Temco 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.
As the manufacturing industry continues to advance, the need for skilled workers increases. The demand for machinists, programmers, and operators is growing at a rate higher than people receiving degrees to fill those positions. It is estimated that in 2025 there will be 2 million unfilled skilled job openings in industry, compared to the 300,000 today. Continue reading
In 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.
At Temco Tool, we pride ourselves in our state of the art 28,000 sq. ft. machining facility where not only do we have some of the most advanced CNC equipment on the market, but provide an excellent work environment for our employees. Over the years we have developed our production area into a modern, clean, worker friendly shop environment. We believe that the quality of the work environment is reflected in the workmanship and quality of parts machined. With the latest equipment and a clean, modern, technology driven production floor, Temco Tool is truly not “your father’s shop”. Continue reading
As 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”
With the large number of machine shops today, ranging from single manned operations to massive production floors, it can be difficult to select the shop that will be the perfect fit for your needs. When looking for a company to machine your parts, here are 7 questions to ask.
One advantage to machining your parts through Temco Tool is our use of Enterprise Resource Planning software, or ERP. So, what is ERP, and should you always look for this software in your machining service?
At Temco Tool, we use the latest machining technology with a wide range of capabilities to meet your needs. Our manufacturing floor operates 3-9 axis milling, lathes, grinding, two types of EDM technology, and state of the art metrology. With these machines, we produce intricate parts in the most efficient and accurate way. Our capabilities allow us to develop your part from prototype to production for the most precise of jobs. In this post we will discuss types of metal cutting used at Temco, focusing on lathe and axis machining.
