Methods Machine Tools Opens Climate-Controlled Precision Test Cut Facility
The new Precision Center will enable manufacturers to arrive at accurate and efficient machining solutions for complex components, saving them trial and error in their operations.
Methods Machine Tools’ new Precision Center in Massachusetts is said to be the first of its kind in North America for precision machining. The test cut center will enable Methods’ customers to arrive at accurate and efficient machining solutions for complex components, saving them trial and error in their operations.
Designed and built by Methods, the center offers a climate-controlled environment that monitors and maintains temperature, air pressure and humidity. To maintain environmental stability, the Precision Center features a secured airlock entrance and exit. The building also has meter-deep isolation pads with vertical and horizontal steel reinforcements for machining stability.
“North American manufacturers can send parts, tooling and material to our Precision Center without having to go outside the country. Intricate, challenging, tight-tolerance and confidential test parts can be made right here in the U.S.,” says Jerry Rex, president and CEO.
