Automation and Turning
Carolina Resource Corp. (“CRC”) continues their strategy of investing in new equipment and technology to support increasing requirements of its customers. In January of 2018 CRC placed a Doosan Lynx 220 LSYC 6 axis Turning Center on their production floor. In February the machine came on for full production with the addition of the automated LNS bar feeder. Parts from .25″ diameter up to 2.635″ diameter can be full automated. Larger parts, up to 8″ diameter, can be manually loaded.
The Lynx 220 LSYC with automated bar feeder, parts catcher and parts conveyor expanded our lights out machining capabilities at CRC. Raw material is feed into the lathe through the bar feeder, parts are turned and milled, swapped to the sub spindle for finish turning and milling for one and done parts. A parts catcher, in combination with a part ejector on the sub spindle, get finished parts out of the machine and onto a parts conveyor. In the first 11 months we have been able to produce over 35,000 parts.
Based out of Youngsville North Carolina and located closely to the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill areas, Carolina Resource Corp. provides Contract Manufacturing and Design to Manufacture services to the Aerospace, Automotive, Medical, Consumer, Recreational Sports, Work Holding, Food Service, Environmental, and Naval Industries.
