January 2016

VMA manufactures and supports the Power Supply Assemblies and other electronics behind Steinway's most significant product innovation in over 70 years. We ship to both their Hamburg Germany and Astoria NY plants.

The innovation is "The Spirio"... The world's finest player piano system. It's not just a player piano... It's having the heart & soul of the artist in your living room.

The software coupled with clever mechanical engineering provides the most accurate reproduction of live performances ever achieved on any piano. Delicate pedaling, subtle phrasing, soft trills, and thundering fortissimos present no difficulty for our Steinway Spirio. 



 


 

 July 2015

VMA's sister compamy, EAW Electronic Systems, Inc., is on the verge of introducing an innovative building automation system. The new technology, called an EMC 20/20, is used to control a building's heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, and will support industry standard Communication. The prototype shown below has already evolved and is getting ready for full production.



 



November 2014

VMA ordered the Mazak VERTICAL TRAVELING COLUMN (VTC) 800/30 SR Vertical Machining Center. Delivery of the machine is planned for February, and our team is excited to offer our customers the increased capabilities and efficiencies. 



It features a high speed 40 Taper spindle, swivel spindle head (B Axis), full traveling column design and fixed table for machining of extremely long and heavy workpieces. With the optional table partition, the long machine table can be transformed into two separate work areas, with smaller and
5 axis parts run accurately and cost effectively. The Roller Gear Cam design swivel head delivers improved accuracy and repeatability due to the backlash free design, which allows the machining of complex features and contours. These features offer excellent machining capacity for a large variety of work pieces. A significant reduction of machining processes and increased productivity can be realized thanks to the additional axis, and when combined with the rotary table, full 5-axis simultaneous machining will soon be a service that VMA can provide. The machine also delivers fast rapid traverse rates to reduce non-cut times. 

MACHINE CHARACTERISTICS:

· 18,000 RPM 40 Taper Spindle
· Swivel Spindle Head (B Axis +/- 110 degrees)
· 48 Tool Magazine
· Full 5 axis contouring
· Table Center Partition-OPT
· Max Table Load 5,500 lb

VMA adds a Customer Satisfaction Survey to our website. Our customers are important to us and we like to know how we're doing. So we've just installed a very user friendly 'Customer Satisfaction Survey' to our website. We want to hear it all (good and bad), because that's how we continuously improve. 


    


 

The entire VMA management team began a Value Stream Mapping refresher course as part of our continuous improvement efforts. In our Quality Objectives, we are committed to meeting on-time delivery to our customers. Over the weeks, the team developed an up-to-date, “current state” map of our entire process flow. Then, using the current state map, we derived a future state map, which will be used to identify potential improvements and breakthrough opportunities.
