Software & Equipment

The Okamoto DX model surface grinder is made of double “V” construction compared to conventional surface grinders with one “V” and one flat. Grinding time is minimized with automatic cycles for rough\finish grind and sparkout in 1 setup. Maximum travels are X37.5 x Y17.5 x Z20.0.

  Okamoto ACC1632DX Surface Grinder  New 2001

Mori Seiki NL2500SY Turning Center    New 2007

The Mori Seiki NL2500SY is an advanced mill\turn center with 7.5 HP live tools, “Y” axis and sub spindle.  We can handle complex parts in one setup which reduces the cost to you and decreases turn around time. We have an FMB 4’ barfeeder and a custom built Conveyor with a pick and place parts unloader for hours of “lights out “ Operation.

 

Fanuc 1iE 5-Axis, Wire EDM   New 2011

 

 2011

The wire EDM has an auto power recovery system, Auto wire threading  and a travel of 23.6 x 15.7 x 12.2. 5 axis simultaneous cutting allows us to machine complex shapes. Submerged machining allows for quicker edge starts. It also insures dimensional stability and minimal thermal expansion. The “E” model has patented technology that disengages the bottom contact for the final skim to reduce vibration which leaves the finest finish in the industry.

T21iFla Fanuc Robodrill  High Speed Machining Center with pallet changer.  New 2012

   The Fanuc Robodrill is a 30 taper machining center with a 24000 rpm spindle offering milling capability only thought of in 40 taper machines.

   The Fanuc 31-iA5 control offers 5 axis and high speed capabilities that allow us to machine mold core and cavity details much faster, decreasing cost and deliver times to our customers.  The Robodrill also has a 2 pallet pallet changer allowing for continuous spindle time on production jobs. Other features include Laser tool pre-setter, 21 tool turret and mist separator.

Okamoto ACC1224EXB Surface Grinder  New 2002

The Okamoto EXB Model surface grinder also has double “V” construction. This grinder is programmable using a 2 axis FANUC controller. Several levels can be ground in one setup and automatic wheel dressing and compensation insures accuracy and repeability.

Agie Spirit, Sinker (plunge) EDM    New 2005

Zeiss  Vista Coordinate Measuring Machine   New 2005

The Zeiss Vista CMM is key to our quality system. It is quickly programmed to provide in process inspection throughout the course of a production run. Reports are easily customized and stored on the system. Retrieving a program every time a part is ran is a real advantage of the Calipso software.

Parallel Tool & Die uses the latest in design and manufacturing software.

 

 

 

 

 

VISI Modelling is the foundation of all our VISI products and provides a robust and powerful solid and surface modelling system based around the industry standard Parasolid® kernel. Combined with Vero’s surface technology, model analysis and 2D design, VISI Modelling offers complete flexibility to construct, edit or repair the most complex 3D data.

 

VISI Machining 3D creates intelligent toolpaths on the most complex 3D parts. Dedicated high speed milling techniques and built in smoothing algorithms create highly efficient NC code. Intelligent toolpaths reduce cycle times on our machine, improve productivity and continuously produce high quality components.

The Mori Seiki Dura Vertical

5100 machining center is a highly accurate and reliable machining center.  The Fanuc

controller allows for high speed machining of mold cores and cavities, die cast dies and precision machine parts. Coupled with The Mori Seiki  DDRT-260 4th axis direct drive rotary table and our software, we can machine complex 4 and 5 axis parts with precision and 1 setup.

 The Dura has travels of

X= 41.3

Y= 20.9

Z = 20.1

15 HP, 12000RPM spindle.

Mori Seiki Dura Vertical 5100 with DDRT260 4th Axis

             New 2013

New for 2019 is the Fadal  VMC6030B II. This milling machine has a 10,000 RPM spindle; box ways; 60 x 32 x 30 Travels; coolant thru spindle; 1000 block look ahead on the controller and a 22.5 HP spindle.

    

      This machine tool increases our capacity to handle bigger, heavier details, larger injection molds and die cast dies while allowing us the increased feed rates to machine complex shapes and obtain the necessary surface finishes.

The new Agie Advanced Power Generator (72 Amps) married with integrated tool changing capacity and fully integrated "C" Axis allows for long hours of continuous burning of  complex geometry as well as exotic materials such as carbide and ceramics.
