The Live Event
On Thursday, Dec. 16, 2021, ZECHA went live for the first time in the company's history to find out the following: "How long will our IGUANA tool run?"
To find out, coins in various designs were milled non-stopp from high-quality 50 x 50 mm cooper blanks during the live event. All this was done with just one single double-edged 1 mm ball nose from the IGUANA family.
The goal was clear: One tool, one machine, and the task of covering milling paths.
The challenge not only proved the special features of the award-winning IGUANA technology, but also heralded the start of sales of the new 935 lines - both at ZECHA and AlienTools. This means: all dimension of the new lines can be ordered immediately in the ZECHA and AlienTools shop and are expected to be in stock as standard from the end of February.
All information about the IGUANA tool family and highlights of the IGUANA MILLING CHALLENGE will continue to be available on the ZECHA website and on our YouTube channel.
The first positive view of the tool was confirmed after extensive examinations on the in-house measuring equipment: the tool is almost undamaged even after an incredible 640+ milling hours and covered milling distance of almost 27 km. The results under the C-View, REM and Nano-Focus speak for themselves:
- Shape deviation of the tool < 0.002 mm
- No damage or changes to the layer structures
- Finely finished workpiece surfaces with Ra < 0.3 (N4 - N5 quality)
