Production Machining - Medium to High Volume
Production machining is the core competency of Quantum Precision Machining. Our Engineering team plans lean work processes to optimize the efficient production of your parts. We can work with your engineers to optimize part designs for production machining.
Muti-Axis Automatic CNC and Cam Operated Screw Machines are employed to effectively provide medium to high volume precision production machining.
Quantum machines a vast varierty of materials. Depending on the volume, many times we can machine a part more cost effectively than having it molded, extruded, cast, stamped or otherwise fabricated.

Lean Manufacturing - 5S Principles
Quantum has aggressively employed lean manufacturing principles since its inception. It has allowed us to reduce cost and lead-time to our customers. Continuous improvement and waste reduction is a philosophy that is ingrained in everyone at Quantum and it is one of our most core beliefs.
Quantum offers a fully supported Jit-Kanban service aimed at users of medium to high volume machined components and proprietary parts
Section of machines to cover low volume. This allows any parts required in less than 1,000 lots to be tackled with the correct machinery i.e. quick to set up, and isolate the impact of low volume work from the general operations thereby ensuring that overall delivery performance is maintained. This has led to a marked reduction in the demand for changeovers on the conventional machines, shortening of the lead times for all machining sections by removing low volume demand from them, and more efficient secondary operation turning due to their ability to semi-automate additional operations where required.
