TCI Precision Metals Adds Latest Duplex Milling Technology
TCI Machine-Ready Blanks are milled in width and length using the THV430’s specially designed twin spindle in one setup instead of two, the company says, reducing set up time and increasing efficiency. One or more Machine-Ready Blanks can be produced together, up to the machine’s overall dimensional capacity of 16.93-inch width x 16.93-inch length x 5.91-inch height. The value is passed to TCI customers through shorter lead-times and competitive pricing.
“At TCI we continuously refine our equipment and processes to maximize quality and efficiency,” said Ben Belzer, president of TCI Precision Metals, in a press release. “As a result, we are able to provide customers with cost effective, high value, Machine-Ready Blanks that can reduce a shop’s overall cost by as much as 25 percent on a given production job.”
Custom Machine-Ready Blanks are precision milled to the customer’s net specifications.
