    I would just focus on maintaining at least 1 insert in the cut at all times. Shouldn't be too hard with the wide step overs normally used with high feed mills, but could depend on the parts you need...

    Funny you mention that. I believe Marcus has some experience with that particular market. There were some pictures of a "unique" mold posted maybe a year ago.

    We see about 35-50 degrees centigrade during normal operation. Our machines alarm out if any servo motor reaches 100 and I believe the warnings start at 80. I would definitely be looking into the...

    Final update for me.

    Ended up finding a fadal 4020 for a screaming deal, so I'm just going to make this part and the rest for this project myself.

    Looks like you might already be done, but I would also say to never do this without water or a properly setup mask/filter setup. I've seen it shorten the lives of multiple people.

    You might reach out to a custom screw manufacturer and get them quoted. If they are already setup to run custom cap screws, adding a drilling operation that isn't very deep shouldn't be difficult....

    You're chances of finding them pre-drilled in a useful tap drill size is probably pretty low.

    How many are you expecting to need?

    This is a great suggestion. I might be able to change it to use a 10mm pull out dowel pin and use the threads for retaining the tie rod end.

    I'm going to close this out for now and go back to the...

    I guess it's closer to a crank, than a crank shaft. That's just what popped into my head when I first drew it. Updated the title.

    Not really. It's a small crank under 3" long that will mount on a gear motor for a health care application. 3/4" bore with a keyway on the motor side and a 10mm offset boss for a tie rod end.
  13. RFQ: Prototype - QTY 1 - Steel or Stainless

    Do yourself a favor and buy 2-5 PCD finishing inserts. DNMG or VNMG with a small nose radius. They will get you incredible tool life, mirror finishes, and they help a lot with holding tighter...

    The walter WDN10 PCD inserts are the best I've found off the shelf. Something like this with the 0.2MM radius should work great as a finishing tool. If you only finished 6061 with it, you could...

    I see flexibility as probably the largest influence on which automation solution makes the most sense. If you are only ever going to run 1 part in very high volume applications you can design...

    Yep. For high production jobs they seem to work best. Only downside is you shouldn't run them dry for very long.

    Here is an article that explains it. I can't seem to find the documentation for...

    It was a significant cost adder.



    We haven't had one seize up, but I have pulled one out that was pretty shot. You could rotate in the input shaft and get nothing on the output.
