Flint Machine Tools Inc. has partnered with JTEKT Machinery, expanding its line of CNC machines. This partnership will give the Southeast access to an innovative line of new machinery.

One popular machine is the FH5000S-i. Designed to achieve high speed and production reliability, JTEKT's FH5000 Series meets the growing demand for high metal removal rates, short cycle times and enhanced surface finishes. It features standard 60-tool ATC capacity, along with a 15,000 RPM, 50 HP (37 kW), 303 Nm (223 ft-lbs.) high acceleration spindle. Equipped with a direct drive B-axis table featuring an index time (90°) of 0.7 seconds, the FH5000's spindle design, preload system and high torque features allow manufacturers to take advantage of more aggressive, high-volume machining in a compact footprint.

Since 1990, Flint Machine Tools, Inc. has provided advanced metalworking solutions and comprehensive services for production machining, mold/die machining and production turning all over the Southeast. Flint Machine Tools offers high quality equipment to large and small manufacturing companies in industries like aerospace, automotive, medical, agricultural and power generation.
