A subcontracting company used a tool with a plug-on back spotfacing head to apply the spotfacings on the fastening holes in the flanges. He was looking for a new solution because this method was not efficient enough for the large production volume because of the necessary manual interventions. Another aspect to improve was the safety of the machine operators.
The customer has reached its goal to apply the back spotfacing fully automated process without any manual intervention. The cycle time dropped considerably.
The machine operators emphasized the easy handling of the tool and the improved safety.
The decision maker added the better quality of the spotfacings to the advantages of the new process.
