Hydraulic Flange Units

We have recently completed these hydraulic flange units, manufactured from mild steel the largest unit started out just short of 72KG, a hefty chunk of material.

Both these items were machined on one of our 3 axis machining centres without any 4th axis, during machining we used a series of tools including roughing cutters, finishing cutters, chamfer mills, spot drills, carbide drills and 1/4 BSP thread formers, we opted for thread formers over thread cutting to produce a longer lasting thread, threads created by forming are also stronger than cut threads.
