From Bolstered Performance to Enhanced Appearance Milseong Makes Peerless High-Precision Tables
CEO Mr. Lee said that tables for machine tools should not only boost their performance but also enhance their appearance perfection.
Milseong C&T CEO Ilwoo Lee stated: “The machine tool table is one of the parts that attract our attention during metal machining work. As such, not only its function but also its appearance is very important.” Milseong C&T’s machine tool table, which not only optimises both the precision location and efficient clamping of a work piece, but also enhances the appearance of the machine tool, thereby boosting the perfection of the work – has been acclaimed as a high-quality premium product in the market, despite the company being a late market entrant.
Milseong C&T Is Well-Known for Its Ability to Make Excellent Hydraulic Cylinders
After being launched under the name of Milseong Industrial Machinery in January 1993, the parts manufacturer Milseong C&T started manufacturing hydraulic cylinders, machine tools, industrial machines, automation machines, and precision parts, boosting its business power. The company eventually became a corporation under the name of Milseong C&T Co.., Ltd. in 2010, and began to take a second leap forward.
For over twenty years, Milseong has manufactured standard cylinders, industrial machines, special cylinders for steel making, precision parts, and machine tool tables etc. for Doosan Machine Tools and other domestic and foreign companies.
The company has accumulated its own know-how to achieve an excellent reputation for quality and delivery over the years, earning it a reputation as a manufacturer of top quality cylinders and other parts.
First Attempt to Diversify the Business; Making Machine Tool Tables
CEO Lee stated, “For the table, a key part of a machine tool, technology for maintaining precision despite the rapid and repetitive nature of the work, and technology for maintaining a low level of noise and great strength and precision despite high-speed traverse rates, are important. We closely analyzed various details ranging from the table’s X, Y and Z reference points to the spindle’s rotation speed, and to its feedrate, thereby identifying the optimal manufacturing conditions for our working environment.” Such efforts led to the production of high value-added tables, and led to the late market entrant Milseong’s emergence as a famous table maker.
Milseong, which operates two 5-face machining tools, including one of Doosan’s, emphasizes that the determining factor in purchasing a machine tool is, above all other considerations, its quality, followed by trust in the salespeople. CEO Lee stated, “We have to rely on the salespeople’s words before we purchase and use a machine. If a machine tool manufacturer has diverse models and options, and its salespeople give a detailed explanation of the machine standards and optional functions that are suitable for the customer’s production process and working environment, then the customer will be able to determine the scope of purchase more easily.”
Mentioning that he wanted to buyan exclusive machine tool equipped with an on-machine inspection gauge, CEO Ilwoo Lee said, “Doosan’s 5-face machining tool offers a wide choice of automated change head attachments (AAC), enabling us to perform the machining of complicated shapes, including free form machining, or to perform 5-axis machining capable of divided indexing. This enhanced our overall satisfaction with the machine.”
Milseong C&T is set to diversify its production of large precision parts, supported by the DCM among other 5-face machining tools. CEO Lee stated, “Making the most of the strengths of the 5-face machining tool, which is capable of performing a wider range of machining from large-parts machining to medium-size high-precision parts, we want to produce beds and columns for machine tools, and parts for shipbuilding and aircraft. By using the 5-face
machining and 3-dimensional machining, we aim to diversify our production of precision parts.”
CEO Lee disclosed his ambition to expand his company’s domestic and overseas export markets to become a global medium and large-size precision parts maker.
