New CNC Lathe Installed at Kopp Glass

We recently installed a state-of-the-art Romi Machine Tools C 620 CNC Lathe in our mold shop. This installation is a continuation of a major capital improvement program that began over a year ago. The new lathe enables automated, precision machining of the mold parts and proprietary tools required for the production of technical glass products. The addition of this machine supports efficiency within our mold shop and reinforces our commitment to providing the highest quality products to their customers.

The addition of the new lathe will enhance Kopp’s ability to offer efficient and precise machining. Our customers can rest assured that Kopp will be able to construct tooling in a timely, accurate fashion. In addition, the lathe will provide us the opportunity to machine larger diameter parts in-house.
