Parting and Grooving Tool (Stechwerkzeug)

18.01.2010
1. Summary

High precision tooling is the cornerstone of mechanical engineering enabling faster and more accurate production of machines and components for all the industrial branches. Within precision tooling Hob extruding punch tools allow turning and punching machines to function.

This invention protects a particularly efficient and inexpensive parting and grooving tool for the German market, which is the second largest world wide market for precision tooling. The main benefit of this series-production ready tool is comprised by its simplicity of production as well as handling despite its high precision and multi functional capabilities. In this fashion, this parting and grooving tool reduces set-up time for machines increasing productivity as well as reducing through-put time with lower tooling costs for the machine operating company.

2. Technology
The main goal of this technology is to provide a parting and grooving tool with the minimal amount material usage. As seen in the figure, the tool is constructed with a replaceable cutting bit (the red component in the middle) which is inserted into a wedge with a V-profile (main claim of the patent) for maximum precision, improved fixing and a better distribution of forces during cutting. This cutting bit is the only piece of the tool suffering from abrasion and wear due usage making it easily and quickly replaceable reducing setting-up time and downtime for instance for turning machines. The small size of the replaceable bit not only reduces material costs for production but also enables a simpler manufacturing technology to be utilized.
3. Development Stage

The parting and grooving tool has been developed up to series-production readiness and is being currently passively marketed by the inventors over the internet. However, the inventors lack the capacity or resources to unlock the full market potential of the technology.

4. Market / Opportunity

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
