CNC machining of large hydraulic manifold
Case Study 1
Eland Engineering Prototyping Project
To CNC machine a series of prototype hydraulic manifolds for a new design of friction welding machine.
Manifold CNC machined on our largest Haas VF7
Using the clients 3D CAD model and drawings we programmed the parts using our Delcam CNC machining software. The large size of these manifolds demanded use of our largest CNC machining centre. Machining was required on all faces, the large threads being thread milled. The biggest challenge was the depth of the oil galleries and ensuring that oil ways connected correctly at a depth of 500mm.
