Electronic boxes have been used in all possible applications from consumables to aerospace.
But with the rise of the electric car the situation has changed a lot and the number of parts and their complexity are also changing. The automotive industry now requires lighter and more complex shapes.
At Makino we have a machine that beats the rest of the portfolio for these components, the DA300. The DA300’s speed, acceleration and dynamics make it the best choice for machining electronic boxes.
Our sample part
We have designed our electronic box with:
Features on all sides
For the side holes we positioned with the 5-axis function, drilled the holes and then used a SNAP chamfering tool from Heule.
SNAP does front and back chamfering in just one tool. The advantage of using SNAP is that it allows us to access the back chamfer of side holes, which would otherwise have to be machined later in a manual process. SNAP has been specifically designed for automatic operations involving large production lots.
