Title

Six Surface Machining Station

Format

SOECS Senior Project Demonstration

Abstract/Artist Statement

The machines currently on the market for rotation of a part make machining only possible on up to five surfaces. This makes machining the sixth surface a time consuming process. For industry a station that rotates a part to expose all six of its faces is ideal for speeding up the machining process. The six face machining station is used for rotating a three inch (or smaller) cube to be machined on all six of its surfaces. The cube has four holes drilled into it prior to mounting in the machining station. The cube is held in place by four pins which are inserted into the holes. The linear motion is controlled by two opposing motors fastened to two lead screws. The rotational motion is controlled by two high torque motors. All four of the motors are controlled by a basic stamp program.
