An Asian aircraft turbine manufacturer wanted to increase productivity by replacing a partially manual back counterboring tool. After machining the back spot faces, he was also bothered by the entirely manual deburring process.
|Workpiece||Low pressure turbine stator housing|
|Counterbore||with chamfer on the inner bore edge / Ø13 mm|
|Material thickness||4.0 mm|
|Estimated production volume||50 parts (3,200 bores) / year|
HEULE proposed its SOLO counterboring tool, distinguished by its ease of use and high production reliability. Thanks to the construction of a customer-specific blade that simultaneously applies a chamfer to the bore, the previously required additional deburring process is no longer needed.
