New Equipment Adds More Capacity
Capital investments to update technology and CNC machining center equipment is part of the winning strategy at Pride Tool. “Ensuring our employees are equipped with best-in-class technology and equipment to consistently produce high-quality precision parts for our customers has been our top priority this year”, stated Scott Schwarz, Pride Tool’s President.
One of the first investments was the addition of a new OKUMA MB-5000 II horizontal CNC machining center. It is hands down the most productive and fastest horizontal CNC milling machine that OKUMA has ever produced*. The CNC machine not only provides a smaller footprint on the production floor but does so with a much broader output capability, attributed to its reduced cycle time. This allows our employees to have more flexibility and room to work with the materials and finished products in a safer and more efficient manner. True to the MB-500’s claims, this machine was designed to help us achieve more in less time while ensuring easy maintenance procedures.
In addition, the MB-5000HII horizontal CNC machining center features a roller cam gear design for more dynamic and fluid movements. This provides Pride Tool machinists more control and freedom to perform sophisticated programs and produce higher volume production.
“We have been so pleased with the equipment and the ability to add capacity to keep up with our customer needs,” touted Scott. “There is a growing market for quality machining and fabrication and Pride Tool is poised to meet that demand,” he continued.
