Architectural metals fabricator Gamco Corp. recently invested in and installed a new CNC machining center.

Gamco CNC Machining CenterThe new equipment uses CAD drawings directly from Gamco’s design and engineering team to machine linear aluminum components used in its storefront and curtainwall framing systems, entrance doors, canopy systems and other custom metal and fenestration products.

The machining center operates on three axes to drill, notch, rout and machine non-round tubular or flat stock aluminum up to 12-feet wide. Once programmed with a design, the computer controlled equipment can machine components identically and repeatedly. The equipment is manufactured by JIH-I Machinery Co. of Taiwan.

“Gamco’s new CNC machining equipment has transformed our custom fabrication operations, expanded our capabilities and improved efficiency,” says Davidson Chen, Gamco’s sales manager.
