Our Contract Manufacturing News
RMI has added a Eisen S-3A II Vertical Knee Mill to its extensive list of equipment. The S-3A II features a high precision spindle with run-out under 0.00015", a MEEHANITE casting, hand scraped saddle, Turcite-B slide ways, along with power feed and digital readouts on all axis.
To better support short runs and requests for prototypes, RMI has added a Haas TM-1P Toolroom Mill to its machine shop. The mill has a 30” x 12” x 16” work envelope, a 10 station tool changer and a ridged tapping option. The intuitive programming system is a conversational operating system that allows operators to write programs without knowledge of G-Code.
Enhancing its lathe capacity, RMI has added a HAAS ST-10 High Performance Turning Center to its lathe department. The ST-10 has a maximum capacity of 14" x 14", with a 16.25" swing over the cross slide. The spindle turns to 6000 rpm, rapids at 1200 IPM and the 15 HP drive system provides 75 ft-lb of cutting torque. A Servo Bar 300 bar feeder provides for lights out automated operation on high volume orders.
Recognizing that many of our Customers in the Aerospace industry have a need for increasingly complex machined products, Ray Machine has added 5-Axis machining to its process capabilities.
The Haas TR-210 trunnion table in a VF-5 provides 5-axis simultaneous motion and positions parts to nearly any angle for multi-sided machining. The machine has a part swing of 23.5” and an A-Axis swing of 19.2” making it a perfect fit for most of the Aerospace product currently procured by our customer base.
RMI successfully completed its Stage 2 audit for AS9100 Rev C.
Ray Machine successfully completed a stage I audit with QMI-SAI Global on
8/24 for its AS9100 Rev C registration.
The Stage II audits are scheduled for October 4-7. Once complete, RMI's
Quality System will be compliant with both ISO9001 and AS9100.
Ray Machine placed an order today for an upgraded version of software for our Brown & Sharpe 7107 Global CMM. This software, PC DIMIS Cad++, gives us the capabilities to scan complex surfaces of a part and compare them to the customer supplied model, generating a graphical representation on the parts deviation from nominal.
Maintenance completed phase two of the HE lighting project. Currently 2/3 of the facilities Metal Halide fixtures have been replaced with T5HO fixtures, improving visible light while reducing our electrical costs by 60%.
RMI finishes 2010 with a 99.999% acceptance rate by their Customers. Quality assurance reported 417 PPM rejection rate in the end of year management review. This is slightly higher than the 307 PPM reported in 2009 but still well above our annual goal.
RMI adds MIL-DTL-5541 Class 1A plating tanks in support of new contracts received from Lockheed Martin and Moritz Aerospace.
RMI begins implementation of AS9100 Quality System with expected completion of June 30, 2011.
