Advance CNC Machining Open House 2013

Open House at our Columbus Machine Shop Headquarters


[portfolio_slideshow id=1921]

On September 12th, over 125 of our customers and network suppliers attended Advance CNC Machining’s first open house. Our guests had an opportunity to tour the entire facility, meet our expert staff and experience the major machining technology improvements we have been making.

Demonstrations included custom laser marking on our Beamer Laser Marking System, live part inspection on our brand new FaroArm portable CMM system, Q&A with our machinists and machining demonstrations on our 21 cutting edge CNC machines.

No one left empty handed and several lucky guests won big prizes like an iPad and an HDTV. We had some raving fans:


[blockquote author=”” link=”” link_title=”” target=””] Thank you for including me in your open house. Everything was first class, from the greeting at the door, thru the shop demos, and the catered buffet. Your staff did everything first class! [/blockquote]


We all had a great time. If you missed our open house this year, feel free to contact us to schedule your own personal tour of our facility or keep in touch to be invited to the next one!




Our New FaroArm Edge Portable CMM

Advance CNC Machining’s New FaroArm Edge Portable CMM

The FARO Edge is the latest generation of the FaroArm product line and we have it here at Advance CNC Machining. As the most advanced portable measurement arm FARO has ever produced, the Edge eclipses competitive models in every category. There is no comparable alternative product for the shop floor.

The FARO Edge portable CMM will enable us to perform time and cost saving functions such as shop floor first article inspections and even in-process inspections, reverse engineering, machine calibration and alignment.

Laser part inspection

Why the FARO Edge is such a great addition to our shop floor:

  • 1.8 to 3.7m (6 ft. to 12 ft.) spherical working volume
  • Accuracy from 0.024mm (0.0009 in.) to 0.064mm (0.0025in.)
  • Intuitive on-board measurement system: Built-in touchscreen computer; QuickTools; Laptop-free basic measurements
  • Smart Sensor Technology: Sensors warn against factors that compromise performance
  • Internal Counterbalance: Provides comfortable, stress-free usage
  • Temperature Sensors: Allow the Arm to react to thermal variations for maximum portability and accuracy
