SIP Jig Bore

Boeing Tooling Division – Wichita, KS.

This is an overview of the SIP Precision Jig Bore Machine at Boeing’s Tooling Facility in Wichita, KS. The following pictures show modification of the Spindle in preparation for a Z-axis scale.

In this photo, you see a test fitting of the Z-axis scale by plant personnel. This was a tedious procedure and many trials were required to achieve proper fit and clearance.

This is a view of some of the parts it took to allow the reader head to travel the Z-axis without interference.

In the words of Frank Zappa, “One More Time!” Another check of the Z-axis scale for clearance and alignment. When the covers in place, the unit is no longer visible.
