High volume runs with multiple spindle machining.
At Midwest Screw Products, Inc. we have 6-spindle automatic screw machines available for your production needs. We like to think of automatic screw machines as 6 manual lathes all bundled into a single machine with a rotating turret. As the part moves through the positions we’re able to machine both the outside and inside of the part in tandem. The ability to machine multiple areas of a part at once means we’re able to do 12-15 processes in a single cycle.
Used for high production runs, automatic screw machines typically have a longer setup but can produce high volumes quickly once running. This high production quick turnout during the run can help reduce the cost per part for many jobs. Depending on the specifics of the part, automatic screw machines allow our team to cut out additional secondary or thirds processes.
