Rod & Wire Machining Head

Rod & Wire Machining Head

WirePointing.jpgA wire and rod machining head which mounts on the pointing station of a CNC wire and rod forming machine used in spring making.

The machining head consists of a balanced housing for tungsten carbide roller guides and turning or pointing tools. The housing is mounted to a high-speed spindle.

The turning tools are used to reduce the diameter of the wire or rod when swaging or extruding are not practical. This can be for the purpose of thread rolling or other such process. The pointing tool machines a chamfer on the end of the wire or rod. These operations are usually done as the first in the sequence.
