Professional Relationships With a Human Touch
You’re a real person, and so are we. Too many people want to reduce business relationships to endless forms, revision approvals, specifications, and other stuff that gets in the way of actually making things, and getting them to market. Agility is critical in today’s fast paced manufacturing industry and our human touch, gives you a competitive advantage.
Built In Capacity and Reliability
When smaller shops take on big jobs there’s always the risk that a single piece of equipment with no backup could fail, or an employee who’s role hasn’t been cross-trained will get sick or quit. Those kind of occasional, but inevitable events might cause you to miss your deadlines. Advanced Metal Fabrication and Machine, Inc. is a large shop with extensive multi-functional and redundant equipment. We have a highly skilled workforce trained in many disciplines.
Left to their own devices, the only thing the most advanced machine and fabrication tools will do is rust. It’s the people that produce what comes out of our shop, and we’re proud of our team. We’ve grown a family of skilled workers here who can be happy to put their names on the things they do. We’re a quality and speed focused shop and our people know that what we do needs to be done right.
Materials Handling Done Right
Proper material storage, organization and handling are essential for any well-run shop. We store our materials inside our temperature controlled warehouse, sorted on well labeled racks; Where we keep track of the certification documentation for those materials. We move our materials efficiently with forklifts, gantries and carts.
Automatic loading and removal of materials, finished products, and byproducts ensure fast, efficient production, reduce the possibility of errors. Materials are transported from station to station efficiently with designated carts, and as needed, custom cradling and support tools (which we make in-house.)
Do you need a prototype manufactured? We offer complete prototype development services. Our extensive manufacturing experience informs our prototyping process so that when we design, or fabricate your prototypes you end up with something that can be produced within budget, and specification.
Packing and Shipping
“Looks like it was damaged in shipping” Isn’t what you want to hear. The shipping of precision items can be fraught with difficulties. We can build custom packaging for your larger parts to ensure they are well protected during transport and arrive in good condition. For large production runs, durable, reusable packing allows items to be safely shipped as they are finished and can provide better protection and reduce overall costs when compared to disposable packaging which may be more difficult to use, and expensive on a per-shipment basis.
In today’s agile on-demand marketplace, having a manufacturing partner who can make-to-order and ship directly to your customers, can be a huge advantage, eliminating the need for warehousing and internal shipping. We can produce items as required and send them directly where they need to go with your documentation.
As a result of our diverse production experience we have developed an in-depth knowledge in regards to manufacturing methods and their various advantages. It’s not enough to have made many individual things, making one thing inefficiently isn’t usually a big deal. But when you need 500 of something it’s important to optimize the process. We can apply our knowledge of efficient production methods to your projects to fill your order efficiently.
Design For Manufacturing
Sometimes, by making changes to the design, manufacturing costs and turnaround times can be dramatically reduced without impacting functionality. Our customers often work with us to refine their designs for streamlined manufacturing, combining multiple operations into a single step, reducing the number of components and materials, and eliminating waste.
