Process Change Cures Burrs

An engineering company was unable to eliminate burrs in the manufacture of a precision cylinder component.  The issue impacted quality, decreased efficiency and increased handling, which resulted in an increase in cost.

After analyzing the problem, KCS developed a new machining process for the hole-drilling operation.  Using a 5-axis machine, KCS developed a specialized routine that created a difficult-to-machine chamfer on the underside of the component.

The KCS solution completely eliminated burrs and elevated both quality and efficiency while reducing cost.
