Let’s take a moment to reflect on the key milestones that defined our journey in 2023, setting the stage for expanded service excellence in the year ahead.
Expanding our Arsenal: Welcoming New Machines
In a significant move to enhance our capabilities and cater to the evolving needs of our clients, we proudly added two cutting-edge machines to our fleet:
Mazak Slant Turn 550: This state-of-the-art machine not only expands our Slant Turn machine collection but also significantly increases our production capacity. We are poised to deliver even more efficiently and effectively to our Oil & Gas clients.
DMG Mori DMF 360/11: This full 5-axis vertical mill, boasting 140” in X travel and 43” in Y travel, elevates our machining capabilities and capacity for clients in the Oil & Gas, Space, Aerospace, & Defense industries. It’s a testament to our dedication to staying at the fo
Advancing Efficiency: Upgraded Shrink Fit Technology
Recognizing the pivotal role of reliable and efficient tooling in our operations, Coastal Machine and Supply made a strategic investment in the Haimer Power Clamp Premium I4.0. This upgraded shrink fit machine enhances the reliability and efficiency of our shrink fit tooling processes, ensuring precision and consistency in every project. Shrink fit technology not only minimizes tool runout but also provides improved rigidity and better machining performance, ultimately translating to higher quality outputs for our clients.
Expanding Infrastructure: A Bigger Home for Innovation
Our commitment to innovation and growth is reflected in the physical expansion of our facilities. Adding 3600 sq/ft to house our Saws, Manual Equipment, and Maintenance area has been a game-changer. This expansion not only provides more space for these critical aspects of our operations but also frees up valuable area in the manufacturing section, allowing for smoother workflows and more efficient production of completed products.
Precision through Simulation: Investing in Cutting-Edge Software
In line with our pursuit of precision and quality assurance, Coastal Machine and Supply partnered with Hexagon to integrate their NC Simul machine simulation software into our operations. This investment ensures that every program reaching our machines undergoes thorough simulation and validation, minimizing errors and maximizing efficiency. G-Code is proven out before execution, guaranteeing the highest level of accuracy in our manufacturing processes.
Harnessing the Power of Technology: Mastering Mastercam
We also invested in Mastercam, a leading software in the industry. This addition equips our team with advanced programming tools, enabling us to unlock the full potential of our machines and deliver even more sophisticated and intricate products to our clients.
Streamlining Operations: Partnering with Paperless Parts
Recognizing the importance of agility and efficiency in the quoting process, Coastal Machine and Supply formed a strategic partnership with Paperless Parts. This collaboration has streamlined our quoting procedures, allowing for quicker response times and more accurate estimates. It’s a move that underscores our commitment to providing not just high-quality products but also a seamless and responsive customer experience.
As we reflect on the year 2023, Coastal Machine and Supply stands proud of the strides we’ve made in enhancing our capabilities, embracing cutting-edge technologies, and fortifying our commitment to excellence. The journey doesn’t end here – it’s a stepping stone towards even greater achievements in the years to come. We express our gratitude to our dedicated team, loyal clients, and strategic partners who have been instrumental in making these accomplishments possible. Here’s to another year of innovation, growth, and success!
