Threadmilling Revolution is here to stay

Threadmilling Revolution is here to stay In the last 18 months or so, i have noticed that more and more of our metalworking machine shops are starting to use Solid Carbide Thread Mills rather than standard Spiral point or Spiral flute taps. Just a few days ago, Mike at Lake Shore Machine Corp had this to say, “They last so much longer and Im cranking out parts 3 times faster now. Not only that but were producing a better quality product than we were before.” It always excites me when i hear good news or get positive customer feedback, so I wanted to learn as much as i could about the benefits of Thread Milling. I came across and awesome article which explains all the features and benefits of using a Solid Carbide Thread mill. For you convenience and reading pleasure I have copied that article below for you: The Thread Mill Revolution is here to stay One of the most challenging metalworking applications is the production of internal “J” threads in difficult-to-machine aerospace materials such as 718 Inconel, titanium, and 15-5 PH/17-4 PH stainless steels. Traditionally, “J” threads have been produced by machine tapping, hand tapping or a combination of both methods. But even with the latest high-tech tap designs, problems with inconsistent performance, low tool life, poor thread quality and tap breakage continue to plague shops that produce aerospace components. Given the high cost of aerospace metals and machining time, and the fact that internal threaded holes are normally completed in a final operation, thread-quality problems requiring rework or the scraping of a part can be extremely...

Midwest Industrial Supply Suns prepare for last game

Yesterday marked the final practice of the year for the Midwest Industrial Supply Suns 4th Grade Basketball team. Much like real life, this season has been full of obstacles to overcome. The Suns were the last team assembled in the Germantown Bucketeers League. As a result, started out the season understaffed. While most other teams roster had 10-12 players, The Suns had to make due with 8 players virtually all season. The Suns also lost 2 player along the way, but added one player, Aiden Buss, who was a great help down the stretch. “The entire season has been a great learning experience, not just for the Kids but for myself as well”, stated Head coach and Owner of Midwest Industrial Supply Inc., Timothy Dorfner. After starting out the season 0-3, Coaches Timothy Dorfner and Brent Castmann went back to the drawing board and began to focus extra hard on the fundamentals. They also managed to simplify a basic 3-2 offense, which the Midwest Suns have been perfecting all year. The Suns new focus was to “Do the Little things well”. One step, One play, one second at a time. There was a bit of a learning curve but in the 4th game of the season, it finally started to come together. The Midwest Industrial Supply Suns won their 4th game 26-8 and then defeated a very tough Heat team in a hard fought defensive battle. With their record at 2-3, the Suns would face their toughest challenge yet, The Celtics. “We all remember what the celtics did to us the first game of the year”, said coach Timothy...
