Ahaus Tool & Engineering Invests In Equipment Upgrade

RICHMOND, Ind., May 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Ahaus Tool & Engineering, Inc., a
leading provider of high-quality solutions to challenging manufacturing, tooling
and automation equipment needs, is pleased to announce the company has recently
purchased and installed a new vertical machining center, greatly expanding the
company’s production capabilities, specifically in medium- and large-part
machining and workholding fixtures.

The Okuma Millac 1052V II Vertical Machining Center has an 11,000-pound load
capacity, and an 86 x 41-inch table capable of handling large size and
quantities of parts. The machining center is equipped with the latest in Okuma
THINC OSP-P300M Control and Thermal Compensation, TAS-S & TAS-C, and a 30-HP
motor and 6,000-rpm spindle capable of cutting aluminum, stainless steel, tool
steels and exotic material.

“Our goal is to use the Okuma Millac 1052V II every day to enhance our machining
capability for workholding fixture base plate requirements, doing special work
on large vacuum molds, assembly machine sub-plates and various large special
shapes in all types of metals,” said Kevin Ahaus, president. “The isolated
sub-floor gives the Okuma great accuracy and repeatability.”

The Okuma Millac 1052V II features traditional box ways on all axes to provide
high levels of accuracy and rigidity over the long term. With the use of
variable speed gear head and large-diameter spindle bearings, the machining
center can perform heavy-duty cutting and rapid machining with large torque from
low to high speeds.

“This is the fun part of my job,” added Ahaus. “I am always on the lookout for
new equipment that will help Ahaus and our customers now and in the future, and
show our commitment to combining technology with American craftsmanship.”
