Tier 1 Auto Supplier Increases Productivity by Partnering with LMC



"A case study is now available from LMC Workholding featuring a local Tier 1 automotive customer that was able to save $105,000 with increased production, 700 hours of machine time a year with $150/hour burden rate and a reduced cycle time of 29% with LMC," said a company spokesperson.

The automotive supplier was trying to increase production of its GM axle tubes and turned to LMC and the Atling design engineers to develop a custom steady rest solution that allowed its team to drill their parts without orienting the part multiple times. The customer averages 212,000 parts per year and reduced its cycle time by about 12 seconds per part.

LMC makes all types of workholding with an emphasis currently on Rotational Workholding and Aluminum Wheel Manufacturing Systems. LMC's products include standard and special chucks and cylinders up to 7 m in diameter, manual and hydraulic steady rest systems and integration, face drivers, centers and many other types of standard and super precision chucks, cylinders and fixtures.
