Increased Production: 315 pcs/shift

Scrap reduced: 715 pcs/month

Total Savings: $4000/ month

Part: Internal sprocket with three flanges.

Operation: Machine flanges.

Tolerances: .170mm runout between the flange faces and the ID.

Production Requirements: 15,000/Month

Part Issues: .001mm of misloading (from machine automation) results in .0025mm of runout. Tried: Original method was to use a 3 Jaw chuck, relying on machine automation to load the part square against the workstop.

Recommendation: Switch to Positrol Drawdown Chuck that centers and pulls back to eliminate dependancy on machine automation.
