South Deerfield, MA, November 15, 2023 – Pilot Precision Products (Pilot), a manufacturer of cutting tools and a supplier of duMONT CNC motorized slotters, is teaming up with Global CNC, a manufacturer of static and driven tool holders, to offer solutions that enable efficient and stable broaching on vertical and horizontal machining centers such as those manufactured by Okuma, Mazak, DMG Mori, and more.
This collaboration allows Pilot to combine its broaching expertise with Global CNC’s knowledge of machine tool interfaces so customers using the motorized slotters can increase the versatility of their machining centers and enhance productivity.
In a recent case study (see photos) we jointly developed a right-angle head for an Okuma 2SP 2500 machine. The customer needed clearance from the spindles to access the features to be broached efficiently, with precision and stability. No one else could. We did.
When purchasing a new machine, a customer can buy a duMONT CNC slotter from Pilot Precision Products or Global CNC. When a customer purchases a duMONT CNC slotter from Global CNC, a tooling certificate associated with the slotter can be redeemed through Pilot at any time.
“We are proud that Global CNC, an innovative company with a long history of success, has chosen to partner with us to broaden the use of our motorized slotters that interface perfectly with Global CNC’s best-in-class live tooling for slotting,” says Eric Hagopian, Pilot’s CEO. “Our slotters can easily handle internal and external keyway, square, hex, and spline profiles in significantly shorter cycle times while consolidating operations in one machine and eliminating the need for secondary broaching operations. Global CNC’s extensive customer base and outstanding customer support will help us to create new opportunities that are critical to our long-term success.”
“Pilot’s quality sets the standard for excellence,” adds Anthony Davis, Co-Vice President, of Global CNC. “Although we received proposals from other manufacturers that wanted to partner with us, our testing showed that Pilot’s duMONT CNC Motorized Slotters is a perfect fit for our tool holders. Eric Hagopian and his team run a first-rate operation that manufactures indexable broaching systems offering unique capabilities for ID/OD machining and simultaneous deburring of splines, slots, keyways, squares, hexagons, and custom shapes. Global CNC’s and Pilot’s combined strengths will give the customer experience an enhancement not found anywhere else.”
