2012 - The current 30,000 square foot manufacturing facility employs 48 with over 35 state-of-the-art CNC machine tools.
Royal Machine & Tool Corporation's management and associates recently celebrated over 60 years in business and celebrated the company's recently introduced products and services, including a new Universal Valve Fixture, which is designed to provide greater flexibility in covering a large range of valve bodies with a single fixture. The company has also introduced a new Solid Works 3-D software upgrade designed to permit 3-D dimensional viewing and clearer definition of workholding products and work areas; new larger size power chucks in sizes ranging up to 84" in diameter for power or manual operations and rotating/non-rotating applications; new manual VTL chucks to provide close tolerance capabilities required in machining of thin-walled products and a new hydraulic QVC fixture designed to provide up to 50% more production improvement and more consistent gripping forces for high volume production applications.
During the past three years the company has also expanded its manufacturing capabilities with the addition of a 1,200 square foot building to its 30,000 square foot corporate headquarters and manufacturing facilities. Plus, it has invested in five new pieces of equipment for its turning, milling and quality departments in order to expand its capacity and machining capabilities.
Richard J. Ruscio, Royal Machine & Tool President and son of its late founder, John L. Ruscio, said, "In the future, the combination of our recently added new services and equipment and our 60 years of experience in designing and building custom and standard workholding devices will make us even stronger in providing our customers quality finished products and time-sensitive deliveries."
