The splineway

In an unusual scenery reminiscent of the Star Wars droid factory, a small project for the implementation of a new splineway was carried out recently.

During the exploitation it turned out that the sunk key connection is destroyed, and the current groove in the shaft so permanently deformated that it can no longer fulfill its role.

Therefore, the designer decided to make a new, nominal groove on the opposite side of the shaft.
And this is a task for us and the KM3000 milling machine.

The final result. Like a new one.

The KM3000 milling machine can be seen in the film:
