Macfab expands multi-axis machining capability

News, Uncategorized

[two_third]

NEWS RELEASE: November 10, 2016: Macfab Manufacturing, a subcontract supplier of precision components and sub-assemblies, has today announced a major new investment in multi-axis machining.

The company has installed a BNE-51SY6 8-axis CNC Super Turning Center, made by Miyano, one of the world’s leading precision machining equipment manufacturers. The new machine, which features two spindles and two turrets with up to 24 revolving tool stations, will increase Macfab’s production efficiency and throughput. In addition to improved repeatability and faster cycle times – as a result of overlapped turning, milling, and drilling operations – the new machine will increase Macfab’s multi-axis mill/turn capability from 20 mm to 51 mm.

Macfab expands multi-axis machining CNC

“We are very excited about the new capabilities we’ll now be able to offer our customers as a result of this investment,” says Macfab president Chris Macmorine. “With increased productivity comes lower costs, which we can pass on to our customers. Plus, the new technology enables us to produce new components we weren’t able to do previously on a competitive basis. That’s going to appeal to many of our current customers and many new ones as well.”

For more information on Macfab’s multi-axis resources and its other manufacturing, finishing and assembly capabilities, contact Joe Magyar, Business Development Director, at joemagyar@macfab.ca.

Macfab completes relocation, expansion

News

NEWS RELEASE: December 3, 2015, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada — Macfab Manufacturing, a leading contract manufacturer of precision custom components and sub-assemblies, has announced the completion of its move to a new facility in Mississauga, Ontario.

As the central element of a major expansion of Macfab’s manufacturing and integrated services capabilities, the move effectively doubles its production floor space and increases throughput efficiency. Notably, Macfab’s clean room and laboratory facilities have increased four-fold. The company has added new staff and installed three new cleaning systems including a robotic solvent vapour degreaser, an aqueous ultrasonic precision cleaning unit, and a 600° C oven. As Macfab president Chris Macmorine explains, “With these new facilities and equipment, we can now handle larger components and sub-assemblies, provide more services, and work not only more efficiently but also more safely.”

Macfab compeltes relocation

Increased customer demand drives production expansion
While this move is the company’s largest and most extensive, Macfab has a long history of customer-driven growth. In 2015 alone, Macfab has seen significant growth, including the addition of new customers in Europe, the US and Canada. Similarly, the company’s new technology investments are also based typically on a specific customer’s evolving requirements. “We’re working more as partners with customers rather than just suppliers,” Chris Macmorine says. “It makes sense to our customers for us to do not only the production but also the cleaning, testing and assembly of the components. This approach has driven our shift towards offering an integrated services solution, and we see this trend becoming even more popular.”
