Transportation Industry

Industrial Equipment Industry

The transportation industry is in a constant state of innovation to serve its discerning customers with the best product formats, technology, quality, and overall reliability.  With the number of components necessary to bring these products to market, it is no surprise that transportation is the largest industry affecting production machining.  CNC machining in general, and particularly the increased efficiency and value of 4- and 5-axis machining, has increased in automotive production for several very good reasons: Repeatability; Precision; Customization; Finish Options; and Flexibility of Materials.

TCI Precision Metals has been supporting transportation manufacturers with value-added materials, and partially or finished machine parts for over 60-years. TCI Precision Machine-Ready Blanks, Dovetail Blanks and Feature-Added Blanks provide the flexibility manufacturers need when considering high-quality production efficiency.  We use the latest in CNC technology and offer a large variety of materials to choose from, like aluminum, bronze, stainless steel, titanium, and a variety of plastics. We also offer finishes ranging from textures and polishes to plating and anodizing, as well as custom coatings.

  • Fluid system components

What Our Customers Have to Say

More Customer Testimonials —>

I received my blanks today. These look beautiful. Quality product, excellent customer service, on-time delivery, and exceptional packaging… unheard of these days!! I’m anxious to start using them. Thank you for all your help on this. I’ll definitely order again.

Just want to say thanks. I recently ran a job with some blanks ordered from TCI. The blanks saved me two setups and more importantly put extra profit into my pocket. I don’t usually have the luxury of waiting to get material for a job but this time everything worked out fine. You guys rock!
