Brake calipers are the assemblies housing vehicle brake pads and brake pistons. As a critical safety component, brake calipers are made from nodular cast iron, and require custom tooling for generating radii and flat surfaces while maintaining critical surface finishes.
YOUR MANUFACTURING CHALLENGES
- Milling brake pad locations with minimal setting and adjusting time.
- Reducing cycle times for milling faces while maintaining quality and reliability.
- Producing spot faces with maximum productivity and reliability.
- Drilling numerous holes with low cycle times, high quality and reliability.
1 - Milling brake pad locations
|Your Challenge:|| ||Milling brake pad locations with minimal setting and adjusting time.|
|Our Solution:|| ||Seco’s family of R335 disc milling cutters feature robust bodies for high tool life and incorporate a variety of features designed to optimize machining of cast iron. Positive rake angles reduce cutting forces and vibration to optimize accuracy and energy consumption, and the use of a constant rake angle over the radius maximizes chip evacuation. Your benefits include highly productive performance with extended tool life.|
