3D CNC Tube Bending

I was absolutely mesmerised by this process when I first saw it. The machine shown in this video is a Nissin 3D CNC Tube Bender. You can see the machine bend tube in any direction to form complex 3D forms. It is even possible to bend continuously variable curvatures. Imagine the design optimisation that is possible with such a flexible …

3D Laser Cutting With A 5-Axis Head

When you add a laser cutter to a 5-axis CNC machine head you get flexibility in cutting. This Mitsubishi V220 Laser Cutting Unit shows just how flexible it can be cutting profiles in a pressed 3mm A5052 Aluminium form. Mitsubishi also show how the laser cutting head handles 8mm SUS304 Stainless Steel, 8mm A5052 Aluminium, 16mm SS400 Mild Steel but only …

High Speed Video Of A Cutting Tool

It’s always good to see how something works by viewing it in slow motion. You get an understanding of the physics involved in the manufacturing process. This video shows just how an Ingersoll Cutting Tool machines away material on a CNC mill. You can see the chip formation in great detail as the material is removed from the stock.
