In the case of the small production runs for thin-walled or spatial components, it is often more efficient to manufacture the product by cutting from the whole material, since it reduces the expenditure amount when creating molds or dies. The much-lauded 3-D printing is not a realistic alternative, in most places, due to its higher prices and weaker structural characteristics when making smaller components.
Components are worked from both sides and our dual-spindle turning benches give a distinct advantage in both the precision of the work and the speed of production.
The dimensions of the material used for this product undergo little change when experiencing changes in the temperature. The precision needed for its manufacture is very high since the next steps in its production process are completed by a robot.
The quality of the components is important for a vehicle’s safety. Every component receives a unique number and the running values that define its use are collected into an aggregate protocol.
Every part of this kind is unique and complex with many steps on every side, openings, and threaded openings. Precision is required when working on the very first component because it is the only one. If there is a mistake in production, it can be very costly.
When producing components with complex geometries, it is useful to use ingot or forgings as blanks. This way, the amount of material that is removed by cutting is less.
Every side of the component has precisely-drilled openings, where pivot axes will be installed later. This is an important component, which allows the operating table to pivot and slant. This is to ensure the preciseness of the production, for instance, as surgeons complete their demanding work, nothing can be wobbling or jamming!
Hours of work in the production center are needed to make a component with complex geometries and highly processed interior surfaces. The blank is formed from thick aluminium using a water cutter.
Today, elevators in skyscrapers must offer a fast and silent ride, which would not be possible without high-precision components in their drive units.
Stainless steel is widely used in medical devices. This material is extraordinarily tough and causes serious wear on the cutting instruments. In order to make sure that the high-quality standards are met, work on stainless steel needs to be checked more frequently than with other materials and the tools need to be replaced before the wear starts to impact the quality of the product.
