Custom engineering services are a long-held tradition at Setco. From our inception in 1912, we have delivered custom engineering to our customers. Every OEM that desires to differentiate themselves in a competitive market, can benefit by having Setco custom engineer spindles, slides, and other products to give them a competitive advantage. By offering customized solutions, manufacturers can provide their customers machine tools that improve the performance and efficiency of their operations.
One area where custom engineering services can be particularly beneficial is in the design and development of spindles for unique or specialized applications. For example, a manufacturer might collaborate with a customer to create a spindle that is optimized for use in a high-speed milling application or in a harsh environment with extreme temperatures or contaminants. By leveraging Setco’s engineering expertise and experience, the manufacturer can design a machine tool that is tailored to the specific demands of the application, providing improved reliability, performance, and durability.
Another area where custom engineering services can be useful is in the modification or retrofitting of existing spindles. In some cases, a customer may have a spindle that is not performing optimally but does not want to invest in a completely new unit. By working with Setco engineers to identify the root cause of the performance issues, the customer can benefit from a customized solution that addresses the specific problem and improves spindle performance.
Ultimately, custom engineering services can help machine tool manufacturers differentiate themselves in a crowded market, provide added value to their customers, and improve their own profitability. By leveraging Setco’s engineering expertise, these manufacturers can create spindles that meet the unique needs of their customers.
