HELLER Machine Tools formed a partnership with TITANS of CNC, Inc. The key points of the agreement include a cooperation in machining technology, process, and practical application. TITANS of CNC will install two 5-axis machining centers into their Texas facility. The HF 5500 with the fifth axis in the workpiece and the CP 6000 with the fifth axis in the tool – and a Round Pallet Storage System. These machines will be pushed and tested by Titan and his team. With the HELLER machines, Titan will deliver innovative and educational materials to the machining industry, sharing the true vision of what is possible.
“This information is free to the public and will enable entrepreneurs to utilize this training to improve their bottom line and will ultimately help to build up the industry, one shop at a time,” explains HELLER Machine Tools LP CEO Kenneth Goodin. “Together, we can reshape and revitalize the industry and truly impact people’s lives.”
Companies in the machining industry for decades have experienced the ups and downs.
“Unfortunately, the importance of manufacturing in the US has been downplayed and even neglected,” adds Goodin. “Many large companies stopped investing in their people, in training, and in innovative technologies and have focused on outsourcing to the lowest cost possible. This meant moving work offshore to lower cost countries, leaving US machine shops in difficult and sometimes impossible situations.”
Titan’s mission is keenly focused on the empowering benefits of education to revitalize the machining industry. Keys to success are to not accept “the way we always have done things”, but to test the limits and discover new and better ways to drive profitability.
“This is an industry-changing opportunity for us to show the world what the highest levels of manufacturing look like. No one else is opening their doors to show this top level of machining. In the US shops keep their doors tightly shut to protect what they believe is their competitive advantage, we’re here to blow our doors wide open and show EXACTLY how to compete,” says Titan Gilroy, CEO of TITANS of CNC. “HELLER represents the highest level of productivity in our industry, and fits in perfectly with our mission. With growing supply chain issues, we will intimately teach companies exactly how to out-compete the competition by manufacturing their own parts in-house. This new partnership allows us to showcase and teach the entire manufacturing process using the same machines currently being used by the largest OEMs in the world.”
