“New England manufacturers continue to produce some of the most innovative products in the world,” said Kevin Sullivan, president of Commercial Machine. “We are now one of the few machine shops in the area that offers an additional dimension in their manufacturing process.
Commercial Machine’s new SY Lathe features a Sub-Spindle with an Y-Axis which differentiates it from traditional machine shop lathes. This feature allows the machine to turn and mill parts which offers efficiencies in production for a wide variety of projects. Used in conjunction with Commercial Machine’s innovative fixture design capabilities, the equipment offers significant cost savings in the production of a wide variety of parts.
For example, the equipment was recently used to manufacture a sear, firing pin on a 40MM grenade launcher for the military. The part was produced more quickly and at less cost than originally projected due to the clear advantages provided by the SY Lathe.
“We look forward to helping our customers remain competitive in their markets by reducing their costs and time to market,” said Sullivan. “Our continued investment in special equipment like the SY Lathe shows our commitment to maintaining the manufacturing excellence that New England is known for.
