Beveling long parts made easy with the MSI "Double Line" ChamferMate Setup

by: Stephen Parker
Recently, MSI has been getting more and more inquiries asking about solutions that would allow customers to chamfer or bevel longer sections of solid bar, as well and pipe and tube. MSI offers custom setups to allow customers to chamfer or bevel both solid bar and pipe applications. We take 2 of our ChamferMate® machines (machine selection dependent on overall OD size) and incorporate it with a detailed feed table system. This setup allows the machine to pick and place bar/tube/pipe onto a feed roller and into the first machine. After the first end is finished, the piece then gets placed on a 2nd roller system, and the opposite machine is fed into machine number 2. After both ends are processed, the part is then placed into an exit rack for easy grouping and bundling.    Read More

DrillMate - Safety Wire Bolt Cross Drills

by: Stephen Parker
DrillMate Safety wire, or lock wire, is often used in conjunction with safety wire bolts to add an extra precaution in securing parts. The process ensures that critical bolts do not loosen because of vibration, or other forces, and attached parts don't fall off.  When creating safety wire bolts, you need machines that are able to drill small diameter holes through the bolt head or body. For this stage we recommend the DrillMate. The DrillMate can efficiently cross drill safety wire bolts in regular and heavy hex heads, socket heads, 12 point bolts, and round bar. This makes the DrillMate ideal for drilling bolts for safety wire.  Read More
