Automotive

  • Flexible Machinery for Automotive ApplicationsKaufman flexible CNC multi-station rotary transfer manufacturing system
  • Controlled by 20-axis ball screw CNC with B-axis pallets

Cast aluminum motorcycle brake calipers for five different models are machined complete on a five-station machine. Twenty-eight OP 10 and OP 20 operations are performed including milling, drilling and tapping plus circular interpolation of piston bores and seal grooves to 1.5 CPK criteria.

Two unattended machines in a single cell can machine one cast iron suspension knuckle every 35 seconds. The system machines every knuckle feature – bearing bore upper strut, control arm, lower ball joint, ABS mount, caliper pads and mounting holes. Fully flexible, this heavy-duty equipment machines a right, then a left knuckle. Integrated for automation with robotic loading.
