Capitol Adds Haas Machining Center
When the need arose at Capitol Stampings to expand our in-house manufacturing capabilities, we turned to a leader in the world of CNC automation. Capitol partnered with Haas Automation to provide a state-of-the-art vertical milling machine. By teaming with Haas, we were able to tailor a machine to fit our exact needs.
Our new VF5 met our criteria of quality, dependability, and flexibility and like Capitol Stampings products, the added benefit of made in America. We can maximize it’s capabilities of close tolerance manufacturing to provide additional manufacturing support to our tool department as well as some limited production.
This latest investment in new technology is really nothing new to Capitol Stampings. In fact this new vertical milling machine followed the purchase of a new 400 ton Macrodyne hydraulic press in 2010, fed and unloaded by two programmable Fanuc robots. In 2011, it was the addition of a 350 ton Cincinnati press brake. What’s next for our continuous improvement…our new eight-headed spot welder built by T.J. Snow? Stay tuned for our update next month on this newest piece of equipment.
