Chip Removal

Company manufactures custom Aluminum Magnesium extrusions and castings. In their milling operation they were experiencing 15 parts out of 50 that were out of tolerance because the locator pins were not clean. A misaligned part caused it to be machined improperly and cause customer rejects. Prior to loading the extrusion into the mill, the locator pins were blown clear with a Model 2006 6" (152mm) Standard Air Knife installed to the side of the die and activitated by a solenoid controlled by the machine program. Defective parts were eliminated and saved the account with their customer.
