Niles Technical Application Center (NTAC)
The Niles Technical Application Center (NTAC) is a process engineering and development space at NSH USA's manufacturing facility and headquarters in Albany, New York. It's where we support current and potential customers of the NILES-SIMMONS MC-Series and N-Series CNC machining centers.
The centerpiece of the NTAC is a NILES-SIMMONS N30 MC TurnMill, a multi-axis multifunction turning-boring-milling machining center. This machine allows us to work closely with customers and perform Applications Engineering with demanding real-world workpieces. Through our partnership with Empire Dynamics, a New York-based manufacturing consulting firm, a “digital twin” of your complete NC process is created to develop a virtual turnkey solution and programming environment. Improved productivity, reduced risk, and increased reliability and safety are all benefits of digital twin technology. New processes are also developed for proving out one set-up / “closed door machining” solutions to manufacturing challenges.
The NTAC also provides opportunities for contract machining of large parts with tight tolerance requirements and complex geometry. If you currently do not have the machinery or capacity to handle a large part machining project, contact NSH USA today for your contract manufacturing needs.
