Price Manufacturing is an experienced provider of screw and CNC precision machining. Arizona and California businesses have relied on our services for years because we have never stopped developing new ways of serving our customers.

We started in 1980 with four Davenport machines and a focus on the aerospace industry. Over time, we have added new industries to our work. Now, we serve companies in a variety of areas, and we have the expertise to produce parts more accurately and quickly than ever.

Below, we describe some of the systems and tools that Price Manufacturing has implemented in its CNC machine shop. California and Arizona companies are encouraged to contact us to discuss how we can support their specific projects.

Enterprise Resource Program

Price Manufacturing utilizes an “ERP,” a software system capable of tracking all customer and vendor orders. This system allows us to schedule production, check inventory, and keep a record of quality.

The ERP is more than a tool to help us in precision machining. It:

  • Provides Arizona and California customers with transparency into their projects. They have access to information that lets them adjust orders on a month-to-month basis.
  • Gives customers greater confidence in our ability to deliver on-time, as they can easily find out what stage their parts have reached.
  • Allows us to monitor quality and track any corrective and preventive steps we are taking on behalf of each customer.

Laser Inspection System

As a precision screw and CNC machine shop, California and Arizona companies evaluate us based on our accuracy, among other factors. This is why we have added a laser inspection system to our process.

The system can inspect a part’s external features in less than two seconds, and we can track that data by machine, time, date, operator, and material. Even when a part has hundreds of characteristics, we can measure our work with this tool. The technology eliminates the time-consuming process of a manual inspection.

Radioisotope Unit

Quality is another key factor in precision machining. Arizona and California companies in industries such as aerospace and automotive require alloy verification: a necessary and time-consuming step.

Fortunately, Price Manufacturing utilizes a radioisotope unit, which can check the chemical composition of bar stock. When a CNC machine shop doesn’t have this equipment, California and Arizona companies might need to provide a sampling of parts to an outside laboratory and pay the high cost of testing for each piece. Price Manufacturing’s radioisotope unit can test materials against a standard, verify the alloy in-house, and record the results digitally.

Efficiency for Our Customers

Each of these systems and tools were implemented at some cost to our company. However, Price Manufacturing recognizes that the time and money savings for our customers are worth it. We invite you to learn more about our services and see for yourself.
