TCI Precision Metals Installs Second OMAX Waterjet

By on

TCI Precision Metals has installed a second OMAX 80X waterjet machining center at its facility in Gardena, Calif. The new machine is the second waterjet added in the last 12 months to keep up with growing demand for precision machine-ready blanks and other specialty parts.

“Our recent investments in both sawing and waterjet cutting equipment have paid off big for our customers by helping us shorten lead time and improve on time delivery. Most of our machine-ready blanks orders are for either aluminum or stainless steel alloys,” said Ben Belzer, president of TCI Precision Metals.

TCI Presicion Metals previously installed a new Schelling fm8 plate saw, capable of cutting aluminum and other nonferrous metals up to 6-inches in thickness at speeds up to 100 feet per minute. The company followed with the installation of its two OMAX waterjet machines, capable of cutting stainless steel alloys and other ferrous materials that are up to 8 inches thick on a 15-foot by 7.5-foot table. 

Founded in 1956, TCI Precision Metals is a family-owned, value-added metal services distributor, producing precision cut parts and machine-ready blanks from aluminum, stainless steel, and other alloys.
