What is the SIMO™ machine?

June 21, 2011 - Rockford, IL  -  Posted by Zach Olson

If you are a regular browser of our website, you have probably seen some references to the SIMO™ process. To save time and space, we quickly summarize it as a proprietary process that ensures precision machined extrusions with incredibly tight tolerances that are consistent throughout the length of the rail. Sounds great, right? But what does all that mean to the design engineer?SIMO

  1. What does SIMO™ stand for? Simultaneous Integral Milling Operation
  2. How does it work? SIMO uses multiple cutters and mills in a synchronized operation to machine an extrusion in one quick pass; eliminating hours of painstaking cutting /machining that other extruding processes would require.
  3. What makes this great? The SIMO has been shown to hold tolerances of ± 0.001’’/0.025mm throughout the length of the rail. This provides the engineer with an extremely accurate length product and ensures quick installation and alignment.
