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.

Im Focus: Ultrafast snapshots of relaxing electrons in solids

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!

When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...

Im Focus: Quantum Sensors Decipher Magnetic Ordering in a New Semiconducting Material

For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.

Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
