The Job Shop environment requires that we must be prepared to meet our customer’s needs on a moments notice with an inventory of machine shop parts. To enable our personnel to respond quickly we have built a very large inventory of Machine Stock and Support Tooling as well as to develop healthy relationships with our material vendors.
We prepare ourselves for the job shop environment by having material on hand that matches our customers most common requirements. By doing so, we can offer three things to our customers. The first is quicker turnaround. With material immediately available, we circumvent the lead time associated with shipping material in. This also allows us to reduce the overall cost to the customer. By purchasing alike material, we are able to get reduced rates as well as amortize the shipping costs over several lengths of stock. In some cases we have material specifically manufactured to meet the customer’s material manufacturing process and alloy requirements. We have seen that our customers require finished parts to be machined from material that is not readily available from the steel supply industry. We have identified these types that are commonly requested and team up with our vendors to have this material made especially for these projects.
When applicable we provide material that is DFARS compliant and in most cases made on our soil in the United States of America. We can also provide any testing required on the material from something as simple as Chemical and Mechanical testing to more complex testing like X-Ray Florescence. We are continually adding to our inventory list in order to meet the ever changing needs of our customers.
We stock 1022 in various sizes from 6.00”Ø up to 13.00”Ø. This is manufactured according to ASTM A29 Chemistry and we include mechanical test results for informational purposes.
We stock 1045 in various sizes from 4.00”Ø up to 13.00”Ø. This is manufactured according to ASTM A576 Chemistry and we include mechanical test results for informational purposes.
We stock 410 stainless steel round bar in various sizes from 2-3/4”Ø up to 12.00”Ø. This is manufactured according to ASTM A276 and A479. We stock both Condition A and Condition 2 (T). If required by the customer, we will heat treat this to increase the hardness.
Our 416 is manufactured per ASTM A582 and stock in condition A as well as Condition T. We keep up to 8.00” Ø on hand. If required by the customer, we will heat treat this to increase the hardness.
We manufacture pump shafts from 410 stainless. These are high speed shafts that require the final product to be very straight. In order to meet our customer’s straightness expectations, we keep stress relieved material in stock ready to be machined. The 410 is manufactured per ASTM A276 Condition T as well as ASTM A479 Condition 2 and the 416 is manufactured per ASTM A582 Condition T. Although not required by ASTM A582, our shaft material will be accompanied by the mechanical test results.
The 17-4 that we stock is manufactured according to ASTM A564 and is heat treated to Condition H1150D with single H1150 mechanical properties. We carry this in sizes up to 5.75”Ø.
This material is manufactured per ASTM A276 and stocked in condition T. We keep up to 6-1/4”Ø on hand. If required by the customer, we will heat treat this to increase the hardness.
This is stocked in various sizes and is manufactured per ASTM B505. Generally this is used to manufacture bearings, bushings, fluid control rings, etc.
This is manufactured per ASTM A276 and 479 and stocked in the annealed condition. We keep various sizes up to 6-3/4’’Ø on hand.
This is also known as Nitronic™ 60 and is manufactured according to ASTM A276. This is generally used for making bearings.
We also stock a wide selection of centrifugally cast tube of all sizes. Generally this is used to make shaft sleeves, wear rings, and other wear components. While we stock this in the normalized and tempered condition, we do have the capability to heat treat these to the customers required hardness. All material is manufactured according to ASTM A743 in the following grades.
Although not considered a stocking material, we have extensive inventory of other alloys of steel, stainless steel, nickel and chrome alloys, brass\bronze as well as plastics. Feel free to contact us for a quote.
We also offer our customers a service of stocking their most used finish machined parts. We have worked with them to determine stocking limits and annual consumption so we can extend large quantity pricing to our customers, even if they only need one part. This also allows us to ship the same day that we receive the order for faster lead times. Please contact us if you have parts that you buy on a regular basis and are interested in participating in the program.
