Precision metal fabricator Pulse Systems said it has acquired additional computer numerical control (CNC) machine tools and has expanded its facilities space to accommodate the new equipment.
The recent CNC equipment acquisitions include a second Tsugami LaserSwiss machine, as well as several conventional Star Swiss screw machines, bringing to 11 the total number of CNC screw machines operated by Pulse. The Tsugami LaserSwiss machine combines the speed and precision of laser-cutting with the turning and milling capabilities of a Swiss screw machine in a single machine tool, according to the company.
“We are pleased to report that our investment in CNC Swiss machining and our implementation of the hybrid Tsugami LaserSwiss, which marries Swiss turning with our core competency in laser machining technologies, is paying off in expansion of our value-added contract manufacturing business,” said Herb Bellucci, president & CEO of Pulse Systems, in a prepared statement. “Our medical device customers are recognizing the value of these expanded service offerings, and our overall business level has been growing as a result.”
To house this additional equipment and business activities, Pulse Systems has added 7,000 square feet of facility space to its Concord, Calif. headquarters, which now comprises just over 25,000 square feet and employs 90. Pulse’s services include laser tube cutting, laser welding, CNC machining, stent manufacturing, electropolishing, nitinol shape-setting and cleanroom assembly. The company specializes in rapid turnaround of prototype parts and can support full production volumes through its ISO 13485:2016 and ISO 9001:2015 certified manufacturing operations.
A wholly owned subsidiary of United American Healthcare Corp. (OTC:UAHC), Pulse is growing rapidly, according to Bellucci.
“We are very fortunate to have built a solid team of skilled and motivated people, who view Pulse as an attractive and productive place to work, and make it possible for us to respond quickly to increasing demand from our customers,” he said.
