The Southern Manufacturing show at the new FIVE Farnborough venue in Hampshire will be the first opportunity for Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) Ltd to demonstrate both its expertise and ever expanding product lines for the micro manufacturing sector.
On Stand H250 from the 6th to 8th February, the leading UK manufacturer of cutting tools will be giving new product lines a UK exhibition debut; introducing extended product lines and also discussing the potential opportunities created by the enhanced production capabilities at the company’s Tamworth headquarters.
At the show, ITC will debut its new diamond coated 2301 and 2302 Cyber Series of square and ball nosed end mills and the new 2018 product catalogue will also be available for visitors to peruse. For micro and small part machining, ITC has now extended many of its existing product lines with the extremely popular 3081, 2161, 3091 Series being among the extended lines with diameters now available from 1mm in 0.5mm increments.
In 2017, ITC invested over £1m on new Rollomatic grinding centres, ASA wheel dressing equipment, a Haimer balancing machine and new oil filtration and chilling equipment. All this, now provides the UK’s leading cutting tool manufacturer with the facility to manufacture precision tools from diameters as small as 0.2mm. This facility for manufacturing micro-tools will be of particular interest to show visitors in both the electronics and aviation sectors.
As well as the introduction of a complete raft of new product lines and product extensions at Southern Manufacturing, show visitors will also have the opportunity to view the BIG KAISER range of MEGA Micro Chucks. Continuing the theme of supporting small and micro part manufacturers at Southern Manufacturing 2018, the new line of MEGA Micro Chucks from ITC incorporates a slim nut and taper design that prevents interference in applications that require micro drills and end mills. The MEGA Micro Chuck design has a notch-free nut that prevents vibration and noise. The chuck also offers superior balance and concentricity, which is critical for high speed machining with small tools.
Alongside the BIG KAISER range of MEGA Micro Chucks will be the impressive line of BIG KAISER EWN precision finish boring heads. The new EWN 04-7 Series is the smallest precision boring head on the market and its precision levels make it suitable for manufacturers operating micro-milling machines with high-speed spindle configurations such as HSK-E25, E32 or E40.
The head features a high precision adjustment accuracy of 0.0125mm and 0.0025mmØ through the use of a Vernier scale. The astounding precision is available for machining holes in the diameter range of Ø0.04mm to 7mm and the boring tools are available with the Kaiser KA1 modular connection or with a Ø10mm straight shank. The head features a maximum through-tool coolant pressure of 300PSI.
As well as demonstrating the very latest micro manufacturing product lines, ITC will also be showing the extensive WIDIA indexable insert tooling and micro machining range, the comprehensive range of BIG KAISER high-end machining solutions and of course, the impressive range of ITC’s UK manufactured cutting tools.
