Read how Flex-Cell Precision brought work back in-house with the addition of two Tsugami Swiss Type CNC Lathes...
Established in 1992, Flex-Cell Precision, Inc. has seen continuous growth, and decided to stay competitive by producing their components in their own facility. President and CEO, Anthony Fanning, explains, “We subbed out screw machine parts to support our medical implantable device business for two to three years. Growth forced us to look at that strategy, which led to bringing the work in-house for cost and lead time reasons.”
“I was aware of the Tsugami brand and their reputation for producing high-quality CNC machine tools. We needed someone to hold our hand, and we had faith that our distributor’s relationship with Rem Sales would ensure a smooth progression into the world of Swiss Turning,” says Fanning.
He recalls, “Rem Sales did a turnkey for us for some small titanium screws featuring 2mm/2.5mm threads and hex drive features. The screws needed to be produced accurately and efficiently. This initial project comes to mind as being very important because we had to get up to speed on a machine we knew practically nothing about. We completely relied on the support from Rem Sales to help us, and that support was very good.”
“Our first Tsugami Swiss Type CNC Lathe has proved to be versatile and reliable over the three to four years we’ve had it, and we’ve recently purchased another,” says Fanning. He adds, “All aspects of our purchases were very professional and as promised. I would recommend Tsugami because of the capability and reliability of their CNC Lathes, and the support from Rem Sales. It was a very good experience and I would expect other companies to have the same.”
