The shop has more than 75 CNC machine tools in its Three Rivers, Michigan, facility that are well-suited for prototypes, tooling, low to medium volume production runs and specialty production runs. This includes advanced equipment such as HMCs, five-axis machines, turn/mills and a uni- versal grinding machine. Many of these are fitted with features such as touch probes, tool setting probes, quick-change fixturing, magnetic chucks, high-pressure through-tool coolant delivery and collision avoidance systems. Founded in 1976, XL Machine began as a quality, prototype machine shop. Today, this core function is paired with a more complete, large- capacity production facility. The shop believes its ability to invest in new technology continues to provide the leading-edge capabilities necessary to distinguish itself from its competitors.
