Continuous cycle is not revolutionary. If fact, it was probably the predecessor to the high speed indexing automatic bar machines we know today. Due to the advancements in tooling, specifically carbide, the possibility of new opportunities using old tricks is emerging. The changing dynamics are allowing a shift in the methodology wherein layouts or processes are developed. This shift can open the door for today’s machines to run with more efficiency and less downtime than current constructs allow. How is this possible? The following is a detailed and somewhat technical discussion of continuous cycle and its application. Let us begin with the basics.

The place Peterson Tool Company has within the industry, affords us a unique perspective on the changing playing field from leaded to unleaded brass. The common obstacles that can emerge with almost every project are: chatter, chips, burrs, heat, tool life, part failure and reduced cycle times. It must be pointed out at the beginning of this discussion that there is no “silver bullet” in solving these problems. Each application has required its own idiosyncratic solution however the purpose of this paper is to highlight the treads that are emerging as it relates to insert tooling.
