Our recent addition to the quality department is an Oasis. http://www.georgeproducts.com/
This vision center gives us a quick visual representation of certain dimensions reliably. We are integrating this machine as another tool in our inspection department to add computerized reporting capabilities that some customers may require.
How do you deburr? And what is a burr anyway?
Recently we upgraded our tumbling department to eliminate inevitable burrs on some parts.
The two tumblers on the right are older technology, but still very helpful and we found we just needed to replace some equipment.
The sPINer (picture on left) adds new technology to this department by using SS pins to deburr our customers' parts.
Stay tuned for before and after pictures......
Thanksgiving 2016 we purchased this new machine and have already put lots of hours on it! The small envelope reduces cycle time. One of our parts we improved cycle time by 31%!
Recently we looked at my Great Grandfather's micrometer, and realized that it is 100 years old this year! Thanks to grandpa Claude, there are currently three successful machine shops running today.
After much consideration, we bought and installed the FIRST PLG-42 in the US. We have completely customized this machine to suit our needs with spindle thru coolant in order to flush out as many chips as we can!
What were the differences between 2012 IMTS and 2014
- 3D printing had a bigger presence at the show this year. A 3D printed car sparked attention from not only the manufacturing sector but from the general public and media sources as well. http://www.imts.com/show/newsletter/insider/article.cfm?aid=1151
- I was not able to attend this years show, but another team member was able to step in my place and he said it was eye opening.
This is truly an amazing show that inspires people in the field and is mystifying to those not in the manufacturing industry.
Stay tuned for the General Manager's favorite pick!!!!!
Can you believe we are finished with the first month of 2014. Denver Precision sold more parts in 2013 than in 2012 and 2014 is starting off strong. Maybe manufacturing in the US is increasing? Only time can tell.
We thank all of our customers, suppliers, and employees; we look forward to the demand of 2014.
This has been an interesting week with the general manager packing to leave for EMO- Hanover, Germany (an international machine trade show), and record rainfall. We are thinking of everyone in Colorado as we all try to dry out.
