Allied Machine introduces threaded lathes sleeves
September 11, 2023 6:30 pm
Ideal for smaller job shops using ageing lathes, the threaded lathe sleeves enable coolant flow and high-speed drilling capabilities in the manufacturing industry.
Wohlhaupter India Pvt. Ltd. offers expert engineering, technical support, and onsite application services within India for Wohlhaupter GmbH and Allied Machine and Engineering Corp. The leading manufacturer produces hole-making and finishing tooling systems for the manufacturing industry in India. The company introduced threaded lathe sleeves as a stocked-standard solution to allow coolant flow to newer style holders without rear pipe taps. This innovation is particularly beneficial for smaller job shops using older lathes that lack through-turret coolant capabilities.
Allied Machine aims to make advanced cutting tool technologies accessible to ageing machines previously unable to handle high-speed drilling. To achieve this, customers in the general machining industry can directly connect an external coolant line to the back of the sleeve using standard ½ NPT or ½ BSP pipe fittings. This feature lets users connect external high-pressure pumps directly to a turret station, maximizing pressure and flow for drilling long and deep holes.
As the manufacturing industry pushes for faster drilling solutions, drill bodies have evolved with additional coolant inlets and outlets, leading to a decline in the traditional rear pipe tap method of inducing coolant. Despite these innovations, Allied Machine recognizes the importance of not alienating businesses built around reliable machinery. The launch of threaded lathe sleeves is part of Allied’s ongoing commitment to bringing small and large machine shops into the new era of drilling technology.
John Weniger, product manager, explains, “At the same time, with continued innovation comes the risk of alienating those who have built their businesses centred around machinery that has stood the test of time. Because of this, the launch of the threaded lathe sleeves is “just another example of Allied’s continued effort to bring machine shops, small and large, into the new age of drilling.”
