Mantel Machine Products has invested in 2 new machines in 2022 to solve the issue of replacing our older 6 spindle screw machines due to skilled labor shortages. The LICO LND42S and LND51S have been great assets to our company, by increasing our throughput and decreasing our lead-times by finishing parts in one operation.
In order to remain competitive with price and delivery producing custom machined products and to adjust to the skilled labor shortage, Mantel has continued its commitment to our lights out program.
The lights out program now features eight machines, two LICO’s, 42D and 51D with live tooling and sub spindle, six Hanwha Swiss machines ranging 12mm-32mm. Each machine is equipped to run 24 hours a day without anyone on site. Doing more with less has been Mantel’s philosophy since its founding in 1951.
We look forward to see what the future of technology brings us to continue our commitment to efficiency.
Resec Sorting System
Mantel Machine understands the increasing demands of the industries we serve and is committed to providing high quality at an affordable cost. We have recently purchased a Resec Systems Digital Shadow Gage to allow for 100% inspection on jobs with strict requirements. This will save on cost of production, and provide high-quality parts to print specifications for our customers. We look forward to utilizing this machine and develop other ways for it to add value to our process.
Mantel Machine Part Delivery
We understand the tight schedules buyers face in today’s markets, so besides striving to keep our prices low and our quality high, we offer free part delivery to our customers in the Metro-Milwaukee area.

New Hanwha Swiss Machine
Mantel Machine has just purchased their 2nd Hanwha Swiss machine. Like the first one, the second is equipped with live tooling for cross drilling and tapping, off-center face drilling, and milling. It also has the Sub-spindle for picking off and back working. In addition to everything that the first one has, we made the decision to tool this one up with high-pressure coolant, angled head drilling attachment, and chip conveyor. Our first Hanwha has a max capacity of 20mm. For this one, we upgraded to a 35mm machine. It really opens the door to a wider variety of parts that can run through it. Having the ability to pick-up operations that would have otherwise been secondary, and the high quality work that these machines put out, will keep Mantel Machine Products on the cutting edge in machining precision parts.
