Symmetrix Attending CAMX 2014 in Orlando, FLSymmetrix Tooling
A manufacturer of complex shapes and surfaces for innovative composite craftsmen, Symmetrix Composite Tooling will be introducing its new 30,000 sq ft facility, including the new 86’ CMS 5-Axis CNC Machine and 100’ spray booth.
Symmetrix Composite Tooling will be debuting its new CMS Poseidon 5-axis CNC machine at the Composites & Advanced Materials Expo (CAMX), in Orlando, FL from October 14-15, 2014. The new machine, installed in Symmetrix’s newly expanded Bristol, RI facility, has a work envelope of 26m x 6.2m x 3m, with accuracies tighter than a millimeter. CMS worked with Symmetrix to meticulously install the machine, starting with building preparations in June of 2014, continuing through installation and calibration, finishing in August. By the first week of September, the new machine was fully functional and cutting new tooling.
“The Poseidon is built for large machining projects, never compromising rigidity or stability and reaching large work envelop sizes,” says Jack Faas, Application/Programming Manager for CMS NA. “Symmetrix’s machine was calibrated and certified to an overall volumetric tolerance of 0.1mm.”
As the machine was being installed, the Symmetrix team was constructing a 100’ spray booth. The booth is climate controlled and fully ventilated as well as dividable for work on multiple jobs at a time. This will allow Symmetrix to work with various materials without compromising quality or safety.
“The new Symmetrix facility is by anyone’s measure, ‘state of the art’,” says John Barnitt, president of Symmetrix Composite Tooling. “At 40,000sqf, our space facilitates the newest and most sophisticated CMS 5 axis milling machining for advanced composites. We are able to offer large-envelope opportunities without compromising accuracy. Supported by a talented workforce of skilled craftsman and a climate controlled spay booth, Symmetrix is in a great position to meet the advanced needs of our customers.”
