What is it?
Conventional machining is the method of choice for many jobs. Hand operated machines can be used to mill and turn many designs. Each machine is equipped with a digital position readout with a resolution of at least 0.0005" (0.0127 mm). Using these digital scales and precision tooling and fixturing, our manual machines hold tolerances on the order of +/- 0.001" (0.0254 mm).
Auxiliary equipment for preparatory work include a cutoff saw, vertical band saw. In addition to chip-making, we also carry out several other traditional metalworking tasks, such as arc welding, brazing, heat treating, and light forming.
What can it do?
The abilities of a conventional machine are highly dependent on the skills of the operator. Using special fixtures and tooling, our machinists are capable of completing many advanced tasks using these machines.
