Flex Machine Tools and Capital Machine share similar core values. Service is a backbone for both companies and is the key to success. Capital Machine’s service department consists of nearly 30 members, including 24 field service engineers strategically placed throughout the 12-state region. With more boots on the ground, Flex customers will reach a service engineer faster than ever before. 

“Our Mission is to surround ourselves with great people in order to achieve our vision, and Capital Machine is a great example,” said Nick Kennedy, President, and CEO of Flex Machine Tools. “They’re a great team to surround ourselves with, so we’re partnering to continue our mutual success and the success of our customers. They have an excellent service team, and that is a pillar here at Flex which is another huge reason we decided to do the partnership.

Capital Machine will help Flex fill the void and capitalize in a previously underutilized territory. “This partnership will help achieve our vision by getting our products out to more people and eliminating obscurity,” said Nick Kennedy. ” It’s exciting to see that and ultimately get our machine tool technology into more customer’s facilities, helping them save both time and money.”

Auto Stand-Off – This is currently defined to be surface stand-off and not to be confused with vector stand-off in 5-axis mode. The current auto stand-off is based on a changing surface and will adjust vertically based on the angle of the “A” Axis, so there is five (5) axis taken into account during the calculations, but this is not the same as the tool vector stand-off. There is the ability to do the vector stand-off change while the machine is running manually with buttons on the screen.

Z-Reader Probe – The Z-Reader is a device for mapping the location of the surface. It can be controlled manually & programmatically. The option is NOT active while cutting & is retracted out of harm’s way. It can be triggered to verify the surface at every pierce before the cutting process starts, or it could be used to drive surface mapping of the whole part before cutting starts. It begins with initialization or zeroing of the device to the surface at the beginning of a program and then accumulates or tracks the difference from that zeroing effort.

Automatic Edge Finder – The edge finder is or can be utilized manually (Jogging Method & Screen Buttons), programmatically (M & G codes), or fully automatic routine (dedicated program). This option sets offsets & program rotation to match the orientation & location on the cutting table.

AC Unit Installed on Electrical Cabinet – The unit is mounted on the cabinet’s High Power (480v) side. It is close to the location where the drives are mounted. This option keeps the cabinet temperature stable and allows heat dissipation faster. The servo drives for all axes are the most significant contributors to heat inside the electrical cabinet.

5-Axis Renishaw CalibrationThe calibration unit is a Renishaw model APCA45 with a modified spherical stylus. The device has a retractable cover and air purge to clear debris & dust during the activation process. It mounts to a swing arm controlled by a pneumatic rotary, so it is out of the way during regular operation and swings into the calibration position for calibration only.
