AP PRECISION CAPABILITIES
Tested and developed to scale with your growing business
Our battle-tested manufacturing systems, focused on annual production volumes of 100-10,000 EAU, have been designed to provide our customers with the ability to maneuver. That means quickly increasing production as necessary, allowing for cut-in revisions as necessary without accruing tooling costs, all while achieving pricing competitive with stamping. We handle metal thicknesses ranging from thin sheet metal (20GA) up to medium plate (1.5’’). Manual and automated cells are on hand for our customers who require laser cutting, punching, bending, welding, and hardware insertion.
We have specialized machinery to process a broad range of metal alloys and thicknesses. Utilizing 4kw, 10kw, and 12kw fiber lasers, punch presses, and automated bandsaws, we can produce complex, high-volume and high-precision parts. Though the majority of our cutting machines are employed in products requiring multiple subsequent processes, our state of the art equipment can also serve as a valuable source for high-volume flat part processing.
We engage robotic weld cells, collaborative robots, and skilled professional welders to provide quality and reduced labor costs. Our senior professionals carry a number of AWS weld certifications to meet the specific needs of our customers.
Weld cells are equipped with:
- Industry-leading welding equipment
- Gantry hoists for quick and easy movement of large weldments
- A broad spectrum of jig tooling
- A dedicated jig tool room for your weldments
PAINTING & FINISHING
Finish coatings are integral for the end user’s product experience. The ability to process powdercoat, polyurea and passivation finishes in-house allows us to maintain quality, reduce lead times, and limit costs for our customers. We are also able to lean on our trusted local partnerships when silkscreen, laser etching, plating, anodizing, chromate, zinc, or black oxide is required.
ASSEMBLY & KITTING
We put significant investment and work with trusted national suppliers for assembly hardware, offering an array heavy material handling equipment at your disposal and readily available to meet your product requirements. When you shift early stages of assembly to our company, your resources can be relocated to electrical assembly and function testing prior to shipment. For products that don’t require any electrical assembly or testing, we also provide complete kitting, labeling, and packaging, so they’re all-ready for customer delivery.
We are industry leaders in providing flexibility in manufacturing for our customers. Our skilled teams of engineers ensure that production methods are enacted to the highest possible standards of quality and efficiency. We operate with adequate machine redundancy so that clients may quickly transition products from prototype to high production, making changes as required. If you’re ever faced with a supply chain shortage from your other metal suppliers, our short run services allow us to fill in.
With a state-of-the-art factory and our aggressive material sourcing plan, we can help you achieve competitive commercial pricing, so your metal components can be manufactured locally at our factory in San Diego, CA.
Our Quality Department vigilantly works to maintain the standards set by the AP Precision leadership and our customers. Truly effective management in this realm demands a meticulously systematic approach to achieve quality objectives, implement process improvements, and persistently optimize operations.
By implementing a thorough investigative structure, in coordination with our customers and suppliers, we are able to speedily and confidently assess any root cause in the event of failure. Implementing preventative measures to limit non-conformances is absolutely vital for our business. In line with the requirements of our customers, we have operated in ISO 9001 compliance since 2011 and as of Fall 2022, we are proud to announce that AP Precision is an ISO 9001:2015 certified company.
