Chip Breaking Logan Clutch at Graff-Pinkert's Seminar

January 7, 2015 - 6:01pm -- Noah Graff
Last September Graff-Pinkert held a seminar at its facility in which we showcased a solution to the age old problem of long stringy chips that clog up screw machines when working with materials such as aluminum and copper. Graff-Pinkert's salesman Rex Magagnotti suggested that Logan Clutch could program an automated high/low clutch for a Wickman multi-spindle that would automatically execute intermittent cuts to break the chips. It was an adaptation of an old school approach of notching a cam that could peck drill to break chips. Logan Clutch's engineers successfully accomplished this feat and presented the product on a Wickman 1-3/4" at Graff-Pinkert's Screw Machine Innovations Seminar.

A Hydromat Just How You Want It

Hydromat 45-12 at Graff-Pinkert

Graff-Pinkert just got in two Hydromats, an HB45-12 bar machine, HB45-12 Chucker, and an HW25-12 bar machine! We offer hydromats with saw, bar feed and inverter, and then customers can choose from our wide selection of units to get the right configuration for their specific jobs. Why buy units you don't need, just because a machine happened to have those units? Because Graff-Pinkert is one of the few Hydromat resellers that actually stocks Hydromats at our facility, we have the flexibility to sell you a cleaned and painted machine that will arrive on your floor ready to run.
