New Start Up CNC Tooling Package

Need to tool up a new CNC machine?  

GDP|GUHDO has introduced a special priced CNC tooling starter package which provides a substantial savings on highest quality tooling.  This kit includes 8 HSK tool holders (choice of style based on collet style preferred (SYOZ, ER40 or ER32) and  corresponding 8 collets (choice of sizes).  In addition, the customer can select 14 solid carbide bits (4 downcut and 10 compression styles) and 10 drill bits based on sizes needed.  This package also includes a tool setup fixture, torque wrench with collet key and a spoil board cutter, which comes mounted on an heat shrink tool holder.  Finally, a box of replacement insert knives for the spoil board cutter are also included.

After receiving feedback from our customers regarding a desire for flexibility to get what is actually needed in a starter package, we customized this tooling package to allow the customer to choose which bits are needed.

This package is available at a special  price of $3499.00.

GDP|GUHDO Tooling for Flip-Flops?

This is one of our customers running a test to cut something a little unusual… GUHDO tooling is great for cutting everything from composites to foam as we can see from the video.

 

 

Proper Use of Drill Bits on CNC Machining Centers

DSC_0019Using solid carbide drill bits in a standard collet on a CNC router often leads to vibrations causing a poor finish and tool breakage which can get expensive if you are drilling hard wood or composite materials (as a note – PCD diamond tipped drill bits are recommended for composites). When compared to spiral router bits, drill bits are run at a slower RPM generally and while breakage might be tolerated if you only drilling the occasional hole, it can become a problem with production runs of greater volume.  The reasons for this problem are two-fold:

DSC_0009

1)      Your using a 10mm shank bit (w/flat on shank):   Most metric drill bits have a 10mm shank with a flat area machined onto the shank (for set screw tightening).  When inserted into a 10mm collet this flat spot prevents the collet from concentrically gripping the shank all around. (see image).

HSK 63 F Toolholder with collet and drill bit with flat spot. The collet does not grip the shank all around.

The solution: a small drill adapter (6381) that goes between the collet and the drill bit fills this space and allows the collet to concentrically grip the shank.  This adapter has a 10mm cylindrical shank (no flat) to go, which accepts the 10mm shank w/flat drill bit, tightened with a set screw as is standard on boring machines.

2)      Using cylindrical shank bits (no flat on shank): Many in-between or uncommon sizes of cylindrical shank drill bits don’t fit snugly into the closest collet size available and therefore slip or chatter during the drilling process.

6380

The solution:  a Universal drill adapter (6380) which comes in two diameter ranges, infinitely adjustable within the specified range.  (accepts 1-13mm diameter drills, or 3-16mm diameter) and is available in HSK63 F, ISO/SK30 and SK40 version.  The 6380 Universal Drill Adapter has high-clamping power and accuracy, is Made in Germany, and can be run either clockwise or counter-clockwise.
