What we bring



Less is More

Our team will work with you to bring new or existing designs into the unique manufacturing process, from design to production.

  • CAD Rendering

  • Structural Analysis

  • Rapid Prototyping

  • Custom Hardware Design

  • Pre-Production Model

We focus on automation over manual labor to maintain consistency between parts, reduce overhead costs and to leverage lights-out manufacturing.

At Op1 Industries, we believe that handling material during the manufacturing process degrades the consistency and precision of our work. We leverage our years of experience making parts on industry leading 4 and 5 axis machine tools unlike any other manufacturer.

This is our workhorse for milling solutions at Op1. Our combined experience in Horizontal Milling Centers (HMC) allows us to fully maximize what this machine is truly capable of. We have a dedicated programmer and operator to this machine to keep it running at its optimal capacity. 

Manufacturing parts true to print starts on the best machine tools in the industry, but is confirmed on a Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM). Our dedicated CMM specialist has over a decade in metrology and engineering. We offer the ability to certify parts, fixtures and QC tools as well as provide detailed inspection reports.

For over a decade, our Swiss operator and programmer has received wide recognition from the industry for pushing Swiss machine tools to their absolute limit. Being among the first American machinists to fully utilize this capability for the defense sector has given our company an edge in automating parts traditionally done on Vertical Milling Centers (VMC).

Support Equipment:
- Okamoto ACC-16•32GX (Automatic Surface Grinder)
- 8" Chuck, Samsung CNC Lathe (2-axis)
- Haas MiniMill (3-axis VMC)
- CNC Bridgeport Prototrak (3-axis VMC)
- Manual Lathe (2-axis Lathe)
- Horizontal Band Saw
