Milling Machine Conversion
Machining Application: Conversion of a Bridgeport milling machine to an automatic grinder that produces saw blades: Several components were manufactured including the X and Z axis.
Machining for slide inserts that hold punches which punches out can lids for food manufacturing.
This project involves a large crankshaft that drives the slide insert for a food-can lid punching machine. The crankshaft was 90″L x 8″ Diameter Processes included grinding the crankshaft, installing the centers and establishing the throw of the crank. Once this was completed the crankshaft was rough turned and the journals were grinded.
