Any company can claim to have experience in design engineering, but if that company doesn’t have any experience on the manufacturing side of things, then there really is no hard evidence that your machine can even be manufactured. Apart from manufacturing experience, how can you rest assured that a Contract Manufacturer will be able to execute your break-through technology?
Yesterday, we were honored in hosting college students interested in the manufacturing industry. Due in part to our commitment in hiring young talent we always welcome the opportunity to provide tours of our facilities to the next generation of manufacturers.
As another year closes, the time for reflection opens. Looking back on all that 2018 had to offer us, we couldn't be more grateful for the continued support from our customers and dedicated staff. As we continue to move ourselves forward, and prepare for the year 2019, we want to share with you all of the exciting things that 2018 brought for us.
There's Benefits in Purchasing Higher Level Assemblies
Purchasing managers and their counterparts have days filled with tedious activities which include supplier evaluations, plant visits, contract negotiation, Engineering fiascoes, all while maintaining database records. The more suppliers and parts that a purchasing department is managing leads to a more cumbersome workload with endless tasks that need to be accomplished.
PEKO is proud to announce a new industry we've recently served on our website: The Communications Industry. After proving to be an authority in the Communications Industry by executing the contract manufacturing for several projects within the industry, new details can be found on our website. Whether it's 5G, RF, Radar, Satellite or IoT, our experience with innovative technologies can bolster any OEM looking to commercialize products in the Communications market.
Do you have machinery or equipment that you need manufactured? Or, maybe you have some major mechanical equipment that needs to be assembled. Or maybe it’s just the beginning of a break-through idea that you have, but you need some more help with the engineering & design. Perhaps you just can't justify building a full-functioning factory. Whatever the reason may be, if you're looking to outsource, knowing where to turn to may be overwhelming. We're here to help.
We've had many new CNC Machinery announcements lately–as we continue to grow our business–but this newest announcement is something that we've been looking forward to for months now. If you've been keeping up with our latest blog posts, then you've had some foresight into this new addition. The KIWA Methods-KMH-1000B is one of the largest horizontal machines in our shop, to date!
New Inspection Capabilities
PEKO's newest machinery announcement is an exciting new addition for our inspection department. After overcoming a few obstacles with its delivery, the new DEA CMM now sits inside the center bay of our Engineering and Development Center. The machine's height is over 14 feet, with an impressive measuring range over its 3 axes:
- X-Axis: 59.06"
- Y-Axis: 78.74"
- Z-Axis: 55.12"
The machine comes equipped with a Renishaw PH10MQ Probe along with CLIMA Temperature Compensation. These are beneficial accessories when installed into its new home, a climate controlled room around this new addition.
In with the NEw
PEKO's brand new machine is a HAAS VF-6/40. Delivered last week, this machine is now completely set-up and running, located inside our CNC shop. The HAAS VF-6/40 is a 3-axis machine capable of machining parts up to 4000 lbs. This HAAS has a small footprint compared to some of the machines throughout our facilities, however it's the perfect size for milling parts we need for manufacturing our OEM customers' Major Mechanical Assemblies. This 40-taper machine uses a 8100-rpm spindle and has a tool capacity of 24+1. And of course, a huge work envelope of 64" x 32" x 30".
New CNC Machinery
PEKO's newest machinery highlight? The Haas EC-1600. While we have had this machine for a few months now, we wanted to share with you the astounding capabilities it offers and how we have been able to advance our business because of it. This four axis machine is located in our Lee Rd facility and can hold up to 10,000 lbs of metal for cutting. The increase weight limit allows us to cut larger parts for our major mechanical assemblies, and has a max cutting speed of 500 in/min.
