Magna Machine’s German-built Union PCR 160 horizontal boring mill

Multitasking's "Big" Advantage
As demonstrated at this Cincinnati-area shop, machines that both mill and turn shine brightest when workpieces are massive.

More Than Big Machines
This shop specializes in very large components such as rotor hubs and support bases for wind turbines. Its lineup of large horizontal boring mills can handle parts weighing 40,000 pounds and 12 feet on a side. However, the shop’s success also lies in other manufacturing resources and strategies. These include material handling equipment, customized tooling, special fixtures and wireless, portable measuring systems.

A Machine Designed With Contract Shops In Mind
This five-axis, moving-column machine features a table configuration allows C-axis rotation of small- to medium-sized parts as well as fixturing of very long workpieces.

For general drilling jobs (low volume with a few holes), the shop usually specifies off-the-shelf jobber drills.

The Hole Business
It's generally acknowledged that making holes is by far the most common metalworking operation. So how does a shop find a way to carve a niche for itself applying such a common process as hole making? This Ohio job shop has managed.
