Manufacturing Automation

In our continuing effort to improve manufacturing efficiency in our China factories, we've added Trim Die Stamping and CNC machines to each die-casting station to automate our secondary processes. Once the casting is removed from the mold, it is transferred to the Trim machine for automatic removal of any gates or flash, and then to the CNC machine for processes such as drilling and tapping of bosses and holes. We've also added automated polishing machines for better casting finish prior to chromate conversion and powder coat painting. Automating these processes not only reduces manufacturing time, but ensures they are performed uniformly and precisely every time.
