Under One Roof
Process / Engineering & Design / Technical Sales
We are a total process and hardware resource for the coating industry. If you’re looking to expand your current coating equipment or have process issues, we have over 40 years of hands on experience to solve any technical issues. Something all of our competition lacks.
In-house engineering and design personal. We design and model everything using SolidWorks 3D modeling software. Our team can produce standard and or custom design layouts, sales drawings and productions models.
Our technical sales team is made up of and has process and engineering knowledge. This makes for easy and rapid response to questions or problems that come up. We are positioned throughout the world for rapid response.
We have in house, Haas CNC mill with a max capacity of 36" X 120" and additional Haas CNC mill 28” X 84”. They have proven to hold pin and hole locations to .0005" or better. Cutting edge machining practices for the best quality, fastest run times, and reduced errors due to tooling and machine failure. We use SolidCAM integrated machining for all our milling.
We have three precision surface grinders. One Okamoto grinder is a 32" X 80" capable of .0002" over 80". This grinder is perfect for all insert reworks, fluid coating die reworks, positioner parts and basic die grinding. Our other grinders are custom made to order Okamotos (a 24" X 120" EX and a 24" X 80" IQ) capable of .0002” over 120” and 80", respectively. Each grinder is on isolation pads to Okamoto specs.
Precision Inspections and Lapping
Our entire shop is climate controlled for tolerance control and isolated for cleanliness. We have a custom 4' X 8' and 4' X 12' granite rock AAA certified to .00025" over the entire surface. Inspection department includes a toolmakers Mitutoyo microscope capable of measuring lip edge radiuses from .001" to .080". Flatness scan linear gage can measure .000005" (.13 microns). A Mitutoyo micrometer height gage with a resolution of .00005"(.13 microns). A Capacitec gap sensor for measuring slot gap uniformity to .000001” (.0254 microns). The wands sizes range from .004” - .028” for preland and land gap scans. We are capable of producing detailed inspection reports with RA scans and repo impressions of top widths and radii. Hand lapping tolerance .00004” (1 micron) - .00015” (3.81 microns) up to 120”.
Lead times - Best in the industry
Our schedule for lip inserts and die reworks is approximately 5-7 days.
New coatings die < 1000mm approximately 6-8 weeks and 1000mm above is 10-12 weeks.
A new die station would be approximately 12 weeks.
