  93. <p>“For the past 20 years, Tormach has helped our customers make things by offering capable yet affordable CNC machines and accessories, best-in-class control software, and great technical support,” said Daniel Rogge, CEO of Tormach. “Our community asked, and we listened, and the new 1500MX mill represents a huge leap forward for Tormach by delivering the higher performance, power, responsiveness, and technology professionals demand.”</p>
  94. <p>The 1500MX offers a host of features designed to enhance machining efficiency and precision. Crafted with an epoxy granite frame made in the U.S., this machine boasts ten times the damping of cast iron, ensuring chatter-free cuts, superior surface finishes, and 30% longer tool life.</p>
  95. <p>Equipped with a robust 4HP, 10K RPM BT30 spindle (with a maximum of 6HP), it delivers ample torque for cutting through various materials and offers enough spindle speed to take advantage of modern carbide tooling. Additionally, every 1500MX is thru-spindle coolant (TSC) ready, facilitating seamless integration of TSC for enhanced drilling efficiency, smoother finishes, part consistency, and extended tool life.</p>
  96. <p>Featuring servo motors with absolute encoders boasting 23-bit accuracy and battery backup, this CNC mill eliminates the need for machine referencing, ensuring uninterrupted precision even between power cycles. Cutting feed rates of up to 1200IPM (XY) reduce cycle times and take advantage of adaptive tool paths.</p>
  97. <p>“This is the first machine we’ve built utilizing an epoxy granite frame – a superior material because of its incredible vibration damping properties – and our first machine made in North America by Tormach employee-owners,” said Rogge. “With 1200 inch-per-minute feed rates and a 6 HP (max) spindle, it’s also by far the fastest, most accurate, and most powerful machine we’ve ever made. We are confident our customers who have grown their businesses with our equipment will be excited to make accurate parts faster and for less money than ever before.”</p>
  98. <p>Other features include a built-in camera for real-time monitoring, error message logs for troubleshooting, and tool rack options for enhanced organization. Additionally, Tormach allows users to add accessories over time so the machine can grow with their business. Upgrade options such as a 16-tool capacity umbrella style automatic tool changer, a fourth axis harmonic gear reducer, a TSC kit, a washdown bar kit, a wireless probe and tool setter, a mist collector, and a chip conveyor system with lift provide users with unparalleled flexibility to tailor the product to their specific needs.</p>
  99. <p>“We are most excited about the speed, power, and automation the 1500MX brings to both our prototyping and production abilities,” said beta test customer Keegan Karl, Vice President of DarkAero Inc., a high-performance composite aircraft manufacturer. “It is exciting to see how quickly it can create the parts we designed, and it feels powerful to simply send the program to the machine, press start, and watch it produce what we need autonomously.”</p>
  100. <p>“The tool changer with the BT30 high-quality spindle is a huge time saver,” noted Larry Britzman, owner of Britzman Enterprises LLC, another beta tester of the 1500MX. “We have already seen cycle times shorten, and combined with the rapids, it has shaved significant time off parts. The extra coolant flushing of the chips has also saved us hours of cleanup, and our employees have noted how nice it is not to have to re-reference and touch tools and datum points off each morning, which saves even more time during the day.”</p>
  101. <p>As with all Tormach machines, the 1500MX operates on the company’s free and open source <a href="https://hubs.ly/Q02s6nZX0" data-wpel-link="external" target="_blank" rel="nofollow external"><span style="text-decoration: underline;">PathPilot</span><sup><span style="text-decoration: underline;">®</span></sup></a> control software, offering users unlimited access to advanced machining functionalities without software lockouts. Additionally, Tormach’s dedication to affordability is underscored by the incorporation of free features for the 1500MX, such as software updates for life, 80GB memory, TSC-ready capability, spindle orientation, rigid tapping, coordinated rotation, conversational programming, and a TSC-ready spindle, all provided at no additional cost.</p>
  102. <p>“The 1500MX offers features that are often either unavailable or provided at a premium by other manufacturers, ensuring our customers receive exceptional value without compromising on quality or functionality,” said Rogge. “Moreover, we’ve introduced some exciting updates to PathPilot that include the addition of tool wear compensation and enhancements to the trajectory planner to incorporate machine smoothing. For those familiar with PathPilot from previous Tormach machines, transitioning to the 1500MX will be remarkably swift.”</p>
  103. <p>Additionally, the new 1500MX is optimized to pair with Tormach’s industrial robot, the <a href="https://hubs.ly/Q02s6n-P0" data-wpel-link="external" target="_blank" rel="nofollow external"><span style="text-decoration: underline;">ZA6</span></a>, for light machine automation capabilities.</p>
  104. <p>Tormach’s dedication to innovation was recently recognized with its inclusion in the prestigious <a href="https://www.inc.com/profile/tormach" data-wpel-link="external" target="_blank" rel="nofollow external"><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Inc. 5000 list for 2023</span></a>. The company was also a 2024 Fourth Revolution Award finalist and recognized for making an impact on manufacturing through community-focused efforts. These achievements underscore Tormach’s remarkable growth and unwavering commitment to democratizing CNC technology.</p>

  204. <p><em>Greer, SC —</em> <a href="http://www.walter-tools.com" data-wpel-link="external" target="_blank" rel="nofollow external"><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Walter</span></a> has introduced the TC685 <em>Supreme</em> orbital drill/thread milling cutter, which reduces hard machining times by producing the core hole, the chamfer  and thread in one operation. The cutter’s face milling geometry is specifically designed for core hole creation and chamfering. After chamfering to start a hole in the workpiece material, the tool creates the core hole and thread using helical interpolation.</p>
  205. <p>Applications include blind-hole and through-hole threads in steel and hardened steel from 44 to 65 HRC (ISO P and H material groups). The tool is designed for producing thread depths of 2 × D<sub>N</sub> and 2.5 × D<sub>N. </sub>Areas of use include mold and die making, and general mechanical engineering, among others. The tool is suitable for machining a range of metric thread sizes from M2 to M20.</p>
  206. <p>The TC685 <em>Supreme </em>cutter is a left-hand cutting tool that features a 15° helix angle for excellent chip removal. Cooling with compressed air makes it possible to achieve maximum tool life in materials harder than 50 HRC. Additionally, internal coolant delivery is available for tools that create the M6 size through the larger thread sizes. The tool shank is in accordance with the DIN 6535 HA standard.</p>
  207. <p>Potential benefits include maximum process reliability, a very low cost per thread and a reduction in the number of tool positions that are required. The new geometry and post-treatment process reduces torque requirements and extends tool life. The TC685 Supreme orbital drill/thread milling cutter is a cost-effective solution even for small and medium batch sizes.</p>
  208. <p>The Walter lineup of products consists of three categories to its tools. <em>Supreme</em> indicates the highest level of technology and performance available. <em>Perform</em> tools are products that provide an economical solution with focused importance on price and <em>Advance</em> which indicates product efficiently balanced between price and performance.</p>
  209. <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.

  260. <li><strong>SINEC Security Guard: Intuitive cloud-based software-as-a-service to improve cybersecurity on the shop floor</strong></li>
  261. <li><strong>Allows users to match vulnerabilities to their OT assets, prioritize them and engage in mitigation measures</strong></li>
  262. <li><strong>Integration with the cloud-native SIEM Microsoft Sentinel enabled</strong></li>

  264. </ul>
  265. <p>Production facilities are increasingly the targets of cyberattacks. Industrial companies are therefore required to identify and close potential vulnerabilities in their systems. To address the need to identify cybersecurity vulnerabilities on the shop floor as quickly as possible, Siemens has launched a new cybersecurity software-as-a-service.</p>
  266. <p>The cloud-based SINEC Security Guard offers automated vulnerability mapping and security management optimized for industrial operators in OT environments. The software can automatically assign known cybersecurity vulnerabilities to the production assets of industrial companies. This allows industrial operators and automation experts who don’t have dedicated cybersecurity expertise to identify cybersecurity risks among their OT assets on the shop floor and receive a risk- based threat analysis. The software then recommends and prioritizes mitigation measures. Defined mitigation measures can also be planned and tracked by the tool’s integrated task management. SINEC Security Guard is offered as cybersecurity software-as-a-service (“SaaS”), is hosted by Siemens and will be available for purchase in July, 2024 on the Siemens Xcelerator Marketplace and on the Siemens Digital Exchange.</p>
  267. <p><a href="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Sinec-2.jpg" data-wpel-link="internal"><img decoding="async" width="700" height="525" class="size-large wp-image-139866 aligncenter" src="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Sinec-2-700x525.jpg" alt="" srcset="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Sinec-2-700x525.jpg 700w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Sinec-2-250x188.jpg 250w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Sinec-2-768x576.jpg 768w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Sinec-2-1536x1152.jpg 1536w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Sinec-2-2048x1536.jpg 2048w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Sinec-2-120x90.jpg 120w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></a></p>
  268. <p>&nbsp;</p>
  269. <p><strong>  Increasing protection by reducing manual effort</strong></p>
  270. <p>“With SINEC Security Guard, customers can focus their resources on the most urgent and relevant vulnerabilities, while having full risk transparency in their factory. It is unique because it takes the specific situation of the customer’s operational environment into consideration while providing a single pane of glass for security- relevant information in the OT area,” says Dirk Didascalou, CTO of Siemens Digital Industries. “When developing the SINEC Security Guard, we drew on our extensive experience with cybersecurity in our own factories.”</p>
  271. <p>Today, industrial operators are tasked with continuously safeguarding their production assets on the shop floor. They need to analyze vendor security advisories, manually match them to the asset inventory of their factory and prioritize mitigation measures. Because this process is time-consuming and error-prone using the existing tools, factories are running the risk of missing critical vulnerabilities in their assets or producing false-positives. This can lead to incorrectly configured plant components and inadequately allocated resources. With the SINEC Security Guard, industrial operators can tackle these challenges without needing in-depth cybersecurity knowledge.</p>
  272. <p>&nbsp;</p>
  273. <p><strong>Attack detection at scale with Microsoft Sentinel</strong></p>
  274. <p>For a comprehensive view of IT and OT cybersecurity, SINEC Security Guard will also offer a connection to Microsoft Sentinel, Microsoft’s Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution for proactive threat detection, investigation and response. Once connected, SINEC Security Guard can send alerts for security events including attacks to Sentinel, enabling a security analyst to incorporate SINEC Security Guard insights and conclusions in investigations and responses with Microsoft Sentinel powered Security Operations Centers.</p>
  275. <p>“As information technology and operational technology systems continue to converge, a holistic cybersecurity architecture is key to protecting IT and OT capabilities alike. By combining our domain knowledge, Siemens and Microsoft make it easier for industrial operators to efficiently detect and address cybersecurity threats at scale,” says Ulrich Homann, Corporate Vice President, Cloud + AI at Microsoft.</p>
  276. <p><a href="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Sinec-1.jpg" data-wpel-link="internal"><img decoding="async" width="700" height="515" class="size-large wp-image-139865 aligncenter" src="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Sinec-1-700x515.jpg" alt="" srcset="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Sinec-1-700x515.jpg 700w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Sinec-1-250x184.jpg 250w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Sinec-1-768x565.jpg 768w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Sinec-1-1536x1129.jpg 1536w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Sinec-1-2048x1506.jpg 2048w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Sinec-1-120x88.jpg 120w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></a></p>
  277. <p>SINEC Security Guard also supports the manual upload of existing asset information for asset inventory. Siemens recommends, however, that industrial operators use the Industrial Asset Hub, the Siemens cloud-based Asset Management solution, to enable continuous automated asset inventory management.</p>
  278. <p>Functionalities also include signature-based network intrusion and attack detection via the SINEC Security Guard Sensor, an Industrial Edge app, which gives users live information about their industrial network. The SINEC Security Guard Sensor App is available at the Siemens Industrial Edge Marketplace.</p>
  279. <p>The initial release of SINEC Security Guard only supports Siemens OT assets but third-party device support is planned in the future. SINEC Security Guard will expand the existing Siemens software portfolio for OT network security consisting of SINEC Security Inspector and SINEC Security Monitor.</p>

When evaluating sustainability, it is important not to focus too narrowly on a product, but also to consider the environment &#8211; the product life cycle and the entire process in which the product is integrated.</p>

Among other things, the solar energy system was extended to other buildings and converted to LED lights. This will save more than 250 tons of CO2 per year.</p></div>
  331. <p><strong>How does sustainability look in machining?<br />
  332. </strong>Metal machining has many facets. Depending on the material, component geometry and quantities, a wide variety of machines, tools and clamping devices are used. External circumstances such as the production location, the qualifications of the employees and possible automation must also be taken into account. There are many different manufacturing options that can be the best, most economical and most sustainable solution depending on the individual case. It is difficult not to compare apples with oranges here.</p>
  333. <p>How is sustainability measured? Apart from the used materials, energy efficiency is probably the main factor that determines a sustainable process. Therefore, a promising approach is to look for the largest consumers and optimize their use.</p>
  334. <p><strong>The machine tool offers savings potential<br />
  335. </strong>In machining, this is undoubtedly the machine tool, which consumes the majority of the energy used with its spindle and axis drives, peripherals and auxiliary units such as cooling, lubrication or compressed air supply.</p>
  336. <p>When purchasing new machines, the user can significantly reduce consumption by paying attention to energy-saving components. Andreas Haimer, Managing Director and President of the HAIMER Group, the market leader in tool holding technology, explains: &#8220;In our own production, we have learned that replacing an old machining center with a new one using the same machining process requires around 30 percent less energy.&#8221; He adds another fundamental factor: &#8220;As a family business, we pay a lot of attention to sustainability. For example, we source our steel for tools from Germany, have been using electricity exclusively from renewable energy sources for years and are investing in solar energy systems and green infrastructure. In the last financial year, we invested a total of over one million euros and saved over 250 tons of CO2 per year.&#8221;</p>
  337. <p>Back to the machinery, where not every older machining center can be replaced by a new one. Savings can also be made in the machining process, for example by using CAD/CAM-optimized machining strategies such as trochoidal milling. Andreas Haimer has a concrete example: &#8220;A customer provided Haimerwith data on how he was able to reduce the machining time by 75 percent from 71 minutes to 18 minutes per part by trochoidal milling with our HAIMER Power shrink fit chucks and HAIMER MILL cutters compared to machining with a face mill cutter The change in machining strategy was accompanied by energy savings due to significantly lower power consumption. While the spindle load was 80-85% for 10 parts in conventional machining with a face mill cutter, resulting in total energy costs of around EUR 150, the trochoidal milling strategy with a spindle load of 8-10% and significantly shorter machine running time reduced energy costs to a total of EUR 5 for 10 parts. This in turn means a higher output with lower energy consumption per part produced &#8211; that&#8217;s what I call sustainable and efficient.&#8221;</p>
  338. <p><strong>The sustainability of tool holding: A holistic approach<br />
  339. </strong>If you look at the whole process chain, have you ever thought about how a tool holder could contribute to sustainability? In view of a machining process in which the milling machine consumes an average of around 30 kW, plus the power of hydraulic and pneumatic devices, automation equipment and robots, tool holding only plays a subordinate role. This is because the tool holder is a comparatively small detail, even if the clamping process with a shrink fit chuck consumes a marginal amount of energy.</p>
  340. <p>Looking at other clamping systems, the energy consumption during shrinking is higher in operational use than with a hydraulic or milling chuck. If you look at the entire product life cycle of a tool holder, which includes production, maintenance and disposal, a completely different picture emerges.</p>
  341. <div id="attachment_139857" style="width: 310px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><a href="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Andreas-Haimer-mit-neuem-Hybrid-Chuck.jpg_ico400.jpg" data-wpel-link="internal"><img decoding="async" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-139857" class="wp-image-139857 size-full" src="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Andreas-Haimer-mit-neuem-Hybrid-Chuck.jpg_ico400.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="400" srcset="https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Andreas-Haimer-mit-neuem-Hybrid-Chuck.jpg_ico400.jpg 300w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Andreas-Haimer-mit-neuem-Hybrid-Chuck.jpg_ico400-250x333.jpg 250w, https://www.practicalmachinist.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Andreas-Haimer-mit-neuem-Hybrid-Chuck.jpg_ico400-120x160.jpg 120w" sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px" /></a><p id="caption-attachment-139857" class="wp-caption-text">Andreas Haimer, President of the HAIMER Group, with a new hybrid chuck: &#8220;We have a very wide range of different tool holders. These include many different shrink fit chucks, but also hydraulic chucks. At EMO, we presented a world first with the HAIMER Hybrid Chuck. It combines the vibration-damping properties of a hydraulic chuck with those of a high-precision, high-performance shrink fit chuck, opening up many possibilities for making the machining process even more efficient and sustainable.&#8221;</p></div>
  342. <p>The production of a hydraulic chuck requires significantly more effort and energy due to its more complicated structure. In addition to the high-precision machining of individual components, there is also the soldering of the expansion sleeve, additional heat treatment to prevent the solder joint from breaking, as well as the effort required for cleaning, assembly and filling with oil. &#8220;From our experience, the energy required for production is around three times as high as for the shrink fit chuck,&#8221; explains Andreas Haimer. &#8220;In addition to shrink fit chucks, we also have hydraulic chucks in our extensive portfolio, although their list prices are two to three times higher than shrink fit chucks due to the complex production process. They are the right solution for certain applications. However, they are not more sustainable. Our analyses have shown that a hydraulic chuck requires approx. 25 kWh more energy to manufacture than a shrink chuck. Conversely, in terms of the product life cycle, this means that a shrink fit chuck with an energy requirement of 0.026 kWh per shrink fit and cooling cycle can be shrunk almost 1,000 times before it requires more energy than a hydraulic chuck.&#8221; The same applies to milling chucks, which are much more complicated and contain more components as well as grease and lubricants.</p>
  343. <p><strong>Life cycle and process reliability are crucial<br />
  344. </strong>In addition to the increased manufacturing costs, there is also the difference in terms of maintenance. While Haimer shrink chucks are maintenance-free due to the particularly high quality of the hot-work tool steel and, in combination with the patented Haimer coil and shrink fit machine technology, they can be shrunk in and out an unlimited number of times, whereas hydraulic chucks and milling chucks have to be returned to the manufacturer every 2-3 years at the latest to check the clamping force, lubricate the clamping screw or grease the system and carry out regular maintenance of the chuck due to wear. The contained hydraulic fluid or grease also makes environmentally friendly disposal more difficult than with shrink fit chucks, which do not contain any additional components. In addition to the life cycle, there are also significant differences in terms of process reliability: in the event of dry machining or insufficient cooling in the machining process, hydraulic chucks pose the risk of the clamping chambers bursting due to the high heat development, including tool pull-out and the risk of scrap. Shrink fit chucks are more robust and durable in this respect; if you want to completely eliminate the risk of tool pull-out, the Haimer Safe-Lock system is available as an option for shrink fit chucks for 100% safety.</p>
  345. <p><strong>Energy consumption in perspective<br />
  346. </strong>But how is energy consumption really calculated during the shrinking process? Heating a shrink fit chuck takes about 5 seconds with a current HAIMER shrink fit machine. Experienced users shrink a worn cutting tool and shrink a new cutting tool in a single operation. The tool holder is therefore only heated and cooled once. The maximum output of a HAIMER Power Clamp shrink fit machine with the patented NG coil is 13 kW, but the average is 8 kW. This means that a single, complete shrinking process consumes around 0.011 kWh. On top of this, cooling consumes around 0.015 kWh &#8211; although Haimer devices can cool up to five holders in parallel and at the same time with almost the same energy consumption. In the worst-case scenario, this results in a total of 0.026 kWh for the entire process. If a kilowatt hour costs 20 cents, shrinking and cooling a tool costs a marginal 0.5 cents.</p>
  347. <p>And how should the energy consumption be classified when considering the machining process, in which the power consumption of a milling machine with all auxiliary drives is around 30 kW? Assuming that a tool is in use for approx. 1 hour and that even just one percent of the machining time can be saved thanks to the high concentricity and rigidity or the improved milling strategies due to the slim contour, that would be 0.3 kWh of energy saved. This is approximately 11 times the amount of energy used for shrinking.</p>
  348. <p>Andreas Haimer summarizes: &#8220;The energy consumption per clamping process plays a negligible role compared to the issues of life cycle, process reliability and machining strategy. Modern CAD/CAM-optimized milling strategies can save 75 percent of machining time. Machinists must focus on such improved processes if they want to be sustainable and productive. And in a second step, they should select the most suitable and process-reliable tool holder for these strategies&#8221;</p>
