Precision CNC Turning

We have 18 CNC lathes and mills to produce parts for a variety of large companies. Our CNC lathes can fabricate parts from round or hexagonal stock from cold finished steel, stainless steel, brass, and aluminum. Complex parts can be precision machined with our precision CNC turning, CNC milling, and vertical machining centers.

We have 5 Mazak dual turns that can automatically transfer parts so that both ends are machined within the same cycle time. Contact Ashley Ward for your CNC turning and CNC milling service needs today!
