Cloeren: Increased manufacturing capacity to make wider dies

Cloeren Incorporated, USA, is investing US$5 million to increase manufacturing capacity and enhance technical capabilities. This project, already 50% complete, involves the purchase of several new machines for manufacturing extrusion dies. A new 5-axis CNC machining center with a capacity of 15 meters (590 in.) is now in production. This is the second 5-axis machining center Cloeren has installed in the past 18 months. A third 5-axis machine is planned for 2002.
A new dual spindle machine, designed to address the growing demand for internally deckled dies, is in the commissioning phase. A 10-meter (394-in.) CNC surface grinder is scheduled to be commissioned in May and will further enhance Cloeren’s position as technology leader in the wide die market.
