Manufacturing improvements never cease. No matter what field you’re in you have to bear in mind the latest advancements. Here at SMC, we always try to see how the latest technology can help us make better attachments.
We had some basic CNC machines originally that were all manual tool changers. They had no interface to see CAD files and they could only do the basics. We needed something with some power behind it. Something that could read DXF’s quickly change tools and a whole host of other things.
We sometimes manufacture so huge parts so we needed something big. We opted for a Hurco VMX 64. What was taking an hour or more now takes us 20 minutes. It can natively read DXF’s and not just that, we can pick and choose what features to machine.
Don’t worry either, the price of our attachments stays the same. For us this is personal. We like to be proud of our work and want to give each and every customer the best quality product we can make.
