Revolutionise your process. The customer is manufacturing valve bodies for the general machining industry using a Femco horizontal machining center with semi-synthetic through-tool coolant. The parts are made from A36 steel. Previously, the customer was achieving a cycle time of 5 minutes and 13 seconds. The customer needs to decrease cycle time and improve performance overall. Allied’s Revolution Drill with indexable inserts achieved a 3 minute and 13 second cycle time, a 38% decrease over the competition along with an increased tool life from 32 holes to 48 for an overall improved process. The Revolution Drill met the customer’s request and successfully reduced costly machining time.

Time is money. A contract machine shop is manufacturing specialised hydraulic manifold blocks made out of low carbon steel. They are using a KIWA HMC with 69 bar coolant through the spindle. They are mounting 16 blocks on one tombstone at a time. Turning to Allied for improvement, the customer wanted to reduce the costs of machining the manifold blocks. With the AccuPort 432 drill and finish port forms completed in one operation, pre-drilling was no longer required. Furthermore, the replaceable insert design eliminated regrinding.
