An American subcontractor to the automotive industry faced the problem that the manual deburring of his filter tubes was too labourious and unreliable. In addition, too many bad parts were resulting. His target was to automate the deburring process and to machine the part completely on his vertical milling machine.
The appropriate tool for this task is:
Tool: COFA C6/6.2/S
Blade: COFA C6-M-0006-A
- Speed: 1200 rev/min
- Feed: 0.2 mm/rev
The complete machining of part on the milling center replaces the manual process. At the same time, the customer achieves a reliable process and reduces the number of bad parts significantly.
- Manual process
- Bad parts
- Less quality checking work
- Better quality
The resulting longer cycle time is more than compensated by the above savings.
The operators are happy because of the smoothly running tool. Even more happy is making them the fact that the unsafe manual deburring is history.
The plan manager commented the process change as following: "The tool works awesome for this application, we just placed an order for more tools."
