TCI Precision Metals Expands Duplex Milling Capacity

New Amada THV460 Supports Increased Demand for Machine-Ready Blanks™

Today, TCI Precision Metals announced the installation of its newest Amada duplex mill, the THV460. Representing the latest technology in precision duplex milling, the machine is the newest addition to the TCI line of optimized milling machines used in the production of Machine-Ready Blanks. The THV460 will continue to reduce customer lead time as demand for Custom Made-to-Order and Standard Ready-to-Ship Machine-Ready Blanks continues to rise.

TCI Machine-Ready Blanks are milled in width and length, using the THV460’s specially designed twin spindle, in one setup instead of two. This reduces set-up time and increases efficiency.  One or more Machine-Ready Blanks can be milled simultaneously to the machines' overall dimensional capacity of 18.4"W x 18.4"L x 5.9"H.   The value is passed to TCI customers through shorter lead times and competitive pricing.

“We continue to invest in our people and equipment at TCI, focusing on what we do best: helping our customers eliminate material prep with Machine-Ready Blanks,” said Ben Belzer, President and CEO of TCI Precision Metals. By refining our equipment and processes to maximize quality and efficiency, we can provide customers with cost-effective, high-value, Machine-Ready Blanks that can reduce a shop’s overall cost by as much as 25% on a given production job,” added Belzer.

Custom Machine-Ready Blanks are precision milled to the customer’s net specifications and can be furnished as close as +/-.0005” dimensionally and as close as .002” in flatness, squareness, and parallelism. Each Machine-Ready Blank is deburred, cleaned, and vacuum packaged – ready to go directly from receiving into CNC machining centers.  Machine-Ready Blanks helps shops eliminate material prep and reduce set-up time, part movement, scrap, and wear and tear on machine tool inserts and cutters used to square material in-house.
