Datron Neo+, 40,000 RPM!

Mecha has grown so much in recent years that we have run out of physical space in our building for new equipment. We needed to find a high performance, compact machine to help meet customer demand until we can find a new building. After much research, we decided that the Datron Neo+ was a perfect…

New Laser Cutter – Trotec Speedy 360

In the past, Mecha outsourced any type of laser engraving requirement. We recently purchased a Trotec Speedy 360 to bring that process in-house. This has allowed us to shorten our lead-times reduce costs, and control quality better than ever with associated parts. We’re finding all kinds of other uses for the laser as well. It…

New CMM – Keyence KM-T1200

Mecha added a new CMM recently. The Keyence KM-T1200 uses a touch probe system with software that makes it really easy to set up a new program. Once the program is completed, the operator simply follows the on-screen photos that show where to touch the part for a measurement. This addition to Mecha’s inspection arsenal…

Safety First!

Machining can be very dangerous. Sometimes parts can be ripped out of a vise during drilling or milling, causing significant damage.

Taking The Right Route

At Mecha, our manufacturing process consists of multiple phases or “routing steps” as we call them.  Just a few examples of these “routing steps” are anything from cutting  up the raw material that gets machined, a machining operation itself,  or machined parts getting plated or painted.  The picture above shows parts that have finished  a…

Crash Landing…

Although we are precision CNC machining experts here at Mecha Inc., even we experience our share of challenges from time to time during the manufacturing process.  Take for example this crash that we encountered on our vaunted UMC-750SS earlier today.  Of course we will get to the bottom of it right away, then move on,  without…
