A Chinese subcontractor to the Automotive Industry was looking for a more efficient solution to drill weight reduction holes into a gear disc. The present production process included two manual chamfering operations (front and back chamfering) outside the CNC machine.
The HEULE representative proposed a standard VEX-P drill-chamfering combi tool. This tool allows to machine the complete hole in one setting and without any tool change.
Chamfer blade: GH-Q-M-03846
- Cutting data drilling:
Speed: 1500 rev/min.
Feed: 0.2 mm/rev.
- Cutting data chamfering:
Speed: 1000 rev/min.
Feed: 0.1 mm/rev.
By using the VEX-P tool, the customer reduced the production time considerably by combining the two process operations into a single one.
Besides the elimination of the chamfering as a secondary operation, the customer estimates the improved quality and the reliable process.
