Double Sided Milling
Rectangular part, machined on all 6 faces in under 1 minute.
This component we make on a Citizen M32 Slidinghead lathe. The unusual feature about this program is that we simultaneously mill both sides of the components at once.
One side is milled off the platen and the other off the turret. Its not often that its really worth the extra programming to do this but in this case the volume of 10000 off did justify the extra effort and the cycle time was reduced by about 10-15 seconds which lead to a saving to the customer.
