“Unique” shaper / stacked tooling

GUHDO is well known for providing high quality tooling for CNC routers, panel saws, edge banders and other woodworking machines. The company is also well versed in producing stacked tooling systems (insert style) for the line of wood-working machines offered by Unique Machine & Tool Co.   Whether your machine has a single, double spindle or has an arbor to accommodate stacked tooling, consider allowing GUHDO to partner with on your next tooling requirements . We offers highly accurate, balanced insert tooling for cope, stick, raised panel and outside door edge profiles. Stacked tooling sets are supplied per customer specifications, including sets with a zero diameter (as shown below) allowing for incredibly quick profile changes. The tool design process provides  punctual quotations, detailed drawings for approval, and the confidence that your tooling will arrive in a timely manner, ready to make your company profitable! For more information you can contact us with a brief description and attached drawings or give us a call at 800-544-8436.

Aggregate Heads

Are you struggling with moving your work from one machine to another?  Do you have to re-position the work-piece on your machine?  Is your machine unable to perform specific criteria, which causes you to turn down business?  If you have answered “yes” to any of these questions, continue reading this post!

Generally, companies consider purchasing an aggregate head for a CNC machine when an additional axis would reduce material handling and speed up production or when existing equipment does not have the capability needed to efficiently perform a job at hand. Since there are many styles and types of aggregates, choosing the right one is essential.

There are three primary considerations:
1) How long will you be “in the cut?” (Excessive heat resulting from the cutting action can cause aggregate failure.)
2) How are you cutting the material? (Will you be primarily routing or sawing?)
3) What type of material are you cutting? (Is it a dense material or a soft material?)

Aggregate head bodies are constructed of aluminum, which keeps the weight to a minimum on your machine spindle and in your carousel.  This also allows the heat to dissipate, keeping the aggregate as cool as possible while it’s in the cut.  Internally, our aggregates use beveled, calibrated gears to ensure there is minimal “backlash” in the gearing.  As you can imagine, there is a lot of energy transferred to the gearing when the aggregate first enters the cut.  That energy is transformed to heat.  Based on this scenario, how you keep the aggregate cooled is critical to the longevity of the aggregate.

Viscous grease is the most common method of cooling/lubricating the gearing.  A greased gear-lubricated aggregate is ideal for routing and light scoring of material.  But, with viscous grease lubrication, there is a “catch”.  During operation, the temperature of the aggregate cannot exceed 185 degrees Fahrenheit.  That is the maximum heat index the grease can withstand. If the aggregate temperature exceeds 185 degrees, the grease will burn off, creating a metal-on-metal situation with the gearing, greatly increasing the temperature internally.
