TCI Installs New Duplex Mill

By on
TCI Precision Metals, Gardena, Calif., has installed a new You JI DSM1200 Series duplex mill. The machine is the latest addition to a growing number of duplex mills used in the production process of precision Machine-Ready Blanks.

The DSM1200 Series boosts an impressive X-axis travel of 68.9 inches and a Y/Z-axis travel of 29.3 inches, with a max load capacity of 11,024 pounds. The addition of the large new format mill is intended to support the production of larger parts while improving efficiency and shortening customer lead time as demand for custom made-to-order and ready-to-ship machine-ready blanks continues to rise.
“We are committed to providing our customers with value in the form of precision high-quality blanks, delivered on time and at a price that is less than they can produce the same materials in their shop. Our investment in this new large-format duplex mill helps us produce larger and more machine-ready blanks in less time. The value is passed to TCI customers through shorter lead times and competitive pricing,” said Ben Belzer, TCI Precision Metals’ president and CEO.
