We just couldn’t pass this up!  Another solid shop upgrade…

 

In late November the opportunity to purchase a new CNC machine was presented to us and we just couldn’t pass up the deal.  Our new Milltronics VM17 is another solid upgrade from our current Partner 1 (which we retired) and Partner 6 CNC machines that we currently have.  We still LOVE our VM30 😉 but this is an awesome addition to Tin Indian! We are currently in the process of tooling up, transferring code and fixing some broken items.

 

The machining capacity of this machine is again greater than the P1 and P6 and it is equipped with a 20 pocket tool changer as well.  This should help us even further with machining capacity as we bring some new projects online.   We are looking forward to many years of service from our new Milltronics VM17!  Special thanks to Mark Kauffman for his help in acquiring and getting this major CNC upgrade on site & in our shop!
