Rottler’s EM45 CNC Machine
The EM45 features universal CNC technology designed for all engine shops and allows you to probe, surface and bore on the same machine.
CNC Update: Features and Automation
Precision is key when it comes to automotive parts; the complex designs of connecting rods, pistons and rings, blocks, cylinder heads, and other parts require super tight tolerances that are getting more and more difficult to be met by hand or with other machining processes outside of CNC.
Comec ACF200 CNC Boring Mill
Comec’s ACF200 CNC cylinder boring/resurfacing machine introduces highly innovative solutions, making this machine faster and more practical to use.
Industry Veterans Form MEC CNC Machines
Anthony and Elle Usher, veterans of the engine machining industry, have formed MEC CNC Machines based in California. “Our goal is to bring precision engine machining equipment to a broad range of customers servicing internal combustion engines,” says Anthony Usher. “Our clients rely on versatile equipment for manufacturing, modifying and rebuilding engines and related components.
Hoops for High Horsepower
The hoop offers better sealing against exhaust gases because rather than the pressure trying to escape from a flat-on-flat surface, the hoop creates a lock between the head and the block to better seal the engine.
CNC Machines Keep the $pindle Moving
CNC block machining centers and CNC cylinder hones are some of the most popular machines today. These machines can increase productivity in the shop significantly.
Cylinder Head Porting; Turning Air Into Power
In general, the most critical areas when porting a cylinder head are those which pass the most air at the highest speed and for the longest duration.
When You Can’t Buy It, Building It Expands Your Shop Capabilities.
We all get crazy ideas from time to time. Sometimes we see something and that sparks an idea. Other times we’ll have a need and, “necessity being the mother of invention,” we come up with an idea of how to build that special part or tool that would fix the problem. The majority of the
Sourcing CNC Solutions – Making the decision for CNC may be scary, profitable
CNC machining equipment can be a double-edged sword to many engine builders that promises flexibility and profitability, yet often requires a significant upfront investment. As with any piece of equipment, there’s no “one size fits all” solution, and three top engine builders explain how they overcame the fear of financing and failure to find success
Making the Plunge into CNC
Computer Numeric Controlled (CNC) machines are changing the way many machine shops build engines. CNC provides a level of automation, sophistication and accuracy that manually operated machines can’t match. CNC also has the potential to dramatically increase productivity and profitability.
Future of Engine Building: The Road Ahead for Machining
The future always seemed so far away for some reason. You had cartoons featuring flying cars and movies about aliens and galaxies far, far away.
