Secondary Operations

In-House Secondary Machining

Operations on a part which follow the first turning operation are generally referred to as "secondary operations".  Fordsell has a full complement of production-ready secondary equipment giving us the capability to run complex parts complete to print.

Equipment

  • Single spindle screw machines able to handle miniature to larger parts

  • Horizontal mills

  • Bridgeport® mills

  • Drill presses, lathes

  • Surface finishing

Key Benefits

  • Responsibility: The benefit to the customer is the ability of one supplier to be responsible for and control much of the machining operations without needing to go to a sub-supplier.

  • Short lead time: Extensive secondary allows Fordsell to respond to aggressive customer scheduling requirements by shifting resources appropriately across a wide range of equipment.
