4 Bring Cooling
A first of its kind,
the new retrofit
IN) is a quick and
way to bring the
benefits of internal cooling to the
live tooling used in CNC
turning operations, says the company. reCool, which converts
an existing tooling system to include through-coolant in as little as two minutes, is highly effective in getting coolant to the
cutting edge. It achieves standard speeds up to 6,000 rpm and
pressures up to 300 psi, with higher speeds and coolant pressures available upon request. With reCool, live tools featuring
external threads (ISO 15488/DIN 6499) can machine faster, and
last longer, says the company.
Soft blank top
jaws from Dillon
OH), provide a
smooth gripping surface, low T.I.R.
(Total Indicator Reading), and have
greater holding power due to increased part contact. These are
available in 1018 steel, and 6061 aluminum, as well as 4140,
8620 and A2, brass, delrin, or stainless steel to suit virtually any
CNC or manual chuck project involving turned or bored parts.
• The smooth jaw surface, which leaves little or no markings on the finished surfaces.
• The ability to be removed and later reused for the same
operation, or machined to grip an altogether new part,
until the blanks are consumed — making them ideal for
machine shops which routinely handle parts with different
shapes and geometries. The soft blank top jaws can be
custom bored, turned, or shaped.
• An ideal design for second operation finishing work such
as shafts, gear blanks, wheel hub, and bearings.
Featuring high power LED technology and remote control operation, the GL-30814 Camouflage LED Golight Stryker from Larson
Electronics (Kemp, TX) offers excellent power and performance

• An advanced LED
lamp, instead of the halogen bulb normally standard with
these models, giving it a 50,000 hour lamp life and excellent resistance to damage from vibrations and impacts.
• Improved beam quality in the form of crisp white output
with none of the yellowing or beam artifacts common with
• Remote control operation, with a single handheld remote
capable controlling on/off and vertical/horizontal movement
from up to 100 feet away.
Point Of View Software
New from AutomationDirect (Cumming, GA), Point of View
is powerful software for developing SCADA, HMI, and
OEE/Dashboard projects that can be deployed anywhere.
Designed for most Windows supported platforms, including
Windows XP, 7, 8, and Server editions, Point of View projects
can either run locally on a development workstation or be
downloaded to a remote workstation to operate using Point
of View runtime software. A Point of View project is created
using the powerful development
tools. A project
and scanned I/O.
drivers communicate in
real time with
remote I/O devices, and other
equipment. Animated HMI screens and OEE dashboards give
plant personnel a graphical view of the process. Integrated
modules include alarms, events, trends, recipes, reports,
scriptable logic, schedulers, a security system, and a complete database interface.
