TANK DRIVE SHAFTS

Timeframe

6 weeks

The Brief:

This project involved work on 100mm diameter 2 metre long Torsion bars made of hardened alloy steel for use within a tank drive.

Our engineers used the Alesa-Monti’s 1.8 rectangular table to Tab slot the shafts with great ease.

The Alesa-Monti machine can machine large components with the highest accuracy, and has a number of fantastic features including a spindle made of nitride steel running on steep-angular ball bearings, providing high accuracy at elevated speed. The transistor- controlled drivers and digital brushless motors for the axes offer speed variation during both manual and CNC-controlled motion.

The new machine is being run continuously to produce highly accurate jobs of outstanding quality.
