One of the keys to our quality at M.R.S. Machining is our strategic organization. Adhering to lean manufacturing 5-S principals (learn more here), MRS uses two key strategies for efficiency and quality. The result is higher productivity and better quality.
With over 25 pieces of late-model, precision machinery, M.R.S Machining has the capability and capacity for high productivity in low to medium volume precision turned and machined parts. Maximizing that productivity helps keep your costs down while offering superior service and quality.
Our machinery is grouped in cells to maximize productivity and make the most of of our highly skilled operators. Cells generally consist of two or three machines with complementary capabilities.
This row of machines is actually two cells specializing in big-bore lathes and long center distance turning. The lathe on the left is performing a deep hole "gun drilling" operation in addition to turning the long outer diameter. When those operations are completed, the operator conveniently switches the part to the machine across the aisle, eliminating steps and keeping consecutive operations in sequence.
Inspection of parts during machining operations and between multiple setups helps reduce scrap and assure you of better parts. Visit our shop and you'll see neatly organized workspaces with all the tools needed for the current operation, without the clutter of unneeded tools.
Working this way in conjunction with our cell floorplan, critical inspections are performed after operations, but before the next process. This real-time inspection assures you of quality parts delivered on time, every time.
