New, automated equipment allows operations to be completed with a single set up providing customers with faster time to market.

Midwest Precision (https://www.midwestllc.com/), a Tribus Aerospace Company,( https://www.tribusaerospace.com/), recently announced the addition of a Mazak Quick Turn 200MY turning center to its Eastlake, Ohio facility.
Midwest Precision will now be able to combine automation expertise with the multi-tasking features designed into the 200MY. This combination of the main turning spindle and the rotary tool milling spindle allow for more operations to be competed with a single set-up, providing faster time to market for Midwest Precision’s military defense, energy, aerospace, and precision industrial customers.
“This latest investment in manufacturing technology helps Midwest improve process CPK, improve cross hole positioning, and maintain difficult-to-achieve finish turning tolerances” said Paul Ruley, General Manager for Midwest Precision.

The new Makino Mazak Quick Turn 200MY turning center is automated with “lights-out” performance. In addition to the automation, the new turning center features:

  • Axis Travels: X=9.00", Y=4.00", Z=23.63" W=21.76
  • Mazatrol CNC Control
  • Maximum Swing = 26.60”
  • Maximum Machining Diameter = 14.76”
  • Maximum Bar Work Capacity = 2.6”
  • Maximum Machining Length = 21.286”
  • Chuck Size = 8”
  • Maximum Speed = 6000 rpm
  • Motor Output = 36.0 hp
  • Number of Tools = 12
