New Equipment Update – More Large Part Capabilities, Fab Masters Company, Inc.

The Young Guns Are Taken Over, Meet Josh Our New Programming Manager, Fab Masters C

The Heian is the third CNC Router to be added to our fabrication line-up, we also have 21 CNC Machining Centers. The demand for larger and longer aluminum parts prompted this decision. Our two largest CNC machining centers and Bridgemill were so backlogged with orders we needed to ease that strain, or turn away business. Are you kidding? The solution came in the purchase of an Onsrud CNC Router with a 27 foot long table, and then another Multiax CNC Router with twin-heads was added shortly after. These with the Heian, dropped our backlog by 33% to 40%.

For example, a conical shape with an outside mill swipe is a difficult and time consuming program to write manually, but the CAM software out puts this very quickly. Speed being the advantage, there are disadvantages such as the programs are more feature based and lengthier, and cannot be edited on the production floor. Everything we do here is job specific so there is no right or wrong way to write programs. Although Josh feels we may need to switch to this technology in the future if 5th axis mills are brought in. He sees his job as a continual learning experience saying, Each project is unique, and has its own problems to solve. Also, I am learning more about the routers, their programming needs are different than the machining centers. He has already started on some long term goals to improve efficiency and processes by maximizing our capabilities. Such as utilizing more of our dual table and head capabilities, the new Heian router can run a two step operation in one set-up.
