AMB 2016 - our main topic: high-precision bore machining in universal machining centres

At the upcoming AMB 2016, we will present our innovations in the field of high-precision bore machining in universal machining centres and tool technologies for conventional application to honing in hall 8 at booth B78 (8B78). This years main attraction has arrived, a DMC 60H linear made by DMG Mori. We will show our tool technologies coolEX LM (in-process air gauging) and coolEXact on this machine live and in cutting action.

We are looking forward to your visit.

AMB 2014 retrospect

This year again we are going to focus on the topic of honing on machining centers. On a standard horizontal machining center H2000 of the Gebr. Heller Maschinenfabrik GmbH with a cross feed device (u-axis unit) we will showcase our coolant expanding honing technologies coolEX®, coolEXact® and coolEX®float, as well as our step-mechanical controlled Xstep® honing and our FixedDiameter honing. The advantages of each single solution will be shown in a paractial live demonstration on components such as engine blocksconnecting rods and hydraulic valves including the CAM integration in edgeCAM.

coolEXact® - hydraulic honing with size control in machining centres (HMC/VMC)

The coolEXact® honing tool technology allows the classic hydraulic controlled honing on a machining centre with size control without technical modifications on the machining centre, using regular honing kinematics (expansion during processing), thus generating the classical cross hatch pattern at a defined honing angle.

coolEX®float - hydraulic honing with squint/offset correction in lathe machines

The coolEX®float honing tool technology allows the classic hydraulic controlled honing on a machining centre with adjustment to squint and offset in lathe machine, using regular honing kinematics (expansion during processing), thus generating the classical cross hatch pattern at a defined honing angle.

coolEXact® - hydraulisch gesteuertes Honen mit Maßabschaltung im BAZ

Die coolEXact® Honwerkzeug Technologie ermöglicht das klassische hydraulisch gesteuerte Honen in einem Bearbeitungszentrum mit Maßabschaltung ohne technische Modifikationen des BAZ und mit regulärer Honkinematik (Aufweitung während der Bearbeitung). Die klassische Honkinematik erzeugt den gewünschten Kreuzschliff im definierten Honwinkel

coolEX®float - hydraulisch gesteuertes Honen mit Achsausgleich

Die coolEX®float Honwerkzeug Technologie ermöglicht das klassische hydraulisch gesteuerte Honen in einem Bearbeitungszentrum oder Dreh-/Fräszentrum mit  Ausgleich vonAchsversatz und Winkelfehlern ohne technische Modifikationen der Maschine und mit regulärer Honkinematik (Aufweitung während der Bearbeitung). Die klassische Honkinematik erzeugt den gewünschten Kreuzschliff im definierten Honwinkel

coolEX®-honing of a hydraulic component, bore diameter up to 275mm, honing length more than 1000mm

The so far largest coolEX®-honing operation was sucessfully deployed in a hydraulic component, honing diameter 275mm and honing length exceeding 1000mm. 

The operation of the components including honing on the milling machine fully eliminates the need of a honing machine, thus giving enormous potential in saving operational and investment costs.

2-stage honing operation of a V8-engine block (AlSi17 hypereutectic) in a machining centre

The task was the prove of concept of a 2-stage honing of a V8 engine block in an existing machining center with KomTronic® U-axis system of KOMET®. The solution is a combination of coolEX®- and Xstep ®-honing tools to gain the advantages of both honing systems.

  1. Honing operation with Xstep®-honing tools on KomTronic® u-axis-system for dimensional control of the diameter
  2. Honing operation with coolEX®-honing tools to expose the silicon crystals in the functional surface of the cylinder

2-stufige Honbearbeitung eines V8-Motorblocks (AlSi17 übereutektisch) im Bearbeitungszentrum

Die Aufgabenstellung war die Darstellung der 2-stufigen Honbearbeitung eines V8-Motorblocks in einem vorhandenen Bearbeitungszentrum mit KomTronic® U-Achs-System von KOMET® . Zur Lösung wurde eine Kombination von coolEX®- und Xstep®-Honwerkzeugen gewählt, um die Vorteile beider Systeme zu kombinieren.

  1. Honbearbeitung mit  Xstep®-Honwerkzeugen auf KomTronic® U-Achse zur maßlichen Kontrolle des Durchmessers
  2. Honbearbeitung mit coolEX®-Honwerkzeugen zum Freilegen der Silizium-Kristalle in der Funktionsoberfläche des Zylinders.

Technical article on the topic of "honing with U-axis system" in the german magazin MAV

Komet® Komtronic® U-axis system in combination with Xstep® honing tools from from DIAHON, machining centres (MC) can be used for path-controlled honing (SME). This provides enormous economical advantages and a raise in qualiy. It allows smaller and medium-sized series to be pre-machined and honed in a single fixture on the machining centre. Loss of accuracy and time due to reclamping is eliminated. In addition process times are reduced due to the low honing allowances afforded by this technology.

Technical presentation at the IDEEN-FABRIK+ 2013 in Besigheim, Germany

The IDEEN-FORUM+ 2013 discussed current challenges for the economy, society and politics on the topic of energy efficiency.

We present our new developments in this context to the topic "change of modern tooling systems" with a technical presentation in the area of "honing technology for machining centres".

Good response to the topic "Honing with Xstep® and KomTronic®"

The cooperation (existing since the beginning of 2012) of DIAHON Werkzeuge GmbH & Co. KG and the KOMET GROUP GmbH (Besigheim/GERMANY) in the field of mechatronics (including u-axis-systems) has been very positively accepted by the market. First pilot projects have been successfully completed and the results are seen as the "Trend of the future - honing with Xstep® and KomTronic® in M/Cs".

AMB 2012 - review and outlook

Our presence at the AMB 2012 was strongly influenced by the topic of "honing on machining centres". The technologies coolEX®, Xstep® and fixed diameter tools were introduced, among others. Most of all, manufacturers of machining centres and contractors (job shops) are impressed by these cost-saving and efficient machining options and after the exhibit more promising projects were started. Even international visitors were informed about our new developments through our representatives from Italy and India. 

The presentation of the Xstep® technology using a live demonstrator from KOMET® was a highlight and clearly showed the advantages of the combination of the two systems. The cooperation with KOMET® showed the furure direction in the market and more joint exhibition appearances are being planned. 

In 2014 DIAHON Werkzeuge GmbH & Co. KG will again be represented with a booth at the AMB in Stuttgart.
