Most of us take for granted the manufactured goods that we use every day, but someone, somewhere, has figured out a way to produce those goods in an efficient manner, which makes them affordable to the consumer. The drive to develop a “Better Mousetrap” never stops, as inventors constantly strive to make goods that are a benefit to society and engineers are charged with the task of improving products and the methods used to produce them.
The tooling used to produce a product, or parts within a given product, are the factors that directly affect the quality and success of everything that is manufactured. Component Tool has established a reputation with our customers based on skilled and knowledgeable craftsmen, combined with the latest in manufacturing technology. Getting to this point has taken the dedicated effort of our crew. Component Tool has developed from a one man shop, to a group of dedicated craftsmen. As a close-knit team, most of our machinists and tool makers have learned their trade while employed at Component Tool. This team of skilled tradesmen have worked together and helped each other learn the intricacies of our trade – we hand what we have learned down to the next person, just as it was handed to us.
The industry’s transition from manual machining into the world of CNC Machining, including computer driven machine tools and CAD Drafting, has greatly improved the accuracy and quality of the goods made. These machines, paired with our knowledge and expertise, are able to dramatically out-perform machines of the past – easily at a rate of 10 to 1. It still takes people to make all these things happen, the technological advancements of today’s machines is only secondary to the skills and abilities of the people that run them.
Our job shop environment specializes in serving a very diverse customer base, with skilled craftsmen feeding into the machine tool controls to produce the most precise product for our customer’s end use.
