As seen in MMS

Profiler Features Redesigned, High-Speed Spindle
SNK's HGM-2500 high-rail-gantry profiler features a redesigned 20,000-rpm, high-horsepower spindle providing stable, accurate five-axis machining of large-sized components, the company says.

Gaining Capabilities with a Five-Face Machining Center
By using the RB-4VM five-face bridge-type machining center from SNK America Inc., Marvel Manufacturing Co. Inc. was able to produce complex parts for band saws with increased precision.

SNK America Tech Center Grand Opening and Open House Promote Cradle-to-Grave Support
At the grand opening of SNK America's new Tech Center, the company emphasized its commitment to supporting its machines for the duration of their lifetime.

Why a Tech Center?
There was a time when a machine tool supplier could serve a local market sufficiently by having machines for sale in that region and having technicians available to service them. That much isn’t enough anymore, says SNK America.

Taking Titanium Seriously
Does titanium justify a machine that is engineered for this metal?

Five-Axis Profiler for Hard Metal Cutting Applications
SNK America’s HPS-120A five-axis profiler is designed for complex, simultaneous five-axis machining and contouring of titanium, stainless steel and other difficult-to-cut materials.

SNK Relocates Headquarters
Machine tool builder SNK America has relocated its U.S. headquarters in Mt.

Horizontal Boring and Milling Machine Provides Accurate Cutting
A combination of a robust design, thermal compensation and scales on axes in SNK’s Nissin HBM BHP130-3.5 series horizontal boring and milling machine is designed to produce high cutting accuracy.

Vertical Column Five-Axis Profiler
The FSP-80V vertical spindle five-axis profiler machines hard metals, including titanium, Inconel, stainless steel and more.

Machine Medium To Large Parts With Full 50-hp Cuts
The Niigata HN80D HMC machines medium to large parts in a wide range of materials with traverse rates of 1,181 ipm and feed rates of 592 ipm on the box ways. Full 50-hp cuts are achieved through an advanced two-range geared headstock. With only three rotating components, maximum power is transmitted to the cutting

Five-Axis, Bridge-Type Machining Center

No Need For Speed
In this shop, high speed machining makes sense at 4,000 rpm. While the disciplines the shop put in place made a new 15,000-rpm profiler dramatically more productive, high speed machining would have remained valuable even if the new machine never came. Acoording to a co-owner of this shop, high speed machining has no need for speed.

Big Inspection With Little Difficulty
A portable laser tracker let this shop increase not only its machining range, but also the range of its services to customers.

Move The Program Instead Of The Part
A complex five-axis part with hard-to-reach datums is machined in two setups instead of eight, thanks to a process that rewrites the tool paths to match the part's position.

Winning The Door Prize
The accuracy of this shop's five-axis gantry-type profiler helped it land the job of machining the engine-bay doors for the F/A-22.
