At Tooling and Assembly Solutions, we process large and
small projects, with the idea that all projects get the same delicate care in
planning and processing. This is because we realize that being the best at
machining has little to do with meeting a dimension even up +/- .0001” but more
about our commitment to the customer and the parts we are fabricating. This
thought keeps us a level above the competition in all areas. Our staff works the
process not the part to ensure the part will come out correct.
It’s for this reason we make every effort to eliminate
error with a thorough process and understanding of the customers needs.
Starting with the design or analysis of a design, we
systematically go through technical drawings looking for flaws and
inconsistencies that will show up later and could potentially be costly to
repair. Using SolidWorks, accompanied by Cosmos F.E.A., we can analyze
components size, interference, material application, and geometry to add a
second level of manufacturing experience onto the process.
From this point, the parts are streamed into Mastercam
where we begin the fabrication process.
From Mastercam to Machine, each part is analyzed as to the
most effective tool path and cutting tools to do the job in a cost effective,
yet precision manner. Some machine shops tend to think steel is steel, but we
understand the cost and time loss in a part with a chip or burr in an un-welcome
place. Tooling considerations are also dealt with at this time.
Into the HAAS CNC Machining Centers and the parts are on
their way to becoming their intended shape.
After each part is machined, it is carefully inspected with
internal measuring equipment or out sourced to hi-end Coordinate Measurement
Systems or Laser inspection when required.
As parts are assembled, consideration is taken as to how
well things are going together and what changes can be made to improve the
fits. If any changes are required, each is clearly documented on the original
drawing and the process for that piece begins again.
Our philosophy is simple, look at the details and adjust
your process to make sure the end result is customer satisfaction
Once parts and assembly’s are complete we will make all
efforts to support our customers where as required. An example of this could be
anything from installation of a piece of equipment; to troubleshooting a process
problem with your manufacturing staff; or even on site repairs and maintenance of
existing machinery and tooling.
