Reader Precision Adds Four Star SR10-J CNC Machines to Expanding Fleet

Reader Precision Solutions (‘RPS’ or ‘the Company’) announced the addition of four high-efficiency Star SR10-J Swiss CNC machines to its robust manufacturing arsenal of precision machining equipment and technology at its Elkhorn, WI facility, Precision Plus. This strategic acquisition is part of the Company’s ongoing commitment to excellence in advanced manufacturing, further enhancing its ability to deliver the highest-quality precision parts to clients in various industries.

The Star SR10-J machines are renowned for their speed, precision, flexibility, and reliability, making them a staple in the precision machining industry. These machines are particularly noted for their ability to compete with traditional Swiss turning machines in terms of speed across various materials and processes, their exceptional repeatability and predictability, and their user-friendly design that accommodates enhancements like quick-change tool systems and custom part collectors. 

Steve Dues, Senior Manufacturing Process Engineer at RPS, highlights the strategic significance of this investment, stating, “Our decision to double down on the SR10J platform is a testament to its proven performance and alignment with our operational needs. The SR10-J’s speed and precision have already set new benchmarks in our production, while its flexibility allows us to quickly adapt to changing job requirements with enhancements like our own custom parts collectors. Moreover, the machine’s compact footprint and reliability, demonstrated by leading uptime figures in unattended operations within our organization, ensure we continue to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations.”

The addition of the new machines not only amplifies the company’s manufacturing capabilities but also reflects the company’s dedication to adopting sustainable and efficient practices. The compact design of the Star SR10-J Swiss CNC machines enables optimal use of manufacturing space, enhancing operational efficiency and worker productivity. Many of the dedicated programs RPS runs on these machines capture 95%+ spindle-up time, 24-hours per day, 5 days per week basis.

Michael P. Reader, Vice President of Sales and Engineering, emphasized the broader impact of this addition, “Integrating more Star SR10-J Swiss CNC machines into our production line is a strategic move designed to bolster our manufacturing efficiency and product quality. This aligns perfectly with our mission to provide our current and future clients with top-tier precision machined components, leveraging the latest in technological advancements to ensure the highest levels of satisfaction.”

With this latest expansion, RPS continues to set the industry standard for quality, innovation, and customer service, reinforcing its position as a leader in precision machining solutions.
