“Takumi machining centers have been prevalent in Europe and Asia for 30 years,” said Joe Braun, vice president of marketing and product management for the Takumi brand. “However, the brand hadn’t been introduced to the North American market. To be successful, we knew we needed to open a local service and support center here in Indianapolis in addition to a showroom.”

The Takumi CNC machines are equipped with FANUC controls with three machine categories: the double column H-Series machines are high-speed, high-performance machines designed for the mold market and aerospace industry; the VC-Series includes high-precision CNC machining centers with fast rapids; and the V-Series are heavy-duty box way CNC machines.
