Microfinishing Yesterday-Today and Tomorrow from Micron to Nano and Ångström
Stahli Go Their Own Way in Machine Building
Thanks to the newly developed DLM 705 bridge construction machine line the flathoning technique proves even more economic for the machining of series of flat pieces made from nearly all materials, from aluminum and steel to hard metal and hard ceramics.
Work pieces with thickness from less than 0.5 mm up to 50 mm and diameters from 1-200 mm are machined in the micron range. Stock removal rates up to 0.5 mm are common in astonishingly short cycle times from <1-10 minutes for 10-1000 pieces per load, according to work piece size, stock removal and machine type (pictures 5 + 6).
