Large Part CNC Turning and 2nd operation CNC Milling of a Cast Ductile Iron Spindle Housing for the Commercial Mowing Industry

 

hubHere we worked with a new customer, who did not have a source for castings, and provided them with castings, which we sourced and then machined, to their specifications. This heavy duty spindle housing is used in commercial mowing.

Employing a combination of turning, milling, drilling, and tapping to create the finished spindle housing, each one measures 11" in thickness, 7" in length, and weighs 58 pounds. There is also a surface finish roughness call out of 64 RA.

The tightest tolerance is +/- .002. Each heavy duty spindle housing is palletized before being delivered using just-in-time delivery, based on the customer supplied forecast and timeline.
