ECOROLL Corp. Tool Technology has developed a new process for completely machining short hydraulic cylinders on CNC lathes. The cylinder is premachined with the company's (SKIOC) skiving head and finished with a separate (GZ) roller burning tool after an automatic tool change. To ensure safe chip evacuation and fine surface finishes, both tools are equipped with internal lubrication.
