New CNC Machined Cam Tower Covers

Postby basarabam » Mon Aug 07, 2017 1:46 pm

After years of sitting idle on my 1980 project I am starting up again. Getting another head made for it and decided I would like my own Cam Tower covers. 1 done, 1 to go. Will have it powder coated and then a fly cut across the lettering to make them shine.

I have a Tormach PCNC 1100. Also have access to several larger machines like a Flow Waterjet, 2 Manual turning lathes, several small and large CMMs for measuring and reverse engineering parts, etc.

I started a program at work where kids take a tour of our facility and can sign up for a 5 day workshop to go through the entire manufacturing process, Engineering, production, quality. The same equipment that I have in my lab is also installed in their schools. (Currently installed in 2 schools as a pilot and we are going to branch out to each school in Alabama).
