McNally Industries, Inc. of Grantsburg, WI, a worldclass leading manufacturer of defense related products, is one of the worlds leading consumers of cobalt-strengthened maraging steel. An increase in production requires them to reduce the machining time of certain operations producing parts for land combat weapon systems. The National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining NCDMM was requested to evaluate the identified operations for overall improvements in processes, tooling, and part quality. This will be accomplished by applying state-of-the-art tooling and programming technologies.
