"TCI Goes BIG"
While my monthly topics usually are intended to cover broader issues than those under our own roof, this month I can't resist shameless self-promotion. Over the past several years, the Engineered Products side of our business has evolved with our customers' requirements and needs. While evolving has always been the norm here, the early 2000s brought a seismic (after all, this IS California) shift toward larger work.
At the risk of suggesting that our latest addition completes our large part machining cell, our new Hyundai-Kia Horizontal Boring Mill would seem to fit the bill. It complements 3 very large gantry-type vertical machining centers and 3 somewhat smaller horizontal machining centers in that cell.
The new boring mill has travels of 118" in X, 79" in Y, 63" in Z and 28" in W. With a full 4th axis table that is 79" x 71" and a 22,000# load capacity, it is an addition that will help us provide our customers with larger capacities, faster lead times and throughput along with better quality and accuracy.
We just finished installing it last month and it is currently being booked for large oil & gas components and food packaging equipment.
As my friend Mike Mittler, President of Mittler Brothers Machine & Tool, and Past-Chairman of the NTMA would say, "Sell early and often". Mike, I hope you're reading!
I hope that this month's message finds you well and finding a way to endure this crazy summer heat.
