Work piece example include:
Coaxial cable; connectors
A manufacturer of coaxial wire cable components was required to machine away a copper/lead/tin solder material from the ends of the components.
- Complicating the process was the necessity to also trim off an inner stainless steel braid shim, leaving exposed a Teflon® coated inner conducting wire, without damage to the wire.
- The manufacturer had a family of parts requiring the same operation to be performed on a variety of diameters ranging from .070″ to .152″.
Genesee designed two standard positive rake M-00 style hollow mills with standard brazed carbide blades.
- Blade geometry can be maintained by the customer through dozens of regrinds using the simple Genesee regrinding fixture.
