The machining industry has seen its share of technological advancement s in the last 100 years. However, there has been no greater leap forward than the addition of a CNC machine. A CNC machine (Computer Numerical Controlled) machine pairs machining technologies and computers together to make the most efficient machining systems known to man. A CNC machine exists for nearly every process known to the machining industry and Anco has them! Our high speed cnc milling machines can operate in excess of 1500 inches per minute! There 4-axi and 30-tool capabilities mean that we can handle complex jobs without having to change machines or tooling. A CNC machine that a shop can’t do without is a high quality Turning machine.
Our facility has the latest high speed turning machines. They have the capabilities of turning an excess of 1800 inches per minute and 100 percent fully automated. These machines can manage 12 tools at a time which helps us reduce time spent loading different chucks and tooling. We only use the best machines available. Our plasma cutter is a CNC machine with bite! This mean machine uses inert gases paired with an electric arch to produce plasma. This plasma can cut through multiple materials including high tensile steel and titanium. Plasma is perfect for cutting thin and thick materials alike. Hand held plasma cutters can cut up to 2 inches thick while a cnc machine can cut up to 5 inches of material! A Plasma cutters focused energy is a great way to cut sheet metal and angled shapes. Recent advancements in this technology has made cnc machines like plasma cutters more affordable and accessible.
A cnc machine in our shop hat is similar to the plasma cutter is the cnc water jet. This machine uses focused water energy with a mild abrasive to cut through thin or thick sheets of metals and other materials. Anco’s shop has 6 different types of cnc machines ready for operation. We also have some manual lathes which can be used when more of a human touch is required. The modern machine shop may look different than a classic one, but their functions remain the same. Anco only uses the best cnc machine son the market because we know how important quality work is to our customers. If you want the best machines and best operators to work on your job then contact Anco today. Our 35 years in the machining industry is experience you can count on.
