Pivot bearings

Aluminium


Aluminium components reduce weight by up to 50%. Especially when it comes to the chassis/suspension components, unsprung masses are significantly lowered as a result. This has a positive influence on the driving comfort and the handling dynamics. Forged, high-strength and high-toughness components that permit significant deformation for safety reasons are particularly difficult to machine. They require an appropriate tool concept with good chip control

Upper king pin and support drilling, milling and back face deburring

Our solution:
Walter PCD combination tool

  • Indexable solid carbide drill inserts with four cutting edges
  • Chamfering, back face deburring and spot-facing
  • With brazed PCD cutting edges
  • Milling on both sides with one pass

Benefits for you:
High geometrical accuracy thanks to laser-generated cutting edges. Low chip width due to graduated PCD segments.
