The Challenge

A customer is manufacturing lawn mower components from low carbon steel for the heavy equipment industry. They are using a CNC Machining Center with a water solution as a coolant to manufacture their products. The part is an adjuster for a lawn mower deck.

Turning to AMEC, they needed to increase tool life and reduce overall tooling costs. They were also becoming concerned about carrying costs, tool inventory, and tool change down-time.

The AccuThread 856 proved to be an effective and more efficient tool for the customer to produce their products.
