Because “air-cutting” times are provided during cutting, this technique is also characterised by intermittent expulsion of fine chips. This has made it possible to resolve problems such as chip entanglement and built-up edges at a stroke.
Vibration cutting can handle a variety of types of machining in addition to linear machining on faces, including tapers, arcs, and drilling across a wide range of machining geometries and materials.
Vibration cutting can be turned ON and OFF just by inserting G codes in machining that has proved difficult up until now, such as the machining of deep holes and micro-machining.
See some examples of cutting with and without LFV technology.
"Our L20-VIIILFV is now doing the same work as three and a half of our current machines. We wish this technology had been available years ago. You do the MATHS!"
"Why only 15 components per hour? Cycle time reduction and increased uptime led to an extra 23 components per hour."
"SWARF Problems meant machine had to be stopped regularly to clear so only cutting half the time. Removal of SWARF problems doubled production time."
Our machines cover 1mm to 64mm and above. Fast to set, quick to changeover and easy to use our technology represents a sound investment. We invite you to take a look at our range.
