This US american customer became aware of the HEULE range of products at a major trade show. In the course of the following discussion he explained the details of his application. Soon was it obvious that the present process using a manually pluggable back spot facer offered some optimization potential.
Due to the large bore diameter and the diameter of the back counterbore, HEULE's GH-E tool was used. The GH-E tool traverses the bore from the front, extends the blade and then applies the counterbore. It retracts the blade into the bladehousing again and moves out of the bore.
Tool: GH-E 50
Blade: Indexable insert
- Speed: 390 rev/min
- Feed: 0.1 mm/rev
The customer saves over 12 hours per part over the previous operation.
