It’s not obvious to most folks, but you’re looking at our new website as of January 2021. Nothing earth-shattering. Pretty much the same content, with some equipment updates. On the surface it’s little more than a facelift, a new look. The big change is in the back end; what we have to deal with in…

When it comes to Quality with a capital Q, many sales people throw the word around. Few can show when they deliver. We consistently shine when it comes to our annual AS9100 certification audit. We don’t usually brag about it. This year I’ll make an exception. In accordance with AS9100D, Section 10.1, STC Industries/Spiral Tool…

Rigging in our new Doosan MV3016 vertical milling center, grateful that it wasn’t that cold this morning, only 30 degrees, and that the weather cooperated-last time when we rigged in our Haas lathe, it was in the middle of a blizzard.

When is a mill a lathe? When is a lathe a mill? Is it turned? Is it milled? It’s both! Mill/Turn operations have become a major part of our palette of machining capabilities as of late. With the introduction of our 2 inch bar capacity, live-tool turning center early last year, the possibilities of improved…

5 axis Milling can reduce the cost and improve accuracy in machined parts. We’ve always embraced new technology here. NC’s were in our shop in the 60′s-long before most of the industry had even heard of them, let along the average person on the street. Seems it wasn’t that long ago that “CNC-machined parts” caught…
