Engineering and Fabrication Movies

Our CNC lathe is used to produce turned components that are becoming rare and difficult to source. In this movie we are machining some 1/4UNF threaded studs that we use in the production of some of our mini components (clamp studs etc).

The machine is completely automated with a pneumatic piston that re-loads the chuck via a long bar feeder as each of the studs are parted-off. Screwcutting performed using a single point tool with a full form insert to ensure a good thread form - and is done at over 1000RPM whilst quickly retracting just before reaching the head.
