What to Look for In a Precision Manufacturer

July 17, 2018

You may not know they are there…and you certainly wont always see them, but precision
components are all around us in our every day lives. Almost every industry in the world today
relies on small components that make a big difference in their profitability. Not every
manufacturer is equal though. What should you look for to ensure you get high quality
components you can depend on? Here are just a few things we suggest:

Project Flexibility
A good precision manufacturer should have a wide range of in house flexibility. Not only should
you look for different machining options to accommodate different types of projects, there
should also be a team of skilled employees who have the background, training and skillset to
work with your needs. Not every customer requires the same experience – the best shops
customize their process to work with you for the best results.

High Quality Materials
This is not the place to cut corners. Starting with the best possible material has a huge impact
on the end result. For reliable components that will withstand the test of time, choosing the
right raw material for the job will make all the difference. We aren’t just talking quality though.
Some materials work better for specific applications. A knowledgeable precision machining
team will be able to guide you through your choices.

Speed and Efficiency
One of the major benefits of precision machining is the speed of the process while still
maintaining a very high level of accuracy. At On Time Precision Components, we do our best to
finish projects by the quoted date or even earlier when possible…that’s why ‘On Time’ is in our
name! Speed doesn’t have to mean a sacrifice in quality. It comes from a team of experienced
workers who are trained to get the job done right the first time!

Quality Control
While CNC machining offers precise products…nothing can be perfect 100% of the time. Proper
testing and quality control methods ensure errors are always caught and corrected and the best
products are being created.

Customer Communication
Nothing is more frustrating than asking a company a question and waiting forever for a reply.
When you are trusting a manufacturer to create products that directly effect your bottom line,
you want assurance that everything is being made to your specifications. Quick communication
that is straight forward and easy to understand is the best way to ensure everyone is happy
with the process and the product.

machining capabilities to produce superior machined products that will help your business
