The Challenge
The customer is manufacturing master brake cylinders out of aluminum die cast for the automotive industry. They are using an HMC Twin Spindle with a 1000 PSI (69 Bar) blaster oil soluble coolant.

The customer needed to reduce the cost per part while maintaining the quality of the through hole size and straightness.

The GEN2 T-A product not only maintained the quality of the hole size and straightness, but it also achieved optimal chip control at a high feed rate.
