Lights Out Manufacturing

Y-Tec utilizes CNC milling machines that employ broken tool detection and live (in the spindle) probing.

This technology allows us to operate these machines, on the appropriate products, in an unmanned mode. We are able to load fixtures with assets / raw material, assign a priority, set the cycle in process, and allow the machine to run unattended.

The machine can self-inspect, make the appropriate adjustments as programmed, and produce parts.

The advantages regarding machine utilization, and reduction in throughput time and cost, are obvious.
