Pleasurecraft Engine Group recently purchased a new CNC machine — the OKK HM6000S — which was on display at the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago from Sept. 12-17.

This OKK HM6000S is the fourth machine of its kind, plus two OKK VP400s, that Pleasurecraft Engine Group said it has purchased in less than 12 years. The machines make up Pleasurecraft’s portfolio of equipment used to machine all cast-iron and aluminum parts in-house.

Pleasurecraft Engine Group also builds all machine fixtures in-house.

“We are excited to have this additional piece of equipment as yet another tool to help drive our quality to higher levels,” Pleasurecraft Engine Group president Mark McKinney said in a statement. “We look forward to the opportunities this purchase may present in the future and the possibilities of further innovation.”
