These guys are like artists, they can take a piece of raw steel, bronze or G10 and machine it into caps, cores, slip rings, buttons and more. At the center of every commutator is a steel core. That core provides stability and strength to the segment pack, exactly how we like to look at our machinists. Working together with our front end production team they support each other, jumping in when they need a hand or a second opinion.
Becoming a skilled machinist takes years of experience, between these 5 guys there are well over 150 years of knowledge. These machinists read and execute prints, they know what they are doing, each comm and slip ring is given individualized attention so when a machinist recommends an improvement it's taken seriously and often implemented.
Thank you guys for your dedication, hard work and attention to detail.
