2011 Doosan Lynx LM Machining a rectangular manifold out of 2011 aluminum round bar.
This video highlights the possibilities that a live tooling machine opens up. This particular project called for a rectangular part that was specified to be made from a material that was only readily available in round bar form. Unlike sawing and running on a mill, this part was able to be run unattended with minimal handling and less material waste. By performing most of the operations in one setup, the location of the most important features was highly repeatable and accurate.

This video showcases the ability of this machine to not only machine traditional lathe elements such as internal holes, reduced diameters, chamfers and threads, but to add milled features like flats and crossholes all in one setup.
