20 May Dawson Shanahan to showcase advanced precision engineering capability at Subcon 2014
Dawson Shanahan, a leading precision engineering specialist, is to promote its full range of precision CNC machining and cold forming services at Subcon 2014. The exhibit is a must-see for visitors wishing to benefit from the highest degree of flexibility in machining, previously unheard of short cycle times and a more sustainable manufacturing programme. Already renowned for its combination of in-house cold forming, precision CNC machining and assembly techniques, Dawson Shanahan now offers even greater speed and efficiency with its Triflex Modular multi-station CNC machine.
Dawson Shanahan’s Triflex Modular multi-station CNC machining centre offers simultaneous five-sided machining without re-clamping, turrets with up to eight tools, tool changes during the machining process, extremely short chip-to-chip time, and separate loading and unloading stations. Each CNC unit has four fixtures mounted on a central trunnion that indexes to each machining station. This allows each fixture to index 360 degrees independently with X, Y, and Z axis movement. The result is an astonishing 300% increase in machine output compared to machining the same component with other twin pallet CNC machines.
Precision engineering and cold forming experts will be on hand to discuss how Dawson Shanahan’s full range of design, prototyping and manufacturing services for the production of custom engineered components can meet your requirements. Visitors to Subcon 2014 will find the Dawson Shanahan exhibit at Stand K6 on 3-5 June at Birmingham’s NEC, Hall 3.
