Stillion Industries Welcomes New Machines to the Family

Stillion Industries made a major change on March 25th, 2022 when we sold our Mac turn and replaced it with a Space turn.  This smaller machine is more versatile for our needs and freed up a large amount of much-needed area on the floor for new machines to come to our shop.  Now in May, we are excited to announce 3 new machines that have joined the Stillion Industries arsenal!  The Devlieg Spiralmatic Jigmil 4B-72 Boring Mill now stands tall in our shop ready to take on any job we can hoist onto it!  The Monarch Model 612 lathe which has the capacity for pieces 128 inches long and a 31 inch swing.  One of our Employees who came to us from Pinnacle Engineering when they closed, shared his history with these machines including running a 2 ½ ton roller on this machine!  We’ve also added to our Bridgeport collection the Series 1. It took us about 3 weeks, but we have 2 of these machines up and running now.  The Boring Mill was used just today to do final work on one of our Electro Arc table tops.  In the future, we will be able to do all of the work our table tops need! These new machines provide a larger capacity for big jobs. We are also now able to do jobs in-house that we would have outsourced in the past including work on cast iron table tops for our Electro Arc metal disintegrators.

We’re celebrating dual anniversaries in 2022!
