The workpiece to be machined is clamped in the usual way in the fixture for the first machining phase. The CCL element for axial machining (diameter “D”) must be placed so that the bolts are aligned relative to the centre line of the workpiece during the advance motion. Now, the final diameter machining of the workpiece is performed as with conventional machining processes.
After having machined the diameter “D” in the appropriate position, the cylinder is pressurized and extended up to the limit stop
Ød = diameter unmachined
ØD = diameter machined
