The TS1000 Blueprint System

ts1000-Blueprint-System

The TS-1000 has been designed with the following objectives in mind. Machine any block, whether V-8, V-6, inline, 90 degree or 60 degree on the same setup with no extra fixtures or attachments necessary and…

  1. Have the ability but not the necessity of putting the cylinders at perfect center to center positions from whatever datum plane the operator desires whether from the dowel pin, main thrust surface, bell housing surface, etc…
  2. Alternatively have the ability to compensate for the wear in used blocks when centering and boring since most blocks will not “clean up” if attempting to correct the bore centers.
  3. Use the same program for all blocks as opposed to a different program for Chevys, Fords, Isuzu, etc…
  4. Use and operator interface to lead the customer through the block boring and surfacing process without any knowledge of running a CNC control.
  5. Have the fastest floor to floor time possible on any CNC boring mill
  6. Have the most versatile system of any CNC boring mill on the market
  7. Use the probe to automatically display the size of the bores so no measuring of the cylinders by the operator is necessary.
  8. Have a CNC boring mill capable of all the above and still capable of automatically machining parts with g-code programs generated by any cad/cam system an operator might have.
  9. Have the ability to engrave parts with no special programming tools.
Block Setup
Probe Information

We have accomplished these goals and the price of the system complete is about 30% less than any competitor and yet is simpler and more versatile. The reason for the above design is our normal customer has the following needs:

  1. He works on anything that comes through the door.
  2. He needs to be able to have this CNC boring mill running with the least operator intervention possible so he can bore and surface (and cut lifter bores, notch pan rails for stroker cranks, etc…) while he is in the next room doing paperwork or helping the next customer.
  3. He does not have time to be changing out the fixture for different jobs. He needs the machine to be cutting metal.
  4. He needs to take his best operator (in many cases himself) and make him more efficient and more precise.
  5. He needs to greatly increase his cash-flow.
  6. He wants a show-piece CNC boring mill to impress his customers to bring in more work.
Bore Cylinders
Surface Block

We have built a CNC boring mill for this customer. There are those who work on the same engine over and over or at least only about four different engines. For this we have a little different setup we can use that is dedicated to these engines. More of our customers work on any and everything and the blocks are usually well-worn. With the TS1000 is doesn’t matter what your preference or workload is, it’s easy and affordable for YOU. This truly is the best value CNC boring mill on the market today.
