Our in-house Kirksite foundry allows for short lead-times for tooling and assembly when a quick turnaround is required. We have a pour capacity of 60,000 lbs. per casting and over 750,000 lbs. per month. Kirksite (zinc alloy) requires little machining to the molding surfaces and can be easily polished for a nice, smooth finish. This allows us to produce tooling for tight time schedules and incorporate changes quickly. Learn more about our kirksite foundry at https://www.qmc-emi.com/capabilities/foundry/
We specialize in both manual and robotic welding, allowing us to customize the manufacturing process to give you the repeatability and flexibility you need. This includes working with unique metals, including joining aluminum to steel read more here about our sheet metal fabrication.
Manual welding, a traditional process, is a lower cost alternative for low volume projects and assembly tooling. It requires less programming and a shorter start-up time, instead relying on the decades of experience and training of our skilled craftsmen. Robotic welding is the technology based approach for welding programs that require high repeatability. There are many benefits of robotic welding, including reduced piece price over the life of the project, more robust processing in higher volume programs, and increased rate and flow.

We use dimensional measuring for parts and fixtures as large as a full BIW. Our white light scanning, blue light scanning, and dual arm CMM measure every aspect of your part ensuring it meets your exact specifications. This is how we ensure you receive the highest quality parts for your program. Learn more about our industry leading capabilities at https://www.qmc-emi.com/capabilities/.
We utilize flexible manufacturing cells that allow us to change cell configuration quickly and easily depending on the needs of your project. This leads to reduced capital due to the wide range of technologies we work with on a day-to-day basis. Our flex cells are able to run in full auto, increasing the rate in flow, getting products to you faster. Contact us to see how our flex cell capabilities can benefit your next program.
We are equipped with the latest technologies in 5-axis and flat pattern laser cutting to cut a full range of materials. Utilizing CO2, O2, nitrogen, and fiber machines, we are able to trim precision metal components with speed and minimal burr. Our machine configurations allow for complex shapes and sizes and accommodate the full range of metallic options with both online and offline programming capabilities. We employ cutting capabilities that allow us to work with a wide range of metals, including carbon steel, aluminum, stainless steel, inconel, titanium, coated metals, mild steel, and high strength metals. Our engineering team utilizes Cenit/Fastsuite software to complete off-line programming (OLP) to streamline the first time quality of our process. Our laser department is accredited by Nadcap for AC7116/4 Rev C laser beam machining (LBM).
