Doing whatever it takes to get the job done

St. Paul, MN (March 19, 2020) – Dial Machine Company’s 16,000-square-foot Andalusia facility is equipped with the latest machining technologies, including the Matsuura VX-1000 Vertical Machining Center.

The company specializes in Precision CNC Turning & Milling and has been providing custom machined components to various industries for fifty years.

Dial Machine is capable of producing prototype lot sizes as well as small to medium precision CNC Turning & Milling production runs.

With part quality vitally important to Dial Machine Company’s business, they recently began the search to add a vertical machining center to their shop. They found their fit with the Matsuura VX-1000 Vertical Machining Center.

Dial Machine Company is well known for their excellent quality control, competitive pricing and dependable customer service. They found the right fit with Matsuura.

The large capacity, high-performance vertical machining center is delivering exceptional quality and performance for the company.

Beginning in 1965, the company was founded by Anthony M. Giordano. Mr. Giordano’s sons, Michael and John, also joined their father in the family business in 1985. Michael Giordano serves as President and Co-Owner, while John Giordano is Vice President and Co-Owner.

Their business philosophy is simple, “Whatever it takes to get the job done and make the customer happy.” That business mindset is what sets the fully-equipped contract manufacturing company apart from their competitors.

“The part quality and machining finishes are far superior and so much better than what we made before. The VX-1000 is very clean and sleek looking, and the footprint doesn’t take up a lot of space,” said Michael Giordano.

The Matsuura VX-1000 Vertical Machining Center provides Dial Machine Company with the latest, state-of-the-art technology which is unsurpassed in accuracy, speed and rigidity.

Accuracy in machining complex parts is another enormously important necessity for Dial Machine Company’s business. “We shut the VX-1000 off at night; turn it back on in the morning and the part is exactly the same,” Giordano said.

Yet another selling point of the machine was the tool magazine capacity and the Fourth Axis Rotary Table.

“We needed a 40 pocket tool changer, so the availability of a 60 pocket tool changer sealed the deal for us. And with the multiple fixturing, tool change, and spindle speed, we have seen a 35% decrease in cycle time,” Giordano said.

The Matsuura VX-1000 is a large capacity, tough and robust, high-value, high-performance vertical machining center delivering exceptional quality and performance, and having the latest, state-of-the-art technology, unsurpassed in accuracy, speed and rigidity.
