What’s new at FVT&D?  Well, we're glad you asked!20180928_4.jpg


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.
