Equipment List

 

Five Axis Machining

Using Mastercam and our state of the art five and four axis CNC machining centers, we are able to take any 3D model and machine it into a finished part.

 

Welding

We are known worldwide for our proprietary welding processes, which allow us to weld all types of exotic metals in various applications.

 

Spinning

Spinning is a process that allows us to form diverse types of metal into countless shapes and sizes for almost any application. We spin parts for everything from lighting fixtures to aircraft engine cowlings.

 

Assembly

Our world class FOD free assembly area allows the skilled team to take on any size job, large or small. From wet installing rivets and nut plates to fabricating flight simulators, we've done it all.

 

Inspection Reports & Reverse Engineering

Using the latest state of the art inspection devices we are able to generate inspection reports, first article reports, and even reverse engineer the most complicated of parts. Using Mastercam and Verisurf we are “Digital Product Definition” approved so we are able to interpret and analyze any model all the way from design to part completion.
