One of Natoma
Corporation's greatest strengths is precision. Our
technicians and the machines they operate are capable of producing
almost any conditions, the mill department can reliably hold
tolerances of ±.0002 inches, while our lathe department can hold
as close as ±.0001 inches; these include lengths, depths,
thickness, diameter, and about any other type of measurement.
Visit our Inspection page to find out more about
how we insure such tolerances are held.
We offer an assortment of production and post-production
processes to fit customers' needs. Below is a small list
of our most common processes.
Machining - From raw
Corporation's technicians can mill, drill, turn, cut, bore, thread, ream,
and chamfer to create a product meeting your precise specifications. We
have a large number of endmills, drills, inserts, taps,
boring bars, reamers, and other tools on hand, but can
quickly order any uncommon tools our customers' parts may
require or use specialized tools provided by them.
- Natoma Corporation owns a variety of precision production
machines. Our mill section is comprised of a number of
vertical mills, many with a full 4th axis and one with a 5th
axis (3+2), along with a pair of horizontal mills. We
also have several super-precision and swiss lathes as well
as a couple 7-axis mill turning centers. Our Production Equipment
page has all the details.
Finishing - Our finishing
department's current capabilities include chemical
conversion coating to MIL-C-5541 and MIL-DTL-5541F, type I
and type II as well as
Passivation to SAE AMS2700 and ASTM A967. When other
plating is required, it is subcontracted to approved special
Hardware and Assembly -
Our special operations department offers the capability to
handle other post-production processes. Helicoils,
pressed pins, and bolts are just a few of the inserts we
work with. Additionally, if we manufacture or are
provided with multiple parts for the same final product, our
staff can assemble as much as is requested.
Our shop is capable of manufacturing small products made from
almost any material used by the industries we serve; from common metals and
exotic alloys to plastics and
other synthetic material. While a general majority of the parts
we produce are various grades of aluminum, we also work with
steel, stainless steel, tool steel, titanium, tungsten, ductile iron,
brass, copper, Moldstar, bronze, nylon, Ryton, polypropylene,
polycarbonate, Teflon, Lexan, Delrin, phenolic, polyurethane,
polysulfone, and more.
