Matritech can provide high-speed part production using efficient CNC equipment. The Drummondville, Que.-based metal parts manufacturer continually invests in fixed assets that expand its capabilities. One of the company's latest investments is a horizontal CNC machining centre with two integrated pallet changers.
Efficient CNC machining
This machining centre offers high efficiency with a pallet change time of eight seconds. It also features a 24+1 side-mount tool changer with an average tool-to-tool time of 2.1 seconds. Since Matritech has an experienced tooling department, it can promptly provide special tools and retaining jigs to meet any need. The tool changer can handle all types of tools with its maximum tool weight of 5.4 kilograms (12 pounds) and maximum tool length of 305 millimetres (12 inches) from the gauge line. In addition, the machining centre uses synchronized (rigid) tapping to eliminate the lead-thread distortion and start-thread pullout that’s involved with tapping holes the old-fashioned way.
Some of the other efficient automated equipment Matritech uses includes an automatic bundle saw, a robotic bending cell and CNC bending presses with optic sensors.
Range of services
Matritech has the capability to provide customers with a one-stop shop for metal parts. The company offers services such as stamping, laser cutting, CNC punching, bending, welding, extrusion, assembly and coating. The synergy between Matritech's tooling designers and programmers optimizes machining operations. The result is faster turnaround times for metal parts that require multiple processes, such as welded assemblies that incorporate machined parts, extrusions and sheet metals.
