A new version of the 800 series, known as 800 Series Hybrid, seeks to overcome the challenges associated withstandard extrusion applications such as difficult-to-process materials and demanding applications where there iszero fault tolerance. The challenge was to create a hybrid design that incorporates the benefits of layer overlappingwhile reducing unnecessary complexity and making the technology more cost-affordable. This was achieved by overlapping layers in each semi-deflector, using a single cone.
Features of the 800 Series Hybrid include eliminating weld lines in materials; reduced sensitivity to changes in vis-
cosity; reduced sensitivity to changes in line speed; myriad material and multi-layer application possibilities; works
in all tubing and jacketing applications with a wide range of materials; and more.
The 800 Series Hybrid extrusion tool reduces stagnation since overlapping layers are more inherently balancedthan single layers and also because each semi-deflector is “tuned to flush.” Conventional deflectors must simultaneously achieve a balance between flushing, balancing, and eliminating the weld line. There is less difference betweenthe slowest moving material and the fastest moving material in the deflector channels, thus making the viscositymore consistent in the deflector.

5-AXIS UNIVERSAL MACHINING CENTER
G350 5-Axis Universal Machining Centerfeatures a compact design, maximum milling performance, high visibility, and optimized work area access. The G350 is idealfor use in aerospace, die and mold industriesor medical applications.
G350 delivers a unique machine concept; three linear and two rotary axespermit 5-axis simultaneous machining andsimultaneous interpolation. The machine’sunique axis arrangement permits upside down machining, offering almostlimitless possibilities for part machining. Meanwhile, the horizontal spindleposition permits the longest possible Z-travel path and optimum chip fall.
The unique arrangement of the three linear axes minimizes the distancebetween the guides and the machining point (TCP), lending the machineconsiderable stability. Thanks to the machining center’s special axis concept, the full tool length can be employed in any axis position, even withmaximum part size. This “tunnel” concept provides the basis—even withextremely long tools—for being able to swivel and machine the largest possible component within the work area without collision.
GRINDING MACHINE TAKES ON CARBIDE
The GT-610 EZ Centerless Grinding Machine excels at thrufeed grinding hard materials
such as steel, carbide, PCD inserts, and technical ceramics while operating on a much small-
er footprint than the competition.
It has the ability to produce G-ratios that can exceed those of machines twice its size.
When running super abrasives, a variable frequency drive on the work wheel spindle is
available to increase wheel surface feet.
Built on a granite bed, the GT-610 EZ brings slide motion control to the operator at an
affordable price point. Slide positioning allows for precise diameter control on close-tol-
erance components. The machine is also capable of gauge feedback for even more precise
Both the template tracing work wheel and template tracing regulating wheel dressersallow for the dressing of shallow profiles. Available with a variable frequency drive onthe work wheel spindle for increased wheel surface feet when running super abrasivessuch as vitrified CBN. Spindle RPM can be varied depending on the wheel type and wheeldressing parameters.
ADVANCED FIBER LASER SYSTEM
Designed to address the next generation oflaser processing challenges, the LASERDYNE 811employs the most current hardware and softwarecomponents for flexible precision laser processing in an affordable compact platform.
The machine has the necessary flexibility andprecision to perform optimized laser processingon welding, drilling, cutting, and DED additivemanufacturing applications for small to medi-um-size workpieces. The machine is designed totake full advantage of the BeamDirector whichhas 90 rpm rotational speed and control repeatability of 15 arcsecs. In addition, it supports laserprocessing from 90 to 10-deg. off the surface of apart all the way along the axis of travel.
The S94P CNC provides control over the motionsystem and processes the parameters to maximize process quality while providingefficient laser processing. The controller can provide real-time pulse by pulse control,including a unique shape for each individual laser pulse and supports seven axes ofsimultaneous motion and additional axis as required by automation.
