A manufacturer of laser machinery was in need of a precision component for one of their products. Composed of T6 aluminum the part would require precision CNC turning on our LU25 live tool lathe. The live tooling capability allows us to eliminate the milling set up time from the process, saving time and extra part handling, as well as increases efficiency by up to 25%.
Measuring 1.500" in length, the component had an outside diameter of 1.650" ± 0.001", an inside diameter of 0.8756", and met tolerances of ± 0.0003". After machining the parts were deburred using our vibratory system, and a black anodizing was applied. We produced 60 of these parts in 12 days and delivered them to the customer in Olathe, Kansas.
