Drake Manufacturing Services of Warren, Ohio, with its representatives, VMT Technologies India, will display a high accuracy work head and linear motor demonstration unit in its booth (Hall 3B/Booth A118). The unit will help visitors visualize the technologies used in Drake machines.
The display features Drake’s high accuracy work head and the various components of the linear motor platform including linear motor and magnets, rails, and roller cars and 8-million count Heidenhain encoders.
Linear motor drives mean no drive train windup, backlash, or lead error due to aging ball screws, couplings, or bearing blocks. Drake will also demonstrate its built-in Part Smart programming and menu screens on a Fanuc CNC control system. With Drake’s Part Smart menus, no programming knowledge is required. The Part Smart approach allows users to run parts and changeover jobs with menu-driven ease.
In conjunction with IMTEX, Jim Vosmik, Drake’s president, will present, “The Latest Developments in Fine Pitch Thread Grinding” on January 23 at the International Seminar on Machining Technologies (ISMT). Attendees will learn about the latest developments in wheel, machine, and dressing design for fine pitch thread grinding.
Drake has many machine installations in India and throughout Asia including thread grinders, ball screw grinders and profile gear grinders for a variety of applications. Local Indian sales, service and support is handled by VMT Technologies-Bangalore.
