CNC Milling of Aluminum Main Module for the Military Industry

Kilgore Manufacturing Company, Inc. was contracted by a client in Michigan to complete a manifold within a high pressure air system application. With our long-established expertise in CNC milling, we set out straight to work.

We were given pieces of 6061-T6 aluminum with starting dimensions of 5.25" long, 4" wide, and 9.50" high. Following a customer-supplied blueprint and employing our own 3D surface model, we used a Haas VF-4SS equipped with a 1000 psi thru spindle coolant and a TR160 Trunnion that provided 5-axis simultaneous motion and/or positioning, we constructed a series of 500 and counting manifolds with finished dimensions of 4.98" long, 3.98" wide, and 9.23" high, with tolerances as close as +/- .001".

We provided a material finish to each manifold by way of clear anodizing. The end products came out to weigh an estimated 3.255 lbs. each. For more information on Kilgore and our CNC milling services, contact us today or continue to browse our website.
