It is the simple concept that the closer a forging is in size to the finished part that will be machined from it, the shorter machining time and less material waste that results.</p>
  56. <p><a href="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/additive-versus-subtractive-manufacturing.jpg" data-wpel-link="internal"><img decoding="async" width="700" height="344" class="size-large wp-image-133407 aligncenter" src="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/additive-versus-subtractive-manufacturing-700x344.jpg" alt="" srcset="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/additive-versus-subtractive-manufacturing-700x344.jpg 700w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/additive-versus-subtractive-manufacturing-250x123.jpg 250w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/additive-versus-subtractive-manufacturing-768x377.jpg 768w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/additive-versus-subtractive-manufacturing-120x59.jpg 120w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/additive-versus-subtractive-manufacturing.jpg 831w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></a></p>
  57. <p>In the aerospace industry the ratio difference between the starting material and the finished part is referred to as the buy-to-fly ratio. For some manufacturers that ratio can exceed 10 to 1, investing over 80% of the machining time in excessive material removal/roughing operations.</p>
  58. <p>The goal for forgings, however, have been to provide enough quality material in the forging (casting) to produce the part, forging yards or casting foundries have not been provided with a good business case to reducing the buy-to-fly ratios.</p>
  59. <p>In recent years, there has been a palpitating tension; an unspoken excitement amongst machinists, as the additive manufacturing industry makes its turn towards true Near-Net-Shape parts. Additive manufacturing is emerging as a viable production scale manufacturing method for production ready parts.</p>
  60. <p>This is a significant leap from its humble origins in plastic prototyping scaled models, visual aids, and toy parts. Combined with more advanced additive processes like welding, wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAM), binder jetting technology, carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP), friction stir welding, and robotics; additive manufacturing is making its mark as the mode of future operations.</p>
  61. <p>Creating additive parts with industry relevant metals such as steel, aluminum, titanium, and stainless steel (and many others) is now a mainstream deliverable by the additive industry. Combining these additively manufactured parts with the appropriate post-processing treatments can yield material strength and integrity on par with any traditional raw material manufacturing technology.</p>
  62. <p>Additive manufacturing still has challenges to overcome though.</p>
  63. <p>Delivering high volume of parts at the pace of forgings, meeting finish tolerances, and surface finish, and automating post-production processes all continue to be opportunities for improvement. Nevertheless, the last decade has seen tremendous improvements in this arena of manufacturing, and more are on the horizon. The big observation is that additive manufacturing can create metal parts, with material integrity, and deliver true Near-Net-Shape often with buy-to-fly ratios of 3:1 and even 2:1.</p>
  64. <p>But this in no way suggests that machining applications are on the way out.</p>
  65. <p>Additive and subtractive manufacturing processes need not be looked upon in separate competitive silos. In fact, machining will be a vital, complementary part of the future state of additive manufacturing. Machining is on the verge of a significant technological revolution to accommodate the demand for this change.</p>
  66. <p>As additively manufactured Near-Net-Shape parts become a viable starting point for machining operations, the need for heavy roughing will take a back seat to advancements in semi-finishing and finishing operations.</p>
  67. <p>Imagine a future state where roughing operations are obsolete. Machine builders will be challenged to deliver machine tools with significantly faster spindle speeds and axis drives for heightened feed rates, without sacrificing accuracy.</p>
  68. <p>This, in turn, drives the need for enhanced controller capability. The combination of lightened cutter engagement conditions and heightened speeds will place a higher emphasis on spindle power rather than torque. Cutting tool manufacturers will need cutting materials able to survive machining at heightened speeds and feeds.</p>
  69. <p>Ultimately these changes must be coupled with the best practices in machining (such as proper presetting, coolant delivery, balancing, etc.), calling for an increased focus on advanced training. These challenges are by no means easy.</p>

They play a vital role in joining two parts together. However, understanding the terminology used in threads can be confusing for those unfamiliar with the field. In this article, we will discuss some of the essential terms related to screw threads.</p>
  92. <h2><strong>Pitch Diameter</strong></h2>
  93. <p><a href="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Pitch-Diameter-1.png" data-wpel-link="internal"><img decoding="async" width="700" height="700" class="size-large wp-image-133377 aligncenter" src="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Pitch-Diameter-1-700x700.png" alt="" srcset="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Pitch-Diameter-1-700x700.png 700w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Pitch-Diameter-1-250x250.png 250w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Pitch-Diameter-1-150x150.png 150w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Pitch-Diameter-1-768x768.png 768w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Pitch-Diameter-1-120x120.png 120w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Pitch-Diameter-1.png 1200w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></a></p>
  94. <p>The pitch diameter (also referred to as the effective diameter) is the diameter of an imaginary cylinder, which intersects it so that the distance between two intersection points at opposite flanks of a thread flanks equals half the nominal pitch of the thread (This definition is valid only for n parallel threads).</p>
  95. <p>The allowance (see below) between the pitch diameters of the female and male parts of a threading assembly determines whether they can be successfully mated together.</p>
  96. <h2><strong>Major Diameter</strong></h2>
  97. <p><a href="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Major-Diameter-1.png" data-wpel-link="internal"><img decoding="async" width="700" height="700" class="size-large wp-image-133379 aligncenter" src="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Major-Diameter-1-700x700.png" alt="" srcset="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Major-Diameter-1-700x700.png 700w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Major-Diameter-1-250x250.png 250w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Major-Diameter-1-150x150.png 150w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Major-Diameter-1-768x768.png 768w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Major-Diameter-1-120x120.png 120w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Major-Diameter-1.png 1200w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></a></p>
  98. <p>The major diameter of a thread is the diameter of an imaginary cylinder that touches the largest diameter of a thread. The nominal value of the major diameter equals the nominal thread size. For example, in a UNC 1/4-20 thread, the nominal major diameter is 1/4″ (6.35 mm)</p>
  99. <p><strong>External Thread</strong></p>
  100. <ul>
  101. <li>The major diameter is measured on the crest of the thread.</li>
  102. <li>The major diameter is a critical dimension to control. Together with the pitch diameter, it forms the addendum of the thread and controls if the screw would fit on a bolt. The permissible range for the major diameter is derived from its class.</li>
  103. </ul>
  104. <p><strong>Internal Thread:</strong></p>
  105. <ul>
  106. <li>The major diameter is measured on the root of the thread.</li>
  107. <li>The major diameter is not a critical dimension. It only has a requirement to be equal to or larger than the nominal thread diameter.</li>
  108. </ul>
  109. <h2><strong>Minor Diameter:</strong></h2>
  110. <p><a href="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Minor-Diameter-1.png" data-wpel-link="internal"><img decoding="async" width="700" height="700" class="size-large wp-image-133378 aligncenter" src="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Minor-Diameter-1-700x700.png" alt="" srcset="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Minor-Diameter-1-700x700.png 700w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Minor-Diameter-1-250x250.png 250w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Minor-Diameter-1-150x150.png 150w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Minor-Diameter-1-768x768.png 768w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Minor-Diameter-1-120x120.png 120w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Minor-Diameter-1.png 1200w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></a></p>
  111. <p>The minor diameter is the diameter of an imaginary cylinder that touches the smallest diameter of a thread. It depends on the pitch and the thread&#8217;s angle.</p>
  112. <p><strong>External Thread:</strong></p>
  113. <ul>
  114. <li>The minor diameter is measured on the root of the thread.</li>
  115. <li>The minor diameter is not a critical dimension. It only has a maximum requirement to ensure that the root is relieved.</li>
  116. </ul>
  117. <p><strong>Internal Thread:</strong></p>
  118. <ul>
  119. <li>The minor diameter is measured on the crest of the thread.</li>
  120. <li>The minor diameter is a critical dimension. Together with the pitch diameter, it controls if the bolt would fit on a screw.</li>

  124. <p><a href="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Lead-and-Pitch-1.png" data-wpel-link="internal"><img decoding="async" width="700" height="700" class="size-large wp-image-133383 aligncenter" src="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Lead-and-Pitch-1-700x700.png" alt="" srcset="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Lead-and-Pitch-1-700x700.png 700w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Lead-and-Pitch-1-250x250.png 250w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Lead-and-Pitch-1-150x150.png 150w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Lead-and-Pitch-1-768x768.png 768w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Lead-and-Pitch-1-120x120.png 120w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Lead-and-Pitch-1.png 1200w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></a></p>
  125. <p>Pitch is the axial distance between adjacent repeating features on a mechanical element. (e.g., screw thread, knur, saw blade)</p>
  126. <p>The lead is the linear distance the thread travels due to a full 360° rotation.</p>
  127. <p>In a single start thread, the lead equals the pitch. In multi-start threads, the lead equals the pitch multiplied by the number of starts. This means that in a multi-start thread, the lead will always be larger than the pitch.</p>
  128. <p>&nbsp;</p>
  129. <h2><strong>Lead Angle</strong></h2>
  130. <p><a href="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Lead-Angle-1.png" data-wpel-link="internal"><img decoding="async" width="700" height="700" class="size-large wp-image-133381 aligncenter" src="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Lead-Angle-1-700x700.png" alt="" srcset="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Lead-Angle-1-700x700.png 700w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Lead-Angle-1-250x250.png 250w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Lead-Angle-1-150x150.png 150w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Lead-Angle-1-768x768.png 768w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Lead-Angle-1-120x120.png 120w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Lead-Angle-1.png 1200w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></a></p>
  131. <p>The lead angle measures the inclination of a screw helix from a plane that is perpendicular to the screw&#8217;s axis. In more simple words, it is the proportion between the screw&#8217;s lead and its diameter.</p>
  132. <p>As seen in this chart, a screw with a fine pitch and a large diameter will have a small lead angle, whereas a screw with a coarse pitch and a small diameter will have a large lead angle.</p>
  133. <p style="text-align: center;"><iframe title="YouTube video player" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/lvfHRZ2O0bo?si=UBP1ewSpwH-dIoUJ" width="560" height="315" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"><span data-mce-type="bookmark" style="display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;" class="mce_SELRES_start"></span></iframe></p>
  134. <h2><strong>Length of engagement</strong></h2>
  135. <p><a href="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Length-of-Engamement-1.png" data-wpel-link="internal"><img decoding="async" width="700" height="700" class="size-large wp-image-133380 aligncenter" src="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Length-of-Engamement-1-700x700.png" alt="" srcset="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Length-of-Engamement-1-700x700.png 700w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Length-of-Engamement-1-250x250.png 250w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Length-of-Engamement-1-150x150.png 150w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Length-of-Engamement-1-768x768.png 768w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Length-of-Engamement-1-120x120.png 120w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Length-of-Engamement-1.png 1200w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></a></p>
  136. <p>Length of Engagement is the axial distance of full threads in contact between the male and female parts of a threading assembly. It is usually measured in multiples of the pitch. For example, 5P means a length of engagement of five times the pitch.</p>
  137. <h2><strong>Allowance</strong></h2>
  138. <p><a href="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/AllowanceToleranceClass-1.png" data-wpel-link="internal"><img decoding="async" width="700" height="700" class="size-large wp-image-133382 aligncenter" src="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/AllowanceToleranceClass-1-700x700.png" alt="" srcset="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/AllowanceToleranceClass-1-700x700.png 700w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/AllowanceToleranceClass-1-250x250.png 250w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/AllowanceToleranceClass-1-150x150.png 150w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/AllowanceToleranceClass-1-768x768.png 768w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/AllowanceToleranceClass-1-120x120.png 120w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/AllowanceToleranceClass-1.png 1200w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></a></p>
  139. <p>Thread allowance is the distance in maximum material condition between the nominal thread diameter and the crest of an external thread.</p>
  140. <p>The thread class defines it, and it indicates how tight or loose the thread is when assembled.</p>
  141. <p>A screw assembly with a small allowance provides better accuracy but is harder to assemble. A larger one is easier to assemble but provides lower accuracy.</p>
  142. <p>The allowance size does <strong>not influence</strong> a thread&#8217;s <strong>production difficulty</strong> or price.</p>
  143. <h2><strong>Tolerance</strong></h2>
  144. <p>The width of the tolerance field of a diameter on the actual thread profile. (Pitch, Major &amp; Minor diameters).</p>
  145. <p>A wide tolerance is easier and cheaper to produce. However, it results in a larger spread between threads. On the other hand, a narrow tolerance is more challenging and expensive to produce, but it yields a smaller spread between threads.</p>
  146. <h2><strong>Class</strong></h2>
  147. <p>To manufacture or measure a thread, one has to know the maximum and minimum permissible values of the basic dimensions. These values are calculated according to the thread class. The class is a number-letter code added after the thread&#8217;s description. For example 1A or 2C in inch threads and H7 or g6 in metric threads. The code indicates which allowance and tolerance (see above) should be used to calculate the maximum and minimum allowed diameters.</p>

With the new WPG 7 CNC external grinding machine, EMAG Weiss demonstrates another way of grinding workpieces with a maximum length of 250 millimeters. The very small machine requires only a minimal footprint, but at the same time features a whole range of high-tech components for flexibility and productivity. What is important in detail?</strong></p>
  169. <div id="attachment_132992" style="width: 710px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><a href="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I597-1.jpg" data-wpel-link="internal"><img decoding="async" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-132992" class="wp-image-132992 size-large" src="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I597-1-700x525.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="525" srcset="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I597-1-700x525.jpg 700w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I597-1-250x187.jpg 250w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I597-1-768x576.jpg 768w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I597-1-1536x1152.jpg 1536w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I597-1-2048x1535.jpg 2048w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I597-1-120x90.jpg 120w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></a><p id="caption-attachment-132992" class="wp-caption-text">The small &#8220;easy to set up machine&#8221; has a footprint of just 1.8 x 2.4 m.</p></div>
  170. <p>If you want to finish small and medium-sized components, you may not need a large grinding machine, is the simple credo of EMAG Weiss with regard to the WPG 7 CNC. The purely external cylindrical grinding machine fits on two Euro pallets and can be easily transported to its location by crane as an easy to set up machine. The grinding process can then be started immediately &#8211; without compromising on quality or process reliability, as the WPG 7 CNC has negligible heat build-up thanks to its rigid design. In addition, high-precision in-process measurement with proven Marposs technology, which works independently of the cycle time during the machining process, is available as an option.</p>
  171. <div id="attachment_132995" style="width: 710px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><a href="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I616-1.jpg" data-wpel-link="internal"><img decoding="async" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-132995" class="wp-image-132995 size-large" src="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I616-1-700x934.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="934" srcset="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I616-1-700x934.jpg 700w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I616-1-250x333.jpg 250w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I616-1-768x1024.jpg 768w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I616-1-576x768.jpg 576w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I616-1-1152x1536.jpg 1152w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I616-1-1535x2048.jpg 1535w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I616-1-120x160.jpg 120w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I616-1.jpg 1770w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></a><p id="caption-attachment-132995" class="wp-caption-text">The machine is ideal for the production of many small shafts and pinions in medium quantities.</p></div>
  172. <p><strong>Dialog interface ensures productivity</strong></p>
  173. <p>Straight or angled external grinding wheels are used, which have a maximum diameter of 500 millimetres, and can of course also be profiled depending on the task. Conversely, this means that it is not possible to integrate an internal grinding wheel and there is no B-axis for swiveling the headstock. Instead, the rest of the WPG 7 CNC is a state-of-the-art solution including highly dynamic axes, a powerful and controllable grinding wheel drive and a workhead with stationary or live center (MK4/MK5 or W20/W25). The graphical dialog interface of the control panel is also important for the productivity of the solution. It is based on a Fanuc control system and considerably simplifies the input of technology parameters for certain cycles. The basic version of the control already includes all common grinding cycles.</p>
  174. <div id="attachment_132993" style="width: 710px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><a href="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I606-1.jpg" data-wpel-link="internal"><img decoding="async" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-132993" class="wp-image-132993 size-large" src="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I606-1-700x525.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="525" srcset="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I606-1-700x525.jpg 700w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I606-1-250x187.jpg 250w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I606-1-768x576.jpg 768w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I606-1-1536x1152.jpg 1536w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I606-1-2048x1535.jpg 2048w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/I606-1-120x90.jpg 120w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></a><p id="caption-attachment-132993" class="wp-caption-text">The grinding wheels in the WPG 7 CNC have a maximum diameter of 500 mm and a maximum width of 80 mm.</p></div>
  175. <p>Last but not least, many users are interested in the fact that EMAG Weiss offers this solution with automatic or manual loading. Many individual linkages can also be implemented around the machine because the specialists have developed their own linear gantry for the WPG 7 CNC, which is virtually integrated into the housing. It first removes the raw parts from an approximately two-meter-long chain conveyor belt, and then feeds them into the work area from the side at high speed. Once the process is complete, the finished parts are returned to the conveyor belt via a gantry. The whole process is controlled simply by a machine panel.</p>
  176. <p>&nbsp;</p>
  177. <p><strong>Already used extensively</strong></p>
  178. <p>Under these overall conditions, the WPG 7 CNC is an ideal solution for purely external grinding processes on smaller components with a maximum length of 250 millimetres and a maximum weight of 30 kilograms. Thanks to the existing automation solution, medium quantities can also be completed at high speed. Dynamic axes and drives ensure fast grinding processes and the intuitive dialog control ensures uncomplicated changeover processes. Current market successes show that this approach may interest many users since the machine is in frequent demand at EMAG Weiss and has a proven track record.</p>

Manufacturing Wellness is a relentless pursuit for improvement, made up of eight habits found in successful and resilient manufacturing companies. “Sustainability” and “eliminating waste” are the third and fourth habits of this mindset, allowing companies to drive sustainable progress toward a better tomorrow for people, industry and society at large.</p>
  208. <p>This commitment is underscored by the recent validation of Sandvik Coromant’s net zero target by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). As demand for sustainable products continues to grow, such certifications will become increasingly important for manufacturers looking to stay competitive in a transitioning market.</p>
  209. <p><strong>Developing digital capabilities to meet demand</strong></p>
  210. <p>2023 saw manufacturers feel the aftershocks of several supply chain issues. This particularly impacted the aerospace manufacturing sector, which was still in post-pandemic recovery mode.</p>
  211. <p>However, with demand bouncing back, there has been a revived need from airlines looking to expand or renew their fleets to accommodate the resurgence in passenger travel and to meet new environmental standards with more fuel-efficient aircraft. The industry’s growth in 2024 will likely depend on how well manufacturers and the broader ecosystem can adapt to these evolving challenges and opportunities.</p>
  212. <p>Aerospace manufacturers can increase their productivity by focusing on resilience, innovation, agility and sustainability. A key way to achieve this, especially for those involved in metal cutting processes, is to integrate digital manufacturing tools for enhanced operational efficiency.

Use cases include areas such as digital twins, computer numerical control (CNC) integration, process monitoring systems and cloud computing.</p>
  213. <p>Digital tools support “data-driven manufacturing,” the fifth of Sandvik Coromant’s Manufacturing Wellness habits, which helps businesses spot potential improvements and accelerate productivity from CAD to delivery. Processes that are informed by data can help improve equipment uptime and extend working life by enabling manufacturers to identify potential failures before they occur. As 2024 progresses, we are likely to see the increased adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) tools to analyze data, with this level of automation helping to meet renewed demand while reducing costs. Incorporating AI tools is a core part of the Manufacturing Wellness mindset, outlined in the second habit of “embracing new technology” and the eighth habit of “automation.”</p>
  214. <p><strong>Planning for flexible production</strong></p>
  215. <p>As well as allowing businesses to meet resurgent demand, digital manufacturing tools also facilitate the resource planning process for industries where demand is difficult to predict. This is particularly useful for automakers, who are facing increasing pressure to prepare for the upcoming phase-out of fossil fuel cars. It is important that manufacturers have sufficient EV capacity in time for the 2035 fossil fuel car ban in the U.K. and the EU, which has made resource planning difficult.</p>
  216. <p>Data-enabled manufacturing allows for more flexible production systems that can quickly adapt to changes in product design or customer demand, facilitating the production of customized or small-batch items without significant efficiency loss. Integrating digital tools with supply chain management systems can improve forecasting, reduce inventory levels and enhance coordination with suppliers and customers, leading to a more responsive and efficient supply chain.</p>
  217. <p>As the year progresses, the importance of industry trends such as sustainability, digitalization and demand forecasting will continue to grow. However, viewing these challenges as opportunities to innovate will help to develop successful, resilient manufacturers that thrive in 2024 and beyond.</p>

  239. <p>“As a result of our continuous research and development, the introduction of <em>hyper</em>MILL<sup>®</sup> 2024 offers our customers a breadth of core toolpath enhancements and new features to optimize the digital process chain and manufacturing operations,” said Mr. Alan Levine, Managing Director of OPEN MIND Technologies USA, Inc.</p>
  240. <p><strong><u>New and Enhanced CAM Capabilities</u></strong></p>
  241. <p>An <strong>Optimized Deep Hole Drilling</strong> CAM strategy offers improved machining reliability by providing a user-friendly interface with process-relevant parameters clearly defined on a new process tab. <strong><em>New</em></strong> capabilities enable coolant and dwell time stages to be identified, allow a chip break to be integrated into a drilling process, and more. A <strong><em>new </em></strong>single-tip gun drill tool simulation function provides precise collision checking and a detailed visualization of the stock removal.</p>
  242. <p>A <strong><em>new</em></strong> algorithm for 3-axis and 5-axis <strong>Rest Machining</strong> ensures automatic, complete detection of all rest material areas, in addition to optimized toolpath calculations for faster, reliable machining. Toolpaths are now optimally divided to ensure more efficient machining, and the detection of intersection areas where paths meet has been optimized for collision avoidance.</p>
  243. <div id="attachment_132983" style="width: 710px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><a href="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/CAM-Plan-1.jpg" data-wpel-link="internal"><img decoding="async" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-132983" class="wp-image-132983 size-large" src="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/CAM-Plan-1-700x565.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="565" srcset="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/CAM-Plan-1-700x565.jpg 700w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/CAM-Plan-1-250x202.jpg 250w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/CAM-Plan-1-768x620.jpg 768w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/CAM-Plan-1-1536x1240.jpg 1536w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/CAM-Plan-1-120x97.jpg 120w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/CAM-Plan-1.jpg 1759w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></a><p id="caption-attachment-132983" class="wp-caption-text">hyperMILL® “CAM Plan” calculates the optimum point distribution based on part topology data. hyperMILL® “CAM Plan” automatically creates cover surfaces for holes.</p></div>
  244. <p>An additional toolpath improvement is an <strong>enhanced path layout for the 3D Plane Machining cycle</strong>. The <strong><em>new </em></strong>strategy has a smoother path and fewer pick-ups. While the toolpath length (distance) may be longer in some cases, the machining time, as tested on a variety of NC controllers, has been reduced.</p>
  245. <p>A <strong><em>new, novel</em></strong> generation of programming assistance and analysis, “<strong>CAM Plan</strong>” is introduced in <em>hyper</em>MILL<sup>®</sup> 2024, simplifying various programming tasks and identifying possible sources of error. Predefined workflow steps safely guide users through the preparation and programming process, while the geometries and features required are automati cally created. Also, potential errors are flagged for removal such as double surfaces or gaps between model patches.</p>
  246. <p>Once the data is organized, the CAM workflow can be processed with more intelligence and higher efficiency. The first benefit from <em>hyper</em>MILL<sup>®</sup> CAM Plan is that component topology is analyzed to produce a precise toolpath that has command locations aligned with key geometric features and with optimized point distribution for milling. The result is improved surface finishes, easier processing by NC controllers, and reduced machining times.</p>
  247. <p>&nbsp;</p>
  248. <p><strong><u>Optimizing VIRTUAL Machining </u></strong></p>
  249. <p>For easy generation of 3-axis and 5-axis NC programs with axis change and an optimized use of the workspace, the NC Optimizer feature in the <strong><em>hyper</em>MILL<sup>®</sup> VIRTUAL Machining strategy </strong>now offers the option to transform X- and Y-axis movements into a single movement with the rotation axis in the table. By swapping axes, an XY movement is transformed into a simultaneous CX movement which eliminates rewind movements during machining.  This is especially impactful on machines that have a limited linear axis range.</p>
  250. <p>The <strong>reading back of measuring points</strong> when using <em>hyper</em>MILL<sup>®</sup> VIRTUAL Machining is a <strong><em>new</em></strong> feature that allows graphical representation of measured points on the part model, rather than comparing a list of measurement results. Users can also quickly identify measuring points that are out of tolerance on a 3D part model and compare trends over sequential measurements. As a result, it is much easier to analyze and compensate for inaccuracies and tool wear after milling.</p>

  389. <p>When turning aero-engine components, the surface requirements are high but no longer difficult to achieve, thanks to the new insertgrades GC1205 and GC1210. Together, they cover a large application area within last-stage machining (LSM) and intermediate-stage machining (ISM).</p>
  390. <p>There are several key features that help in working with the high-level performance of heat-resistant superalloy (HRSA) materials. A hard, fine-grained new substrate, the latest physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating technology and optimized edge-line integrity provide increased flank wear and secondary notch wear resistance, superior edge-line security and reduced flaking.</p>
  391. <p>“For our customers, this translates into possibilities to run the inserts at higher cutting speeds with GC1205 and increased tool life with GC1210. Additionally, it ensures consistent and predictable tool life while reaching the required surface integrity demands for critical aerospace components,” said Martin Saunders, global product application specialist for turning at Sandvik Coromant.</p>
  392. <p>Typical aero-engine components that the grades can machine are gas turbine discs, casings, blisks, spools, shafts and blades. But these grades also prove to be a great choice in demanding applications such as power generation turbines and medical implants made of cobalt-chrome. Martin Saunders continues: “The release of these two new grades offers the opportunity to increase cutting data while also prolonging tool life predominantly in last-stage machining and intermediate-stage machining of aerospace and medical components.”</p>
  393. <p>The grades complement each other thanks to an overlap in the assortment. GC1205 is a finishing grade for machined surfaces in LSM and ISM applications. GC1210 complements GC1205 when more toughness is required and is mainly used in ISM applications for nonmachined surfaces.</p>

  415. <p>Greer, SC – <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><a href="http://www.walter-tools.com" data-wpel-link="external" target="_blank" rel="nofollow external">Walter</a></span> has developed its Tiger·tec<sup>®</sup> Gold WMP45G button insert specifically for turbine blade machining, including the blade, blade root and blade head, for use with its F2334R copy milling cutter. Two insert sizes are available: the 10 mm ROMX10T3M0 and the 12 mm ROMX1204M0.</p>
  416. <p>The WMP45G comes standard as a sintered insert because sintered inserts have an attractive price-to-performance ratio, making them preferred by manufacturers serving the energy and aerospace industries. Each button insert also has four faceted locating faces for excellent pocket stability.</p>
  417. <p>The F2334R milling cutter, in which the R stands for “reinforced,” is the first choice for blade machining. The cutter features a stable pocket design and a radial positive geometry to provide a soft cutting action. The cutters are available in diameter from 1¼&#8221; to 2½&#8221; and 25 to 80 mm. The usual DOC is 3 mm, with a 3.5 mm maximum, for the 10 mm insert and 4 mm, with a 4.5 mm maximum, for the 12 mm insert.</p>
  418. <p>Because turbine blades are exposed to extreme thermal and physical loads, only difficult-to-cut materials such as high-temperature super alloys can withstand such forces. The WMP45G with an optimized combination of toughness and high-temperature wear resistance, as well as less sensitivity to cracking, provides high process reliability and is the benchmark for blade machining.</p>
  419. <p>Several insert geometries are available. The geometry F67 is for “light. cutting” and is the first choice because of the low cutting forces being exerted. The strong D67 is mainly used for nickel-based super alloys due to its high cutting-edge stability. The universal D57 is for medium machining conditions and is suitable for applications other than blade machining.</p>
  420. <p>Walter, a global leader in the metalworking industry for over 100 years, offers a wide range of precision tools for milling, turning, drilling and threading applications. The company helps customers in the aviation and aerospace industries, automotive, energy, and general metalworking industry improve process reliability and increase productivity.
