Testimonial about a New HMC
CS Tool Engineering, a mold manufacturer in Cedar Springs, Michigan, credits the addition of a Makino a82 HMC with a pallet changer and modular fixturing system for reducing setup time by half.
The shop’s experience demonstrates that such features aren’t useful only for production environments. Streamlining setups can be equally beneficial for a high-mix, low-volume operation like a mold shop, particularly for engineering changes. That story is told in the video above, produced by Makino, as well as this January issue case study.
