Franklin Lakes, N.J. (PRWEB) February 11, 2013
Mitsui Seiki has officially opened the doors of a new Turbine Technology Center located in the company’s Franklin Lakes, NJ facility.
“Our existing and potential OEM and supply chain customers in the turbo machinery industry are able to conduct test cuts, apply different processes, experiment with cutting tool designs, and prove out CNC programs,” says Tom Dolan, Vice President. “They can also try different integrated in-process quality control devices and software. The Center’s resources help them determine the best strategies and solutions for their specific needs in their own factories.”
Likewise Mitsui Seiki uses the Center to further enhance its significant aero and powergen turbine knowledge and applications expertise. Engineers use the center like a lab to research and develop new, relevant technologies as they become available. The company will also use the Center to refine its own machine designs.
“Our goal is to become our clients’ most responsive source to present, demonstrate, and evaluate new solutions so they can machine their turbine parts more efficiently and effectively,” says Dolan.
The 3000 sq. ft. Mitsui Seiki Turbine Technology Center has three dedicated 5-axis machining centers that can accommodate small and mid-size turbine components including blades, blisks, and impellers. Additionally, other related work such as fuel system, disks, vanes, and ancillary parts can be processed. The new Technical Center is staffed by senior applications engineers with several years of experience in turbine component machining. The company is also in discussion with certain industry and academic collaborators to participate in the Center to contribute to its knowledge base and systems approach in the areas of CAD/CAM, tooling, inspection, and productivity software.
