Subcontractor Exploits High-Speed and 5-Axis Machining to Raise Competitiveness

Some parts are produced in half the time An aluminium billet was put on a new Brother TC-22B-O vertical machining centre shortly after it arrived last summer (2010) at the Crediton works of Adaero Precision Components. The finished component came off in 13 minutes, whereas previously it took over twice as long (28 minutes) on one of the subcontractor's older machining centres, which are...

Collet-Ready Rotary Tables and Indexers Reduce Job Cost

If you've been using fixtures to grip parts on your rotary device, you already know how much operator intervention is required for setting up, clamping and locating the part, and changing from one job to another. And let's not forget about the design time and machining involved to produce the fixture itself. All of this accumulated time lengthens the production time and increases the cost of the...
