Established in 1937, IMPCO developed and introduced the first ‘automated’ crankshaft microfinishing machine in 1948 that polished main and pin bearings on an 8-cylinder automotive crankshaft. Since then, the company, through its internal R&D department, has engaged in continuous product development to ensure its microfinishing (superfinishing) solutions improve customer product quality and functionality in every application.
Our industry leading Worldstar series of machines allow consistent process generation from one component to the next. Our ergonomic design for operators makes way for efficient tool and tape changes from a single location at the front of the machine. Integral with every machine is the IMPCO know-how on Microfinishing process and continued investment into the technology.
Our state of the art Research and Development facility allows process development on components utilizing standard and optimized cutting media. Our ability to generate functional surfaces on key component features, allows the process to be evaluated and optimized efficiently. We have the ability to create process either for limited productions runs or higher volumes.
