Platinum Tooling President Presents Product Lines in New Video

Platinum Tooling Technologies, Inc., the exclusive North American importer of Heimatec Live Tools and Angle Heads, Tecnicrafts Swiss Collets and Guide Bushings, Henninger Spindle Speeders and AMF Cleaning and Marking tools, recently created a video highlighting the products they would have shown in their booth at IMTS this year.

Preben Hansen, company president, presented the various product lines Platinum Tooling offers and highlights the areas of expansion since the last IMTS show in 2018.  Platinum Tooling Technologies, Inc. has a wide selection of machine tool accessories for most machine brands.    

Hansen demonstrated the u-tec® flexible changing system for Live Tools offered from their flagship brand, Heimatec.  The tool featured was an ER 32 output cross-working tool for a BMT style turret.  While standard ER 32 collets can be used in this tool, Hansen explained the beauty of the built-in changing system designed to receive a variety of adapters for different applications.  With this system, the customer realizes both flexibility and cost savings.    

Due to the budgetary restraints caused by COVID-19, Hansen commented that many buyers are interested in buying tools that can help them do more with their existing machines, rather than investing in new equipment.  One example shown was a twin spindle tool which creates a second output from a single turret position.  Another tool featured was an adjustable angle tool that allows users to produce a feature on the workpiece with a compound angle without having to re-fixture the part.

In addition, Heimatec offers a wide range of Static Tools to complement their Live Tools.  This includes boring bar holders, facing holders, standard and half index turning tools as presented.  Other new developments from the company include CAPTO output tooling and Live and Static Tools for Citizen machines.  Platinum Tooling stocks many of these tools at their headquarters in Prospect Heights, Illinois.     

The last tool highlighted from the Heimatec line was a Machining Center Angle Head weighing 12 pounds with an ER 25 output that can hold a 5/8” cutter.  At this weight, the tool can be used with almost any Automatic Tool Changers on the market.  This is just one of many Angle Head styles offered by Platinum Tooling.  As with Live Tools, most Angle Heads are designed with the u-tec® flexible changing system.   

The Tecnicrafts line is another area of expansion featured by Platinum Tooling.  Collets and Guide Bushings for Swiss type CNC Lathes, specialty collets for CNC cutter grinders as well as 5C & 16C Collets are included in their selection.  These high-quality workholding tools are offered in a wide variety of styles and sizes.  Many popular items in inch and metric sizes are stocked at Platinum Tooling.    

Speed Increasers and Custom Angle Heads from Henninger are also offered through Platinum Tooling.  Speeder types include mechanical, air, and motor driven.  Mechanical driven speed increasers provide rpm up to 50,000, while air and high frequency speeders offer rpm up to 80,000.   

Lastly, Hansen introduced the Cleaning and part Marking tools supplied by AMF.  Typically used in toolholders utilizing ER Collets or Weldon clamping systems, these tools can be used independently or in conjunction with each other during the machining process.  The high-speed marking tool will permanently mark the workpiece while the cleaning tool washes away unwanted chips.  New for Platinum Tooling this year is the AMF gripper.  This product is operated pneumatically by compressed air or hydraulically with coolant via the machine spindle for repositioning the workpiece. 

Platinum Tooling prides itself on representing the highest quality machine tool accessories in the marketplace.  They offer standard and custom tools throughout their product lines to help with the most challenging applications.

A new Platinum Tooling Image Catalog is now available upon request featuring all of the products lines shown in the video.

ANCA New Tooling System Chuck

A New Tooling System for Woodworking Blade Profiles on FX Machines

ANCA machine innovation and software combine for a complete package for producing woodworking tools, reducing set-up times 

By Simon Richardson, Product Manager
ANCA is well known for offering standard and special custom solutions for our customers. When ANCA designs a custom solution, we give our customers tailored and diverse options with shorter set-up times. In an increasingly challenging market, companies grinding tools are always looking at innovative products and diversifying into different sectors using existing or new machinery.

Woodworking BladeANCA recently developed a new product which provides more flexibility and capability while enhancing the FX machine range. The product is a tooling system used on FX5 and FX7 machines which offers the ability to easily interchange between woodworking profile blades and cylindrical (shank) tools.

This means companies grinding woodworking tools can grind blade profiles and then quickly change to cylindrical shank tools, such as compression routers. In addition, companies focusing predominantly on engineering tools can consider adding woodworking blade profiles to their product portfolio.

This tooling system comes as a package. The package includes a workholding adaptor (blade chuck) to hold flat profile blades and a blade gripper head fitted to the robot loader to load woodworking blades or cylindrical tools without any mechanical changes. This means the robot head does not need to be changed. A blade gripper is used to load and unload blades and gripper fingers for loading cylindrical tools. Optional pallets are available for both blades and shank tools.

The blade chuck works with a pull stud clamping mechanism. Switching between the blade chuck and standard collet adaptor (for cylindrical tools) is done in minutes. Automatic loading and grinding of blade profiles with a smallest size of 20 x 20mm (0.78”) and largest size of 80 (3.14”) x 30mm (1.18”) is possible. This system is also retrofittable to existing FX5 and FX7 machines.

The blade chuck work holding has an adjustable insertion depth between 8 (5/16”) and 28mm (1.10”). The chuck can accommodate blades on or between 0.5 (0.019”) to 4mm (0.15”) thick using different size datum blocks. When manual loading, the chuck can hold blades up to 120mm (4.72”) long. Blades with a bevelled edge can also be supported. An air blast operates during the clamping and unclamping cycles to ensure the chuck is free of any contaminants. Digitizing of the top, side and bottom of the blade along with notches or datum features is possible. The chuck can also rotate for blades with an undercut feature, so the profile can be ground normal to the blade surface.

In addition to the tooling system for blades, ANCA has a dedicated software package for grinding varied and multiple blade profiles. The user-friendly software enables quick programming and short set-up times. The user can easily define the workholding, blank and profile or import a DXF. The blades themselves are mounted into tools used on different woodworking machinery for cutting profiles into solid wood furniture and components such as skirting boards and architraves.

When grinding blade profiles, the depth of the profile can be quite deep, and a lot of stock needs to be removed. Slice Roughing is a method of removing large amounts of stock from the blade very aggressively, meaning shorter cycle times. Slice Roughing repeatedly plunges the roughing wheel downwards into the blade from the top of the blank to the finish stock amount specified by the user. When grinding blade profiles with ANCA software, it’s possible to control the wheel pivot and relief angles along the profile which is important for blade grinding. This flexible tooling system combined with blade software, offers a complete package for producing woodworking tools.

Simon Richardson is one of ANCA’s Product Managers, looking after the technical development and commercialization of a range of machines and technology. Simon has 25 years of experience in the grinding industry, building an extensive understanding of market needs, trends and opportunities. Simon uses his intimate knowledge of ANCA products and grinding in general to offer the industry and customers a range of insights, tips and expertise to enable everyone’s ongoing success.  A well-known figure amongst grinders, Simon joined ANCA in 2003 in the UK as a Sales Manager before emigrating to Australia in 2007.

Exact Metrology Helps Retrofit Aircraft

Exact Metrology, a comprehensive metrology services provider, recently completed a job at Chicago Jet Group. Located in Sugar Grove, Illinois, the company started in 2003 with the idea of providing the highest level of professionalism and attention to detail in the corporate aviation industry.  Chicago Jet Group specializes in aircraft acquisition, aircraft management, charter services, pre-purchase evaluation, aircraft avionics, aircraft consulting and aircraft maintenance. The company was retrofitting older Dassault Falcons avionics and needed a CAD model of the panel to see how it would fit.

Joe van der Sanden, application engineer from Exact Metrology, scanned the panel with an 85 series Hexagon Romer Absolute Arm. The Absolute Arm 7-axis delivers tactile probing and laser scanning in an ergonomic package. It is the best choice for ease of movement and ease of measurement. The flagship RS5 laser scanner offers high-speed 3D scanning Retrofit Aircraftfor surfaces and features on a wide range of finishes and materials with less investment than the RS6. Furthermore, the RS5 laser scanner boasts a wide and horizontally-oriented laser scan line and fully-automatic exposure settings, making general purpose scanning functionality simple to apply regardless of application. In addition, with mid-range width at 115 millimeters, the laser scanner line of the RS5 makes digitizing large surfaces simple and quick.  The RS5 can be easily removed from the arm, allowing simpler and safer access to touch probing functionality in hard-to-reach areas. Thanks to repeatable mounting, it can be remounted without recalibration. Through the on-wrist OLED display screen of the Absolute Arm 7-axis, the RS5 allows for measurement feedback and settings adjustment at the point of measurement for a clear improvement to workflow productivity.

Then, dimensions were obtained in Polyworks Inspector. The Polyworks software suite covers the complete product development cycle, from part and tool design and prototyping down to final inspection of assembled parts. Polyworks Inspector™ is the industry-standard toolbox for product engineering, assembly guidance and final inspection.

Reverse engineering was performed using Geomagic Design X. This software combines history-based CAD with 3D scan data processing and enables the creation of feature-based, editable solid models compatible with existing CAD software.  Geomagic Design X allows users to re-use existing designs without having to manually update old drawings or re-measure and rebuild a model in CAD. This software is easy to learn and use, for it uses familiar history-based tools found in all major CAD products.

Chicago Jet Group was very pleased with the work performed by Exact Metrology and they would be happy to work with them again.  A senior avionics technician at the company said, “This will save us months of measuring and drafting.”


Exact Metrology is ISO, AS9100 Certified as well as FFL and ITAR Registered.

ANCA Launches the New-Look CIM3D V9 With Time-Saving and User-Friendly Enhancements for Offline Productivity

A sophisticated analytical hub provides increased intelligence on cutting tool designs to avoid costly collisions and missed calculations

ANCA CIM3D Software advanced sectioning planeANCA’s new CIM3D V9 release of the industry-leading CIMulator3D software has an upgraded interface with fresh colors and icons and is even easier to use with intuitive functionality. The latest technology and software design has been packed into this release offering time-saving benefits and interactive visualization across the entire grinding process.

Thomson Mathew, ANCA Software Product Manager says: “This upgrade responds directly to what our customers want and need for effective tool simulation. CIM3D V9 allows for customization based on regularly-used features no matter which industry. The simulation quality of ANCA’s software is unmatched and you can simulate complete grinding sequences.”

“The offline capabilities of using the latest CIM3D version mean important background calculations are easily verified, increasing machine productivity. This not only maximizes machine time but for those working from home, CIM3D can be run independently on any computer – so it is possible to do all the programming remotely.”

“We have automated many manual steps and introduced process verification and analysis in a central hub to get improved cycle time, and better wheel and tool life. Collisions can be detected automatically and overall CIM3D V9 is more enjoyable and easier to use.”

The new software offers clearer visualization with the customizable timeline panel – effectively a central dashboard for quicker and easier tool analysis. New tool programs can be verified for size, shape, machine clearance, cycle time estimates, and more.

Chris Wagner, Tool Grind Lead at Acutec Precision Aerospace, Inc. in the U.S has been using CIM3D for 20 years and can’t imagine going back to an earlier version after trialling the latest release. He said: “CIM3D V9 is worth its weight in gold. The new look and feel is current and clean. One of the best features is progressive grinding – it gives the ability to see the exact material being removed as the wheel moves through.”

“The resolution of the graphics is far better than any previous version. Determining protrusion length, cycle time estimation, using the scroll function on a mouse to increment the position, magnification and cross-hair positioning are other great features that make using CIM3D V9 more efficient and productive.”

ANCA’s software experts are in-house ensuring the features of CIM3D are responsive, user-friendly and tailored to the cutting tool industry.

The new features save time while simulating the programmed tool path exactly as it would be ground on the machine

Exact Metrology Provides Updates on PolyWorks Inspector™ and Hexagon Romer

Exact Metrology Free Training VideosExact Metrology, a comprehensive metrology service provider, recently published informational videos on PolyWorks Inspectorand Hexagon Romer Absolute Arm on the company’s YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/ExactMetrology/videos.

A new feature in the PolyWorks Inspector™ is multi-piece editing. Users can now make changes in one piece that can be propagated to other pieces. If a user has multiple pieces, they can make changes like creating, editing features, alignments, reporting items, etc.  Then, these changes can be transmitted to past and future pieces/templates, create custom propagations or just apply the changes to the current piece. After choosing the propagate option, the user sees the changes in the other pieces and/or templates including report(s) or report items.

Another update of PolyWorks Inspector™ pertains to augmented GD&T. Center point features can now be reported with more capabilities. These include circularity, flatness, perpendicularity, etc. Users can also see MIN/MAX deviations and can view the color arrow deviation tags.

An online tutorial shows how to make sure the Hexagon Romer Absolute Arm is still in calibration. First, the bar artifact needs to be placed correctly to scan it. The ideal location is centered with the main axis of the arm at a distance away where it will be just below the elbow when the arm is extended out. To secure the bar, use pre-drilled tapped holes. They accept simple machinist fixturing to hold it in place.  C-clamps can also be used to secure the bar to a rigid table. When doing a length checkout, only the 15 mm master probe should be used.  Next, the user needs to open RDS Data Collector. Used with Hexagon Romer Absolute Arm, the software allows the operator to check the accuracy of the arm and probes and calibrate/align the probes and scanner as necessary. To start probing, move the probe to the first position. The probe needs to be properly seated in the conical feature at each end of the bar. Following the prompts in RDS, move the probe to the end conical features and pull the trigger to record a point. Once ten positions have been recorded, RDS will display the results. The MIN/MAX values should be below the standard values for the type of arm being used.
