Our Machine Shop


Listen we’re machine shop guys so when we found a description on Wikipedia about what we do we read it and knew you needed to understand what’s going on here. A machine shop is a room, building, or company where machining is done. In a machine shop, machinists use machine tools and cutting tools to make parts, usually of metal or plastic (but sometimes of other materials such as glass or wood). A machine shop can be a small business (such as a job shop) or a portion of a factory, whether a toolroom or a production area for manufacturing. The parts produced can be the end product of the factory, to be sold to customers in the machine industry, the car industry, the aircraft industry, or others. In other cases, companies like MetalisMetal have their own machine shops and have spent years learning how to create, recreate, repair or fabricate anything made of metal

The production can consist of cutting, shaping, drilling, finishing, and other processes. The machine tools typically include metal lathes, milling machines, machining centers, multitasking machines, drill presses, or grinding machines, many controlled with CNC. Other processes, such as heat treating, electroplating, or painting of the parts before or after machining, are often done in a separate facility. A machine shop can contain some raw materials (such as bar stock for machining) and an inventory of finished parts. These items are often stored in a warehouse.

A machine shop can be a capital intensive business, because the purchase of equipment can require large investments. We’re not your typical machine shop… MetalisMetal is the place that other machine shops call when they can’t figure out how to do a job. So cut out the middle man and contact us first… we’re ready for you right now.
