Machining on the Edge:From Concept to Design to Development
What is Crabil Manufacturing?
Founded in 2001, Crabil Manufacturing, Inc. is an ISO 9001:2008 certified job shop specializing in tight tolerance parts. Focused and dedicated employees, quality control processes and regularly updated manufacturing and CMM equipment have played an integral role in our success and growth. Additionally, we form lasting relationships with our clients and built a business based on referrals as a result.
Clients who want a one stop shop find it with Crabil. As a result of our established relationships with outside experts we are able to support our clients from conceptual design to finished assemblies without carrying the cost of these capabilities in our overhead.
- Crabil has served the needs of a wide-range of clients:
- US Military & Government Contractors
- FFL Manufacturing
- Power Generation
- High-frequency Communication
- Tool & die
- Process industries
Developing a Manufacturing Solution
How we develop our manufacturing process.
Whether prototype work or production runs, at Crabil, we design a manufacturing solution that is efficient and consistently produces quality parts. We utilize multi-axis production techniques to reduce setup time and ultimately produce a higher quantity of quality parts faster. When short prototype runs result in larger production orders our experts work together to ensure the same level of quality conformance.
Manufacturing a Quality Product
How we manufacture our clients' design.
We are driven to manufacture quality parts that meet our clients’ specifications in a timely manner. Through our longstanding relationships with vendors we are able to source a wide variety of material in a short timeframe. Designs based on customer prints and/or models are programmed via MasterCam X9 and machine code. Any specialty tooling that isn’t in stock is ordered, and our team of machinists ensure that our clients’ designs are accurately brought to life by conducting in-process inspections.
When outside processes are called-out we have a network of providers that we work closely with to ensure the final quality and the timely completion of the product.
Let us know your production needs and we will work to provide the best solution for your company. Orders can be placed with scheduled completion dates or in a JIT or Kanban fashion. Additionally, Crabil can accommodate changing supply needs by adjusting the production schedule.
- Crabil uses the following in house processes:
- Five Axis Milling
- Multi Axis Mill-Turn Lathes
- Hardware install and Sub-Assembly Build Per-Print
Quality Finish and Inspection
How we deliver a quality finished product.
All parts are processed through the Finish Department to clean and prepare them for outside processing or final inspection and shipping. A variety of tools and techniques are used to produce uniform parts that meet the client’s product design. All manufactured parts are screened using high power optics by skilled technicians and cleaned using precision power tools. Parts requiring assembly or part-marking spend time on the bench and then move to inspection.
Parts are measured at set-up with a first article inspection, throughout production using in-process inspection, and at the end with a final inspection. Our Quality Department employs state of the art CMM to verify part conformance. Quality Assurance Provisions are specified by our clients via their purchase order. Crabil follows the acceptance sampling standard of ANSI/ASQ Z1.4-2008 Sampling Procedures for Inspection by Attributes.
The Quality Department is also employed by our clients as a third party inspection source to verify parts from their manufacturing facilities.
