Baker Industries Adds Two Additional EMCO MECOF Powermills to Its Large-Scale Machining Arsenal

MACOMB, Mich., June 25, 2024 – Baker Industries (the “Company”), a Lincoln Electric company, today announced the purchase of two CNC machining behemoths, both EMCO MECOF Powermill HP5 gantry machining centers with Heidenhain TNC 640 HSCI controls, further enhancing its large-scale, high-precision 5-axis machining capabilities. These state-of-the-art machines join the Company’s existing
Powermill, which was purchased in 2017 and is one of the largest CNC machines in North America, solidifying the Company’s position as a leader in advanced manufacturing solutions for the aerospace, defense, automotive, energy, and shipbuilding industries.

The newly acquired machines boast significant size and capability, with axis travels of 315 x 157.5 x 59 inches (X/Y/Z). They also feature two interchangeable heads—a 6,000-rpm universal head and a 12,000-rpm high-speed head—and automatic head-changing capabilities. With these advanced features and
controls, the machines deliver precision and efficiency and can handle the most complex large-scale machining tasks.

Brian Baker, General Manager at Baker Industries, commented on the acquisition: “The addition of these two machines significantly expands our large-format machining capacity and capabilities, enabling us to provide faster turnarounds and meet the growing demands for complex machined parts and
tooling.” He continued, “This investment aligns perfectly with our strategic vision to offer comprehensive, high-precision manufacturing solutions to our customers.”

Construction began last week, and the new machines are expected to be installed and operational by year-end 2024.
