Hybrid Rotary Transfer Machines
Hybrid (CNC) Rotary Transfer Machine
This rotary transfer machine completed machining of a Diesel Engine Thermostat Housing at a rate of 109 parts per hour. High Speed Milling of 3 mounting faces was completed with a 3-axis CNC module using a PCD Diamond Face Mill. The part geometry required a free state flatness on those 3 faces of .003" and counter bore depths of two bores within .0015" This rotary transfer machine was chosen by the customer over 3 horizontal machining centers because it produced in one shift of operation what would have taken 2 shifts by the machining centers.
