Precision Machining as it Relates to Molds, Dies and Build to Print Tooling

Engineering of Workholding Solution for a Turbine Casting for the Automotive Industry

(click on thumbnail to enlarge)

B&J Specialty, Inc. engineering department is staffed with people committed to providing our customers with innovative solutions that meet the parameters of their design and build standards. Utilizing advanced solid modeling software along with precision calibrated digital scanning equipment, we assisted a customer in the automotive industry engineer a workholding solution for use in finish machining a turbine casting.

Careful part preparation is crucial to the accuracy of solid model data creation, so we cleaned the existing turbine and applied a Magnaflux spray to ensure part integrity. We utilized our high resolution optical scanning equipment to generate high accuracy measurements of the intricate contours, complex angles. Working with the customer-defined tolerances, we employed parametric modeling techniques to derive a watertight solid 3D model that would enable development of an effective workholding solution, as well as tool and die components for this multi-faceted part.
