Machining Technologies, Inc. established its Wear Parts business in Elmore, Ohio,
specializing in the precision grinding of tungsten carbide wear materials. We began
catering primarily to the high-pressure paint and oil industries’ needs for fluid
dispensing and pump components such as valve seats.
The Plastic Ball Division was established incorporating mold making, injection molding,
and specialty ball grinding/finishing. Plastic Balls are custom made for many applications
such as pump and flow control devises, light load bearings, construction of office
furniture and medical equipment, and are used extensively in pharmaceutical, medical
diagnostic, food and chemical production.
Machining Technologies expanded by building a new facility at 468 Maple Street.
This year witnessed the start of our Precision CNC Machining Division. Utilizing
state-of-the-art CNC Turning, CNC Vertical Machining, and Multi-Spindle Screw Machines
the Machining Division has the capability to manufacture just about any type of
precision machined part. Many of our customers had needs for the carbide wear components
to be brazed to parts machined from steels and other materials. The addition of
the Machining Division enabled us to autonomously produce a completed assembly in
This year marked the setting up of our Metal Ball Division to produce tungsten carbide
balls to compliment our Wear Parts and Plastic Ball business. Tungsten Carbide Balls
are on the other end of the hardness spectrum in comparison to Plastic Balls. They
can be found in heavy machinery applications where extreme hardness must be accompanied
by high resistance to wear and impact. Particularly, they are used in many of the
Wear Parts we produce such as industrial sprayers and flow control devises. They
are also the preferred choice for precision hydraulic valves, high load bearings,
gauging and checking instruments, and hole sizing.
Machining Technologies added to its existing facility, doubling the available square
Automated pressing, preforming (soft machining), and sintering technology was developed
for a Carbide Manufacturing Division to produce the cemented tungsten carbide blanks
for our Wear Parts and Tungsten Carbide Ball manufacture and the needs of other
customers for carbide blanks.
The Carbide Manufacturing was shifted to Duncan, South Carolina in a bid to heighten
our expertise and increase our product base. Machining Technologies also increased
capacity by 100% through the acquisition of equipment and technology at the South
Machining Technologies continues to consistently develop technology to enhance its
in-house manufacturing capabilities. We are looked upon as a leader in product development
thanks to our innate ability to closely work with our customers' engineering staff.
Most importantly, it is our Quality, Innovated Technology, and Service that have
kept us consistently at the top with our customers.
