Machining of Critical Components

Machining of Critical ComponentsYears of planning and strategic equipment selection have provided the foundation for FM Industries, Inc., to offer flexible, state of the art machining services to meet the most demanding customer requirements. With over 65 CNC milling machines and 40 CNC lathes located in multiple manufacturing locations, FM Industries provides scalable manufacturing solutions from development to volume production. With capabilities ranging from dedicated manufacturing cells to high speed horizontal flexible manufacturing systems, our goal is to provide high quality, repeatable, cost competitive machining services to our customers.

Providing critical, complex machined components in a high mix/medium volume environment is our area of expertise. The combination of the latest technology in machining centers, industry leading CAM programming software, high speed metal removal techniques and strict process control set FM Industries apart from our competition. In house fixture and tooling development, extensive process design and partnering with our customers in Design for Manufacturability activities early in the prototype development stage drive out unnecessary cost and provide a path to reduced manufacturing costs.
