U.S. Tsubaki Power Transmission, LLC is pleased to announce the recent addition of state-of-the-art laser cutting machine to its Holyoke, Massachusetts Manufacturing Facility. This laser machine, along with the new CNC Brake Press and Mill, makes up U.S. Tsubaki’s LASER-EXPRESS capability. This will open the door to new opportunities which U.S. Tsubaki would have previously had to pass on due to long lead times or tooling issues.
The Holyoke, MA plant has made great strides recently in increasing its efficiency, capabilities, and productivity. Plant General Manager Chuck Monty enthusiastically states that “employees and managers are working together, in all departments, to ensure that Holyoke is running at its optimal productivity. The more efficient our processes are, the more productive we can be and the new LASER-EXPRESS capability is a great addition, giving us a wide range of new possibilities.”
LASER-EXPRESS is designed to aid in fulfilling the toughest Made-to-Order requests significantly faster than traditional stamping and bending processes. With the ability to create complex bent attachments and the flexibility to cut a variety of plates and attachment contours on standard ANSI or custom sizes, LASER-EXPRESS provides great flexibility for U.S. Tsubaki’s innovative engineers.
Mr. Monty also mentions that “every job will be assessed based on its complexity and size, but LASER-EXPRESS gives us options we previously did not have.” He continues, “And where it can be utilized, it will significantly reduce lead times and will reduce or eliminate special tooling costs.”
Globally, Tsubaki prides itself on the tremendous service and support it provides to its customers and this is just another example of how Tsubaki fulfills this goal.
