With the help of newly-acquired duplex milling technology, TCI Precision Metals offers shorter lead times for its custom machine-ready blanks. According to the company, the blanks are precision-milled to the customer’s net specifications and can be furnished as close as ±0.0005" dimensionally and as close as 0.0002" in flatness, squareness and parallelism. Each machine-ready blank is deburred, cleaned and vacuum-packaged, ready to go directly from receiving into CNC machining centers. The blanks are said to eliminate material prep, reduce setup time, part movement, scrap, and wear and tear on machine tool inserts and cutters used to square material in process.
