The Goal

The customer needed a vertical boring mill with twin rams and twin tool changers that would accept Capto 8 tooling.  KRC removed the existing single ram and turret assemblies on a used machine and engineered a solution to design a new saddle and ram assemblies to meet customers desired machine configuration.  This solution allowed the customer to avoid buying a new machine and cut with both rams at the same time to reduce part cycle time.
