Hyundai Wia Dealer Celebrates Over 1,000 Machine Sales in Texas, Oklahoma
Hillary Machinery LLC has been an exclusive distributor in the region since 2003.
Hillary Machinery LLC, a distributor for Hyundai Wia based in Plano, Texas, is celebrating the installation of more than 1,000 Hyundai Wia machines in Texas and Oklahoma. Since opening its North American subsidiary in 1989, Hyundai Wia has installed over 10,000 machines in the Americas. Hillary Machinery has been responsible for the Texas and Oklahoma regions since becoming the OEM’s exclusive dealer there in 2003.
The latest customer in the region, according to Hillary Machinery, was Lockheed Martin, which recently added its first Hyundai Wia turning center after purchasing five F-series machining centers for various facilities in the Americas.
Old-world craftsmanship combines with precision machining on a vertical machining center and Swiss-type lathe to produce some of the only U.S.-made mechanical wristwatch movements.
Though it won’t replace high speed machining, Boeing sees “low speed machining” as a viable supplement to higher-rpm machines. Using new tools and techniques, a shop’s lower-rpm machining centers can realize much more of their potential productivity in milling aluminum aircraft parts.
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.
