RCBI Charleston offers new advanced machining

CHARLESTON -- The Robert C. Byrd Institute for Advanced and Flexible Manufacturing has installed a new advanced machining capability at the RCBI Charleston Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center.

As part of RCBI's continuing effort to provide ready access to the latest manufacturing technology, it now has an Okuma MU-500-VA-L Machining Center available for both leased use and technical training. It delivers process-intensive machining and high-speed, high-accuracy cutting through the combination of 5-axis multitask machining with a turning function, RCBI reports.

The technology is ideal for mold and die shops as well as the production of highly complex aerospace components. For more information or to schedule leased use, call 304-720-7738 or 800-469-RCBI (7224).
