Easily punch, shear and notch metal with a Scotchman ironworker, delivering consistent results for higher-quality fabricated parts. Cut, slot or notch on a Scotchman Circular Cold Saw for burr-free, high-quality volume parts. The powerful machines are built to last in any fabrication shop environment. Sanding Sheets 3M Auto, St. Paul, Minnesota, introduces 3M Precision Shaped Grain Sheets, engineered to act like a cutting tool by slicing through metal up to five-times longer for increased productivity. The technology in the sheets continuously fractures to form sharp points and edges, providing optimal mineral breakdown for a significantly longer lifespan. 3M Precision Shaped Grain Sheets are available as a two-part system in three grits—80-, 180- and 320-grit. Cylinder Hone Sunnen Products Co., St. Louis, introduces the SV-15 honing machine that combines the DNA of its Cylinder King machine with a Siemens touchscreen PLC to provide more features, convenience and greater precision and consistency. A real-time display of the bore shape allows the operator to confirm bore straightness and make on-the-fly adjustments to correct taper— or simply confirm the action of the auto-dwell feature that efficiently concentrates honing action in tight spots. The control automatically switches from roughing cycle to finishing cycle. SHOP TOOLS & EQUIPMENT SHOP TOOLS & EQUIPMENT
