New Aerospace Manufacturing Cell Underway
PKB's new Aerospace manufacturing cell is well underway, with the delivery and set up of our new Cincom A32 CNC Automatic Lathe & associated tooling.
Pacamor Kubar Bearings is investing in its factory, by adding a Cincom A32 lathe to its primary turn capabilities. This state of the art lathe expands machine capacity and production efficiencies within the Troy, NY ball bearing factory. The Cincom A32 is reputed to be the world's fastest Swiss type CNC automatic Lathe. The new lathe will enable PKB to shorten its uniquely compact factory lead time of 8-10 weeks for standard bearings and respond more quickly to new and unique ball bearing requests from the aerospace community. Enhanced products, as a result of this new lathe, will include shaft and bearing assemblies, angular contact bearings, full complement bearings, and expedited responses to time sensitive prototype requests.
Pacamor Kubar Bearings is currently developing a new manufacturing cell for special projects with large Aerospace and Space OEMs. PKB believes this segment of the bearing market is critical to its long-term growth and viability. "The A32 will enable us to meet ultra tight tolerances that so many of our aerospace customers require. We can produce complex bearing designs, ultra tight bearing tolerances, faster prototypes, and many more special bearing sizes. With less downtime and fewer machine changeovers, we can be more responsive than we've ever been. From the smallest bearing we make to the largest, PKB is responding to the needs of the aerospace community with competitive prices, short lead times, and extremely high precision ball bearings", said Dwight Calkins, PKB Senior Engineer.
