Minneapolis, Minnesota: Marshall Manufacturing now offers four Swiss machines that operate together with no operator intervention utilizing two robots, a parts cleaning station, and inspection system to produce precision families of different medical components.
This automated cell optimizes speed, quality and economy. The system is designed to
produce a wide range of feature generating techniques. Along with standard milling and turning, this system can broach, polygon mill, hone, knurl, burnish, hobb (gear cutting) and thread (including thread whirling and thread rolling) as well as other complex machining processes. Part diameters range from .050 to .750 inches in lengths to 10 inches.
The cell is designed to create specific manufacturing processes for longer running jobs
for the most cost-effective per unit cost. Designed as a low cost solution, the cell optimizes processes and provides a flexible delivery schedule in medium to high volumes (20,000 to 500,000 pieces annually). The automated cell is a very cost-effective choice for producing families of similar parts.
Once a process is created, the cell is designed to minimize changeover between parts.
Process standardization (pre-set cutting tools, custom designed pick-off and ejection tooling, CAM program generation and programming adaptations utilizing macros, etc.) allows seamless changeover from one part to the next. In addition, the ability to switch over quickly between different longer running jobs allows lower inventory levels while providing delivery schedule flexibility.
"Medical component designers have a new and better option for sourcing their families of parts, large and miniature," reports Tom Plantenberg of Marshall Manufacturing Company. "For the right part project, this system is extremely fast while providing the desired quality at a very competitive price."
Marshall Manufacturing is an ISO certified manufacturer with over 20 years experience.
The company has been recognized nationally as having "advanced the gold standard" of Swiss machining. The company also offers CNC turning, CNC milling, custom bending of small diameter tubing and wire, and metal forming.
