Some of our work
Materials offer a wide range of characteristics, and EPTAM’s team of engineers and DFM specialists understand how to select and work with the proper materials. EPTAM recognizes the need for speed to market, deliverability, and supply-chain management. Fortunately, for many EPTAM customers, EPTAM’s market position and size help meet these constantly changing demands.
Stainless steels, including:
As the leader in complex multi-axis metal machining, EPTAM Precision Metals offers 3, 4, and 5-axis machining centers. We also offer the ultimate and most capable Swiss turn / milling multifunction turning center on the market today. Time-tested sliding headstock technology and Tsugami precision allow us to machine long, slender parts that traditional turning centers cannot. Milling capability from the tool spindle gives us the capability to make virtually any complex part. The ATC and 16-station turret combine to eliminate set-ups and changeovers, making this multi-function the perfect choice for short runs of complex parts ensuring that we can handle any project with precision and accuracy.
Every EPTAM client faces the same challenges – design parts to meet performance standards and ensure production ramp and capacity availability while controlling costs.
