Joe Martello, Roscomac MD, interviewed by MTD talking about how new CNC machines dramatically reduce the time it takes to make components.

In this video, Joe explains how their new Citizen Miyano CNC machine has bought the cycle time for one component down by 75% from sixteen minutes to four. Clearly a huge time saving but, as Joe says, there are other efficiencies too:

  • Three operations down to one and easier logistics on the shop floor
  • Easier and faster machine setup
  • Less time checking each component
  • Less time monitoring work in progress

“As an exceptionally successful company, sporting 60 machines and 90 staff, they are obviously doing something right. Part of this is using Citizen machines.”
