Located in Chino, California. RPM RC Products specializes in making high performance parts for Radio Controlled Vehicle Industry. Established in 1974 by Richard Royall as a plastic mold making and injection molding facility of precision molded parts. In the mid 80's RPM began designing parts for the R/C industry using the same precision techniques. RPM likes to keep control of the design and quality of its R/C parts by producing every component of the injection mold process in-house. An accurate, easy to use, reliable, precision CNC machine for carbon electrode machining is an integral part of RPM's in-house mold producing shop.
Atticus Overbay, RPM's CNC programmer and machinist, says that RPM purchased this Sharnoa new in 1987. This machine is very stout and produces excellent finishes while holding tight tolerances. Over the years as RPM grew into 3D machining for mold making the original control could not keep up. After putting up with the slow (point to point) Sharnoa control for a while, it started to have electrical problems so Atticus gave Doug Laursen of Machines in Motion a call to have a New Centroid M400 CNC control installed. Doug used to work for Sharnoa many years ago, after Sharnoa went out of business, Doug became a Centroid dealer/installer and has sold over 400 Centroid control systems. Machines in Motion is located in Chino Hills, California.
