During the last year Arca has upgraded its production in Tönisvorst with two new iNTEGREX processing machines. The 5-axis-machining centre Mazak INTEGREX i-400 – SmoothX 1500U, as well as the Mazak QUICK TURN 250MY SmoothG 1000U have been set up in the machine hall and successfully been put into operation. In January the planing for the new processing island, on which already the Mazak INTEGREX e-670 II has been started. The trio of new machines are designed in such a way, that the machines can support each other in a wide range of processing options and ensure shorter processing and lead times, as well as optimized process workflows.
Equipment that previously would have been produced on several machines, can now be completed on only one machine. Six employees were sent to Mazak for training and have put their skills to practical use in operating the machines.
The CAD/CAM connectivity as well as the complete infrastructure are implemented in a way that the new machining philosophy is reflected optimally in our processes from modelling up to the finished workpiece. With the new processing machines ARCA has taken its digitalisation to the next level. To learn more go to https://valve.co.za/products/brand/arca/
