Tighter Tolerances. Better Finishes. Design it and EDM will mill it. We offer both precision and micro milling capabilities with tight tolerances of 2-3µm even for micro machining. With a vast network of suppliers, EDM Department has access to any tool needed to meet your milling, micro milling or micro manufacturing needs. Constant development of new and improved micro milling techniques allows us to continuously offer our customers tighter tolerances and better finishes.

  • Micro Cutters down to .0010" Diameter
  • High speed micro drilling of thru and blind holes and hemispheres
  • Typical tolerances of 2-3µm
  • Finishes down to 8Ra µin (micro inch)
  • Small quantities of 1-50+ pieces
  • Production quantities up to 10,000 pieces

Throughout the nation companies, laboratories, and universities utilize our milling, micro milling & precision milling capabilities. With such a vast array of machining options to supplement our milling capabilities, we've milled components in every industry from interconnect to aerospace. However, in addition to our 20 years' experience, what really differentiates us from our competition is our ability to take on research and development projects of 1-2 pieces as well as production work up to 10,000 pieces! A few sample projects we have completed include:

  • Interconnect Components
  • Fiber Optic Components
  • Medical Components
  • Optical Lenses
  • Research & Development
  • Aerospace Industry
  • Defense Industry
  • Digital Manufacturing & Design Innovation Institute (DMDII)
  • Nationally Ranked Universities
  • Research Labs through the country, ex: SLAC national Accelerator Laboratory
