Value-Add CNC Machining Services

TCI’s contract machining services include value-add CNC machining. We refer to these as TCI Feature-Added Machine-Ready Blanks. CNC Precision Milled and Turned Features are milled or turned to the same tight tolerances as Custom Blanks, but include one or more customer specified features.

Typical added features include:

  • Large amount of material removal: hogging pockets, steps and windows
  • Chamfers and Beveled Edges
  • Holes and Threaded Holes
  • Dovetails
  • Contours and 3D Milling
  • Radii and Other Turned Surfaces
  • Full Contract Machining Services

    TCI can handle complex, high-production contract machining offload. Although a very different business model than our Machine-Ready Blanks, we have decades of experience helping shops offload machine hours. Our Contract Machining Services include CNC turning, CNC milling, sawing, grinding and flattening. Whether your material our ours, we specialize in:

    • Rough CNC Machining – Let us take a tremendous load off of your shop capacity, while we rough or hog your parts down to a near-net shape – ready for you to finish machine.
    • Finish CNC Machining – With over a dozen high-tech, high-precision machining centers, we can finish the parts if you’d like.
    • Medium to Large Parts – Whether the size of a piece of paper, or a 6000# casting, we have the machines and infrastructure to handle the demand.

    Kanban, JIT and Vendor Managed Inventory

    Limit your inventory by having TCI make your parts ahead of time, and ship them when you need them. After an initial blanket order or LTA (Long Term Agreement) is received, TCI uses its MRP system to determine when the next batch of parts is ready to run. This ensures you get your parts when you need them, no sooner, no later.
