Prototype to Production

Podmore Manufacturing Inc., operates state-of-the-art Deco 2000 CNC Swiss screw machines that offer the speed and productivity of the old cam-style Swiss type screw machines and the flexibility and precision of CNC. These multi-axis machines allow us to produce simple to very complex CNC Swiss screw machining parts without the need for second operations.

Our Swiss CNC sliding headstock machines are equipped with LNS Tryton automatic bar loaders. These automatic bar changers allow us to run lights-out production, and run bar stock from .040” (1.0 mm) to .625” (16 mm) to reduce material waste. The flexibility of the multi-axis precision CNC combined with the automatic bar loader make these machines suitable for running quantities ranging from prototype to production.

Features and Benefits:

  • Independent slides allow four tools to cut at same time.
  • Up to 12 axis machining for simple to complex parts.
  • Flexible scheduling
  • Lights out production
Main and Sub-spindle Polygon milling/turning — the burr free machining of multiple facets on the diameter or end of a part without stopping the part spindle. For example, you can create a square feature on a part without stopping the spindle.
