- Fulfillment: PPAP, Kanban, JIT
Our manufacturing capabilities are well-suited to handle ferrous, non-ferrous, and plastic bar stock to produce ISO 9001: 2015 certified components that accommodate virtually every industry. With over four decades of manufacturing experience and a full-service manufacturing facility, we have the knowledge and tools necessary to supply domestic and international markets for the aerospace, automotive, electronics, fastener, firearm, and medical industries.
Complex electrical and mechanical systems in aerospace equipment need precision components and assemblies to deliver safe, reliable performance. We offer precision machining and specialty secondary and finishing processes to produce high-quality aerospace components that provide such performance even at high altitudes and temperature extremes.
Our team can machine and finish automotive components such as bushings, covers, and brake system components. We source metals from reliable sources to create high-quality parts that deliver long-term engine, brake, and general automotive performance. Our precision machining and multi-spindle machining services quickly transform workpieces into intricate, well-shaped pieces.
With the rising demand for more powerful and complex electronics, electronic components—such as electrical connectors—need to be more precise than ever before at increasingly small dimensions. To meet this demand, we use precision machining and secondary processes to manufacture precise electronic components in small and large production runs from materials such as aluminum, brass, copper, steel, and plastic.
Our broad range of precision machining capabilities can accommodate orders for virtually any type of fastener. By employing a variety of machining equipment and processes, we create high quality, high accuracy fastener products, including screws, washers, and other fasteners.
Firearm components need to be manufactured to precise and tight tolerances to ensure the safe operation of the equipment. We use highly repeatable processes to machine, treat, and finish workpieces. Combined with these manufacturing processes, carefully selected construction material translates to precise products that can safely withstand high heat and pressure.
The critical nature of medical parts and products necessitates precision and quality. Our ISO 9001:2015 certification ensures that our manufacturing processes meet the highest industry standards for quality. Our precision machining and finishing capabilities allow us to deliver high-quality medical tools, equipment components, and electronic parts.
Choosing the Right Material for Your Industrial Machined Parts
When designing a machined part, it is important to consider the construction material. The material you choose must suit the specifications of the intended application—i.e., offer the necessary strength, resistance, and other performance characteristics—and the selected machining operations—i.e., be sufficiently machinable.
Some of the most common materials manufacturers use in machining operations are aluminum, brass, copper, and stainless steel. While each of these materials is suitable for machining applications, each also offers its own manufacturing and performance advantages. Various industries employ specific materials for this reason. For example:
- In the electronic industry, electrical components use conductive materials such as copper for wiring.
- For fluid handling applications, many components, such as fitting, seals, and valves, are constructed from brass due to the material’s machinability and corrosion and heat resistance.
- Many industries, including aerospace, automotive, military, and medical, employ stainless steel for their parts as the material offers superior corrosion resistance and durability.
During the design phase, performing tests on the initial design or consulting with an experienced parts professional is essential to ensure choosing the ideal construction material for a part.
