PMPA Technical Member Gosiger High Volume Finds Success in Customer Support and Offering a Niche Product Line
More than 90 years ago, Clarence H. Gosiger founded the C. H. Gosiger Machinery Company in Dayton, Ohio. Today, the business is still family owned and has evolved to become a leading supplier and servicer of CNC machines and manufacturing technology.
Gosigerfest Open House is Glimpse into CNC Market
Attending Gosiger Automation’s Gosigerfest open house was an insightful glimpse into the available CNC machines on the market and the companies that make them.
Robotic Cell Cuts Cycle Time, Improves Part Quality
Sew-Eurodrive Inc. worked with Okuma America’s authorized systems dealer to design an automated cell that includes an automatic magazine bar feeder that loads 6-ft. lengths of barstock into the machine. The shop also switched to an Okuma twin spindle, twin turret turning center so all of the machining operations are completed in one setup.
Reducing Production Times with Robotic Automation
A complete overhaul of its processes using lean principles helped this shop improve production by almost 90 percent.
Automation for Your Machine Shop
A free white paper from Gosiger Automation discusses the reasons that metalworking manufacturers from small CNC shops to large-scale operations benefit from automating many machining functions.
White Papers for Aerospace Machining
Two white papers from machine tool distributor and automation integrator Gosiger Inc. explain the capabilities required of CNC machine shops that wish to enter the aerospace market.
Checklist for Lights-Out Manufacturing
Many shops of various sizes are trying to hop on the lights-out bandwagon. This article looks at some things to consider and check out before “hopping.”
Cleaning Parts Cost Effectively
A shop should look at all aspects of the production process to maximize productivity. This includes selecting an efficient cleaning system.
Merging Turning and Automation
Hardinge Inc. recently demonstrated automated production of hydraulic spool valve housings on its T51 MSY SP Super-Precision turning center.
3D Monitoring and Part Verification
Using verification software provided by its machine tool supplier, this shop proves out parts well before any cutting takes place.
Parts Cleaning in a Vacuum
While not glamorous, cleaning is a necessity for quality parts production. This supplier provides a solution to many of the issues shops face for fast, effective and environmentally friendly parts cleaning.
Technical Member Profile: Gosiger Import
Gosiger Import, a division of Gosiger Inc., markets precision machining equipment to manufacturers throughout the United States. The company’s three principal lines are Euroturn multi-spindle automatic screw machines, Nomura CNC Swiss turning centers and BTB flexible, rotary transfer machines.
With strong roots solving manufacturing issues in Europe, rotary transfer machine technology is finding justification solving similar issues in North America. It’s still not for everybody, but increasingly, with technological advances in capability and flexibility, it may make more sense for shops on this side of the pond.
Using CNC On Cam Multis
Much buzz around the industry is focused on how best to apply CNC in multispindle screw machine shops. Some advocate total commitment to the technology, while others believe a mixture of mechanical and electronic actuation is the ticket. We visited multispindle builder Euroturn to see how it decides what an appropriate level of CNC and mechanical actuation is.
