One of the five CO2 laser systems (1,700 to 4,000 W) used to cut, trim, weld, and drill holes in parts and structures produced at Ace Precision Machining, Oconomowoc, Wis.
Multi-axis laser processing is a high-tech specialty, and a process that’s much in demand for high-value parts, but its just one of several precision manufacturing services available from Ace Precision Machining Corp., in Oconomowoc, Wis. What sets apart this one-stop contract manufacturer is the thoroughness of its laser processing capabilities, along with facility for large-scale metal joining, CNC machining, metal forming, and thermal processing.
Ace Precision presents itself as a strategic manufacturing partner for OEMs and chain suppliers in aerospace, power generation, and defense production. By doing all operations in-house, without depending on subcontractors, Ace Precision noted it reduces turnaround time on projects and eliminates issues that may occur when using a third-party supplier.)
"Almost nothing is outsourced," according to Ed Magedanz, Ace Precision senior manufacturing engineer.
"Because our facilities and trained people encompass all areas of metal forming, fabrication, and testing, the company maintains process control from start to finish,” he continued. “We work on large projects that involve prototype development over many months, before actual quantity manufacturing takes place. When the project ramp-up occurs, we are ready with the right equipment and the trained personnel to deliver as required.
“Our track record with multi-axis laser processing is a great example of how we provide all of our contract services to the benefit of our many customers," Magedanz said.
