The recent CNC equipment acquisitions include a second Tsugami LaserSwiss machine, as well as several conventional Star Swiss screw machines, bringing the total number of CNC Screw machines operated by the company to eleven. 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.
"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 and CEO of Pulse Systems. "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 a total of just over 25,000 square feet, and employs 90 personnel.
Commenting on the rapid growth of the company, Bellucci noted, "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."
