Company Profile

Expect more from your CNC investment.

Get a higher Return on CNC.

Greater Return on MachinesIncrease machine speed, capacity and quality. “Our feed rates have already approached two hundred inches per minute and what comes out of the machine is a part cut in much less time, and that offers repeated high quality to the customer.”  -- Tim Rietsma, True Die, Inc.

Greater Return on Operations

Improve operating efficiencies shop-wide. “Our CNC technology purchases are based on where we want to be in ten years.

Greater Return on People

Uplift the productivity of your people. “The machinists that run our machines are professionals, they’re not button pushers, and with the SINUMERIK Operate interface, we can now rely on them to control and program certain parts right on their machines, while we programmers work on the more complex projects.” -- Tim Hayden, Major Tool & Machine, Inc.

Siemens Sinumerik

CNC Enables Four-Axis Turning without CAD/CAM System
The expanded contour machining cycle for Siemens’s Sinumerik controls now facilitates four-axis turning on lathes, enabling two turning tools, opposite one another, to machine a workpiece simultaneously for reduced machining time.

For this demonstration, the robot performed both workpiece pallet changeout and simulated polishing operations of machined parts.

Integrating Robot Programming into the CNC: One Example
This combination of robotics, CNC, workholding and machine tool technologies resulted in a streamlined way to integrate and program an automated machine-tending process.

Greater Return on Operations

Improve operating efficiencies shop-wide.

“Our CNC technology purchases are based on where we want to be in ten years. It’s about an operational platform that won’t deteriorate due to a change in market condition or a change in employment condition. It’s people and technology paired together, that become the backbone of the organization.”
