    New Amada THV800 Duplex Mill Improves Efficiency, Supports Increased Demand for Machine-Ready Blanks™

    Gardena, California, September 24, 2019

    TCI Precision Metals today announced the installation of its newest high tech milling machine.  The new Amada, THV800 is the latest in precision duplex milling and adds to the line of optimized milling machines used by TCI Precision Metals in the production of Machine-Ready Blanks. The THV800 will continue to shorten customer lead time and handle increasing demand for Custom Machine-Ready Blanks.


    TCI Machine-Ready Blanks are milled in width and length, using the THV800’s specially designed twin spindle, in one setup instead of two. This reduces set up time and increases efficiency.  One or more Machine-Ready Blank can be produced together, up to the machines' overall dimensional capacity of 16.93"W x 16.93"L x 9.6"H. The value is passed to TCI customers through shorter lead-times and competitive pricing.


    “At TCI we continuously refine our equipment and processes to maximize quality and efficiency.   As a result, we are able to provide customers with cost-effective, high value, Machine-Ready Blanks that can reduce a shop’s overall cost by as much as 25% on a given production job,” said Ben Belzer, President of TCI Precision Metals.”


    Custom Machine-Ready Blanks are precision milled to the customer’s net specifications and can be furnished as close as +/-.0005” dimensionally and as close as .0002” in flatness, squareness and parallelism. Each Machine-Ready Blank is deburred, cleaned and vacuum packaged – ready to go directly from receiving into CNC machining centers.  Machine-Ready Blanks eliminate material prep, reduce set up time, part movement, scrap and wear and tear on machine tool inserts and cutters used to square material in process. 


    Founded in 1956, TCI Precision Metals is a family-owned, wholesale, Machine-Ready Metals Distributor, producing precision Machine-Ready Blanks from aluminum, stainless steel, and other alloys. Sawing, Grinding, Milling and Finishing operations with the added benefit of being a plate and sheet distributor make TCI Precision Metals a one-stop source for quality aluminum, stainless and other alloy blanks. TCI Precision Metals offers customers rough CNC milling and turning services when large amounts of material need to be removed or features added to solid parts or castings. Complete-to-print components can also be s.  TCI serves the needs of the medical, oil & gas, aerospace, industrial equipment, defense, food packaging, semiconductor, and many other industries.
