What’s new at FVT&D? Well, we're glad you asked!
With the changing of the seasons, comes many changes at FVT&D. We’re putting the final touches on the addition of our Variaxis cell, containing (3) Mazak I-800 5-axis machining centers, with an integrated high rise Palletech system housing 52 pallets.
The new technology offers additional capabilities, generating set-up efficiencies and more throughput. Large capacity tool magazines and multiple pallets allow common set-ups to remain intact, and change overs from job to job can be accommodated more easily with this technology.
Coming soon in October, the delivery of our new Mazak Integrex I-400ST multitasking machine, with turning/milling capabilities in one setup. Maintaining feature relationships, reducing set-ups, and shorter process times are realized with this technology.
Continued commitment by management to invest in new technology allows FVT&D to better serve our customers, by providing higher quality parts at competitive pricing. Coupling that with a commitment by our current administration on domestic manufacturing, the future looks good for American manufacturers.
