Precision Multi-Spindle Machining
Panek Precision’s growth is attributed to the automatic screw machine going back to our founding date in 1945. Today, cam and CNC multi-spindle screw machining services remain a core part of our business for high volume, tight tolerance components.
Unlike most CNC machine shops, Panek Precision’s multi-spindle screw machines are capable of machining a wide range of bar stock sizes for components requiring multiple spindle screw machining – as small as 1/8 inch diameter up to 4 inches in diameter.
Our multi-spindle screw machine lineup includes Gildemeister screw machines, Davenport and New Britain, and our state of the art 6-spindle Index Traub CNC screw machine.
Multi Spindle vs. Single Spindle
There are several advantages to a multi-spindle screw machine versus single spindle technology. The main advantage is faster cycle times due to the machining operations being “split” from one spindle to multiple spindles. Essentially, these machines allow for multiple tools to cut multiple pieces of material simultaneously.
