ServoCam Turned 12L14 Threaded Shaft
| ||A client from the industrial brake sector approached General Engineering Works with the difficult task of turning a six inch thread on a long steel component. Previously, this process was quite time consuming and typically involved a separate operation. Our client requested that we seek out a more efficient solution to this process.|
Each component measured .4375x13 inches and was constructed from 12L14 steel. Through specially engineered tooling and the employment of our advanced ServoCam CNC screw machine, our team developed a method of machining the part while maintaining a (±) .004 inch precision tolerance. And, using our advanced technology, we were able to drop this part complete up to thirty percent faster than through previously employed processes. Our highly skilled machinists were able to successfully find a time-efficient solution to this difficult process, obtaining absolute client satisfaction.
