CNC Swiss Machining Services For Complete Custom Parts
A good customer-supplier relationship is integral to the output of quality custom parts. Our industry experience empowers us to create lean production processes that save you time and money. In addition to our machining capabilities, we offer a variety of CNC Swiss machining services to make your parts complete. We provide suggestions for design development as it relates to the production process, whether it is selecting the right metal, achieving consistent tolerances, improvements in speed to market, or streamlining work processes to reduce total product cost. See our automotive industry case study as an example.
We have a variety of metals, including exotics, in stock for many different product applications, and offer finishing processes to shorten lead time and increase part performance. Our materials are RoHS/DFARS Compliant and sourced in the United States. All additional CNC Swiss machining services, whether in-house or outsourced, conform to ISO 9001:2015 quality certification requirements. Our goal is providing excellent customer service for increased satisfaction.
We offer CNC Swiss machining services to any industry whose parts’ dimensions are within our capabilities.
Common industries served:
Automotive, Aerospace, Electronics, Hydraulic, Medical, and R/F Microwave
- Stainless Steels
- Cold Rolled Steel
- Exotic Material – Nitronic, Inconel, Hastelloy, Titanium, etc.
Kanban Delivery– In Japanese, Kanban means signboard or billboard. In a manufacturing setting, it is a visual system to keep track of orders in real time. We use a computer tracking system that displays each stage of the order process or WIP (work in progress) from initial production to shipping.
- Focuses on continuous delivery
- Minimizes WIP inventory to reduce waste and increase efficiency
- Exposures problems immediately to find solutions and decrease lead time
- Optimizes customer service
Laser Marking– Industries such as Aerospace, Medical, Military, and Automotive may require codes, logos, text and serial numbers on their completed parts.
Anodizing– An electrochemical process that thickens and toughens the metal while remaining somewhat porous in case secondary applications such as coloring, or lubricity acids are required. The batch anodizing method submerges the parts in an acid electrolyte bath while electrical currents discharge throughout the tank. The most commonly anodized metals are aluminum and aluminum alloys. Titanium and other exotic metals are used as well. This unique hardening method is useful for electrical applications.
Passivation– The passivation process is effective in preventing corrosion on stainless steel products and can be critical to the part’s performance. Passivation involves a two-step procedure to remove surface contamination from the machining process. First, the part is cleaned and then subsequently immersed in an acid bath. We maintain a clean shop environment to eliminate undesirable settings that can affect individual metal properties and ultimately part performance.
Electropolishing – It is a method used to deburr, polish and passivate intricate metal surfaces that do not respond well to other methods. This electrochemical process involves submerging parts in an electrolyte solution while discharging electrical currents. Typical applications include the removal of iron from stainless steel while enhancing the chromium/nickel content for superior surface smoothness. This process makes products such as medical surgical devices easier to sterilize.
Heat-treating– We offer in-house heat-treating for parts that require hardening or softening for optimal performance. Heat treating can involve heating or chilling metal alloys to achieve hardness, strength, toughness, ductility and elasticity in components to meet the desired industry requirements. Common anodized metals include aluminum, for strength in aerospace and military components, stainless steel in medical and aerospace products and brass and copper for use in the electronics industry.
Plating– Depending on a part’s intended application, we can provide plating services with an array of materials for your finished product. Plating is a critical component in modern technical processes to enhance product performance.
- Tin – The abundant availability of tin makes it a very cost-effective alternative to other plating metals, and it is highly resistant to corrosion.
- Copper– Copper electroplating is highly conductive and offers improved adhesion for electronic components.
- Zinc– Like tin, it is readily available which makes it an inexpensive plating option. Zinc plating is useful to resist corrosion on nuts, bolts, and screws.
- Nickel– Used as a base, nickel is durable and is applied before precious metal plating to increase wear resistance and decrease corrosion.
- Gold– Its use in electronic products such as electrical connectors can increase conductivity and prevent corrosion.
- Silver– Silver with high electrical and thermal conductivity is often substituted for gold to keep costs low and to decrease corrosion and increase strength. Options include a bright or matte finish.
- Palladium– With comparable corrosion resistance to gold, Palladium costs less and is lighter.
Custom Packaging – We use a variety of packaging options to protect the surface and temperature requirements of your completed parts.
