hyperMILL does a good turn for Altec Engineering

Date Added 01/04/2016

Altec Engineering CNC currently has 3 seats of hyperMILL with a fourth on order. With two programmers in the subcontract division working a single shift to keep pace with 15 machine tools and 28 machinists working over two shifts, the additional seat will be accompanied by a new programmer to be promoted from the shop floor.

As the epitome of subcontract production, the Altec machine shop produces anything from 1 to 20 off batches of complex parts from materials that range from aluminium and stainless steel through to most exotic materials.

With anything from 200 to 500 individual parts produced each month, our efficienciencies can be attributed to a combination of the expertise of our  programmers, and the programming speed of hyperMILL.
