  CAPABILITIES:

CAD/CAM

       Using a high end CAD/CAM software package from Cimatron technologies we are capable of handling the simplest to the most complex projects .  This software enables us to machine an unlimited number of surfaces in one tool path. Our system translates:  IGES, DXF, DWG, SAT, Step, PRO-E  .NEU, and SLA files.  There is no special file preparation on your part, just output the file and send it.

 

       File transfers can be done via E-Mail, A private FTP site set up on our server for you, or your FTP site. Direct PC modem to modem connections work as well.

 

ENGINEERING PROTOTYPES

       Using a number of methods we are able to produce engineering prototypes using your CAD data files, sketches, or blueprints. The product can be machined out of  your choice of material;  plastic, composite, metal, forging, castings, etc.  We can also machine an existing product or SLA part in need of modifications.

 

INJECTION  MOLDS

       We build fast turn prototyping tools to production tooling. Our specialty is fast turn around aluminum tooling to produce several hundred parts for testing or premarket sales. We have built tools for consumer goods, medical, and aerospace. 

       If you have a product to test and are not sure if you should go to fast turn tooling, preproduction tooling, production tooling,  or machined from raw stock, we are happy to advise the best method for your project.

 

INJECTION  MOLD DESIGN

       We are capable of designing a wide variety of tools.

 

INJECTION  MOLDING

In house we have:

 28 ton, 1.5 Oz, horizontal / vertical Alburg allrounder production injection molding machine. Capable of parting line injection and overmolding.

 20 ton Morgan vertical injection molding machine. ( Excellent for very small parts and over molding of cables)

 

       If you have a job that is too large for our press we can still build the mold and then subcontract the injection molding to a shop that has a press large enough to do the job.

 

PRODUCTION RUNS

       We do both short and long production runs. High tolerance parts are not a problem. All types of materials welcome.

 

 

ENGINEERING DRAWINGS AND 3D CAD FILES

       Using your simple drawings or existing parts, we can create a set of engineering drawings (blue prints) for patent or manufacturing purposes. We can also create a full 3D CAD model for you.
