As Cision continued to grow, our need to mill increasingly complex geometries across multiple planes grew, as well. To address this, we invested heavily into new machining technologies, including 15,000 rpm direct-drive spindles, Kaiser Big Plus dual-contact spindle systems, roller bearing ways, through spindle coolant, full 4th-axis machining, and laser tool setting with in-process tool checking.
Because of the investments we’ve made, we are positioned to tackle the toughest jobs around. It’s not just the machining technology, but also the software, the rigidity of the fixture and system, and the tools and toolholders that all need to be synchronized to successfully achieve the expected results. These variables come together to create a robust system that produces a reliable, stable environment. They also provide a conduit through which we can deliver and prove a process capability that is uncommon in our industry.
