HYBRID MANUFACTURING
A customer in the piping field needed machined flanges to connect a variety of their pipes to tanks, engine blocks and manifolds. The traditional method for producing these flanges was to machine them from bar or plate. With PLSMFG’s ability to utilize various technologies to reduce costs and improve quality, we were able to provide a laser cut blank from plate that was subsequently machined in critical fit areas to achieve the same functional capability at a 20% cost savings from the existing method.

Hard turning can be a cost effective alternative for shops looking to streamline part processing.
Hard turning is typically the turning of a part or barstock of harder than 45HRC on a lathe or turning center. 

Measurement on multi-axis machine tools is set to take a great leap forward with the introduction of a new version of Renishaw’s Productivity+™ suite of PC-based probing software. A key improvement is a new multi-axis option that allows more creativity and efficiency in machining processes, which supported by Renishaw’s high accuracy Rengage™ 3D technology-based touch probes and new ultra-compact radio probes, gives process engineers and machinists a wide choice of flexible process solutions

Hard Turning and Grinding on a Single Machine
Combining multiple technologies on a single machine makes the machining process more complex, but the advantages of consistent integration of such functionality can be worth the effort.
