MACHINEABLE OR NO?

MACHINEABLE OR NO?

RE: MACHINEABLE OR NO?

On your small, rectangular groove can you put a radius equal to the bottom radius on the ends and bottom edges? That way it can be machined with a ball type end mill (assuming not-to-tight tolerances).

RE: MACHINEABLE OR NO?

As it is right now, I can't think of another way to make this to assumed-tolerance requirements unless it was with a sinker/ram EDM.

Adding some fillet radii in a few places where there are sharp corners will, as BrianE22 stated, allow for a much wider field of manufacturing possibilities.

RE: MACHINEABLE OR NO?

Are you making one or one million?

The Help for this program was created in Windows Help format, which depends on a feature that isn't included in this version of Windows.

RE: MACHINEABLE OR NO?

What about the other half of the fitting? You need a volume for the check-plate to swing into, and I don't believe that cannot be made from a standard fitting.

RE: MACHINEABLE OR NO?

Can you just change the design and remove the sharp edges? Seems straight forward

White Paper - How ESI is Helping Move New Medical Device Product to Market Quicker & More Cost Effic
Early Supplier Involvement has long been a strategy employed by manufacturers to produce innovative products. Now, it almost seems like a necessity. Because decisions made in the design phase can positively affect product quality and costs, this can help add value to OEM bottom lines. This white paper will discuss many facets of ESI, including why it’s so valuable today, what challenges limit the benefits of ESI, how cost is impacted, and more. Download Now
White Paper - Moving to a Driverless Future
This white paper describes what we see as the best practices to support a sustainable engineering process for autonomous vehicle design. It exposes how to use simulation and testing in common frameworks to enable design exploration, verification and validation for the development of autonomous cars at a system, software and full-vehicle level to drive a mature product development process for automated driving.

Research Report - How Engineers are Using Remote Access
Remote access enables engineers to work from anywhere provided they have an internet connection. We surveyed our audience of engineers, designers and product managers to learn how they use remote access within their organizations. We wanted to know which industries have adopted remote access, which software they are using, and what features matter most. Download Now
