Modern Machining Expands
August 1, 2019
Modern Industries, Inc.
Precision Machining and Assembly Division (MMD) has always been committed to
customer satisfaction and the highest quality standards. With changing times, we recently invested
$800,000.00 in new equipment, enabling increased production capacity and
new CNC machines entail many technological advances, resulting in major leaps
forward in production performance. The
CNC machines incorporate O-Loop automation systems for transportation of
workpieces and self-loading pick up spindles, allowing for 2 hours of
unattended run time. This is an
extraordinary improvement, as previous equipment involved two operators manually
loading parts throughout each shift. The
short cycle time and efficiency of this equipment enables us to increase
throughput by 40% for one customer, allowing them the ability to rely on us as
their sole supplier for this part. Newly
added in-process gauging incorporates inspection in the machining process,
probing critical features every 5th part. Any offsets found are automatically applied
to the parts next in line, allowing for superior quality control. The one and done ability of these machines
allows for all critical features to be machined in the same setup, resulting in
higher quality, less material handling, and an overall lower risk operation.
is committed to working alongside our customers to increase our capability,
flexibility, and employ new levels of automation.
