Ross Custom Switches Case Study

Model Train Switches: Batch Milling of Engineering Grade Delrin Using Vacuum Workholding

“In 1900 a marketing genius named Joshua Lionel Cowen talked a store owner into carrying one of his odd gadgets — a toy train that looked like a brick on wheels that ran around an oval track by the power of battery. The set sold well and by 1907 Lionel trains had become more realistic and had increased competition from brands like Voltamp who introduced a 2” train that ran on AC.”

“Datron’s workholding almost eliminates set-up time and lets us run batches of parts unattended so we can do other things.”
