A big thank you to member Al Goldberg for sending these photos and video clips from the recent EASTEC show. I can never remember if cameras are allowed or not at the show and I never take mine. All photos, video and text are by Al Goldberg.
The Eastec 2008 show was mostly about production tooling and accessories along with samples of digital programming. I didn't see any large machines except for a few that demonstrated high speed tooling along with current uses of the digital technology.
In addition to some general views, some of the more interesting things are:
img_0138.jpg shows a probe that moves over a complex surface, gives a readout of dimensional accuracy of the surface. img_0141-1.jpg is what the machine looks like.
img_0151.jpg to 0155-1.jpg are various views of a high speed milling machine;
img_0161.jpg is the rotor of a complex centrifugal pump made by a CAD-CAM program that guided a tool from above to create the upper peripheral passages then from below to form the lower passages. The programmer is a former German toolmaker, says he did it in one day.
mvi_0156.avi is a movie clip of it in action.
mvi_0160.avi is another mill in action.
