Tornado significantly reduces chips and dust when nesting

Jul 2016

One of the biggest problems with routing on a CNC machine, particularly nesting, is effective removal of the waste chips and dust created by the machining operation.

Currently, nested panels, are either ‘vacuumed’ off with a small dust extractor or have the chips and dust blown off with an air-line. Both resulting in downtime at the end of the machining operation and the latter filling the working environment with potentially harmful dust. The other consequence of poor extraction during machining is premature tool wear.

The best solution is to extract the dust and chips as the tool is cutting. Currently systems exist running into 4 figures, that was until Sistemi, Italian tooling supplier developed the Tornado Extraction Nut.

The Tornado Extraction Nut assembles directly onto the CNC chuck instead of the standard clamping nut and provides a big improvement to dust extraction, removing it away from the workpiece directly into the centralised extraction system of the CNC machine.

The Tornado Extraction Nut has the following benefits and features:

  • Improved working environment.
  • Eliminates costly machine downtime, reducing panel ‘cleaning’ time.
  • Light weight.
  • Suitable for any standard CNC collet chucks, ER32, ER40, ER25 and EOC25 (DIN6388).
  • Cost effective solution.
  • Replaces standard clamping nut without additional inserts or components.
  • Improves tool life.
  • Maximum tool diameter 70mm.
  • Available in two diameters: 98mm and 80mm where there is reduced space in the tooling carousel.
  • Precision balance to maximum speed 20,000 RPM at G2.5.
  • Only 0.4KG weight.
  • Available from stock in the UK from CP Tooling & Machinery Ltd.

Guhdo Piano Plus+ Project >>P<< Ultimate Beam Saw

Jul 2016

Guhdo, Germany, have developed a new beam saw blade suitable for machining single or stacked panels of plastic and foil coated chipboard.

The blade has been developed to give a significantly increased lifetime due to a special tooth geometry, high quality, fine grained, tungsten tip grade and special body dampening elements to reduce vibration.

The Piano Plus+ program of sawblades can be recognised by their special laser-cut, anti-vibration elements, giving the sawblade significant low-noise properties.

A special grade of tungsten carbide tooth has been selected to give both extreme hardness and rupture strength, field tests have shown that this greatly increases the lifetime of the blade.

The Project >>P<< blade is currently available in diameters from 350mm to 450mm and with various bore sizes and pin-hole configurations to suit of all the major beam saw manufacturers, including SCM, Selco, Giben, Holzma and Schelling and are available from Guhdo’s UK partner, CP Tooling & Machinery Ltd.

CP Tooling & Machinery Ltd saves joinery company time and money

Jul 2016

Davey Joinery Ltd, based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, had been using the Trend Modular window system to manufacture various styles of windows for a number of years.

Whilst they were fairly happy with the time saving that the modular window system gave them, they were spending more and more time finishing the windows to the high quality that they required.

One area that was taking up a lot of time was the rubbing down of the arris prior to their in-house paint finishing. Miles Davey, owner of Davey Joinery, had already purchased special tooling from CP Tooling & Machinery Ltd in the past, and asked them if they could come up with a solution for this particular problem.

Colin Peacock, Managing Director of CP Tooling, designed the Trend Modular window system and was well placed to come up with a solution to run with Davey Joinery’s existing tooling.

Miles Davey said that he was extremely impressed with the service he received from CP Tooling, particularly the fast turnaround from drawing sign-off and the fact that he only had to purchase a small number of extra tools to compliment the tools he already had, rather than investing in a completely new system. Miles went on to say that they had already produced windows using the new tooling and had made significant time savings due to the much reduced finishing process.

Miles finished by saying ‘Not only have the new tools reduced our overall production time, we now have a higher quality specification of window that enables us to stand out against the competition’.
