This high precision vertical machining center lets us take advantage of the latest cutter tool technology while reducing cycle time significantly.
Larson Tool has taken advantage of the latest machining technologies to offer expanded capabilities and greater efficiencies. Over the past five years, various purchases have been made to accomplish this including a new W.E.D.M., a CNC Mill, and Lathe. To keep up with customer demands for shorter and shorter lead times, Larson made a commitment to increase capacity in the area of flat work. To facilitate this, a new Mazak 200B Vertical Machining Center was put online in September, 2002.
This vibratory tumbling machine increases our mass finishing capability and provides an even higher degree of finish quality to the parts we supply.
New Vibratory Finishing Machine Adds Capacity
In response to our customers’ growing production requirements, Larson has added a Giant GB-20 vibratory abrasive finishing machine to our mass finishing department. With its spiral bottom and cast urethane separator screen, this unit features 100% separation of parts and media. It was also supplied with a PLC-controlled, fully automated unload cycle and electronic variable speed.
Together with new ancillary material handling equipment, this unit greatly increases our mass finishing capability, gives us capacity for larger parts, and helps us to improve the finish quality of the parts we supply to our customers.
Our parts finishing capabilities are very diverse, from cleaning to deburring to burnishing and edge conditioning. We invite you to contact our sales staff to discuss how we can meet your requirements.
