Picture 1 of 24

Weber Knapp Company recently purchased and installed a new Swiss Style CNC turning center manufactured by Tsugami. It was purchased to increase turning capacity. The turning centers currently in use were at full two shift capacity while on extended hours. The additional turning center will eliminate the need to outsource parts as was necessary with demand outpacing capacity.

The new machine can handle larger diameter parts by processing bar stock up to 1.250 diameter. Previous equipment maxed out at 0.750 diameter. More complex parts can be machined without secondary operations with an increased number of full axes of control, more live cross tools, and significantly more tool posts.
