T/CCI Manufacturing CNC Machining Division Develops Largest in Class Machining Center

NEW Toyoda FH1600SW-i provides highest cutting performance and maximum productivity to address evolving industry needs

PR Newswire

DECATUR, Ill., Aug. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- T/CCI Manufacturing, a world leader in high precision large format CNC Machining including metal turning, milling, drilling and assembly, has developed a new horizontal machining center featuring the largest work envelope in its class. The Toyoda FH1600SW-i offers the greatest machining capacity and flexibility for large part applications in heavy construction, oil and gas, high-speed rail and other industries that require high precision, large format parts.

The Toyoda FH1600 is responsible for the design, machining and assembly of hitches, brackets and frames for Caterpillar and KOMATSU machines up to 4500 lbs with a capability of up to 16,000 lbs. It allows T/CCI to create fracking pumps for the oil and gas industry and with the unique capability to hold extremely tight tolerances, provides the capability to develop bogies and frames for high-speed rail.

As the world of machining evolves, the demand for large part applications in renewable energy fields has and increased substantially, with a focus on equipment used in plants which supply new types of energy, such as shale gas and wind power.
"There is a definite need in the market to build larger, more durable machines with the capability to deliver end-to-end solutions for large format parts in a variety of industries," T/CCI President Richard Demirjian said. "In projects of this scale, there is no room for error. We fully understand and appreciate the precision and attention to detail it takes to build highly engineered, rugged machines and the Toyoda FH1600 has amplified our ability to take on the largest and most complex jobs with the highest level of precision and efficiency."

The FH1600SW-i has a maximum workpiece swing of φ3,200 mm and can hold a maximum load of 8,000 kg, making it capable of supporting large workpieces of the maximum standard size class, for which it has the necessary and sufficient machine stroke. The FH1600 is equipped with a quill spindle that allows better access to the inner areas of workpieces, enabling machining of deeper areas.

"The FH1600SW machine is designed to not only manufacture large parts but, manufacture with peak efficiency. The rapid traverse rate of 40m/min can be up to three times faster than your traditional boring mill type machine traditionally used for large part manufacturing. The FH1600SW machine has the ability to slash cycle times inside the machining area as well as providing efficient workflow with the standardly equipped automatic pallet changer. The 6" bar with a max extension of 29.5 allows for a greater accessibility for any application. The speed and cutting performance coupled with the largest workpiece capacity in its size truly make Toyoda's FH1600SW a great asset to any large part contract manufacturing operation striving for efficiency and return on investment," says Graham Roeder, Toyoda National Product Manager.

T/CCI's Contract Manufacturing division handles some of the largest and most complex projects for companies around the world. The state of the art, large format, CNC machines are equipped with dual drives for increased capacity and the technology to machine high strength materials at maximum accuracy. The result is reduced downtime and faster production cycles for customers.
T/CCI's CNC Contract Machining division provides end-to-end solutions for the largest, most complex custom projects. From design to machining through to assembly and delivery, T/CCI is fully equipped with advanced computer technology and software to meet customer needs.
