RUSH, N.Y.—Global Precision Products, LLC, an AS9100D certified contract manufacturer of tight tolerance, high-precision machined components, recently made a significant investment in new machining technology, the company reported. Global Precision Products, primarily known as a Swiss-style turning company, said in a news release that its recent additions expand its vertical and horizontal CNC milling capabilities.
The company’s expanded vertical CNC milling capabilities include the addition of a Doosan DMP500/2SP vertical machining center with dual-spindle 4th axis for making parts out of 7075 aluminum. Two spindles operating in the same working envelope allow high-volume and greater productivity by creating two parts at the same time, the company said.
The second spindle has a unique 20mm W axis that allows for difference in the tool lengths, and two 4th-axis rotary tables retrofit for mirror imaged operation. The outcome is double productivity and capability, according to Global Precision.
Horizontal CNC milling capabilities were also added with the acquisition of a Makino a51nx Horizontal Machining Center, including special options for high-volume, high-speed machining.
The new HMC has a 20,000-rpm spindle with HSK-A63 toolholders, 133 tool changer, and Pro6™ control with Super GI.5—the latest generation of Super Geometric Intelligence, the company said. Super GI is reported to maintain the highest possible feed rates while maintaining precise workpiece geometry.
The Makino HMC also includes a High-Speed Smooth TCP (G43.4). This function includes Tool Center Point Control, which is intended to perform 4- and 5-axis machining by accomplishing tool length compensation while changing the attitude of the tool. High- Speed Smooth TCP is said to help detect any sharp discontinuities in the tool orientation generated from the CAM system. It also smooths the motion to reduce machine shock. The results are smoother surfaces and shorter cycle times, Global Precision said.
Global Precision Products (www.globalppi.com) was founded in 1997 and is headquartered in Rush, New York, outside Rochester. The company manufactures critical high-quality, precision-machined components and assemblies for customers in markets that include aerospace, defense, test and measurement, medical, optical and imaging, and commercial/industrial.
Global Precision Products said that it uses “the most sophisticated, automated machining systems and quality control protocols to produce precise, high-quality products that meet the most demanding tolerances.” The company is AS9100D and ISO 9001:2015 certified and ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) Registered.
