PGM has added its seventh horizontal mill (four 2-pallets and three multi-pallets). This new state of the art multi pallet machine tool is the third to reach PGM’s floor. The new 6 pallet machine allows PGM to maximize spindle uptime while continuing to compete for short run repeat production components.
The 6 pallet machine has a 14,000 RPM spindle, high pressure coolant (1000psi), 180 tool capacity, free load and unloading, and other options that give PGM maximum flexibility and process reliability and repeatability.
This is yet another example of PGM’s continuous improvement strategy of balancing new technologies, training of its people and lean manufacturing.
PGM looks forward to the future of supporting our customers, and as always, we are working to solve our customers’ greatest manufacturing challenges.
