  • Out with the old ...

    Just because a piece of equipment functions doesn’t mean a shop should keep using it. Mast Motorsports realized that a couple machine tools at its Walled Lake, Mich., facility had become technologically obsolete and, therefore, needed to be replaced. The Nacogdoches, Texas-headquartered company manufactures automotive components, such as cylinder heads, intake manifolds and induction systems, for street performance and racing. Mast primarily machines aluminum and plastic.

  • Hurco 5-Axis Mill Saves Jaguar Sub-Contractor 2+ Hours Per Part

    PhillipJames.jpg

    Philip Whitehouse, managing director of Philip James, said: "One of the front knuckles for JLR was proving problematic to machine. 


    "While most of the milling and drilling could be carried out on one of our 3-axis Hurcos, the component then had to be transferred to a CNC jig borer for five holes to be interpolated at three different angles – and therefore in three set-ups.

    "We decided to buy a Hurco VMX42SR 5-axis machining centre to interpolate all the holes to within ± 10 microns in one automatic, 20-minute cycle, much faster than the two and a half hours it used to take on the jig borer."

    Apart from decreasing the cycle time, the new 5-axis process eliminates the need to use a tooling hole for component alignment prior to boring. One-hit machining on the Hurco also allows Philip James to swap between producing the two hands more quickly. This is important, as JLR often cannot wait for a full batch of, say, 20 left-hand and the same number of right-hand knuckles to be delivered in one consignment. - See more at: http://www.engineeringcapacity.com/news101/sector-news/automotive-and-transport/knuckling-down-for-jlr#sthash.7nnIdrMO.dpuf​
