Exclamation how we make the ez parts

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZW-654pMG_Y


Hi guys. It may have nothing to do with the ez-tools but I think is good to forward and take a look at the latest setups that made your tools.

starting with the 3-Dumores. prototrak cnc and a Sigma drill press
with commander multi spindle setup.

the dumores

the ez bridge ( b-300 ) demands perfect parts.
anything less and you have a problem on the 51" hinged track.
the idea may look simple but requires very accurate parts to perform as dreamed....
with the 3-Domore's setup we will eliminate any potential problem.
the 3 drills are going to work as one and with 3 way drilling and a total of 20 holes at once.
The one in the video is capable of 14 holes at once.
all controlled by drilling jigs made on the prototrack CNC.

the prototrak
easiest cnc to use and program.
using the 2-axis mode you can program a simple part in 2 minutes.
the 3 axis takes 5-10 minutes.
once the program is created is stored to the harddrive and we can recall
1000's of programs to make parts in one minute.
I thought that the multi spindle drilling systems was the way to go but you run out of room very fast.

the Sigma/commander
drill press.I cant go into details but the positioning jig was made with ez extrusions.
we're looking at the first hybrid in multi sindle systems.
one simple idea using ez-extrusions and we listed over 50 adjustable and fixed multi spindle heads
in ebay for sale.

I will post more setups next week.
The tigerstop and the flex-arm tapping arm are keepers.
the idea is to use less machines with ultimate versatility and save on rent
while been able to offer cnc components at current prices.


enjoy the ez-setups .

I thought I noticed a Rohm chuck in the Bridgeport?

I also wondered, if when you said these were the easiest to program, if you could put a template in part of one, and run a tracer/probe around it to get the measurements of where to drill and such? Or are you going to have to learn a new skill (considering how you have issues with computers and all)?

Randal, the rohm chuck is on the Dumore.
To program a cnc is very easy.
You simply put the numbers how and where you want the machine to move.
I can program a part with 5-6 holes in 2 -3 minutes. childs play.
The computers are easy if you have the time to play and learn.
But if the tool comes with a computer you make the time.
I have no problems with computers. I hate them.

We have a probe to duplicate any part but our parts are very ez to program. we run Mach-3 in a small cnc. very ez.
The trick is the positioning of the parts to increase production.
ezlearning evey day.

The commander head takes 12 spindles and we can reposition the spindles within 0.001 in less than 5 minutes. thanks to ez extrusions.

the prototrak cnc with a teach mode. ( only on the 2-axix mode)
you make one part manually and save all the setups with the help of the DRO.
The machine knows wha to do the next time but you can only teach the machine for one program at a time.
I see no need for it.

Do you like their chucks? (no experience here, just old Jacobs chucks)

Hating computers IS the problem. They are simply a tool. If you hate a tool, you avoid using it enough to become proficient (look at your typing). A Typo on one of those machines could cost you.

Maybe we should make a pc case out of EZ rail, and then you wouldn't hate them so much, LOL.

Nice video, but I would have rather seen it AFTER you had it producing!

I thought you bought some Hurcos or Milltronics or some sort of VMC?
