CNC Milling of an Aluminum Alloy Label Applicator Arm for the Labeling Industry

A client in the printing/labeling industry was in need of a precision aluminum part. Actually a label applicator arm for a packaging machine. They turned to APM to take advantage of our expert machining services. This challenging project required multiple machining set ups and processes.

Partnering with the client on development and product design, fabrication of this aluminum part involved engineering and programming the machining processes using state of the art CAM software that maximized quality and efficiency. Utilizing an CNC OKK VM5-III vertical machining center, 6061-T6 aluminum was milled to final dimensions of 18" – 22" in length, 6" high, and 1½" wide. The aluminum arm also underwent an anodizing process to increase corrosion and wear resistance.

To confirm that all specifications were met, quality measures such as functionality testing and dimensional inspections were performed. These quality capabilities verified that the required ±.0005" tolerances were met.

Additional information on this packaging machine label applicator arm project is outlined in the table below. If you have additional inquiries, please feel free to contact us today.
