Precision Parts and Fabrications
Fox Valley Metal Tech has taken the best good manufacturing practices and developed processes and documentation methods that allows to produce precision parts and fabrications that meet our customers’ requirements. Many of the items we manufacture are items that require to be made precisely for their application such as in the packaging or printing industries. These parts and fabrications need to be interchangeable with original parts supplied on custom machinery and so our documentation and manufacturing process used must produce the exact same part as the originally supplied part or fabrication. Additionally, we produce many items for the defense industry that are fabrications that require to mate with high precision parts or electronics and must hold very tight tolerances for a weldment. FVMT’s ability to provide these services are a result of investments in design and manufacture of custom jigs & fixtures, detailed work instructions, large machining centers, development of welding shrinkage guidelines and other unique manufacturing techniques.
