Castings & Forgings
More About N&P Precision Machine
The precision machining of castings and forgings has always presented a unique set of challenges. First among them is the value of the raw material itself, as castings and forgings are not “off-the-shelf” items and are often difficult and expensive to replace. That is why the correct approach to machining these workpieces is absolutely critical, and the right tooling is the key. At N&P Precision Machine we design and build all of our own workholding fixtures, working in close collaboration with our in-house CAD/CAM programming department. This teamwork approach allows us to design cost-effective tooling and maximize production efficiency, while minimizing the chance for costly machining errors.
In addition to our in-house tooling capability, N&P Precision Machine has many years of direct, hands-on experience in the machining of castings and forgings for a variety of industries and applications. Our customers benefit from this expertise with top-quality products and reliable, on-time deliveries at very cost-effective prices. The next time you need precision machining of castings and forgings, remember N&P Precision Machine has the knowledge and experience you need, at a price you can afford.
Successful complex machining requires close collaboration between all the departments of a precision manufacturing company. From initial planning to final shipment, each operation must be carefully integrated into a comprehensive manufacturing plan to ensure strict compliance with drawing and purchase order requirements. At N&P Precision Machine, we know what it takes to deliver complex components and we have the facilities – from advanced CAD/CAM programming to high-tech equipment to a comprehensive, ISO 9001:2008 & AS9100 Rev C Certified quality assurance system – to produce your most demanding requirements on time and to your exact specifications.
When it comes to complex machining, our multi-axis CNC manufacturing environment, state-of-the-art CAD/CAM facilities, and our extensive experience with difficult-to-machine components is your guarantee of exceptional quality and reliable, on-time deliveries. Trust N&P Precision Machine with your most challenging requirements and let us show you what we can do.
Tooling and fixture design has become something of a lost art in the precision machining industry today. The truth is the right tooling can make all the difference between producing precision-machined components and making scrap metal. At N&P Precision Machine we design and build all of our own tooling and fixtures in close collaboration with our in-house CAD/CAM programming department. All of our tooling is built for durability and repeatability, and is designed to locate directly on a machine tool’s working surface – or datum – to virtually eliminate dimensional variance between parts.
Why does this matter to our customers? At N&P Precision Machine we believe that the right tooling is the best guarantee that your parts will be manufactured to print and delivered on time, every time. Well-designed and -built tooling injects a high level of reliability and accuracy into the manufacturing process, and is ultimately reflected in the quality of the finished product. Also, we carefully store and maintain our tooling and fixtures for use on your next order; minimizing set-ups, reducing lead times, and lowering your overall cost for a particular component or family of parts. To find out more about our tooling capabilities, and how we build quality and value into your parts before the first chip is even cut, contact the tooling experts at N&P Precision Machine today.

“State-of-the-Art Precision MachiningTechnology”
In 1997, the founders of N&P Precision Machine decided to use their combined thirty-five years of precision machining knowledge and experience to start their own contract manufacturing company. As it turned out, Walter Prodan, a machinist with exceptional skills in tooling and complex machining, and Danny Nguyen, an expert CNC programmer with years of experience in CAD/CAM systems and software, were a perfect match. Together they created a small precision machine shop that provides complex machining capabilities usually found only in much larger companies. By 2004, N&P Precision Machine had added customers and equipment and grown to occupy its own 5,500-square-foot modern manufacturing facility in West Hills, California.
