This particular component being a forging, shows all aspects of BEC ability in turning, milling and drilling. As you can see, to produce this part to drawing SPECIFICATION you have to START RIGHT to FINISH RIGHT.
The first step was to machine the stator bore end with M25 thread with a turned diameters held to 0.02mm, this entailed profile machining jaws for one our TMC15 TURNING CENTRES to hold as accurately on the forging as possible.
This then gave a datum position. We then held on this diameter to machine the two flats using our AJAX BROTHER milling centre, this in turn then gave datum position and a good strong work holding point we then machined cone end and thread this completed turning operations.
We then manufactured special drilling fixtures to machine edge filter hole 4.0 mm DIA -0.00/ +0.012 at 6 DEG this in turn met up with the feed hole 1.8 dia at 67 mm deep this also produced dowel location holes.
Then all other bores had to be profile milled using our VMC1000 milling centre as they were not concentric to outside diameters or on the same centres as each other.
Parts were protected on all operations ready for despatch to Delphi Saltilo Mexico.
Full ISIR (INITIAL SAMPLE INSPECTION REPORT) and SPC (STASTICAL PROCESS CONTROL) were required
We are proud to say that these were the first prototype for new Chrysler Daimler diesel engine
