MasterCAM and SolidWorks provide us with a seamless integration of the design process and the manufacturing process. This allows us to streamline our efforts and avoid costly mistakes translating data. If data translation is necessary, we have the ability to import files from other CAD programs using feature generation software. Having the features and database of a model intact rather than a "Dumb File" allows you to fully utilize the power of your software for editing and creating paths. Once the parts have been generated, they are transmitted via DNC transmission to one of five state of-the-art CNC machining centers. We have 2-axis, 3-axis and 4-axis machining centers, with experienced programmers to very accurately transform your visions into reality. Of course there is still no replacement for good old fashion mold maker technology, and we have that too.

Our modern 44,000 square foot facility in Vista, California was custom built after years of careful design and study. Being the fourth building to house this company, much experience went into the design and layout. Our Injection Molding and Tooling departments are second to none and the plant layout makes for an ease of material handling and flow of finished goods. All this just makes it easier to assure our customers "On-Time and Quality" products.
