We've had many new CNC Machinery announcements lately–as we continue to grow our business–but this newest announcement is something that we've been looking forward to for months now. If you've been keeping up with our latest blog posts, then you've had some foresight into this new addition. The KIWA Methods-KMH-1000B is one of the largest horizontal machines in our shop, to date!
What to do with a fabricated part that your usual suppliers can't make:
We all have a great supply of local cnc machining, precision fab and other manufacturing vendors that we have built trusting relationships with over the years. These vendors have been there with us through thick and thin. We have familiarity and trust that can only be built through years of demanding manufacturing challenges. Oftentimes, parts come along that are simply not suited for the average vendors. You know its a long shot but you send out these parts for quote, each of your local vendors sending back the NQ response. They say, "Jeez, Scott, you know we can't make a part like that, it is way beyond our capabilities". So now you have to go looking for a new vendor and hope they are the right fit for your part and for your business. Here are some things to look for:
Large Parts CNC Machining and Assembly:In the world of CNC Machining, Assembly and Fabrications, parts and features can range from the palm of your hand to the size of a tractor trailer and then some. Different CNC Machine Shops are suited for many different size ranges. High volume shops can produce millions of small parts in a short amount of time. But today I wanted to talk about the big stuff. Those large parts and assemblies that are not only hard to source for the OEM, but also hard to produce without all the right capabilities. Large CNC parts and assemblies create very specific problems for the manufacturer but with smart planning and good equipment, the manufacturer can provide excellent value to the OEM without causing too much pain.
