New Tooling System for V-Groover MachinesJanuary 28, 2019
Hydrapower International Inc. has introduced a set of carbide tools for use on V-grooving machines. These tools enable rapid grooving of stainless-steel plates to 0.5 in. thick. The tools provide increased cutting speeds and extended tool life, according to company officials.The new tool system reportedly reduces the need for operators to watch for tool wear. A redundant tool in the fourth station will produce chips when the leading tools are worn. This lets the operator know that it is time to rotate the inserts. Parts will continue to meet dimensional specifications without the need to immediately stop the process.
