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.
