    President, KRC Machine Tool Solutions

  • NDEPENDENCE, KY, February 2019—celebrating 30 years in business, KRC Machine Tool Solutions, a premiere leader in the development of machine tool and manufacturing solutions, is proud to introduce the latest state of the art composite machining center.   


    The new KRC FUSION VI high performance machine tool is a modular large format gantry system capable of being parametrically configured for a vast range of sizes and configured for specific or multiple processes. The high stiffness structure has been developed over multiple years of Dynamic Finite Element Analysis and verified through virtual and actual machine modal analysis.  

    The primary vertical mast configured for milling is capable of five axis, high speed, high volume material removal and precision drilling, routing and countersinking. The secondary mast executes precision six-axis abrasive waterjet trimming, powered by Flow ultra-high waterjet intensifiers, cutting heads and expertise. Multiple quick change kinematic cutting heads are available to meet even the most complex geometries. 

    With our integrated metrology package, the FUSION VI is also capable of performing complex part alignments, inspection, spring back compensation and tool path correction. This configuration is tailored for the complete processing of composite aerostructures, saving manufacturers significant amounts of time and money while delivering the highest part quality and peace of mind.

    According to the company president Scott Ashworth, “Our world class engineers and state of the art engineering methods have allowed us to design and produce a product that delivers to the market the latest in composite cutting technology, setting us apart from our competition. The KRC FUSION VI is a modern evolution of a fantastic design that will accelerate the growth and expansion of KRC Machine Tool Solutions worldwide. Throughout our years in business, we have always strived to “be the best” and give our customers the best possible solutions available, and this exceeds all expectations as we truly believe this is the best machine on the market.”

    All of the FUSION VI machines can be provided with either FANUC or Siemens controls, flexible or dedicated tooling and fixtures, multiple machine bed options, and automation. Each system is tailored as a turn-key solution and configured to match the specific and unique process requirements of each customer.

    About KRC Machine Tool Solutions

    In 2018 KRC entered into a Technology Agreement with Flow Aerospace, LLC for the rights to the design and manufacture of their Gen 5 CMC gantry work centers. The Gen 5 Composite Machining Centers, introduced in 2016, represented the newest in a line of Composite Machining centers dating back to 1990.

    KRC’s 30 years of design, build, and retrofit experience, along with Flow Aerospace and Ascent Aerospace as experienced supplier partners, uniquely positioned KRC to be the leader, integrator, and primary supplier of the now KRC Fusion VI Series- the latest evolution of this product line since its initial release in 1991.

    KRC was founded in 1989 by a team of machine tool experts. KRC is a leading machine tool solutions company. Attributed to our strong foundation base from years of experience and satisfied customer portfolio, KRC is known as the premier provider in the areas of custom machine builds, CNC retrofitting, machine rebuilding, and machine tool services and repair serving all key industrial markets nationwide.
