|New Machinist Calculators from Calculated Industries Increase Productivity, Profits||9/16/2010|
CARSON CITY, Nev. - Calculated Industries, maker of the award-winning Construction Master® calculators, has developed two new handheld calculators specifically designed for machinists. The Machinist Calc and Machinist Calc Pro are built for efficiency-minded machinists, setters, tool-and-die makers, supervisors and shop owners in small to mid-sized machine shops who want to increase shop productivity and profits in the design, layout and set-up stages of production.
The Machinist Calcs are dedicated handheld machining math and reference tools that provide a complete assortment of essential machine shop solutions and time-saving tap and drill charts that can dramatically increase users' calculating power, eliminate wasted steps and reduce costly machine-tool wear.
Mark Paulsen, vice president of marketing for Calculated Industries, says the company's market research showed the need for a better machinist's calculator. "In many ways they're based on things we've already done with other trade calculators, but these are very specific to machinists. One shop owner we talked to said he'd get a Pro model for his office and the standard model for all the guys on the floor. It's just such a quick and easy way to check, or re-check, the many numbers, calculations and look-ups machinists are concerned about without having to consult charts, books or computers."
The Machinist Calc (Model 4086) comes with a hard plastic slide cover and is priced at $49.95. The Machinist Calc Pro (Model 4087) comes with a shock resistant Armadillo Gear case and is priced at $79.95. For more information, call 1-800-854-8075 or visit www.calculated.com.
