Affordable Technology at MACH 2018

  • If you operate machine tools, YMT Technologies claim that a visit to MACH Exhibition stand H19-600 will prove extremely beneficial. The company has a wide range of advanced, affordable machine tool accessories being demonstrated, including several advanced new products making their MACH debuts.

    Since YMT’s inception in 1981 the business has developed into one of the UK’s most progressive Machine Tool companies. In addition to supplying high quality machine tools to the UK industry, YMT’s profound understanding of machine tools and their applications has allowed it to source an unmatched range of cost-effective equipment that enables machine tools to realise their full productive potential. Rather than being an added cost, the efficiencies and production increases made possible by YMT machine tool accessories, provides users with increased rapid ROI’s and improved profits.

    YMT MACH exhibition staff will be demonstrating the advanced abilities of a Hedelius 5 Axis Machine, two YCM Machining Centres, one a 3-axis, the other a full 5-axis machine, a Goodway CNC Turning Centre and an Erowa Automation System. These machine tools will be fitted with a range of YMT accessories to help illustrate the impressive advantages they provide.

    Amongst several YMT products making MACH debuts is the Detron 5th Axis GFA210-S CNC Rotary table. Part of the large Detron range, the robust, accurate device features a super pneumatic clamp, a worktable diameter of 210mm and a centre Bore Diameter 65H7. Also new at MACH, the company’s 5th Axis RockLock zero point fixtures. The robust, extremely secure manual system has a quick change action and provides high levels of accuracy.

    Another advanced YMT production aid making a bow at MACH is the Alfa-Set 33 Swift, bench-top tool presetting machine. The accurate, cost-effective model has an X axis of 250mm a 380mm Z axis. YMT’s Alfa-Set range of presetting machines allow accurate tooling offset data to be supplied to CNC machines, enabling programs to be run at optimal levels and components to be produced within tolerance.

    Ideal for high-speed, precision machining, YMT will be exhibiting the renowned Kojex range of collet chucks. Suitable for use in demanding sectors such as Aerospace, F1 and for Medical applications, Kojex holds the record for the smallest outside nose diameter in the world for their mechanical collet chucks.

    Carefully selected by the company’s tooling division, Tuscan’s competitively priced high-quality vices and chucks will be exhibited. The comprehensive range meets all types of machining needs. From the popular 5th Axis workholding and dovetail fixtures, to single station vices, vacuum systems and Tuscan 3 Jaw and 4 Jaw chucks, Tuscan can fulfil the vast majority of needs

    Also being shown will be the well-respected Zurn range of Spindle Tooling. The Zurn range of high-quality ER Style Collet Chucks, BT-P30/40 Face and Taper Tooling, Shell Mill/ Face Mill Holders and End Mill/ Side Lock Holders have earned a global reputation for their accuracy, reliability and the ability to withstand the day-to-day demands of modern machine shop environments.

    Put through their paces at MACH will be YMT’s highly efficient Diebold range of Heat Shrink Machines and Toolholders. This famous German brand encompasses more than 10 different cutting-edge technology inductive units. Diebold heat shrink units are available as fully automatic or manual units and higher specification models feature integrated water-cooling systems.

    Visitors to the YMT stand will be interested to see the innovative angle heads and speed increasers from the recognised world leader in the field – OMG. As a result of many years of development OMG now produce a multitude of advanced angle heads to suit the majority of applications. The OMG TA series come in a variety of designs, however if a customer needs a more specialised product, OMG will design and build an angle head to suit the most challenging of applications.  In addition to angle heads, OMG supply the MO series of Speed Increasers that have a ratio of up to 1:8 and can run to an exceptional 35,000 RPM.

    Given today’s demands for the production of ever more accurate components, the maxim ‘it’s not made until it’s measured’ has never been truer! YMT’s ability to provide high-quality, cost effective products that cover all aspects of the manufacturing process, including inspection, can be demonstrated by the range of precise Tschorn measuring instruments being demonstrated on the company’s MACH stand.
