MC Machinery Systems: The Company behind Mitsubishi EDM

September 13, 2016 / , Managing Editor Production Machining

Most people are familiar with the Mitsubishi EDM brand, but many do not realize that MC Machinery Systems Inc. is the company behind the brand. In fact, the Wood Dale, Illinois, company is celebrating its 25th anniversary as a U.S. subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corp. this year.

The company is responsible for selling and servicing the popular EDM brand, but it also sells and services many other types of advanced machining solutions, such as vertical machining centers; automation; advanced five-axis milling and turning; additive machining, carbon dioxide and fiber laser; and hydraulic and electric press brakes.

“We want people to know that we sell advanced technology. We are a solutions provider, our product range is vast, and we can really work with customers on finding the tool that best fits their manufacturing needs,” says Patrick Simon, marketing manager.

The proof is in the booth. Visitor’s to MC Machinery’s 10,000 square-foot Booth N-6815 can see 15 of the company’s machines, six of which feature automation. In addition to its EDM lineup is the five-axis OPS Ingersoll Eagle V5 with multi-change, light automation. This VMC has the capacity to handle a 550-pound workpiece on a 15.75-inch table surface. 

The company’s Remote 360 monitoring system, which became standard on its wire EDMs beginning April 1, also is displayed in the booth on several 70-inch TVs. “This capability allows us to reach a higher level of customer satisfaction and reduce downtime,” Simon says.

High-level employees are in the booth all week to answer questions, meet new customers and give machine presentations. The company also is conducting giveaways associated with its 25th anniversary.

While looking for the Mitsubishi EDM logo, keep your eyes open for the MC Machinery 25th anniversary logo, and prepare yourself to be pleasantly surprised by all this company offers.
