Indoshell Cast has put up a separate dedicated Machine shop unit for machining the components produced in the foundry. Machine shop not only focuses on value addition to the product but also helps in maintaining very low rejection PPM at the customer end. The products that we machine typically have less than 100 PPM rejection from our customer. More than 80% of our machine shop turnover comes from machining components for export.
Our machine shop is equipped with the latest CNC turning centres, vertical milling centres and horizontal milling centres with 4th axis machining facilities. We have the latest Makino machines from Japan with very high dimensional accuracy. We are also equipped with other ancillary machines like honing, lapping and cleaning machines. Our primary focus is machining complicated hydraulic castings. This requires a very low contamination levels in the complicated core areas. We have installed an ultra-sonic cleaning machine which can achieve cleanliness levels of less than 10 milligrams.
Machine shop is also equipped with state of the measuring devices like CMM and height master. Mitutoya CMM with advanced software facility, with our own Metrology lab is available. To measure complicated angles and curves we have a state of the art profile projector. Devices to measure surface finish (Ra value), flatness is also available. We also have edge cam for developing new machining jobs. This reduces the cycle time in developing new components and to get the component out First Time Right.
Since we understand our castings better, we design tools for machining to achieve the required dimensional accuracy.
