going with a production shop, it is good to ask
some questions. Which precision shop can
complete your project? Many shops are set up
for running your production and have the machines,
specialized tooling, and machine operators to turn
out accurate parts, run after run. The
question is, do they have the craftsmen to timely
deliver a quality, hard to machine prototype part?
Will they work with you through many iterations
until the part is refined for production?
do our customers keep coming back to Scrublin Tool
Company year after year for their modeling needs?
are 10 good reasons:
- We have employees with varied backgrounds
who bring their unique perspectives to the
table. When a project comes up we can make the
prototypes using minimum tooling, with an eye
toward a larger beta run requiring processes,
more in-depth programming and fixturing. This
can lead to quicker testing and rapid product
Customer Service - We're not happy
if you're not happy. It's as simple as that.
We want your business now and in the future
and will go the extra mile or ten to insure
that we've met and exceeded your expectations.
You have our word on that.
Flexibility - We can work from sketches,
CAD drawings, or verbal instructions.
This saves the expense of full documentation
until further along in the project when parts
are closer to being released. We've
worked from mold drawings to machine plastic
parts from solid, out of the correct material.
This was done to verify the drawings and test
the parts before building expensive molds.
Experience - We
have years of experience machining for the
Ultra High Vacuum industry. We follow
correct UHV practices relating to cleanliness,
coolants, outgassing techniques, and weldments.
We're experienced with a wide range of
materials. For those in UHV, we machine
molybdenum, tantalum, titanium, and machinable
ceramic. We also work with many
plastics, as well as common metals such as
stainless steel and aluminum.
Capabilities - Do you have something
out for CE testing and need a quick high Mu
magnetic shield for some electronics?
We've done it.Do you need to clone some parts
from an obsolete system? We've worked
from broken parts, old drawings, and pictures.
- Local Service
- From turning and milling to precision
sheet metal, most parts can be completed here. If
your model shop is busy, you can have the
confidence to send overflow work outside to
meet your deadlines.
- Scalability -
Scrublin does small production runs, from one
to fifty parts. We have taken on larger
production runs as our capacity has increased.
Control - We're aware that changes happen
in mid-project and it's all part of the
R&D process. By having the package
and knowing of each part's placement, we can
catch common mistakes, such as wrong sized
clearance holes or fit problems. During
the R&D stage, we can also help with
- Printing and
Shipping - Print files can be sent via
E-Mail. We prefer DXF files for the
GibbsCAM manufacturing software and AutoCAD
use. PDF extensions are fine for quoting
purposes. Using FedEx , UPS , Fax,
E-Mail, and courier services, we can receive
prints and get parts out to you faster.
We ship parts to Europe as well as rush orders
Turnaround Times - At Scrublin Tool
Company, we do everything that we can to
provide fast turnaround times to all of the
jobs we do and the industries we serve. Your
time is valuable. We do our best to
accommodate changes in the schedule or rush
redlined drawings knowing the customer has a
fixed timetable. If parts are in need of
changes, same day rework and delivery are not
uncommon. When the prototyping and testing is
done, we have more insight into the finished
parts. We can then produce them in quantities
prior to injection molding or large scale
