Designed, drew, ordered and commissioned clamping fixtures for two CNC machines to completely machine electric motor housings in one operation. One machine was for vertical CNC turning (@ 300 m/min. finish turning speed), the other, a horizontal spindle CNC machining center. I also wrote and debugged these and numerous other CNC programs.
Outcome Drastic reduction in cycle times. Perfect quality, especially on concentricity of turned diameters.
