Here at Vista Industrial Products, Inc., we have expanded our machine shop to meet the needs of our customers. We have a large variety of different machines with different functionality. For today’s blog, we will discuss our vertical machining centers. At VIP, we have more vertical machining centers than horizontal and turning / lathe machining centers. Most of our vertical machining centers are computer numerical controlled for better precision and efficiency. We have a total of 10 vertical machining centers including one that is large capacity for large machined parts. Nine of our machines are 3-axis, while one of our machines is a 4-axis.
Vista Industrial Products, Inc. has a 5,354 square foot in-house machine shop with a wide range of machining equipment with a variety of functions. We have been able to maintain growth within our machine shop largely due to the fact that many companies are not going overseas for their machined parts. Since CNC machining is not labor intensive like sheet metal parts, it wouldn’t be beneficial to take it overseas where the labor costs are cheap. As a result, we have a large collection of machines that range from 3 and 4 axis with part capacity up to 81”x41”x32,” CNC 3D surfacing, manual mills, CNC lathes, manual lathes, and not to mention a complete quality assurance department with a CMM.
