Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky (TMMK) churns out 2,200 engines and 4,400 axles per day…from scratch. From start to finish the engine line takes one hour. They build a four cylinder engine every 37 seconds and a V6 every 72 seconds. Keeping that production humming with minimal scrap requires precise cutting tools. Getting good tools relies on the ability to measure tool quality. And that led Toyota to the Walter Helicheck tool inspection machine.
