Manufacturing requires the right team and the right tools. We pride ourselves on the experience and talent of our team, and on our investment in the most reliable, precise equipment from trusted brands like Bend-Tech, O-Max, Milltronics and Haas.
The Machining Department provides full machine shop capabilities, offering waterjet technology, CNC plasma tube and pipe cutting, welding, forming, grinding, press brake, and both CNC and manual mills and lathes. We classify ourselves as a job shop that can accommodate prototyping, one piece runs, and both low and medium quantity production runs. Our toolmakers are degreed professionals proficient in autoCAD who hold extensive experience in the field. Our material capabilities include stainless steel, carbon steel, aluminum, plastic, and more. Our work may be found in industries such as nuclear, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, automotive, consumer products, general construction, glass, and general industrial. We are located in Columbia, South Carolina, but our clients operate throughout the United States.
The Fabrication Department is an experienced producer of custom components for manufacturing and stainless fabrication of food service equipment. We have waterjet and CNC plasma table cutting capability, and CNC forming to ensure accuracy and repeatability. Our engineers work very closely with our fabricators to design and build feasible solutions for the fabrication customer.
Our tube and pipe cutting capability allows us to easily mark, engrave and cut tube and pipe to make CAD/CAM designs a reality. Any design with holes and end cuts can be done on the Bend-Tech Dragon A400. The Dragon A400 marks all bending locations, rotation and degrees on the tube and can cut round, square, rectangle, angle, and channel, which sets us apart from smaller machines that only cut round.
Bend-Tech’s A400 Dragon CNC plasma tube and pipe cutter also allows for a faster process, allowing for a greater bottom line. Parts drop in a single location with the fixed toolhead, creating an efficient production workflow.
Our waterjet capability is a compliment to all facets of our business. The ability to cut a wide range of materials including steel, titanium, carbon fiber, plastic, rubber, glass, wood, stone, ceramics, composites, and more gives us a unique in-house capability that many shops our size don’t have. Our new Omax Maxiem 2040 has an overall cutting envelope of 6’ 7” x 13’ 10”, which sets us apart from the smaller 4×8 or 5×10 machines. The Z-axis travel is 12” so we can handle thick material with precision accuracy of plus or minus three thousandths; and repeatability of plus or minus one thousandths. We are very excited about this new capability and look forward to serving our existing customers in this capacity and finding new opportunity as we continue to grow.
