MAZAK Turning Mills @ work

Part description: Wheel hub
Customer: KU Engineering Dept.
Material: 5 inch dia. 7075 Alum.

This part was designed by the University of Kansas’ engineering team for their annual race car build.

There were 4 units, one for each wheel, with minor differences in each. The video shows the rear hub which incorporates a CV suspension system within the clover leaf shaped recess.

Run time, start to finish on this part was 8min., while holding tolerances at +/- .001”.

Programming was done using Mazak’s Mazatrol Fusion software. There was no EIA program created by todays’ high dollar CAD and drafting systems.
