Variety of CNC Production Machines

Computer Controlled Machining Centers & Computer Controlled Lathes 3, 4 & 5 Axis Capable

We have a wide array of machines to meet your various needs. Our versatile equipment and operations are geared around efficient computer controlled equipment featuring automatic tool changers and pallet shuttle material handling systems. That's why we can produce efficiently enough to economically compete with your in-house production costs or stay within your outsource budgets.

We have available to you six double-productive 4-axis lathes. These lathes provide valuable time saving turning capacity. In addition, we have large lathes equipped with up to 12 1/2 through hole spindles, tailstocks capable of up to 20' between canters and chucking capacity up to 48". All of these can machine complex angles, radii and tapers in one operation.

Our mill department incorporates seven 3-axis Mazak machining centers, three 4-axis G&L machining centers and one full 5-axis G&L machining center. Considering these capabilities and capacities, our lathe and mill departments can complete your most complex machining requirements.
