Precision Machining

Our ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100 certified, ITAR-compliant facility is stocked with advanced CNC machining equipment, such as horizontal and vertical machining centers, which enables us to offer a range of precision machining services to customers across a diverse set of industries. Our capabilities include: 

  • Boring
  • Counterboring
  • Countersinking
  • Drilling
  • Lapping
  • Milling
  • Tapping

We can produce metal and non-metal components up to 24 inches long x 24 inches wide x 12 inches high to tolerances as tight as ±.001 inches (±.0254 millimeters). Our production capacities range from prototype to high-volume production quantities. Typical production lead times are about six weeks, depending on the project. 

In addition to our machining capabilities, we offer a variety of in-house value-added services to improve the appearance and functionality of the components we deliver to customers, such as:

Sheet Metal Fabrication

We provide sheet metal fabrication services to customers in various industries, ranging from defense to medical to lighting. By using modern high-speed multitool equipment, such as laser cutting machines, punch-laser machines, and punch presses, we can produce various fabricated sheet metal parts and products from coil and sheet materials. Our sheet metal fabrication capabilities include: 

  • Shearing
  • Punching
  • Laser cutting
  • Notching
  • Forming and bending
  • Extruding
  • Louvers
  • Lances
  • Graining
  • Grinding
  • Deburring
  • Sand blasting

We can fabricate components to tight tolerances, depending on the needs of the customer. For example, we can achieve bend tolerances and hole-to-hole tolerances of ±.005 inches, hole-to-edge tolerances of ±.010 inches, and hole-to-bend tolerances of ±.015 inches. Our production capacities range from prototype to high-volume production quantities. Typical production lead times are about four weeks, depending on the project.

Our material thickness capabilities range from .015 to .187 inches. Some of the material we regularly use include: 

  • Aluminum
  • Brass
  • Copper
  • Galvanized sheet metal
  • Hot rolled/cold rolled steel
  • Stainless steel

Laser Cutting

The precision laser cutting process enables us to produce custom components for a variety of industries and applications. Our advanced laser cutters are equipped with turbine-driven, RF-excited, fast axial flow CO2 lasers, which combine precision cutting with high cutting speeds. The equipment can achieve maximum output power of 2,500 watts, resulting in efficient processing with excellent position accuracy.(±.005 inches) and repeatability (±.005 inches).

Our laser cutting capabilities include: 

  • Cutting thickness: Up to .250 inches
  • Cutting length: Up to 100 inches
  • Cutting width: Up to 48 inches
  • Cutting height: Up to .250 inches
  • Production volume: Prototype to high-volume production quantities

We can laser cut the following materials: 

  • Aluminum
  • Ferrous metals
  • Stainless steel
  • Steel
  • Thin metal

Custom Form-in-Place Gaskets

Our form-in-place liquid deposition capabilities enable us to produce custom gaskets with excellent durability, electrical performance, and thermal performance. For these projects, we use a 3-axis CNC robot to deposit silicone in the exact patterns and quantities needed. By leveraging these robotic liquid dispensers, we achieve rapid deposition without sacrificing precision. Our robots can place beads as small as .030 inches x .030 inches to tolerances of ± .003 inches on bead width and ±.005 inches on location. Combined with high-performance silicone-based polymers, these precise application techniques allow us to create intricate gaskets that resist corrosion and provide lasting protection from EMI.

Custom Box Build

In addition to our manufacturing and finishing services, we also provide skilled assembly solutions. From part fabrication to final assembly, our experts can manage the entire project. 

Our specialization is electromechanical assemblies. We can handle individual components, such as boards, brackets, cable wiring and harnesses, chassis, fans, and power supplies. We can also deliver complete assembled products, such as box builds and enclosures.
