A manufacturer of helicopter components is machining the ID of a pressure-sealed rotor housing. The part is made from stainless steel, and they are using an Emco Turn CNC Lathe with 300 PSI (21 bar) coolant through the tool to manufacture the parts.
With need to improve production, the customer requested a solution to reduce cycle time and eliminate part distortion.
The ASC 320 successfully reduced the cycle time. Also, the customer gained better chip control, better hole size, and a cleaner finish on the product.
