AUTOMOTIVE MANUFACTURING & MACHINING

AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY SERVICES

The automotive industry encompasses more than simply automobiles, it also includes the machines to build them, maintain them, and repair them. We machine the parts that these machines require to build maintain and repair vehicles.

The automotive industry is one of the largest industries in the world. There are millions of cars sold every year, and every car requires very specific parts. Some of these parts are even unique to a particular make and model, requiring manufacturers to have small runs of certain parts made for the machines they use. Many prototype pieces are needed in order to test new models before they are made available to the public so we are able make the machine pieces necessary that the industry uses to build those prototype car projects.

TYPICAL FIELDS OF APPLICATION

Our services can be applied in a number of different ways to the automotive industry.

icon

Air Flow & Fuel Valves

Our EDM services can create airflow and fuel valves that are very precise and exact. These holes will be perfectly symmetrical and burr-free.

Produce Prototypes Rapidly

Rapid Prototyping

The Automotive industry is always improving and creating prototype vehicles. Our rapid prototyping services can assist in creating the machining parts necessary for automobile manufacturers to build these special prototype parts.

icon

Basic Parts

While basic parts may sound basic, many of them actually require very careful manufacturing. Large runs of these parts need to be identical in all ways.

BENEFITS FOR AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY

We offer many benefits to our clients in the automotive industry.

icon

Unique Parts

We can handle fairly small runs of parts that are unique to certain makes and models.

icon

Mold Fabrication

For parts that are easier and cheaper to mold instead of cut, we can create molds that will last for thousands of uses or more. These molds allow machined parts to be made to spec over and over again with exact uniformity.

Precise Finish

Precision Cuts

Our machines can very precisely cut and finish pieces down to very small measurements. Exact measurements are often required in the automotive field.

Wire EDM is Not Just for Tooling

Jan 30, 2017

You can think of wire EDM as the non-contact, 21st Century version of the fretsaw. A fretsaw is used to cut complex shapes from blocks of wood. The key to its versatility is the blade, which is essentially just an abrasive wire. Being thin and able to cut on all sides, the woodworker can turn it easily to follow…

Say “medical device manufacturing” and most people think of investment cast hip joints and replacement patellas. The reality is, medical devices range from, as the FDA says, “…tongue depressors and bedpans to … pacemakers … and laser surgical devices.” Some of these devices need electro-discharge machining (EDM) for their manufacture while many more need EDM…
