High Volume Production

Get Parts Fast

High Volume Production, High Quality Standards

High volume production is often the end goal for many of our prototyping customers.  While the benefits of producing more parts at once may seem obvious, Preece Machining and Assembly can save our customers more money than our competitors by leveraging technology. Our attention to detail and our streamlined CNC machining process allows us to seamlessly move from prototyping to the production phase . Our customers can request updates on their projects at specific intervals to ensure they are meeting their deadlines. Our ERP allows us to easily build and pull from inventory to ensure delivery and quality.

Our ISO9001:2015 certified CNC machine shop is built from the floor up to handle the quality and cosmetic requirements of your production CNC project. We invest heavily in technology to ensure we collect the most accurate, real-time data possible. Whether its production scheduled down to the minute or detailed quality plans for your project, we have a solution you can rely on. At PMA our quoting software, our ERP, and our quality software are synced together to provide a service that's transparent and reliable.

Build To Inventory

Purchasing more than you need can be expensive, especially if your CNC machined product is taking up shelf space. The Solution? Let Preece Machining & Assembly manufacture and build to our inventory. You tell us how many parts you need and at what frequency you need them and let us handle the rest. The best of both worlds: Get your CNC machined parts when you need them all while getting the production pricing that you need to be competitive. Please contact us if you’d like to know more about inventory management solutions.

Reduce Costs

The start of a project always begins the same: Request for a quote, or RFQ. Once a RFQ is received, our custom quoting software allows us to analyze the geometry and highlight possible problematic features. Our team is instantly notified of the pending RFQ and the process is started. One powerful feature of our quoting software is the ability to easily quote many different quantities of the same part for our customers to demonstrate price saving opportunities.

The most significant expenses associated with high volume CNC machining are machining time, set-up costs, material costs, and inspection. As the volume of a project increases, the more time can be allocated towards increasing the efficiency of every aspect of part production. Each area of the project that can be optimized results in savings passed along to our customers. We are able to pin point these areas consistently with our dedicated, highly skilled team of machinist and project managers.

Lights Out CNC Machining

Preece Machining & Assembly has invested heavily in lights out machining technology. Lights out high volume CNC machining refers to running parts unattended or over night without the added intervention from an operator. Skilled labor is a major cost to all high volume CNC machining shops and is factored in to all the work that flows through the shop. The ability to reduce skilled labor enables major cost saving for our customers. Lights out machining also boosts our shops capacity enabling us to be more productive with less shifts. A great use case is on our CNC lathe; we have been able to set up our lathe loading the bar feeder with raw stock, leave for the night and come back to finished parts in the morning. This overnight automation enables a 45% cost reduction for our customer. Click here to find out if your part is a good fit for lights out high volume CNC machining.

Versatile Quality Control

Our CNC machine shop in Boulder, CO has a robust quality control lab and a strong quality policy that all our employees embrace throughout the company. Our quality control lab is temperature controlled and regularly audited to ensure we can deliver consistent results to our customers. We aim for zero defects to be released to our customers and have procedures in place to catch issues as they arise in the high volume CNC machining process.

Preece Machining & Assembly is equipped and ready to handle the inspection needs of a production run because we built our QC lab with customer satisfaction in mind. Our lab is built around our fully CNC CMM allowing us to meet production inspection needs and automate the inspection process. The CMM in our QC lab can inspect parts fully unattended and has 5 axis capability.
