Our Capabilities

We are equipped with several Computer Numerical Control (CNC) vertical machining centers. High torque spindles, 5th-axis capabilities, extended Z travel, wireless intuitive probing systems, and CAD/CAM software allow us to provide quality components in a timely fashion at a competitive price.

                   Haas VF-4SS

                         Because we rely each day on the efficiency of

                         these high-performance Super-Speed vertical

                         machining centers, we have two of these models!                           The VF-4SS with TRT160 rotary unit has 5 axes

                         while the other has 3 axes. These have helped us

                         think outside the box when it comes to ways

                         of decreasing cycle times and improving 

                         production output for on-time deliveries.




                     Haas VF-3SS

This Haas high-performance Super-Speed vertical machining center provides high spindle speeds, fast rapids, and quick tool changes necessary for high-volume production and reduced cycle times. This SS machine features a 12,000-rpm, inline direct-drive spindle, an ultra-fast side-mount tool changer, and high-speed rapids on all axes. Our Haas includes a Wireless Intuitive Probing System (WIPS) allowing us to mill up to 5 times faster. WIPS saves time and money by guiding the operator through the job set-up process with easy-to-use templates. WIPS has the ability to define work offset coordinates, set tool length offsets, and perform in-process inspection within the program, for both part inspection and tool breakage detection. 

Haas VF-2SS


        This is another Haas high-performance Super-

          Speed vertical machining center with 3

          axes providing the high spindle speeds, fast

          rapids, and quick tool changes necessary for

          high-volume production and reduced cycle


Haas Mini Mill 2

This compact vertical machining center offers full CNC capabilities, including 20" x 16" x 14" (508 x 406 x 356 mm), 40 taper, 7.5 hp (5.6 kW) vector drive, 10000 rpm, 20-station automatic tool changer and a Wireless Intuitive Probing System (WIPS).

Haas CL-1

The Haas CL-1 is a compact CNC chucker lathe that can produce high volume precision parts. This lathe includes 1" (25 mm) bar, 4.95" (126 mm) swing over table, 12" x 8" (305 x 203 mm) travels (xz), 5 hp (3.7 kW) 6000 rpm, 5C collet spindle.

Hexagon 4.5.4 SF

The Hexagon 4.5.4 SF has built-in vibration resistance, and provides a high accuracy of product measurements. The etched granite base defines the measurement envelope in the X and Y axes. The machine provides precise dimensional inspection on all pieces scanned and integrates advanced thermal compensation to adjust for shop floor temperature gradients. The capabilities of this machine allow us to ensure proper measurements and details of complex pieces. The precision probing provides high accuracy rates with each cycle.

Haas Automation’s VF-2

This Haas vertical machining center has 762 x 406 x 508 mm XYZ travels and is built using all American-made cast-iron components. Like every Haas machine, the VF-2 represents years of on-going refinement. Customer feedback coupled with the relentless pursuit of perfection sees advancements and design-enhancing changes incorporated directly into the production line every day here at Thomas Engineering.


Okuma GENOS L250

This is a multi-function lathe that is anything but basic. Built on a one-piece, cast iron base with a horizontal way system and hand-scraped headstock and tailstock mounting surfaces, this machine provides stability, rigidity and accuracy for a variety of applications. Available in with a 6″ chuck with a 13″ Z-axis travel or 8″ chuck with an 18.5″ Z-axis travel, the GENOS L-250 CNC lathe takes up as little as 30 square feet of floor space.

Kasto Radial U7

This semi-automatic vertical circular saw, provides us the ability to cut individual, straight and mitre quickly and accurately.
