Skilled Material bars from Boston Centerless address the challenges faced by CNC machine shops regarding the need for highly skilled operators and lowering overall cost of production. The process of CNC Swiss screw machining relies heavily on the quality of bar materials in order to run smoothly. Variations in material diameter, straightness and roundness impact the success of component manufacturing.

The reliability and consistency of Skilled Material bars removes variation at the outset, making the process much more robust and predictable, allowing for a reduction of labor input required to keep the process in control and produce good parts, the company says. Total cost savings can come in the form of reduced downtime, longer tool life, faster production times and less scrap, the company says. Skilled Material allows for machines to run unattended or lights out, further reducing costs. Simply put, Skilled Material addresses the two largest issues facing manufacturers today: Lack of skilled labor and pressure to reduce costs. Material integrity and traceability are always part of the Skilled Material process.
