A customer manufactures and maintains components for offshore oil rigs. They use a Johnsford VMC with 1000 PSI (69 bar) coolant through the tool. The part they are machining is a component for a locking collar for an offshore pipe wrench made out of alloy steel.
Seeking to improve their production process, the customer wanted to decrease machine cycle time.
The ASC 320 not only reduced cycle time, but it also decreased the cost of production while increasing shop capacity.
