When it comes to near net shape geometry, no one is better than Integrated at finding its optimized 3 axis rotation. Since all of our inspections are cataloged in MetBase, we have access to aggregate data. This capability allows us to examine near net shaped geometry as the product of a process, as opposed to itself with the assumption the process is repeatable. Many times we are able find the best fit of a geometric shape within a process that will deliver an acceptable machining.
Our customers use us because we can find the proper dimensional centroid for the geometry they are trying to produce. Our data mining capability is what gets us there.
We employ the same engineering techniques when developing in house machining processes. For production processes we typically provide fixture design, fabrication, and assembly utilizing our manual machine shop.
We primarily use Vericut and Key Creator for our CAD work.
