Exacting. Repeatable. Reliable.

Our capabilities include tolerances ranging from millionths to thousandths and low micro surface finishes to exacting standards. We utilize state-of-the-art precision manufacturing equipment. Our competitive advantage is our knowledgeable staff paired with state-of-the-art technology, which maintains stability in our multi-axis processes and our ability to complete complex parts in one step with little or no operator intervention. We are able to maximize yield, costs, and speed to market. With more multi-axis machines than most competitors, our machining capabilities include 5, 7, 9, and 11 axis machining, CNC turning, EDM, Swiss, and tool grinding. Based on customer demand, we will reconfigure standard equipment to leverage one-piece flow methodology. We have the technology to perform and are able to deliver complete per print with even the most challenging specifications.
