Machining

Along with our in-house magnet materials manufacturing, we have set-up various machining centers within our facilities. This allows our production team to:

    • control the process internally
    • control the quality requirements more closely
    • be more vertically integrated in the entire process of prototyping through mass production
    • make our own tooling for manufacturing and assembly reduce lead times
    • have multiple machining options if any machine is taken offline
    • fabricate steels and magnetic materials

    Machining Facilities - Overseas Locations

    Our machining and manufacturing centers are located in China and Vietnam. These facilities are set-up to perform as prototype, small run, medium run, or full-scale production facilities. Below is a partial list of the capabilities of our facilities:

        • Manufacture, fabricate, and adhere coatings to magnetic materials
        • Manufacture and customize tooling on-house that is used in manufacturing and assembly processes
        • Manufacture stators and rotors for motors used in low- and high-tech applications
        • Design and manufacture vibratory motors used mainly in consumer electronics
        • Set-up assembly lines for sub-assemblies or final assemblies
        • Design and develop automation for large scale production to increase efficiencies and reduce costs
        • Research and develop new magnetic materials
        • Develop new manufacturing techniques for magnetic materials
        • Manufacture soft magnetic materials through Metal Injection Molding (MIM)
        • Develop Manufacturing Plans for Prototyping, EVT, DVT and Mass Production
        • Collect, analyze, and review manufacturing data to continuously improve the processes
        • Develop quality control programs used within the manufacturing process to ensure repeatability and consistency
        • Utilize on-site test labs and equipment to ensure end products are correct
