Precision Machining


Geater utilizes a wide variety of machining equipment designed for both speed and accuracy. Through robust processes Geater is able to provide production orders, short lead time parts and prototyping all in the same environment. This is accomplished by incorporating zero point fixturing into all set ups. Geater is able to go from set up to set up and job to job quickly and accurately. Geater's state of art FMS cell allows us to maintain the highest accuracy and repeatability without any repeat set ups.

Technology


Geater recently put into production, a Mazak Dual Horizontal, 32 pallet, 500 mm FMS system. Each machine features a 330 tool bee hive complete with Cyber Tool management.  The 18,000 rpm spindles help minimize time in cut, enabling us to provide both low volume and high volume production work with no set up. The machine repeatability coupled with an integrated CMM, ensures we produce a quality part each time.  We have seen a 20% increase in production due to the increased spindle speeds and lightening fast tool changes.  In addition, this system provides superior demand flexibility and minimizes finished goods inventory by producing a “single piece flow” system which reduces costs to Geater and subsequently to our customers.

This center has increased Geater’s capacity by 15,000 hours annually and the Sail/Mast auto scheduling software allows flexibility in scheduling by allowing “hot jobs” to be given priority at the push of a button while long running jobs can be scheduled to run in a lights out environment.

Geater also offers very short lead times for prototype and small volume production work, by maintaining dedicated machining and sheet metal fabrication cells, by engineering process control into everything we do.

Protocell


Geater's prototype cell is a one of a kind cell dedicated to providing world class workmanship with industry leading turnaround times. Operators not only run the equipment, they are able to do CNC programming and also have CAD software to check parts to customer supplied models, all within the confines of this unique and efficient cell. Geater has 4th axis rotary machining capabilities which enables performance of a variety of complex machining operations without removing the part from the machine.
