CMZ and METAL PERFORMERS, the beginnings

The company has grown exponentially in recent times and that is why they have required a heavy investment in machinery. This is where CMZ has become an important ally for them.

They came to us through a new employee who came from a company where they worked with our CNC lathes. His experience had been so satisfactory that, when Metal needed to acquire new CNC lathes, he did not hesitate to recommend our machines. Historically, Metal had always worked with Okuma but thanks to this positive experience they did not hesitate to buy CMZ lathes.

CMZ Lathes in Metal Performers

Strong and precise, this is how Javier Vasco, Application Technician in Metal Performers defines the CMZ lathes. For him there are several advantages that our lathes present in comparison to other machines. The main advantages that they find in their manufacturing process:

  • Turret control with the potentiometers.
  • Control of breakage of tools by CMZ
  • Automatic correction with frames, own development of IPM.
  • Does not generate vibrations.

But for him, undoubtedly, the main advantage to highlight is its high precision. If you turn off the machines on a Friday and turn them on Monday, the first part that comes out is a right part. For them that is crucial, they work at the hundredth and any deviation affects the process and their productivity.

The future

At CMZ, the experiences of our clients matter to us. We work every day to become strategic partners in their production processes. The background race undertaken in 2016 with Metal Performers, we hope that it will be the beginning of a long road.
