A subcontracting company to the automotive and the fittings industry produces a range of components such as flanges, sprockets and drive shafts and was looking for a solution to reduce cycle time for drilling, deburring, and chamfering a sprocket wheel. 

Previously, the customer used a full carbide drill for the hole and a front and back deburring tool for removal of the burrs. The cycle time for all 12 bores amounted to 320 seconds. Since the deburring tool failed to produce a consistent chamfer, the sprockets had to be reworked manually outside of the machine.
