The combination of one-shot tool and combination tool reduce the number of tools used. Reduction of the tools lead to cycle time reduction and productivity improvement.
- Cycle time reduction by one-shot tool
- The integration of rough-finishing process by combination tool
We have in-depth knowledge of machining aluminum parts. Our tool package for steering housing components provides you with the following benefits:
One shot tools
The result of extensive research and deve-lopment activities is the “one shot” solution for many of the machining operations on steering housing components. The “one shot” solution makes the roughing pass tool redundant and a further benefit is reduced machining time. This solution has turned out to be very successful in a number of production environments.
Like with roughing and finishing tools, a number of other tool designs have been developed in order to combine several operations in one tool. This is possible for many operations – like milling / reaming and reaming/grooving.
Fewer tools needed
The combination of our “one shot” and “combination tool” approach has lead to a reduction in the number of tools needed. In fact, with the tooling solution from KYOCERA UNIMERCO , you will probably need less than half the tools suggested by our competitors. Less tooling means shorter cycle time and higher productivity.
With our tooling package, we have also achieved excellent surface finish results and great Cp and Cpk values. In some applications, we were asked by customers to generate a specified surface on some features. This meant that the surface finish had to be between certain values. This was achieved with a completely new tool design, where you can actually “dial in” the surface finish.
