TCI Precision Metals Invests in High-Volume Solutions for Machine-Ready Blanks
March 13, 2020
TCI Precision Metals announced it has completed installation of its new high precision plate saw, the Schelling fm8. The saw is the latest in a series of investments the company has made over the last 12-months in precision, high-volume equipment intended to reduce turnaround time to customers, increase efficiency, and continually improve quality.
“Our goal is to exceed our customer’s expectations in quality and efficiency. Our Machine-Ready Blanks are custom produced to net or near-net size with close tolerances, both dimensionally and in flatness, eliminating the need for shops to do in-house materials prep. Machine-Ready Blanks arrive clean, deburred and individually packaged, ready to go from receiving directly into the customers CNC machining center(s). The reason customers come us is, we can prep materials for finish machining better, faster, and more efficiently then they can do it themselves,” said Ben Belzer, president and COO. “The better we are at what we do, the more value are customers receive.”
The new Schelling fm8 plate saw is best-in-class, capable of cutting aluminum and other nonferrous metals, up to 6-inches in thickness at speeds up to 100 ft/min. The saw is computer controlled to help next parts for minimal scrap, and cutting consistently at close tolerances of +/- .005” and within .005” squareness. For even tighter tolerances, duplex milling, double-disc and Blanchard grinding services deliver +/-.0005″ all around.
