The bell house pictured is the latest part to be machined on our twin spindle Doosan Lynx lathe with live tooling. The beautifully finished part was picked off using wrap around pie jaws to support the thin wall, which had been machined to match the profile. The part measures 6.5 inch diameter.
The second part, a refill nozzle for a motorsport application was completed in one cycle on out Doosan MX Lathe. The 5 axis angled head allows us to approach the angled face straight on for simplified production and improved machining. The milling capability affords us to use a long reach radiused milling cutter to produce the deep groove in cycle.
