Simmons Establishes New Technical Center

Simmons Machine Tool Corporation has announced the establishment of the Niles Technical Application Center (NTAC) at its manufacturing facility and headquarters in Albany, NY. The center will be the platform for offering Niles-Simmons machines to North American customers.

Simmons is now responsible for all product sales and support of Niles-Simmons machinery to non-automotive customers in North America for industries such as aerospace, defense, railway and machinery manufacturers.

"Niles-Simmons designs and manufactures precision CNC machining centers that are among the most advanced, reliable and versatile machine tools in the world. Our partnership under the common American ownership of the NSH Group (Niles-Simmons-Hegenscheidt) creates a natural and beneficial relationship for both companies," said a company spokesperson. "New and current customers will receive the exemplary technical support and OEM parts and service that Simmons is known for.

Simmons will feature a multi-axis multi-function turning center, the Niles-Simmons N30 MC, at its facility that will be the centerpiece of the NTAC. This machine will allow Simmons to work closely with customers and perform applications engineering with their specific workpiece. Applications development utilizing the N30 MC's turning, milling, boring, drilling and other machining process capabilities will be a priority. There will also be opportunities for contract manufacturing for large part machining customers with tight tolerance requirements.

"With this opportunity, Simmons can serve new industries such as aerospace, defense, renewable energy and many others that are emerging in the marketplace. Our heavy payload automation capabilities forged by demanding projects in the railway industry worldwide will be valuable to other industries as they seek to automate. The Niles-Simmons product line furthers our railway capabilities by offering the RQ series of wheel manufacturing machines and the N20, N30 and N40 LT machines for manufacturing new axles and maintenance operations," said Niles-Simmons Product Manager Alexander Davis.

Automotive customers will continue to be supported by its sister company, Hegenscheidt Corporation in Sterling Heights, MI.
