The introduction of NSK linear guides with K1 lubrication units has helped a cereal manufacturer overcome contamination issues on its bagging machines, a move that is saving the company almost €65,000 a year.
To address the difficulties manufacturers face when performing disc milling operations in hard-to-machine materials, Seco Tools has announced a new line of products, the 335.18 and 335.19 disc mill cutter bodies. Close-pitch insert pockets improve stability and productivity, while plug-and-play internal coolant system further ensures the highest tool life and superior chip control. These features, as well as a new corrosion-resistant cutter body and indexable inserts with four cutting edges, allow these disc mills to outperform high-speed steel alternatives, especially in tough materials like sticky stainless steel, titanium and superalloys.
The new investments in the Nidec Leroy-Somer Foundry, launched last Thursday in the presence of the President of the Nouvelle Aquitaine Region and of local officials, tie in with the ambitious transformation and modernisation plan for the sites, presented last spring. The newly-launched project will immediately help improve competitiveness.
