TCI Precision Metals Adds Plate Saw


TCI Precision Metals, Gardena, Calif., completed installation of its new the Schelling fm8 high-precision plate saw. The saw cuts aluminum and other nonferrous metals up to 6 in. thick at speeds up to 100 ft. per min. The saw cuts consistently at close tolerances of ±0.005 in. and within 0.005 in. squareness. “Our goal is to exceed our customer’s expectations in quality and efficiency,” said Ben Belzer, president and COO. “Our machine-ready blanks are custom produced to net or near-net size with close tolerances, both dimensionally and in flatness, eliminating the need for shops to do in-house materials prep.”
