Rockwell Automation has added EPLAN’s Pro Panel to their approved Encompass products. EPLAN Software & Services has been an Encompass Partner since 2008. Rockwell Automation’s Encompass Products have to meet high quality and functionality criteria such as being developed by a reputable and sound company, that is committed to product and services quality, also committed to partnering with Rockwell Automation, and providing useful functionality not delivered by any of Rockwell’s current products.
The island of Guernsey is a British Crown dependency, located in the English Channel, about 30 miles from the north coast of France and 70 miles from the south coast of England. Guernsey Water has deployed a communication network to integrate 40 facilities into a single network. These range from pumping stations and water treatment works to land and office buildings. The ProSoft Technology solution, based on IEEE 802.11n standard, proved to be a reliable, easy to integrate and cost-effective solution.
The new KenFeed™ 2X milling solution from Kennametal is the latest development in high-feed for light to heavy end milling operations. Developed from the original KenFeed™ platform, which has seen industry success for over six years, this new generation promises larger depths of cut using larger inserts.
The simple but effective KSEM PLUS™ modular system that combines the benefits of the KSEM™ modular drill (high feeds and length-to-diameter [L/D] ratios) with the benefits of an indexable drill (high speeds and low consumable costs) is the current industry benchmark when it comes to drilling large diameter applications. Kennametal is now extending its KSEM PLUS range by introducing new KSEM PLUS B1 Heads with DFC guiding pads to deliver reduced cost per hole in difficult drilling conditions.
The KSRM™ line of cutters is a new, multipurpose milling solution from Kennametal specifically engineered for titanium and stainless steel applications. Their design enables pocketing, profiling, ramping, and plunging with up to 1mm fz. KSRM milling cutters deliver consistent performance and excellent metal removal rates with the lowest cutting forces for roughing applications.
As the latest complement to the Mill 1™ platform for finishing operations, Mill 1-7™ is Kennametal’s solution for finishing in small diameter milling. This new line is specifically engineered to cover ramping, slotting, and plunging for aerospace, energy, and general engineering applications. Mill 1-7 is a diverse tool for roughing and finishing operations, where small diameter end mills are required.
Kennametal introduces a new line of innovative, expandable, high performance reamers. RMB-E™ monobloc and RHM-E™ modular reamers are accurate, easy-to-use, expansion tools that are unlike any similar device available.
Kennametal introduces the revolutionary new Rodeka™ series of inserts for indexable milling. Based on the success of Dodeka™, Rodeka double-sided inserts have a unique design with twelve cutting edges for a more productive and cost effective cutting process.
