New Feature-Added Blanks

from TCI Precision Metals provide customers near-net Machine-Ready Blanks that include one or more features. This allows customers to get right the high-value process of finish machining without tying up resources internally to remove large amounts of material.

from TCI Precision Metals provide customers near-net Machine-Ready Blanks that include one or more features. Feature-Added Blanks eliminates the need for material prep and can include drill, bore, turn, mill, rough and hog out features as specified.

"Taking our concept of Machine-Ready Blanks one step further, Feature-Added Blanks provide customers with excellent gains in productivity, while saving wear and tear on their machining centers inflected by removing large amounts of material," said Ben Belzer, President of TCI Precision Metals. "Customers receive precision Feature-Added Blanks that are ready to go directly from receiving into their CNC machining centers, which removes bottlenecks and allows the customer to focus on the high-value service of finish machining."

TCI Precision Metals is a wholesale, Machine-Ready Metals Distributor for Alcoa, Kaiser and Hulamin Aluminum, including 6061, 2024 or 7075 aluminum plate and sheet, stainless steel plate and several other alloys, stocking over 500,000 lbs. of material for quick turn-around on customer requirements.

"The difference between TCI Precision Metals and other metals distributors is, TCI adds value to every order shipped, making the material Machine-Ready. Specialized equipment is used to cut, grind, mill, flatten and straighten material much more efficiently than most shops can do it on site," said a company spokesperson.

"Each blank arrives deburred, clean and to customer specifications - guaranteed as close as +/- .0005 inch dimensionally and as close as .0002-inch flatness, squareness and parallelism," said the spokesperson. "Customers can use the time they previously spent on material prep, hog outs or roughing operations for more productive use of CNC machining centers, increasing productivity and throughput."
