilling, and
enables immediate chip evacuation to prevent chipping
during spot drilling.
BIG KAISER PRECISION
MÄGERLE MFP 51 combines grinding with conventional machining operations within
one production system. This flexible machine comes equipped with either 5 or 6 axes
for grinding, milling, and drilling operations to process parts in single clampings for im-
proved accuracy and output.
In its standard configuration, the machine includes a high-precision 12,000-rpm spindle
and an integrated 66-position tool changer for efficient machining of multiple workpieces
without the need for complete tooling changes. The coolant nozzle features 2-axis control
for full freedom of movement and precise positioning of coolant delivery to the tool and/
An overhead grinding wheel dresser is integrated into the machine’s grinding support to

shorten process times. Options include an RFID-based identification system for grinding
wheels and tools to eliminate errors when entering tool data in the machine.
The Helios TM 200-R3 gear deburring machine is perfect for job shops
with gears up to 7.8-in. in diameter, as it features CNC automatic loading/
unloading to/from flexible carousel-type magazines. The TM 200-R3 uses
4 work stations with cutoff wheels, high-speed end mills, and/or brushes to produce finished parts
approximately every 20 (3-in.
diameter parts) to 55 seconds
( 7.8-in. diameter parts). The
dual rotary magazines each
comprise eight easily adjustable towers. Each tower can
hold parts up to 17.7-in. high.
This allows the machine to deburr unattended for hours.
The TM 200-R3 is designed
for easy setups and adjustments; changeovers can
be completed in under 30
minutes, which minimizes machine idle time. With
complete control of tool pressures, speeds, and positions,
a wide variety of components
can be processed.

BENCHTOP CMM PROVIDES FLEXIBILITY
Optiv Performance 322 is a customizable benchtop CMM with a small foot-
print and convenient upgradability which caters to a variety of applications.
Weighing under 400 lb., the fixed bridge and moving table-type machine
is light enough to be placed directly on existing workbenches and relocated
without recalibration. In addition to saving floorspace, the machine allows for
increased accuracy and repeatability at high speed (300 mm/s) and acceleration due to the stiffness of its granite construction.
The CMM features advanced temperature compensation technology that
calculates a correction value for measurement deviations to ensure users get
consistently stable results. The Optiv Performance 322 is ideal for the inspection of sheet metal stampings, injection-molded plastic parts, profile scanning,
and more applications.
