According to Jim Cepican, MCC sales manager, the synergy between the product lines enhances their capability to offer their customers better manufacturing solutions  He elaborated on the company’s success and said their Swiss-type turning centers have become the most widely accepted of their kind in North America.

To meet customer needs effectively the Marubeni Technical Center provides a variety of engineered accessories that enhance the performance of the Cincom and Miyano machines. An example of these engineered products is the L2000 fiber optic laser systems that can be adapted to the Cincom and Miyano machines.
