Adam is an owner of a mechanical repair company in the OHIO, USA, they need some CNC machined parts to repair a wide range of equipment, we met on LinkedIn and we had quick first cooperation, he was very happy with the quality and service.
Adam sent us an urgent order for 6 CNC machining parts to repair their customer’s equipment at the upcoming Spring Festival in 2020, at this moment, it only 5days away to the Spring Festival holiday, which is a very important holiday in China, we couldn’t keep our staff here because they had already booked their train tickets to go hometown, and the tickets are very difficult to get, and many of our staff had already gone home early, BUT the damage caused by Equipment stoppage due to lack of spare parts is Incalculable.
And that, The part involves a deep hole drilling process, which needs to be outsourced, and by now, most of the small factories were closed and people have gone home for the Spring Festival holidays, Our challenge is to get the part to Adam before the Chinese New Year.
4 days to complete 6 parts, involving deep hole drilling, CNC turning, and CNC milling.
On the morning of the first day, to speed things up, our sales manager Peter drove the truck to pick up the materials, there were no more people on the road, Many factories were closed.
In the afternoon of the first day, start deep hole drilling.
Unfortunately, the first hole was drilled incorrectly, and the hole was off-centered by 5mm, which caused the material to be scrapped.
Our guy talked together to improved the upper clamp process, and we solved the problem soon.
On the evening of the first day, the deep hole drilling was completed, the drilled material was taken back to our factory and the CNC turning working is started, a long process because we had to cut out a lot of unnecessary material, which took us 48 hours in total.
On the evening of the third day, Start to CNC milling process.
Fourth day: Inspection and ship parts
