Precision Machining Company Enhances Capability with Leitz PMM-G
“This new machine is a huge enhancement to our capabilities,” said Mike Manna, General Manager of Milwaukee Machine Works. “We are known for tackling the toughest, highest precision, turning and machining jobs in the business—jobs that other shops just don’t have the capability or expertise to handle. Now we will have a measuring machine with the size, capacity and accuracy to handle the very largest parts we are capable of making—single parts that are the size of small cars.”
Milwaukee Machine Works also plans to keep the new machine busy by pursuing ISO/IEC 17025 certification and offering contract inspection services to other manufacturers in the area. “Not everyone can have a machine with this capability, so when we’ve got available machine time, we’re also going to offer high accuracy inspection services to the local manufacturing community,” said Manna.
“Milwaukee Machine Works has always been a good customer of Hexagon Metrology, and represents the best of what American manufacturing is capable of,” said Jack Rosignal, Vice President of Sales for Hexagon Metrology, Inc. “We are pleased that the first PMM-G Coordinate Measuring Machine to be installed in America is going to a company like Milwaukee Machine Works, that has the commitment to precision manufacturing and the highest quality standards.”
The new Leitz PMM-G is scheduled to come on line in Milwaukee Machine Works’ ISO 9001:2008 certified facility by the second quarter of 2011.
