Our process utilizes CAD/CAM subtractive manufacturing
techniques in a production sequence. Subtractive
manufacturing is a process in which bulk material is placed on
our machine and the router removes that material in a series of
steps: rough pass and finish pass. The design team utilizes
CAM software programming to control and direct the cutting
sequence of the CNC machine center providing us with a
platform to develop large parts for assembly or small on off
parts. Our machines are capable of milling 120″ on the x-axis, 180″ on the y-axis and 48″ on the z-axis. We have the capability to mill non-ferrous metals like aluminum, varieties of foam, wood, and composites.
Lights-Out Manufacturing: we build parts when our associates have gone home. Our design team has built in a quality system of digital checks and balances within the design process, Digital Design. Digital Design allows us the flexibility of manufacturing a part in our CAD/CAM software prior to the material reaching the production floor. Our Digital Design process verifies: part fabrication, tool path of the machine to avoid collisions and generates lead times. Through the digital design process, production has the ability to place parts on the machine, hit start and let the machine run all night with the peace of mind knowing there will be no collisions ae issues with the material at the end of the run cycle. Additionally, we are able to extend our capacity without the reliance on man power.
