Our team did a great job this year increasing output by 38% from January to December. To continue improving on our efficiency and output for 2022, our Continuous Improvement Manager is leading our company in a Value Stream Mapping project.
New Dimensions Precision Machining, NFPA’s latest member, has a rich history in the fluid power industry dating back to 1987. The new supplier is a global sourcing leader/solution for precision CNC machined hydraulic manifolds/valves, castings and cylinder components with capabilities including prototyping, on-demand machining and high-volume production utilizing over 90 pieces of equipment.
Received our new Makino A61 4-axis HMC with 218 tools.
Installation complete on our new Zeiss Contura programmable CMM.
Happy to have been able to help South Dakota State University’s Agriculture and Biosystems Engineering Department by donating some manifolds for their hydraulics training test stand. A great new tool to expand student interaction with hydraulic systems and train the next generation of fluid power engineers.
Some donuts and bagels to thank all our employees for a good January. 2021 off to a good start.
ND has worked with Dura-Bar on many successful projects to save our customers money. Improved machinability reduces cost when switching parts made of common steels to use continuous cast ductile iron instead. This success was shared in the January ’21 edition of Fluid Power World.
Our new mill turn machine is in full operation. These hydraulic manifolds with multiple internal angled connections are being machined complete in one operation. The bar-feeder and accumulator table provide hours of un-manned operation for cost effective production.
A very successful completion of our recertification audit marks our 15th consecutive year as an ISO9001 certified company!
ND was happy to support the Iowa State Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering program by donating machined hydraulic components for their Dynamic Tire Testing project. Over 200 students each year in their fluid power courses experience hands-on training in the Fluid Power Laboratory.
