CPP Expands Manufacturing Capabilities

CPP is constantly expanding and improving, so we can deliver higher quality parts at a lower cost to you. Recently, we purchased a new HAAS SL-10 CNC High-Performance Turning Center. This 5,500 lbs behemoth, with a 12-tool turret and over 1,000 tools, can be programmed to automatically manufacture a wide variety of products.

On the front end we’ve added a Servo Bar 300 to help boost productivity and streamline the turning operations. This servo-drive bar feeder runs directly from the SL-10’s computerized control center, making it the only “smart” bar feeder on the market.

On the back end, we have a Chip Conveyor for high-production work using harder materials (such as tool steel or cast iron). This belt-type conveyor clears chips from the machine’s interior and discharges them into a standard 55-gallon (208 liter) drum.

All in all, it makes for a very fast and efficient system, which means you benefit where the rubber meets the road: quality and price. Check out our video on its delivery, installation and operation, just go to our video page on our web site.

CPP & the Lakers: Both #1

The CPP team works hard and plays hard, just like their favorite teams!

Last Thursday the gang piled into the living room of one of our top sales guys to watch the Lakers play. Chips, dips, drinks and quips flew about the festive atmosphere as the Lakers played superb defense at Staples Centers, and Kobe Bryant scored a finals career-record 40 points, 18 in the first half and 18 more in the third quarter.

Two great teams, Two great winners.
