Guhring will present three new turning systems. The new 104 and 106 Series for grooving, boring, broaching and threading and the 305 system, a three-fold interchangeable indexable insert for external and internal machining will all be shown at MACH.
In the case of the 104 and 106 systems, customers will see new insert additions with a range of new diameters, radii and lengths. With regard to the 305 Series, MACH will see the arrival of an entirely new indexable insert with sintered rake geometry, an increased range of inserts and new clamping holders for sliding heads as well as modular systems.
From a milling perspective, Guhring will be keen to demonstrate its new Ratio® line of roughing end mills. With flat crested geometry and an optimised roughing profile that demonstrates 60% longer service life, the new Ratio® high-performance roughing cutter has several geometry adjustments aimed at providing performance far beyond competitor products.
Alongside the Ratio® will be the extremely popular RF100 Diver series of end mills that has also been enhanced. The enhanced version at MACH will introduce optimised internal cooling channels and a program expansion for ramp drilling, grooving, rough finishing and finish milling. The RF 100 Diver has been designed for customers with constantly changing requirements. This means it is suitable for five operations with just one tool. One of the several updates is the new optimised bore cooling for drilling operations on axial cooling channels and in the case of milling applications, radial cooling channels.
MACH 2018 will see the arrival of the new PIONEX, the next generation of taps. This high performance tapping line incorporates a new polygon shape that generates 30% less torque that coincides with a geometric change of the taps. The PIONEX thread-formers are based on a newly developed powder-metallurgical cutting tool material that demonstrates a higher wear resistance than previously reached.
Industry 4.0 will also be a focal point for Guhring at MACH 2018 with the German innovator introducing enhancements to its software-based tool management system. Conventional production is undergoing profound change as Industry 4.0 shapes the communication and Information Technology platforms in industrial production
