Application: Stamped Metal Bushings
Challenge: When a leading stamped metal bushing manufacturer came to Haven with their productivity challenge, Haven did not hesitate to take on the challenge. Haven is well known for its fast and reliable Double End Finishing equipment, but fast is relative. Standard feeds and speeds for a given material and size usually dictates the machine’s cycle rate; generally, between 2 and 3 seconds. In this Case Study, standard cycle rates were not fast enough. In order to compete with off-shore competition, the cycle time had to be reduced to between 1 and 1.5 seconds. Haven engineers worked with the customer to design a tool set and feeding sequence that would obtain a stable process at those speeds. The result – average 1.20 seconds. The combination of servo spindle feed control, along with a custom designed part clamping system, produced precision finished parts with no tool chatter. The quality obtained at these speeds is remarkable.
Results: Haven’s ability to innovate solutions that specifically address customer’s needs is what we do best. Haven’s flexibility, both mechanically and electronically, demonstrates the breadth and depth of our capabilities. Haven is a full service, turnkey supplier to the tube processing industry.
