As a customer from the automotive industry was struggling with quality problems that led to deliveries being rejected. Therefore, the customer was looking for an automated solution for its countersinking problems.
- Bore-Ø: 20.0 mm
- Diameter counterbore: 39.86 mm +/- 0.25
- Material: Forged Steel
- Machine: Mazak HMC
- Machining: Horizontal machining
- 85'000 parts/year with 5 bores each
The BSF-0-1283 countersinking tool was proposed to the customer as a suitable solution.
- Speed: 50 m/min
- Feed: 12 mm/min
- Coolant: Internal coolant
The new machining process is now fully automated. By using the BSF, the customer can complete all work steps in one cycle, thus, reduce the use of manpower, reduce material movements and prevent rejects. In addition, the quality of the cutting has been increased and at the same time it has become more consistent. The result is improved productivity.
