CorocutQD addresses the issues of deep grooves and parting off with long overhangs and now expands the offer of inserts and durable tools with over- and under-coolant.
CorocutQD addresses the issues of deep grooves and parting off with long overhangs and now expands the offer of inserts and durable tools with over- and under-coolant. The system is supported with plug-and-play adaptors for easy handling and efficient coolant supply. For bar feed manufacturers, process security in terms of good chip control and long reliable tool life is the key to an efficient production. To meet these needs CoroCut QD combines strong tools and inserts with rigid clamping and efficient coolant supply. Good chip control is achieved by combining over- and under-coolant on all tools, which keeps the temperature down at the cutting edge for less tool wear and a more stable performance.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
