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.

The Precision tool branch is one of the largest within the mechanical engineering market with over 70.000 employees, hundreds of specialised companies, a sales volume olf10 billion € and a growth rate of 8% in

2008 in Germany alone. The German and Japanese Markets are the most important ones within the mechanical engineering market, in this manner, the geographical scope of this patent provides are high enough market potential due to the sheer size and market power of Germany. Application industries for this technology are the major industrial branches, for instance automotive industry, precision engineering, aircraft and aerospace industries, naval industry or plastic manufacturing industry. Possible licensees for the technology are large German precision tool manufacturers such as Kennametal GmbH, Sandvik Coromant or Gühring oHG. In recent years, similar tools have been developed and marketed by Ceratizit Deutschland GmbH, Sandvik Coromant, Seco Tools GmbH or Paul Horn GmbH giving this technology litigation potential depending on possible infringements.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
