Senga Engineering Inc. multitask machining capabilities are the ultimate fusion of CNC turn-mill operations, with lathe, vertical, or horizontal machining center and material handling operations consolidated into one set-up. This process-intensive machining allows for high production manufacturing of complicated machine parts on one machine. Multitask machines assure high accuracy for even the most complex applications.
Senga's CNC Turning Department is comprised of 21 Okuma lathes capable of turning diameters between .25 inches and 12.0 inches. Our primary spindles are equipped with automatic bar feeders with bar capacity ranging from 3/8" to 3" diameter. Senga continuously invests in the latest technology in an effort to improve Quality, Cost, and Throughput. This translates into higher quality components at a fair and competitive price with improved turnaround times.
The major benefit of 11-axis machining is the ability to machine complex shapes in a single set-up. This gives greater machining productivity compared to performing the job in a series of set ups, as well as significantly reducing the time and cost of preparing multiple machine fixtures.
Another major benefit of using an 11-axis machine is the ability to create extremely complex parts from a solid bar stock or round bar that would otherwise have to been casted or forged. This shortens the part lead time when compared to casting the part’s general shape and then post machining it afterwards.
Another great benefit of multitask machining is the huge time saved drilling and milling of holes/slots. While this may seem trivial in comparison to the difficulty of machining a complex cavity or organic shape but drilling a series of holes with different compounding angles is extremely time consuming on a normal 3-axis set up. Since each angled hole must be set-up on a different fixture to accommodate all the hole angles. The 11-axis machine turret can be oriented along the correct axis for each hole to automatically. This allows drilling operations to be completed quickly and accurately.
