To keep up with demand, Advance CNC Machining has added another high-speed 4-axis horizontal CNC machining center.
The new machine, a Makino A51nx, was put on the shop floor in the fourth quarter of 2011 because of growing customer requirements. Since it was installed, this workhorse has averaged nearly 100 hours of production per week.
Some highlights of the new A51nx include tool changes in .9 seconds, 14,0000 RPM spindle speeds, feed rates just under 2,000 inches per minute and a 250 square inch work envelope.
All of these highlights add up to faster cycle times. That means more parts machined in less time which saves customers money.
If you have parts that you think could benefit from high speed machining, please contact us at (614) 539-3000 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
