IMTMA Training Centre

Selection & Application of Tooling for CNC Machining Centre

Date : 30 to 31 July, 2019

@ 12/5, D1 Block, MIDC Chinchwad, Pune

Last date for registration 24 July 2019


With increasing manufacturing costs and decreasing profit margins, it is extremely important for machine tool users to choose the right type of tooling that will produce accurate parts at lower costs. Application of right tooling can boost throughput and improve the quality of finished parts drastically and also reduce machining cost by as much as 20%.
Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers’ Association (IMTMA) is organizing a 2 day training programme on Selection & Application of Tooling for CNC Machining Centre on 30-31 July 2019 at IMTMA, Pune.

Focus Areas

  • Fineries of milling process; Types of milling cutters and their selection for various operations like - face milling, poketting, profiling, etc.
  • Calculation of power & torque; Spindle T - S characteristics
  • Selection and Optimising parameters for the different operations by referring to catalogues
  • Types of coatings and their applications; Applications of advanced tooling materials - Ceramics, CBN and PCD
  • Types of drills; Selection of drills for various drilling applications
  • Typical machining parameters for drilling operations
  • Tools and their selection for reaming and boring applications
  • Latest developments in CNC tooling - Hydro grip and shrink fit holders, balancing of tools and holders
  • Demo of practical exercises and real time machining in VMC illustrating face milling, pocketting and usage of wiper inserts
  • Demo of Drilling and reaming applications, Demo of rigid tapping and thread milling operation

Key Take Aways
