CNC Machining

Mori Seiki NL2500SY/700

Mori Seiki’s NL2500SY/700 is our third turning center. This machine is equipped with a 10″ main chuck with 3″ through the spindle bar capacity. We also added the LNS S3 servo bar loader to match. With a 12 position turret (with all positions being “live” for milling tools), a C-axis as well as a Y-axis for off center work, and a 6″ secondary spindle which can pick off parts, we can machine lathe/mill style parts complete. We also added Chip Blaster’s JV10 unit for high pressure through the tool coolant (up to 1000psi).

Fanuc Robodrill Mates

Two Fanuc Robodrill Mates from Methods. These machines are designed (in our mind) for machining aluminum and plastic parts fast. With a 10,000 RPM spindle and an X,Y,Z travel of 16″ x 13″ x 13″, these can fit the majority of our machining needs. They are little giants and a welcome addition to our machine tool line up.

Mori Seiki NH 4000 DCG Horizontal Mill

Mori Seiki’s NH 4000 DCG Horizontal Machining Center is our flagship machine. 400mm twin pallets with an X,Y,Z travel of 22″ x 22″ x 26″ and can swing a 24″. 14,000 RPM spindle, high speed machining option for full 3D contours. 1000psi through the tool coolant JV10 unit from Chip Blaster. Big plus full contact BT40 spindle. Full 4th axis, 120 tools, Renishaw probe, and a Blum laser to tool calibration and breakage detection. This is essential for running 24/7 type jobs. We have also seen up to a 400% reduction in cycle time from our first CNC machining center.

Mori Seiki SL 204 Lathe

The SL-204 lathe is our first Mori Seiki machine. Nothing fancy about this one. 8″ chuck, 2-1/2 through the spindle, parts catcher, chip conveyor, 12 position turret and tailstock. A great start in our decision to align ourselves with a great machine tool company.

Mazak QT 250 Turning Center

Mazak’s QT 250 turning center played a big role in the start of this business. As our very first CNC machine, this was the start of it all. 8″ chuck, 2″ through the spindle, 12 position turret, LNS Servo 2 bar feed. This machine is still working the same as the day I installed it.

Mori Seiki NV 5000 Vertical Mill

The NV5000B/40 was a big leap from our very first vertical machine. Equipped with a 12,000 RPM spindle, 1000psi coolant through the tool, 1 sec. tool change and 3 sec. chip to chip, a data server for high speed machining, 30hp., 30 tools, and 40″ x 20″ x 20″ X,Y,Z travel.

Mori Seiki Duracenter 5

The Duracenter 5 is our second vertical machining center from Mori Seiki and a sister machine to the NV5000 above. Equipped with a 12,000 RPM BT40 spindle, 20hp, 20 tool, 30″ x 20″ x 20″ X,Y,Z travel, a data server for high speed machining, and a JV10 unit from Chip Blaster. A great all around machine for all materials.

Okuma S-V4020

Okuma’s entry level S-V4020 is our first CNC vertical machining center, still on our floor machining parts every day. 8,000RPM CAT 40 spindle, 20 tool, and 40″ x 20″ x 26″ X,Y,Z travel. We can also remove the side doors for process long parts. Recently this machine played a pivotal role in the production of a large fabricated weldment. A work horse from day one and a great machine to start with.
