YOUR VISION, OUR PRECISION
CrossWind Machining believes that the customer’s best interests are what drive our business. We want to help you reach your goals. We take pride in our product and in the CrossWind name. Our number one priority is to consistently meet or exceed our customers’ expectations.
CrossWind Machining, Inc. strives to serve our customers with honesty and integrity and to consistently surpass their expectations in both quality and delivery scheduling. We will make every effort to continually maintain and improve our Quality Management System.
At CrossWind, we train our machinists to understand more than just the basics of machining. We have successfully wedded the past to the future with our ability to combine the latest CNC technology with over 40 years of machining skill and experience.
MACHINE CAPABILITY AND PROCESSES
Our machines and processes are designed for micro-sized components. Our facility houses state-of-the-art, CNC Swiss micromachining technology capable of turned diameters as small as .004” and up to 1.25” diameter. We can utilize drills and end mills as small as .002 in most metals and plastics while holding tolerances of +/- .0001.
We can easily accomplish our customers' demand for extreme, high precision and quality finishes at high speed production capacity, often reducing or even eliminating the need for second operation.
CrossWind has developed a network of relationships within the machining industry. We have reliable and approved quality vendors that we partner with for domestic Materials, Heat Treating, Plating, Electropolishing & Electroplating, Anodizing, & Passivation among a variety of other material treatments. We also partner with other machine shops who specialize in a variety of manual and CNC machining services. We are known for our ability to help solve some of our customers’ most complex challenges while maintaining their desired high quality of precision.
Materials - We can provide traceable materials of a wide variety of material specification from domestic suppliers. These include titanium, stainless steel, nickel alloys, copper alloys, aluminum and a wide variety of plastics.
Some parts require milling operations and some require turning. Most shops will do the milling operation and then next step the part to a lathe for the turning operation. CrossWind machines have the ability to do both on the same machine. The live tooling on our machines allow us to cross drill, cross ream, cross tap, cross thread mill and off center face drill, even milling the face of the part all on one machine. The less handling of a part, the more savings we are able to pass on to our customer.
We love to get involved with your project/part when you first design it. It may look good in CAD it may even look like it fits good, but actually creating the part could be quite expensive. We help make those small changes that would not affect the functionality of the piece, but would make the building of the piece much more cost effective. Saving a few cents per piece in the prototype phase can translate to thousands of dollars once we reach production stage.
