Precision Machining

Advanced Machining utilizes best of class machining and measuring equipment to produce tooling, prototypes, and production parts. We serve leading OEM customers in a variety of demanding industries such as aerospace and defense, power generation, medical, research, automotive and others. We have experience with a wide range of quantities and material types, including high performance and exotic materials. Our staff has many years of experience and a high level of technical competency. Products and services include:

  • Prototype components – military, aerospace and commercial
  • Production manufacturing – automated machining with pallet changing
  • Dies – stamping, forming, compacting, extrusion, fine blanking
  • Hard die milling – up to 65 Rc
  • Mold cavities and cores – plastic die-cast, compression
  • EDM electrodes & special cutting tools
  • Inspection services & reverse engineering

Our equipment capabilities include:

Special Processes:

  • We have an extensive base of proven approved suppliers for materials, heat treatment, welding, plating, coatings and testing.

CAD/CAM

Advanced Machining utilizes Mastercam 3D solid modeling and CAM programming for CNC milling, turning and EDM processes. We commonly receive part drawings in the following formats: IGES, DXF, ParaSOLIDS, VDA, STEP, DWG and SAT, but can accommodate other formats as needed. We also utilize Spaceclaim Engineer to support 3D modeling.

Quality Assurance

Advanced Machining is AS9100C and ISO 9001:2008 certified. Documentation management is supported by ShopTech E2 enterprise software. Our gage blocks, surface plates and instruments are calibrated and traceable, per ISO9001:2008 requirements. Inspection systems include:
