We invest in the highest quality milling equipment so we have minimal down time and super high precision.

  • Roeders linear motor technology eliminates ball screws that wear and need to be replaced.
  • All of our Roeders machines have glass scale feedback so temperature does not affect accuracy.
  • Our spindle capacity ranges from 36,000 - 42,000 RPM with a Swiss made spindle manufacturer.
  • Programmable machine feed rates up to 2,362 IPM.
  • All of our Roeders machines are update with the latest version of software so we have the latest technology.
  • New computers are installed in older equipment to increase reliability.

We believe in a highly ridged construction in our standard pre-finishing equipment.

  • These machines have a box way construction to keep vibration down and tool life up.
  • Most of these machines have glass scale feedback systems so the tolerances are held after years of operation.
  • Spindle speeds up to 7,000 Rpm with a gear driven gear box for maximum torque.
  • Through the spindle coolant and high pressure air at the cutter tip are added options.
  • Conversational programming and background editing gives the operator the ability to work at the machine while it is cutting other jobs.
