This high tensile alloy steel military tracked vehicle component posed several manufacturing challenges. It also required high end production engineering on different CNC machining disciplines. The differing and problematic cross section of the part required pre-machining stages and stress relieving operations. The wire EDM machining required excellent surface finish and parallelism. There were also radial features requiring 4 axis milling as well as multiple turning operations, grinding , honing and surface plating treatments.
