Holey Steel


The part is made from rectangular steel bar stock with multiple holes coming in from four different directions.  The particular problem we faced was drilling a precision hole all the way through the length of the part fast enough to keep up with all the other machining operations.

The Jost Solution was inventive if not divinely inspired.  We broke up the operations to start on one end and progressively use different tools around a rotary index table to machine a completed part every few seconds.  That’s how you make holey steel...fast!
