South Bend Form Tool Precision Machining Services

  • CNC Vertical Machining delivers repeated finished components at a faster production rate with optimum manufacturing accuracy
     
  • CNC Turning has a higher level of dimensional control and tolerance in every piece, along with part consistency for uniformity and decreasing cycle times for all components produced
     
  • Laser marking is used to maintain the surface integrity, while laser marking material coloration is dependent upon the material being marked. It leaves little or no tactile feel on the marked surface
     
  • Wire EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) produces complex parts and precision components
     
  • Surface Grinding is regarded as a high-quality precision process and will leave a smooth, linear surface finish, typically within a 16 - 32 RMS
