Our quality management system is certified to AS 9003 standard.
We are registered with the United States Department of State DDTC (ITAR Part 122).
The following services are a few examples of what we offer our customers:
Commercial and Aerospace Machining
Our CNC turning department is comprised of two Okuma and one Doosan four-axis lathes. We have bar feeding capacity to 1.75 inch diameter and chucking capacity to 12.75 inch diameter. Many parts can be produced by performing two operations simultaneously on these four-axis two-turrett machines.
Our welding department is capable of precision weldments made of aluminum, stainless steel, and carbon steel.
Our mechanical assembly department is capable of tasks as simple as helicoil installation or as complex as a 200-piece-precision assembly. This ability allows us to supply our customers with a complete product. We can purchase raw castings, supply finished machined parts, purchase required hardware, and deliver a complete assembly. Some of our more complex assemblies include:
Our inspection department has a complete assortment of manual inspection tools plus a Starrett HGC Coordinate Measuring Machine. All tools are calibrated on a regular scheduled basis and the standards used for calibration are traceable to NITS. For many years, we have complied with the requirements of Mil-I 45208. We are currently moving towards ISO 9001 conformance.
We work with several CAD formats, e.g.: IGES, DXF, STEP, and Parasolid. We have a wide range of CNC and manually operated mills and lathes. Our CNC equipment is programmed with SurfCAM along with NC Verify software. In addition to a state-of-the-art Starrett coordinate measuring machine, our inspection department is comprised of a large variety of manual inspection tools and gauges. The same quality and attention to detail is given to motorcycle work as to the Space Shuttle - whether the customer is NASA, Lockheed Martin, or a motorcycle owner.
We offer pick-up and delivery of both parts and drawings for our customers in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. We accept approved purchase orders, VISA and MasterCard as means of payment.
