“We have decreased our lead times tremendously because of the technology of 5-Axis machining” said Paul McBride, Operations Manager. “Orders that were taking three weeks are now taking two weeks or less, thanks to this process.”
In 2016 we purchased our fifth, 5-Axis live tooling lathe, a DMG Mori NLX 3000 and our second palletized system mill the Okuma MB-5000 Horizontal Machining Center with a 6 Pallet Station. Both of these machines increase our capabilities while decreasing our part lead times.
We manufacture replacement parts for all corrugated machines including Evol, Simon, LMC, Bobst, Tecasa and many others. If the part needed is not in inventory, our engineering department can work with the customer to design the specific part that is needed. All of our parts are made right here in the United States
