April 19, 2018

Click here to read the full customer case study on how Angstrom Manufacturing uses Tsugami Swiss turning machines via distributor Hartwig, Inc. to speed up operations.
“As Angstrom continues to see growth, they made the decision to implement a fast making, part producing TSUGAMI S206. Previously outsourcing most of their parts, Angstrom is currently four months ahead of schedule with the utilization of their new TSUGAMI.
Chris Carron, owner of Angstrom and CNC machining veteran, jokes that he is so ahead of schedule that he may have to give the TSUGAMI a break for a while due to its speed.
“Close tolerances and no offsets days and days at a time… I am not afraid to run this machine unattended, overnight.”
~ Eric Scherrer, Machine Operator & Programmer
They are currently producing 1500 parts a day with the TSUGAMI S206. The cycle time was estimated to be 50 seconds, but is presently at running at 20 seconds per.
“Growing up pretty much my whole life in machine shops, these cycle times are just incredible.”
~ Chris Carron, Owner”
