Design and Manufacturing of CAT 50 Taper Conversion Cartridge for Boring Bar Machine


  Working with a machine shop client, Locher, Inc. provided a cartridge conversion     service to modify an existing boring bar machine. Locher's work on this cartridge       conversion involved two separate steps: the work on the boring bar, and the               design of a CAT 50 taper cartridge for insertion. Our client's required end result         was a modified #50 gauge boring bar complete with a hydraulic drawbar clamping   system, Belleville washers, and the CAT 50 taper.

  Working within a tolerance of ±.0001", we carried out the required conversion             work, completing the modification with a drawbar featuring a maximum clamping       force of 8000 lbs., and an identical ground finish for the entire piece. The final             product was completed and delivered to our customer, working within the specified   time frame of 4 to 6 weeks. For more information on this and other Locher, Inc.           services, please contact us today.
