At Cision, our combination of milling and turning capabilities means that there are very few geometries on the planet that we can’t tackle. Our lathe department was originally added to complement our milling but, over the last 15 years, it has grown to represent a sizable portion of our business. One of the primary reasons for this growth is our willingness to take on both very large and very small, precise parts. With spindle bores of over 3” with high-torque, high-rpm technology, we are uniquely positioned in the market and in comparison to other job shops. We’re able to deliver the micro machining and precision required by the medical industry, as well as the swings and cuts needed by companies in the mining and construction world.
In 2022, we are enhancing our turning offerings to include turning centers with subspindles and live tooling. Many of the jobs we do today started at shops with this type of technology but, eventually, they found their way to us due to challenges posed by rpm, torque, and overall part size. While we have proven effective in overcoming these hurdles with our current system, we also recognize the need for precision and the process capability advantages to be gained by adding this technology to our floor.
