TCI Precision Metals will be showing its precision Machine-Ready Blanks capabilities to customers at eastec, May 16 - 18, 2023, Eastern State Exposition, West Springfield, MA.
Machine-Ready Blanks from TCI Precision Metals help shops shorten setup time, reduce scrap, and increase overall throughput by up to 25% by eliminating material prep. Machine-Ready Blanks are guaranteed to arrive machine-ready for production, with standard-size Ready-to-Ship blanks available for shipment the same day or the next, or custom Made-to-Order blanks in production quantities that can be ordered for quick turnaround.
Precision blanks eliminate the need for in-house sawing, grinding, flattening, squaring operations, and outside processing. Each blank arrives deburred, clean, and individually packaged to avoid damage during shipping. Ready-to-Ship blanks can be ordered online for same-day or next-day shipping, and arrive square, flat, and parallel within ± .002” of specified dimensions all around. Custom Made-to-Order blanks are made to customer specifications and are guaranteed as close as +/- .0005” dimensionally and as close as .0002” flatness, squareness, and parallelism. “Customers can use the time they previously spent in setup and prep for more productive use of CNC machining centers, adding to their bottom-line profitability. And with our ability to consistently produce close tolerance, flat blanks, part movement is reduced, improving overall quality,” said Ben Belzer, President of TCI Precision Metals.
TCI is offering new customers an opportunity to try machine-ready blanks on their next job with an eastec trial promotion. Customers ordering Ready-to-Ship blanks online will receive 15% off their first order by entering code BLANKS in the coupon field at checkout. Customers considering Made-to-Order blanks, in production quantities, can receive a free sample blank made to their exact specifications along with their estimate. Restrictions apply, ask your TCI sales representative for more information.
