Brake Adapter
 

The brake adapter highlighted here exemplifies our ability to manufacture precision CNC machined products and provide value added services. Composed of D65-45-12 ductile iron, this product utilized our precision CNC milling capabilities and included operations such as drilling, tapping, boring, and straddle milling. Our CNC 7 axis flex machine cell features an incoming conveyor, robot load/unload an automated bolt driver, and a pack out robotic conveyor.

The customer supplied drawings called out dimensions of 8.5" in length and width, 1.25" in height, with tolerances of ±0.002". This high volume production run (180k per year) required the use of a comprehensive quality control system including inspection gauges, a vision inspection system, inspection of threads and bolt presence, and function gauge checks.

To assist the customers manufacturing process, parts are shipped with bolts that cannot fall out during shipping; this eliminated one operation at the customer plant. To learn more about this project, or the processes used to manufacture it, see the table below or contact us directly.
