Tool, Die & Mold Building
From start to finish, we have the equipment and expertise for every step in the precision mold making process, and tool & die design and manufacturing.
A technique common to the aerospace industry, 5-Axis CNC milling allows for cutting across multiple axes simultaneously, producing precise and intricate parts.
Using a computer-controlled lathe, we can make any custom part or component to exact measurements.
Wire & Sinker EDM
For hard metals and other materials, wire & sinker EDM cuts intricate contours and cavities without the need for heat to soften and re-harden the material.
Precision Surface Grinding
Our techniques give a more refined finish, while maintaining the closest possible tolerance dimension.
Our experienced craftsmen have the skills to make a wide range of products with the highest attention to detail.
The most effective method of grinding precision holes, our jig grinding machine achieves complex shapes and holes with the highest degrees of accuracy.
Excellent for punching holes in sheets of metal, this is a process well-suited for mass production.
We can bend sheet metal to match any design and purpose.
We have the capability to bend metal tubes into a variety of designs.
The CMM is considered an important technique for increasing manufacturing quality.

Sheet Metal Laser
With laser technology, we are able to make custom, complex parts to fit any need. Our Trumpf model 2030 CO2 Laser has 3200 watts of power, which allows us to quickly and precisely process mild steel up to ¾”, aluminum up to ¼”, and stainless steel up to ⅜” thick. The high efficiency of our sheet metal laser means more competitive prices for our customers.
We have a 100-ton and a 200-ton brake press, which allow us to form sheet metal into different shapes and angles. Our tool & die expertise allows us to make any press brake tooling we need to satisfy our customers’ requirements.
Our stamping presses utilize complete die sets, which our knowledgeable tool room staff can design and build. These machines mostly use rolled metal and can run some parts in less than one second per part! We can also use these machines for more complex bends that our press brakes cannot achieve.
We have two turret presses at Advanced Tool & Machine. These machines are one of the most efficient ways to punch and form sheet metal parts.
While we use laser technology for low volume cutouts, the turret press still has the advantage of using forming tools as well as cutting tools for any volume of parts.
At Advanced Tool & Machine, we have trained professionals who are capable of MIG and TIG welding, as well as brazing, to exact specifications. Whether you need a complex assembly welded or thousands of parts, we have the capability to get the job done right.
Sanding & Finishing
Multiple sanding and finishing machines are utilized at Advanced Tool & Machine to prep parts for whatever finish our customers require.
Full 5-Axis CNC Machining Centers
We have two 5-Axis CNC Machining Centers with the option of a 3rd.
Our ZPS TAJMAC 1210 is a trunnion style machine with a work envelope of 24 x 24 x 24 ( X Y Z ) with a 900-lb weight limit. It has a full 360-degree C axis and 190-degree A axis ( + or – 95 degrees.) Our Deckel Maho DMC60T is a rotary/swivel head machine with a work envelope of 16 x 16 x 16 ( X Y Z ) with an 800-lb weight limit. It has a full 360-degree C axis and 150-degree B axis ( +30 to -120 degrees.) This machine also has a pallet changer, which allows for continuous production runs with no down time for changing parts. The pallet changer can also be utilized to run multiple operations without down time.
We also have a HAAS VF3YT Machining Center with a 5-axis trunnion available, should the need arise for a 3rd 5-axis capable machining center.
3-Axis CNC Vertical Machining Centers
Our multiple Vertical Machining Centers (VMC) range in capacity from 16” x 30” x 20” ( X Y Z ) all the way up to 80” x 30” x 30” ( X Y Z ). This allows us to machine a large range of part sizes.
2-Axis CNC Turning Centers
We have multiple 2-axis CNC Turning Centers. We can turn parts up to 18” in diameter and up to 40” long. Longer parts can be made if they are 3” in diameter or smaller.
We have many capabilities for grinding to exact specifications, including: Wet Surface Grinding, Hand Surface Grinding, Jig Grinding, and Centered OD Grinding.
Electrical Discharge Machining
EDM Machining allows for many advantages:
- Ability to cut precisely; Wire EDM Machining can be accurate to +/-.0001” (2.5μm).
- Ability to cut nearly square internal corners.
- Ability to cut tapers that would be impossible to cut otherwise.
- Faster, more accurate production runs.
- Ideal for delicate or intricate parts.
- No burrs are generated.
- Pieces over 10” thick can be machined.
- Tools and parts are machined after heat treatment so dimensional accuracy is held.
- Parts are not affected by heat treat distortion.
We also have a Sinker EDM, which can be utilized when blind EDM is required.
