Marne, MI (PRWEB) June 12, 2011
West Michigan-based metal fabrication company DeWys Manufacturing announced today that it has invested in a new milling machine that focuses on faster feed rates and spindle speeds that will help reduce the cycle time of a part. The company has acquired a Mazak 410 Vertical Machining Center. The new machine has pallet tables, which will help semi-automate our milling process and open up some additional capacity in our machining center.
“We are continually looking for ways to improve our fabrication process, while making it easier on our operators. With this new machine, we can put down that reference manual and focus on producing parts rather than programming,” says Jon DeWys, President of DeWys Manufacturing, Inc. “The pallet tables allow us to increase the level of automation in the plant, which further reduces set up times and moves product through quicker and more efficiently.”
DeWys says that Mazak is one of the world leaders in building high end machining centers for tighter tolerance parts. The pallet tables are a key design factor that reduces set up times, but the Mazak 410 also has faster feed rates and spindle speeds, which will even further reduce the cycle time of a part.
With these numerous features, DeWys Manufacturing has captured a machine that will increase our capacity in the machining value stream and ultimately allow us to take on more projects and move parts through the plant faster. As a result, this speeds up our part turn-around rate and increases customer satisfaction.
