McKenney Machine & Tool Co., established in 1980, is located in Central Maine and is a full-service machine shop facility with state-of-the-art CNC turning and milling centers. They offer high-quality products for, but not limited to, the following markets: material-handling equipment manufactures, aftermarket automotive, firearms and valve manufacturers.
To achieve the most efficient CNC machining operations, they realized that they needed a powerful and affordable CAD-CAM product to run their 3, 4 and 5 Axis machines. Ross Palmer, a programming engineer for McKenney’s variety of products, explains: “Our biggest problem before BobCAD was the lack of 3D forming software. Jobs with any type of surface milling were problematic when it came to machining,” says Palmer.
BobCAD’s CAD-CAM software allowed McKenney Machine & Tool Co. to expand their machining horizons, paving the way for more productivity and profitability. “Our first job we bought BobCAD for was significant. That part had a lot of surface milling, but we didn’t have any software capable of producing code for it. We purchased BobCAD, programmed and machined the part to spec, and the rest is history now. BobCAD is our one and only programming software,” says Palmer.
It’s not just the software that the folks at McKenney Machine & Tool Co. really appreciate, it’s the service. “First and foremost, BobCAD is an incredible value. The support team is great to work with as well. Most of all, we like the continual improvement that BobCAD strives for, the drive to never stop improving and innovating is greatly appreciated. After all, no matter what the process or problem may be in any industry, there is always room for improvement… you just have to find it,” says Palmer. Well said.
