Temco Tool Building ExpansionTemco Tool continues to make progress with the new building expansion. The frame is now closed-in and work on the interior is beginning. Expected completion is currently set to the end of May.

Temco Tool, Manchester NHTemc o Tool’s 21,000 sq. ft. expansion is starting to take shape. The new building’s frame will be closed in by the end of this February and occupied by June. Our new space will create an additional 14,000 sq. ft. for production precision machining.

temco-tool-expansionWe have recently begun our building expansion at Temco Tool that will add 21,000 sq. ft. to our existing space – 14,000 sq. ft. of which will be dedicated to production. The entire production area will be temperature controlled and seamlessly integrate with our current building. The remaining floor space will house production support (including deburring and assembly) as well as a new cafeteria, conference rooms, office space, and an elevator.

The structure is scheduled for February completion with internal completion by spring or early summer. Once the expansion is finished, we will begin purchasing additional equipment for our facility.

Temco Tool FacilityTemco Tool is about to start an expansion project that will increase our manufacturing facility by approximately 16,000 square-feet and create 20-30 new jobs when fully utilized. The increased demand from our core customers as well as several new opportunities has spurred this expansion. We have simply run out of room in our current building, fortunately our piece of land allows room for an expansion to the existing plant. The plans and permitting phase is nearing completion, and we are hoping to have the building up and externally complete by fall. Our new space will allow us to produce parts in higher volume with shorter lead time, while supporting our current long term contracts without interruption.

edm machiningIn today’s high tech industry, the complexity of designs and the composition of base materials is often beyond the capabilities of traditional machining. This is where our EDM machines step in with electrical discharge cutting methods to produce incredibly precise, burr-free components for the most demanding of applications. The ability to cut extremely hard materials with precision and no cutter induced residual stresses has proven to be an attractive option for today’s aerospace market.

We offer three variations of EDM machining, depending on your application and needs.

QC-2As machining capabilities continue to improve and become more precise, it is vital that quality control systems keep up. This is particularly true in the Aerospace and defense industries where verification of conformance and traceability are a must.

All quality assurance processes, when working for the world’s most demanding industries such as aerospace, medical, and more, need to verify that each machined component meets the technical requirements as well as full traceability of feature chararitics such as:

  • True position
  • GD & T form controls such as parallel, perpendicular, and profile.
  • Surface roughness characteristics such as Ra, Rz, Rt, Rq, Ry, and more…
  • Final dimensional verification down to .0001”
