Machining centres boost manufacturing facility output

Four MAZAK machining centres have been installed by Count On Tools (COT), a provider of precision components and SMT spare parts following the recent expansion of its manufacturing facility, The equipment will increase production capabilities and lower product lead times and expands COT’s current capabilities into larger diameter parts, including more complex features that can be manufactured with significant costs savings to the end-user.

COTR has bought three MAZAK HQR-150MSY 9-axis Multi-task Machining Centres and one new Quick-Turn QTU-200MSY 6-axis Multi-task Machining Centre.

According to MAZAK, the HQR Series is designed for high volume productivity, featuring simultaneous first and second operations or balanced cutting/milling through its first/second spindles and upper/lower turrets.

The HQR machine configuration directly results in part-processing versatility and reduced cycle times among various operations – ranging from chuck work to the machining of large diameter bar stock.

The industries that COT serves count on accuracy of part specifications and on-time delivery of orders. The new MAZAK production cell will help Count On Tools achieve both.

Additionally, the new machine handles jobs faster by providing increased production speeds and faster processing power.
