Quick changeover for new workpieces
Triumph has stringent requirements when it comes to flexible production. Technical improvements to components mean that the grinding process needs to be constantly re-adjusted. The Lean Selection cam makes it quick and easy to produce this wide range of high-quality parts. Small series require rapid machine changeover, which is where the machine’s easy operation proves itself. “Our setup engineers who work with the Lean Selection cam can change over the workpiece and associated program,” said Jack Sellers.
He goes on to mention an example of rapid support for unusual requirements: “We grind very small concave radii on the camshafts. Due to a flange positioned in the center of the workpiece, we had to come up with a solution to ensure that the spindle housing did not collide with the workpiece. JUNKER supplied an integrated turning station – a clever, custom-made solution.”
Extremely pleased with the service
JUNKER assists with the integration of new machines. Triumph employees completed training for programmers so that the new machines would be up and running right away. Jack Sellers said: “The trainers from JUNKER were highly motivated, capable and explained everything. This meant that we had a good understanding of the machines right away.” The Production Engineer is also highly satisfied with the service in England and Thailand. “If we have any inquiries, JUNKER is quick to respond and suggest solutions. As a whole, we have had a very positive experience with JUNKER Service.”
