TITANS of CNC

Crazy Modular Milling System from Kennametal. Have you guys seen these?

When I am at Massive Production Facilities... I love seeing the huge Aerospace & Automotive, Horizontal CNC Carousels loaded with huge tools... many extended to fit into hard to reach area's... You know what I mean? Like the 120-300 Tool Carousels!!! Knowing that these machines run 24/7... I have always been fascinated with the tooling and have tried to adopt the same lessons these companies learned into my own facility.

We cut a ton of titanium and inconel at our shop and as a business owner, having to buy all the $300+ dollar endmills... trust me it can be stressful. Well, we now use the same tooling I have seen in a huge amount top companies... The Duo-Lock Modular System... It's Crazy Awesome and incredibly Tough. Instead of a $300 endmill, I instead use a $120 endmill insert... that torques right into my extension or Duo-Lock Holder. The endmill is also a HARVI which is the same endmill that we recorded a 6 hour runtime in hardened inconel 718.

Anyways, figured I would give Kennametal some love since they have been stepping up big time... $200 Million invested in R&D Advanced Tooling this year... with 25 manufacturing plants in the USA!

New leadership has Re-invested Heavy in USA MFG... LOVE this 80 year old American company.

Still behind sandvik though, especially in turning. #primeturning. Kennametal does have some great TSC solid carbide and inserted tip drills that can push 10XD in length though.

Those endmills are great. You have to make sure that you place them properly into the holder. There is a mark on the shank that indicates how far to have it sticking out. If you clamp beyond that mark, the endmill will malfunction.

Don't forget the Haimer relationship there. Kennametal and Haimer tag teamed this project. Haimer is a far superior system. Having Kennametal join in makes it that much better.

Been using Iscar Multimaster at work for several projects. Great alternative to carbide. Even have done some custom ground profile on the tips after we get them in.

Sutton Mcgee what you think about these end mills? Aren't those the junk ones we kept having such a hard time with on the pivot bushings?

Fan of Hanita Endmills. Need to find a solution for the live tooling in my lathes and Swiss where we are only using a fraction of the flute length and when our tools wear I'm left with a lot of unused endmill length, re sharpening doesn't always work in this scenario.

Titan Ty Gilroy You Sir are always out front in everything you do! Great work brother!

What sizes are available?

Amazing products. They teamed with Haimer on the connection. Best modular system out right now but the price of the torque wrench.....ouch

Looks like Kennametal is finally putting the "R&D" to copy the SECO Mini Master which has been out for more than 10 years now. Congrats..

That's awesome, although I like to go with Iscar, similar tooling and the support is awesome, and Sandvik has helped me out a lot too, but I'm stuck on Iscar they have just great tooling all around👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Thank god for suppliers or Boeing St.Louis would have a real problem with all Defense Space and Security systems .... I have been in the trade almost 40 years I spent Time at Bldg 245 main machine shop is a joke 3 mil Mazak 5 axis never hardly gets turned on .. . Everything I put in shop was scraped at least once..... Sad at one time it was a beehive.... secret areas different story

You should see the ones I use for hand porting was a game changer out of little shop ! Cuts my time inn half and the customers don't lie at the race track having to do a set of cylinders heads in 2 days time instead of a 2 week deal puts money in my pocket again by my own hands a one day when I can afford to buy a 5 axis Cnc I will !

I would love to see it to and I work at one of those huge area space companies oops I work for the union I'm only allowed to run dinosaur crap and junk but better make good parts.

If you get your speeds, feeds and depth of cut to maximize productivity. Maintain the consistency of your cutting fluid you should be consistent on how long your tools last.

Ive crashed one of those before. Don't ever look away, even for a second when proofing a program! Lol. They do hog SS out pretty nice though.

Just did a test of those on our Makino A51NX. They did as well as the solid carbide version of it, in this particular cut. That torque wrench though.

Someone PM'd me... The Chuck is a Hydro-Force Hydraulic Chuck which is also from Kennametal.

Yeah I used the iscar ones years ago

Mapal has a similar system. Guaranteed runout within .002 microns.

www.fraisausa.com THE definition of "High Performance"......period!!!

Walter tools has more accurate connection and stronger results

These are great but sometimes these tools are brittle on the corners

I'm testing some from Ingersol right now. Kennametal works good for us also.

We have these olso from Kennametal i dont use it alot becaus i dont have work where i can use it for but good mills!

Awesome. We are having trouble with some really small holes ranging between .013 and .06 dia and i think this would be an excellent solution, I will show my shop manager these air spindles. I think we really need the extra RPM.

Awesome explanation most info I've found out about these and how they work

David Underwood please check these out. This guy is on the good

i noticed you deleted my question . did you buy this tool or was it given to you to promote?

Robby Gollob Jeremy Moreland Kyle Mathews Ryan Meadowcroft we should get some of these , using the same trunnion we are

Thank you TITANS of CNC. This is a great video! If anyone has any questions, thoughts, ideas, or concerns, I'm happy to help. My email via Air Turbine is dgunn@airturbinetools.com

Winner!!!! Brian Cummings who is a High School Advanced Manufacturing Teacher at Worcester Technical High School. Worcester Massachusetts, USA.

A few weeks ago I held a YouTube Contest on my Social Outlets... and Posted a huge amount of items that was going into the Prize Package. Well Brian jumped all over it and linked everyone he knew to my YouTube channel... and let everyone know that the package would be for his kids in his Machining class.

Just 3 years ago Brian started his position and had only 7 kids in his machining class. Since then it's grown to 21, and he has just received a grant to train an additional 12 at risk students. His team works closely with HTEC, GHF, SME and others... He also will be seeing 120 kids in the 9th grade exploratorium with the hopes that more will join his class and get excited about making things with their hands & minds.

Our Country is Amazing and it's teachers like this, in every town in America that are truly making a difference and providing skilled workers to our industries.

Congratulations Brian!!!

I also want to thank each and every one of you that participated in our contest. Thank you so much for the support!

On behalf of my my students at Worcester Tech, I want to thank you, Titan Ty Gilroy for all you are doing for manufacturing and education. I am honored to have helped, and look forward to awarding these items to my students when they complete their Titans of CNC Academy projects!. They will be so excited!

he deserves it, need a few thousand more like him in our schools nationwide! We absolutely need dedicated patient and driven teachers not just in schools but in prisons and other institutions. Manufacturing and machining is the core of our people and CNC is the way of the future. Molalla High School also has a new budding manufacturing program with a dedicated teacher that I would love to see explode with interest and capacity. My boys will be going there and my oldest at 13 has shown great interest in machining and science so I pray the program is ready to take him on. So happy for these posts and opportunities! Blessings to all!

Congratulations! So proud of you! After watching one of Titan's presentations, I wanted to hear more! He is such an inspiration! I believe Titan and You continue to make such a huge difference in the lives of the people you touch! This write-up is beautiful and I am so glad Titan sees what you do! Such an honor! Future generations are very, very lucky! So proud!

Mr. Brian Cummings was my high school teacher and let me tell you... he changed my life. When I first got into the shop it was just to be with my friends all honesty. After two short years I found myself love machining random little things. Mr. Cummings was someone I could talk about anything with all the hard times I was going thru with life. Went above and beyond with helping my education and I would probably be working at mc donalds if it wasn't for him. Im always thankful for that. Now 6 years after graduating I find myself now wanting to become a machine shop teacher to make the manufacturing in America the greatest of all times.

Training up the next generation of skilled tradespeople! Awesome work, Brian Cummings!

Congrats to my son in law Brian Cummings!

Awesome job brother keep teaching these youngins

Congratulations Brian!

Congrats Brian Cummings! Nice to see our local guy win!

So proud of my nephew Brian Cummings!

Nice. Way to go Brian Cummings !!

Words can't describe how cool Brian is. He nurtured me when I was just a baby in my manufacturing career and how ever far I get will be because he guided me in the right direction. Congrats. Great picture too

Great job Brian Cummings and Titan Ty Gilroy

Fantastic!!!

Congrats Brian Cummings!!!!!!!!

This is awesome! Congratulations!

Way to go, Brian Cummings!!!

So pkease help your join school

Its money has no pay

I joining your school

TITANS of CNC

TITAN teaches how to increase CNC Machining Production.

We live in a very competitive world when it comes to CNC Machining. It's important that we work smarter and not harder.

In this video TITAN shows you tools and techniques of the trade that allow his CNC Lathes to run unattended. This allows machinists to multi-task, while producing the maximum amount of parts.

Check out our new Academy User Group on Facebook—a truly productive learning environment where Teachers, Students, and Machinists can collaborate for success!

...thanks TITANS of CNC --very interesting the Rota Rack !!:):)

I made the plastic parts that are on that rota-rack machine. 💥

We have a Toyoda at work that holds some 40 some workpieces of all different shapes and sizes... there are 3 HMC's in a system of machines each with a 500 tool mag and a RGV robot to feed the work through the night. My boss does so much light out machining it's incredible... truly one of the best in the world....

But, you still end up with a tit on the part causing another op or finishing step. Why not go to a twin spindle machine to eliminate that?

Best show on TV, should be shown in class rooms in every school in the US and beyond !

What great service to our whole country..

Pondering it. Just need to figure out if it will be worth the time, expense, and worth having to deal with going to LA.

Hi Titan, what about EMO in Hannover, Germany? 😉

How about SouthTec or EMO?

Nope, other side of the country, so I go to Eastec. But I'd definitely go see you speak if the opportunity comes up 😉

Titan if and when you are in the Dallas Fort Worth area I'd love to know about it.

Festo will be there!

Titan. Recently u did a video on quoting. Parts. I was just wondering how do figure in fixturing and tooling cost. Is fixturing a one time cost or is it just something u let the part cost make up for.
