Large capacity in both machine size and work volume

Shown here is just one cell of our 4- and 5-axis machining capability.

Large horizontal milling

Tooled for difficult to machine materials and geometries.

Hermle 5-axis high speed machine

One of our recent acquisitions was this super-precision high-performance machining center.

FTP Pragma Horizontal Machining Center

With its fixed table, changeable milling heads, and enormous 27-1/2 foot by 10-1/2 foot, x 4-1/2' travels, this machine's weight capacity is unlimited, with material removal to match!

Massive material removal

With unmatched machining performance, we can provide a stronger and more accurate part machined from solid rather than built up from multiple parts.

DMG model DMC 125 FD 5-axis machining center

High-speed, high-precision milling and turning center combines a direct-drive rotary table with full 5-axis milling for advanced capabilities. The high-speed pallet changer and precision fixturing system ensure maximum productivity.
