Capabilities

Our state-of-the-art facility includes Mechanical and CNC Swiss screw machines.  All tooling and programming is developed and produced in-house.  This ensures that the design and manufacturing is both high quality and cost efficient.  Whether you need a complex new product or a small part that’s been in service for decades, we can match your project with the right machine – and the right people – to get the job done on time and on budget.

  • We use only the highest quality materials.
  • In-House cam design and manufacturing ensures compliance to the strictest tolerances.
  • Shadowing technology ensures structural integrity of each and every part we manufacture.

We are large enough to engage the most challenging jobs, yet small enough to be flexible to handle the smallest of orders and prototypes. This enables us to meet all of your part needs in a variety of materials ranging from exotic medical and aerospace requirements to plastics.

 

Swiss Screw Machining Swiss Screw Machining 
Originating in Switzerland in the late 1800’s to manufacture high-volume, precision parts for the Swiss watch industry, Swiss screw machining has evolved into a precision machining technology that produces critical parts and components for many industries and applications across the globe…
CNC Swiss Screw Machining 
In recent years, the set-up intensive, mechanically complex cam operated Swiss screw machines have begun to be replaced by CNC-controlled Swiss screw machines. This has led to the development of additional capabilities for CNC Swiss screw machining, plus a reduction in the amount of time required to set-up a machine when changing from one part to another…
