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.
With a travel of 44.0 x 20.0 and precise accuracy, we now have the ability to process 95% of flat work through this one machine. Additional options purchased allow us to take advantage of the latest cutter tool technology, reducing cycle time by more than 50% over existing equipment.
