Centerline Machining Method
We finish-machine our turrets as a complete unit – already assembled with the coupling, gearbox, and drive system. Keying off the turret’s centerline, we machine all critical features of each station using single-axis moves, and then index the turret to machine the next station. This ensures the absolute concentricity of each station with the turret’s true center. Compared to machining the turret before assembly, this reduces positioning variation from tool to tool by more than 90%. This results in easier job set up, higher accuracy, and better repeatability.
