Rainford Brings Micro Machining Expertise to Northern Manufacturing

Added to MTDCNC by Rainford Precision on 08 August 2016

As industry leaders in the 'micro' machine tool and cutting tool technology arena, Rainford Precision will have all its latest innovations on show at the Northern Manufacturing exhibition from the 28th to 29th September. For engineers looking to solve problems regarding micro or very high precision machining, in all material types, Rainford will have the desired tooling solutions on Stand F80 at EventCity in Manchester.

For manufacturers looking for 'material specific' tooling solutions, Rainford will be showing the remarkable Louis Belet range of cutting tools specific for Aluminium, Brass, Stainless Steel, Titanium and Composite materials. The Swiss manufactured Louis Belet range encompasses solid carbide and PCD end mills, drills, circular and hob saws, threading and gear cutting tools as well as a host of special tooling lines.

The Louis Belet brand focuses on material type and application. From decades of expertise, their engineers have perfected the right tool geometries and coatings for specific material types. Unlike alternative tooling suppliers, the Louis Belet approach matches an endless variety of tool grades and coatings with innovative geometries for all applications. Furthermore, as a specialist that works with the world leading Swiss 'micro manufacturing' industry, the majority of the Louis Belet product lines are available in diameters starting at 0.1 mm. In fact the 370 EXPERT drills for Stainless steel increment in 0.01mm steps between 0.5 mm and 1.5 mm, ideal for sliding head machine users.

Alongside the micro machining Louis Belet range will be the Samurai Series of end milling cutters from Union Tool SA. This extensive range incorporates a complete line of two, three or four fluted cutters with a square or ball nose variant for machining all material types. The diversity of the solid carbide Samurai range provides up to 59 tool types from 1 to 12mm diameter. This comprehensive offering makes the Samurai range, the tool of choice for the mould & die, aerospace, automotive, medical and general subcontract industries.

The high-end tooling lines from Louis Belet and Union Tool will be complemented by specialist tooling lines from Iwata, Xactform, Hobe and Osawa at the Manchester exhibition. Appearing on the stand beside the most extensive 'micro' tooling line in the UK will be the hand-held or machine mounted high speed spindles from US based Air Turbine Tools ® (ATT). The ATT series of machine mounted spindles can be retrofitted to machine tools to deliver constant high speeds of 30,000, 40,000, 50,000, 65,000, or 75,000rpm. This makes the spindles suitable for a variety of operations with small cutting tools. For further details on how to improve your precision, productivity and performance with industry leading tools, or for a demonstration on how the Air Turbine spindles can optimise machine tool performance through higher speeds and feeds, please visit the Rainford Precision Stand F80 at Northern Manufacturing.
