For 100% perfect tools Tool inspection made easy, quick and precise


Stober engineers realized they had a need for greater fl ex- ibility and increased production without sacrifi cing precision. They studied existing and alternative machining processes and identifi ed the need to reduce changeover times, espe- cially in the mid-size range. “Our previous system used two lathes equipped with standard tool- ing and traditional chucks,” said Gary Meyer, manufacturing engineer. “Exchanging the chucks and complet- ing the setup to ensure that our quality standards could be met resulted in heavy time constraints. We began look- ing for a system that could accommo- date collets as well as a standard three- jaw chuck, could changeover quickly between the two, and that would meet our tolerance and fi nish demands.” The parts, which are typically run in lots of about 100 pieces, range from machined castings that require a heavy-duty three-jaw chuck to 3.75" (95-mm) Durabar that is fed through the collet. For general applications, 4142 steel is used while 17-4 stainless is employed in multiple food and bever- age applications, as well as for parts in other industries.

processes, we immediately saw the need for more fl exibility in reducing our changeover times—especially in the mid-size range,” said Meyer. The system chosen by Stober was the centroteX system from Hain- buch America Corp. (Germantown, WI). A precision workholding system designed for machining small-to-large size components, centroteX accom- modates up to 31 different workhold- ing systems. Jaw clamping diameter extends to 256 mm, clamping head chucks up to 100 mm, and mandrel clamping from 8 to 115 mm. “We met the Stober engineering team at IMTS where I was demonstrat-
