TCI Precision Metals Adds New Precision Plate Saw
Continued Investment in High-Volume Solutions Improves Customer Value
TCI Precision Metals announced, today, it has completed installation of its new high precision plate saw, the Schelling fm8. The saw is the latest in a series of investments the Company has made over the last 12-months in precision, high-volume equipment intended to reduce turnaround time to customers, increase efficiency, and continually improve quality.
“Our goal is to exceed our customer’s expectations in quality and efficiency. Our Machine-Ready Blanks are custom produced to net or near-net size with close tolerances, both dimensionally and in flatness, eliminating the need for shops to do in-house materials prep. Machine-Ready Blanks arrive clean, deburred and individually packaged, ready to go from receiving directly into the customers CNC machining center(s). The reason customers come to us is, we can prep materials for finish machining better, faster, and more efficiently then they can do it themselves,” said Ben Belzer, President and COO. “The better we are at what we do, the more value are customers realize,” added Belzer.
The new Schelling fm8 plate saw is best-in-class, capable of cutting aluminum, stainless and other nonferrous metals, up to 6-inches in thickness at speeds up to 100 ft/min. The saw is computer controlled, capable of nesting parts for minimal scrap, and cutting consistently at close tolerances of +/- .005” and within .005” squareness. For even tighter tolerances, duplex milling, double-disc and Blanchard grinding services deliver +/-.0005″ all around.
Founded in 1956, TCI Precision Metals is a family-owned precision manufacturer producing close tolerance Machine-Ready Blanks from aluminum, stainless steel and other alloys. Sawing, Waterjet Cutting, Grinding, Milling and Finishing operations with the added benefit of being a plate and sheet distributor make TCI Precision Metals a one stop materials source for precision Machine-Ready Blanks. The Company also welcomes customer supplied materials. TCI Precision Metals serves the needs of the medical, oil & gas, aerospace, industrial equipment, defense, food packaging, semiconductor and many other industries.
