The Many Ways Ford Benefits from MQL
Clean machining using minimum quantity lubrication has allowed Ford’s Van Dyke transmission plant to become fundamentally more efficient and effective at manufacturing six-speed automatic transmissions.
Color-Coded Plant Floor Monitoring
Freedom eLog from MAG Industrial Automation Systems is plant-floor monitoring software designed to provide around-the-clock intelligence on machine uptime. The software uses color coding to identify various machining events. For example, on Web-based reports, the software displays machine uptime in green.
MAG Expands VMC Production
In response to changes in the global economic environment, Erlanger, Kentucky-based MAG Industrial Automation Systems is adjusting its product portfolio, production sites, sales and technical support network to improve its position in the VMC segment. The company says it will develop larger 2- and 3-meter models of recently introduced VMC product lines, which will be introduced in October 2009 at the upcoming EMO show in Milan, Italy. In the first quarter of 2009, the company’s Chatsworth, California facility will increase VMC production to shorten delivery times, says Mark Logan, vice president of business development and marketing for MAG Americas.
Manufacturing Systems Designed For Continuous Or High-Volume Production
The company offers two manufacturing system design approaches for the automotive industry: Agile Systems and the Global Transfer Line. Agile Systems consist of CNC machines and inter-machine part handling automation, built for production of engine blocks, cylinder heads, transmission cases and other parts using eit
Different Directions In Machining Center Motion
Some machining centers have begun to appear that use resultant motion in less elaborate ways. That is, these machines use the resultant motion of different elements moving in different directions to achieve the motion along X, Y or Z, but they do so within machining center designs that are considerably more like standard machines.
Minimum quantity lubricant can save money, improve tool life and improve the part finish. But it may involve changes to both the equipment and the processing strategy.
