Complex Precision Machining Services

5 axis om2

Superior Joining Technologies, Inc.has state-of-the-art machine tools, tooling and software. But expensive equipment won't make a chip without skilled personnel controlling the process. Our employees have many years of experience with broad knowledge of many industries, combined with deep skills in our areas of specialization. Our guys are so good that Superior Joining Technologies, Inc.  is the company the machine tool dealers hire to develop a process for their turnkey sales.

Superior Joining technologies, Inc. also serves as a test and demo facility for machine tool manufacturers and cutting tool companies. They often request tours of our facility with potential customers to show efficient and Full 5 axis and multi-axis precision machining means Superior Joining Technologies, Inc. has NC controlled rotation of the spindle (B axis) and table (C axis). This enables us to: Our customers rely on our knowledge and experience to make their projects run smoothly, on time and on budget. We can often provide suggestions to improve their process or part manufacturability, yielding faster cycle times and improving part quality. effective use of equipment.

Superior Joining Technologies, Inc. is in a unique position to help you with your toughest jobs. We have thorough knowledge of Autodesk’s PowerMILL machining software to write the most effective toolpath. We have been working with DMG to push our machines to their full capabilities. Together, we have developed an efficient, accurate and cost-effective process that delivers superior results. Even for parts that could be machined on a 3-axis machine tool, multi-axis machining can be more cost effective by saving time on set up, fixturing and benching. 

Give us a call, and send us your work. We know we can help you deliver it faster. You win new business, keep existing customers and stay profitable.

Aerospace Parts Machining

Superior Joining Technologies, Inc. uses all of the advantages of 5 axis machining to produce high quality precision machined aerospace parts. Increased speed and superior surface finish are achieved with fewer setups. Complex or ruled surfaces can be machined in one pass, speeding delivery. Compound angle holes and undercuts can be cut quickly and accurately. Using an integrated automated pallet system, we can use unattended machining even on high precision complex parts. 

Working with your engineering staff, we can machine a functional prototype from a wide variety of materials to meet your design specifications. When the prototype has been developed and approved, we can use the knowledge, fixturing and machining strategies used to make the prototype to produce your part at a very reasonable cost. As required, we can utilize our extensive NADCAP supply chain for heat treating, plating, painting, and other required processes and finishes.
