BETTER PRODUCTION MMS JULY 2018 116 GE AR PRODUCTION considering the Röhm chuck as a workable solution," com- pany President Cor y Ooyen says. "We were skeptical until they showed us just how fast and easy the chucks change over, how they would work with our automation and how precisely they hold parts." What he says really won him over, however, was the chuck's repeatability. "While our other workholding requires fine-tun- ing with ever y change-over, once this chuck's location is established we can maintain perfect repeatability from one collet or job change to the next, without any tweaking." According to Mr. Ooyen, the shop plans to add more auto- mated manufacturing cells. For the past two years, automotive customers have driven a surge in gear production for the shop, but it sees its other market seg- ments picking up as well. | Rohm Products of America 770-963-8440 A set of gear castings ready to be machined.
