What level of part complexity can you handle?
What are your machining capabilities?
What materials do you machine?
What is your machining size envelope?
Prismatic (milling) up to 24” X 24” X 29” (Think: matchbox to shoebox)
Cylindrical (turning) up to 16” diameter X 19” length (Think: marble to volleyball.)
What is your monthly output capacity?
What production volumes do you typically run?
What is your typical lead time (ARO?)
We provide expedited lead times from FAI through production. Our standard lead time is 4 weeks or less, contingent on production volume, part complexity, and FAI approval.
Generally, part reruns (minus revision updates) can be accelerated.
What is your quoting turnaround time?
Typically, quotes are processed within 24 hours or less.
What are your reporting capabilities?
We provide custom reporting based on each customer’s unique quality requirements. This includes full material certification, COC (Certificate of Conformance) and completion of customer QAP’s or internal conformance checklists.
What risk management strategies do you employ?
We employ a “Noah’s Ark” risk management strategy for redundancy to ensure production schedules are not affected by machine maintenance. Contingencies are also employed to hedge against external factors.
What secondary operations and finishes do you provide?
Our qualified, NADCAP Certified supply chain handle most aerospace and defense-grade secondary operations and finishes. Please ask for details on specific processes.
We also work with designated secondary suppliers by request.
How do you communicate and approach program management?
Our program management strategy reflects the unique requirements of the customer team and program. Status updates, reporting, and technical communication best practices are generally agreed upon in advance and developed over the lifecycle of the program.
Our project management team are available from 06:00 to 22:00 EST Mon-Fri.
Do you use additive manufacturing?
Yes. We produce 3D parts for form-fit-function tests or, more commonly, for twinned QC fixtures to align to our customer’s in-house quality systems.
Can you provide customer references?
Yes. References from leading OE and Prime customers can be provided on request.
