Expanding Services, Decreasing Production Times

May 08, 2019

CHALLENGE

Carlson Tool & Manufacturing, located in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, purchased their first Toyoda FA1050S in 2011. The production-focused company wanted to add more capabilities to their tool and contract machining division. After research, price comparisons and a recommendation from a local area shop, Carlson Tool decided Toyoda was the answer.

After success with their first machine, Carlson continues to expand their fleet with a range of Toyoda's to develop their work envelope and increase capacity across the board.

GOALS

  • Expand work envelope to meet the growing demands of customers. 
  • Multi-purpose machines to increase efficiency and flexibility.
  • Add new powerful and reliable technology to the roster. 
  • Standardize equipment in the contract machining division . 
  • Ensure strong after sales support.

SOLUTION

Carlson Tool went with a range of Toyoda machines to meet their needs. Horizontal machining centers DELIVER UNMATCHED ACCURACY for heavy duty cuts, horizontal boring mills provide JOB FLEXIBILITY, and the five-face bridge mills offer EXCEPTIONAL CAPACITY for large parts.
