Roll-Kraft, Mentor, Ohio, has installed a vertical CNC machine at Roll-Kraft Ltd., Brampton, Ont., for additional production of tooling for the tube and pipe industry.
The machine is the eighth CNC model at the facility. Its role is to manufacture large roll tooling with a diameter up to 49 in. The company says it expects the machines to decrease the manufacturing process of the larger rolls by 50 percent because of faster setup time and the ability to use the smaller machines for other work.
