We love to make metal work

We’re proud of our modern machine shop and the number of CNC machines on hand, which ensures we can meet a broader range of manufacturing requirements. Plus, we've a number of manually-operated machines including grinders, lathes, and mills. This gives us the flexibility to complete a range of tasks that don’t require computer programming, and turn around simpler projects in a cost-effective fashion for our customers as needed.

Total Precision also has metrology capabilities to substantiate proof of accurate measuring of specifications.
