As a high-end CNC machine shop, Stecker Machine understands the value of great foundries. We enjoy the strong, growth-focused foundry partnerships we have, and we’re always looking to expand our connections.
The best work results when we pull together foundries and customers to collaborate on design for manufacturability to reduce costs, simplify production, minimize design rework, and maintain overall quality. We know how to balance costs and risks to be successful.
Whether Stecker takes the customer lead or we’re the supplier when a foundry brings in a customer, the approach is the same: true collaboration with a focus on meeting deadlines without delays and full customer satisfaction.
“Thanks to all! [We] really, really appreciate what you all have done to keep this new customer happy! Stecker has been referred around here as our machine shop ‘rock stars!’ Thanks again!”
Balance, wash, paint, debur, broach, etc. — When serving major OEMs, you never know what subcontractor service may be needed next.
Pressure test — Parts are tested after machining, assembly, and/or impregnation. We’re proficient in air decay, mass flow, and air under water test processes.
Assembly — From simple processes to highly complex automated assemblies, our stations often include built-in poka-yoke.
We perform the majority of our machining on iron, aluminum sand cast (including aluminum lost foam), and aluminum diecast, although we do work on brass, steel, cast iron, and others. To see the end results of our work, scroll through this photo gallery.
