Precision Machining and Precision Engineering
The manufacture of any product starts at our material stores. Once sawn, these parts are then moved to the precision machining shop, where they are machined utilizing state-of-the-art, 5-sided CNC machines. Each part is machined, drilled, tapped and inspected in a single setup, which provides better accuracies and smoother production. At Hopwood Gear our precision engineers are committed to providing only the very best parts.
After 5-sided machining is complete, the product will then probably arrive at our gear cutting shop. During this process, team members perform a series of inspections, leaving nothing to chance.
We can machine virtually any process using our machinery. We are one of a few precision engineering companies to have virtually full CNC capability.
Many industries today, especially in the high-tech world of aerospace and automotive design, are turning to 5-axis machining as a means to speed manufacturing ability and increase repeatable accuracy. The ability to machine complex shapes, undercuts and difficult angles in a single setup reduces tooling cost and labor time, resulting in a better cost per part in addition to maintaining parts conformity throughout the run of the part.
Precision machining is performed throughout our facility.
