Amero Precision Opens U.S. Facility
The Mexican machine tool distributor’s new California facility will serve the U.S. West Coast.
Amero Precision, a CNC machine tool distributor based in Mexico, has opened a new location in Pemona, California, to serve the U.S. West Coast region. The facility has a 4,000-square-foot showroom featuring machine tools under power for live demonstrations.
From its California facility the company will primarily be offering machines from Priminer. Priminer, a German-Chinese manufacturer, specializes in vertical machining centers.
Amero Precision has sold, supported and serviced machines—including Enshu and You-Ji machines from Japan and Taiwan, respectively—for some 25 years out of its location in Mexico City. The new facility in California will serve California, Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Washington.
The force that holds the toolholder in the machining center's spindle can weaken over time. If you haven't checked drawbar force in a while, this may be the weak link in your process.
While aluminum molds are commonly used to create prototypes or to serve as stopgap bridge tooling, they are starting to receive greater attention for production work. This shop’s approach to creating aluminum molds in one day to three weeks is the same for each of these situations.
At IMTS 2014, you’ll see that a familiar U.S. machine tool brand is back.
