In this video from our workshop we are making 5 sets of tailgate brackets for Caterpillar 785 Mining dump trucks. The brackets will be mounted underneath the body of the dump truck and will help to open the tailgate. We are using high tensile steel plate and need to do plenty of machining, gas cutting, milling and drilling to complete the brackets for our customer. We start with boring the plates in our LZMT lathe before using our UniMig straight line gas cutter and to cut the plates in half. We then use our milling machine and 45 degree face cutter to mill the surface of the top plates. After the facing is complete we use an annular cutter to drill the bolt holes into the top plate. We then complete the brackets by use our radial arm drill for drilling the bolt holes into the base plates.
In this video we are using:
- LZMT CW6280D Lathe
- UniMig CG30 Straight Line gas cutting machine
- BM-63VE Milling machine
- Hafco ZX3050X16 Radial Arm Drill
