                   Production

 

          With the use of our machining centers and turning center we have the ability to provide low to high volume production work.  The machining expertise we use ensures the most advantageous set up and tooling possible.   Also, our experience with production runs allows us to guarantee the fastest machine times possible.  Utilizing the latest in tooling design helps us stay competitive and offer the best delivery times possible. All of our machines are maintained and check routinely for accuracy, and repeatability.

 

                   Low Quantity Runs

 

          Some of our customers have asked us to manufacture components for automated machinery.  Most of the time only one or a small quantity of each item is needed.  Usually an automated machine will require a large number of different parts.  When these are manufactured it is critical to have an organized process control and manufacturing plan.  We have developed a plan that offers the most productive machine run times possible.  This allows us to help companies who build the equipment to stay on a time table so they can receive the most time sensitive parts first without pushing out the end delivery date. 

 

                  Aerospace

 

          For the past 12 years we have been supplying the aerospace industry with various electroformed components for military and commercial use.  We have produced a diverse array of products from individual components to specialized alignment tools.  Manufacturing for the aerospace industry has greatly enhanced the operation of the machining facility in traceability, job router sheets, quality control, and inspection.

 

                   Cad/Cam

 

            To meet the needs of our customers we use Autocad and CAM software to produce machine running times for quoting and writing programs.  To reduce machine down time and increase productivity we have introduced Preditor DNC software to prove out and download programs that are ready to run, eliminating prolonged set up times.
