of the diameter the test piece was about 2.5 in diameter and
seemed not to be a problem for the machine. Next I tried different
speeds and feeds and found that a very fine finish was achievable.
Thought up a design of a USA key chain product and made
a sketch (see Fig. 1).
with scaled penciled in letters (see Fig.2). This helped people visualize my idea.
Also made rough Mechanical Desktop drawing.
Scaled down the USA drawing to fit on 1 stock so that
when we cut the blanks we will only have to finish the short side
of the piece(ie; 1 instead of 3) which will make the fixturing
design easier and save us production time.
Also took on role of getting stock to work with.
Fig.3). Then Took the Mechanical Desktop file and made it into a DFX file In preparation for running the product in the Light Mill.
that when we went into production with the key chain we could
quickly and accurately locate the stock (saving production time).
and set up the tool paths. Next we trimmed the parameters of the
key chain so that we were only cutting the radii and the short sides
of the outside of the part thus preventing us from cutting through
the jaws of Jasons fixture.
Then we proceeded to cut the prototype. Besides a few
finish problems the product looked pretty good.
(Namely the mill). Jason yourself and I spend all night trying to
USA into the EMCO mill.After having no luck trying to use the
EMCO software to write tool paths we down loaded our old DFX
file into the EMCO and after trying everything that we could think
of we still had no program.
