Machine: Makino A81NX
Material: Aluminum

The Situation

Customer is machining a hydraulic manifold. Due to various problems with casting quality and consistency they decided to machine it from a solid cube of aluminum. This eliminated the quality issues, but increased the part cycle to approximately 17 hours.

The Solution

Customer implemented Caron Engineering’s TMAC MP system, hoping to achieve 10% cycle time savings.

Actual result: Slightly over 24% reduction in cycle time
