PRECISION MACHINING

SMALL BATCH AND COST BENEFITS

Altek customers benefit from reduced inventory costs and the luxury of placing lower volume orders for small batch, mixed lot production. We incorporate a variety of metal CNC machining services for configure-to-order work cells and can quickly produce a broad range of machined parts with varying requirements. 

Flexibility and Adaptiveness

Altek customers benefit from increased productivity and end product consistency, as well as a reduction in lead times with Altek precision machining services.

 

We meet even the most demanding precision machining needs with a full-service machining shop that operates 24 hours a day. Our horizontal milling centers are linked to a flexible manufacturing system (FMS) with multiple automated linear pallets that provide the flexibility to adapt to specific scheduling requirements. Repetitive setups are eliminated and jobs are automatically staged while the machines are running.

Whether your precision machining services include turning, CNC milling, or screw machining, Altek incorporates full production capabilities into our linear precision machining process providing cost optimization, flexibility and faster delivery.
