Drilling/Boring Machine


We were requested to design and build a machine to drill and bore (3) three 1.890 dia. holes in a  cast-iron part while holding .0005 tolerance over an (8) eight hour shift at a rate of 195 parts per shift.  We mounted Suhner spindles on our own AMA manufactured slides driven in and out by a servo-motor and ball screw.  With all three axis operating at the same time we were able to hold +.0005/-.0000 tolerance over a shift while producing a part with a 56 second cycle time.  This far exceeded the customers requirements.
