Equipment acquisitions increase capabilities

Online PR News – 20-April-2010 – – Herker Industries, a leader in precision machined parts, mechanical assemblies and contract welding, announces the acquisition of a Nakamura-Tome Super NTM3 CNC turning center, equipment that is renowned for high quality production at tremendous speed. The increased capability allows Herker to provide original equipment manufacturers with machined assemblies for end products ranging from medical devices to agricultural equipment, at highly competitive prices.

The Nakamura turning center is one of eight machines added by the company in the last three months to increase machining capabilities and capacity for manufacturing custom machined parts.
