Case Studies in cycle time reduction. From 1+ hour to 8 minutes


Peck Drilling showerhead holes on a Fanuc Robodrill at 70"/min (1778mm/min): A tough application with micro drills requiring super precision.

View the automatically loaded 0.90 hp 50,000 rpm 625XDT peck drilling @ 10"/min in the video section below. In the clip an 0.012” end mill is drilling 0.02" deep per peck to a 0.140" final depth in 6061 aluminum.

Each hole took only 12 seconds.

This program could not be accomplished on a standard Robomachine spindle at 10,000 rpm or slower.

The video shows Air Turbine Spindles® patented double turbine 602 also on a Fanuc Robodrill drilling 0.018" deep in 6061 aluminum with a 0.016" drill without a peck - advancing 70"/min (1778mm/min).

With the standard machine spindle the program ran for an hour @ 7"/min (178mm/min).
