DTB Expands Fabrication and Precision Machining Center; Bolsters Agility to Meet Market Demands
Bohemia, N.Y. – Dayton T. Brown, Inc. (DTB) announced the expansion of its Fabrication and Precision Machining Center today, with the capability and capacity to meet prototype, short, and long-run production needs. This full-service, 10,000 sq. ft. facility is located at the 32-acre campus in Bohemia and specializes in large CNC milling and turning machining, high-speed machining, manual welding, CAD/CAM programming, project management, assembly, and engineering design and analysis services. Additionally, a 1,000 sq. ft., temperature controlled dimensional lab is fully equipped to handle inspection needs.
“With this significant investment in state-of-the-art CNC machining equipment to meet new and existing customers’ complex needs, we have the agility and ability to react to the market quickly,” commented Steve Marini, Senior Vice President, Engineering & Test Division. “In-house machining, tooling, and test fixture design and fabrication complements our engineering and testing services while reducing turn-around-times and streamlining scheduling on mission-critical programs,” he continued.
Expanding DTB’s fabrication and machining center offers several benefits, including the ability to create the highest quality products more quickly and consistently as well as retaining control over all aspects of the process from design through final production. Testing and developing prototypes or customized parts becomes an easier process with the benefit of in-house engineering resources able to implement changes quickly and seamlessly. The collaboration between machinists and the quality team means parts can be verified to specifications in real time, eliminating the delays of shipping and communication between different entities. Additionally, control of product output and assurance that proper tooling and fixturing is available to support the test schedules will lead to quality improvements and reduced lead times.
