Capabilities
Assembly
We've done everything from assembling machinery, building die sets, assembling shafts for convoluter tooling, and even small engines. We are willing to quote out assembling anything, and we discount assembling anything we machine components for.
CNC Machining
We can do a variety of part types and have a wide range of fixtures and vises for our machines and can also do parts on the VMC in multiple setups. We have 2 CNC turning centers. Both machines are 2-axis lathes, and have tailstocks for doing long bar work. We have full 4-Axis capability both on our Horizontal and Vertical Machining Center.
