Canadian moldmakers who want to be in the know about the latest and greatest machinery, plant-floor automation technology and support products, the Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show (CMTS) is the place to be from October 17 to 20, 2005.

CMTS is the country’s largest forum for domestic and international manufacturers to showcase their wares.

Boasting some 600 exhibitors, CMTS combines five trade events: the Canadian Machine Tool Show, the National Factory Automation Show, Metal Forming Equipment, Tooling & Accessories, as well as Measurement Technology & Quality.

CMTS will be held at the National Trade Centre, Exhibition Place in Toronto, Ont., where attendees are invited to network with their peers, pick the brains of industry experts and attend educational seminars.


This year, CMTS’ seminars focus on several important issues, such as competing in a global marketplace, lean manufacturing, high-speed machining and radio frequency identification (RFID). These events are designed to help even the smallest businesses improve its bottom line.

Iscar reveals the Multimaster Concept for multifunction milling

For multifunction milling, including profiling, shouldering, slotting and T-slotting, ISCAR Tools Inc. offers the Multimaster Concept.

The Multimaster Concept is based on various interchangeable heads with a threaded connecting part, which can be mounted on a single steel or carbide endmill body.

Rigid and stable clamping of the cutting heads on the various shank types is ensured by the combination of a cylindrical, a small conical, and face contact surfaces between the two elements — the interchangeable head and the body.

The heads are available with two, three, four and six cutting edges in ground shapes, as well as in more economical sintered versions.

CimatronE 7.0 includes better design and cataloguing capabilities

Cimatron Technologies Inc.’s CimatronE 7.0 is the latest version of the company’s CAD/CAM solution for toolmakers.

Including applications for mold design, NC and electrodes, users get a single work environment for all aspects of design with no need for time-consuming, error-generating data conversions.

New tools enable easy creation and modification of mold-base and sub-systems like runners, ejection systems and cooling systems. Users can also create any surface shape using solid, surfaces and wideframe design.

The Rapid Preliminary Design feature lets users generate rough designs of cooling, ejection and runner systems that can be easily changed with no design overhead.

Advanced catalogue tools give toolmakers easy access to parts from all standard catalogues as well as the ability to create user-defined catalogues.

Triple R coolant filters removes chlorine, hydrogen sulphide, metals

Triple R America has released a new series of machine tool coolant filters, with a particle filtration efficiency of 20 microns.

The Triple R BR Series Element is for biological control in machine tool coolants and cooling towers. The filter can remove or reduce the amount of chlorine, hydrogen sulphide, as well as metals such as lead, mercury, chromium, arsenic, nickel and iron.

Applications for the Triple R BR Series include machine tool coolants, heat transfer fluids, industrial process fluids and industrial waste liquids.

Manufactured with high-purity copper-zinc fibres. This alloy allows electrons to flow freely in the presence of an electrolytic solution, such as water. By transferring electrons from one atom or molecule another, reduction of pollutants and oxidation occurs.

Also, the electrochemical and catalytic potential of the copper-zinc alloy provides all the energy needed to facilitate treatment.
