Count On Tools Inc., a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts, is pleased to announce that with the recent expansion of its manufacturing facility, the company has purchased and installed two DMG NHX-4000 horizontal milling centers to further increase production capabilities and lower product lead times. The new equipment expands COT’s current capabilities into more complex parts that can be manufactured with significant costs savings to the end-user.

According to DMG, the NHX-4000 are general-purpose horizontal machining centers enabling high-efficiency, continuous machining and mass production machining in various areas, such as the automotive and other mechanical fields. The entire structure is optimized for increased performance in static and dynamic rigidity. As a result, the models achieve the highest level of speed and accuracy demanded of a horizontal machining center.

Because extreme accuracy is mandatory, highly specialized precision equipment is necessary. The industries that COT serves count on accuracy of part specifications and on-time delivery of orders. The new DMG production cell will help Count On Tools achieve both. Additionally, the new machine handles jobs faster by providing increased production speeds and faster processing power.

According to company representative, Zach Shook, “This new equipment helps us to produce tight tolerance, precision components quickly and consistently. As a result, we can now respond to changing customer needs faster and at highly competitive costs.”

As a contract manufacturer and job shop, Count On Tools and its experienced, knowledgeable management team strives to provide a full line of services to its customers and to continue meeting customers' demands both now and in the future. For more information, visit www.cotinc.com.
