Clearing Weldment Machining Challenges
Rather than replacing an old horizontal boring mill with a similar model, this manufacturer of stone-cutting equipment now uses a dual-pallet HMC with a quill spindle to provide W-axis extension to reach past weldment obstructions and more effectively machine critical weldment features.

SNK America CMV-100

Five-Axis Machine for Contouring Applications
SNK America says its CMV-100 is a five-axis machine with a column-feed design and construction that eliminates table overhang, promoting prolonged machining accuracy for contoured 3D work for the die/mold and aerospace industries.

How to Increase Machining Efficiency through Machine Monitoring
A manufacturer that is distinctive for its attention to in-cycle machining productivity describes its efforts to obtain efficiency improvements outside of the machining cycle. The shop’s primary tool is a simple, daily, graphical recap that illustrates when each machine tool was and was not making parts.

SNK America Innovates, Educates
Guests witnessed the world premiere of two machining centers, saw live demonstrations on a variety of workpieces and materials, and attended educational sessions by industry leaders.

SNK America FSP-80V

Five-Axis VMC Performs Complex Contouring
The FSP-80V vertical machining center from SNK America is intended as a cost-effective alternative for applications requiring complex, simultaneous five-axis contouring of difficult-to-cut materials.

The RB-4VM five-sided vertical machining center

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?

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.

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

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.
