Our Happy Customers
These are the fastest skiving machines I’ve experienced. The team at Sierra is truly top rate, they truly practice what they preach putting customer’s first, and providing exceptional support during the life of their machines.
Our company, Hyco Alabama LLC, purchased our first Sierra Machinery Skive & Roller Burnishing Machine for our shop in 1992. Sierra’s product literature states that their machine is the “world’s fastest skiving and burnishing machine”. The skive heads that Sierra USA have developed utilize a single pass feature for skiving and burnishing tubes. This feature, in conjunction with cutting speeds that can exceed 120 inches per minute, do indeed make this a true statement.
When we first began developing a product line that would incorporate this type of process, we noted that one feature that separated Sierra USA from other manufacturers was that Sierra not only builds the machine, but they also manufacture the skive and burnishing heads. If we ever have a question regarding the operation of the machine or troubleshooting an issue, this eliminates the runaround you can get if different companies are involved in making a process operate smoothly.
While the machine that we purchased in 1992 is still operational, we have purchased a second Sierra USA Skive & Burnishing Machine to help increase our production capability at Hyco Alabama LLC. The Sierra USA Skive and Burnishing machine is certainly a very valuable asset to our facility.
