TCI Precision Metals announce the installation of its second large format horizontal boring mill and a vertical turning center (VTL), in response to increased customer demand for medium to large machined parts.
The Horizontal Machining Center is the heavy duty, high precision Hyundai-Kia KBN135, which features a table size of 79” x 71”, with travels of 118” in X, 79” in Y, 63” in Z, and 28” in W and has a load rating of 22,000 lb; the machine can efficiently handle some of the biggest and heaviest parts requiring precision machining.
The KBN135 is joined in the same Large Part Manufacturing Cell with a new Honor Seiki VTL, with a 2m (79”) turning diameter and a 49” turning height. The maximum work piece weight is 17,600 lb.
“We respond to our customers’ needs by adding comprehensive machining solutions to meet demand," says John Belzer, president of TCI Precision Metals. "However, we are very thoughtful in our approach to insure efficiency, quality and expertise. In the case of this most recent investment, we created a special large part manufacturing cell capable of producing high-quality, complex parts, efficiently. "
