Sometimes You Just Have To Find A Way
Aug 28, 2014
Our customer started out wanting a fairly routine length and diameter screw. Then they stretched it… and then stretched it some more until their request turned into an M3x50 mm long screw. We had to make tooling. There are 7 carbide lined tools in seven separate stations, which must all match. The longer the screw, the harder they are to match. Here is a picture of the stretched screw. It has been giving us problems for 3 days. We will figure it out...we always do, it's our commitment. Once we say we’ll do it, we keep trying until the job is done.
