OX is doing a How it's Made series that you can follow at https://www.facebook.com/OXUSA
. Give us your input of what you think. Below is an example of the beginning of the series.
Pictured below is the main part of the OX locker (the carrier). This is how we receive it from the forging company in nothern Ohio. It is loaded into a 6 axis cnc lathe with live tooling which is able to do the milling operations as well as turning in one process. This improves accuracy since no one has to touch the part.
The carrier is made of US forged alloy steel. We have it forged for the added strength, and the alloy we use is specifically chosen for it's strength and heat treat carictaristics.
OX lockers are the only lockers made of forged steel!!!
After 45 minutes on the machine here in Florida, the carrier has taken shape. It's now ready to go to Tampa to the heat treat facility.
