A paperless shop floor
SKM Industries' Custom Information System is
designed to manage and integrate data for each customer work
order. We run a unique complete information management system allowing
for an entirely paperless shop floor.
All customer data, such
as quality assurance specifications, part materials, or processes
is organized and stored into this system, easily accessible upon
request or for repeat orders.
With iPads on all workstations tied
into the central server, our system facilitates the information
flow throughout the company with complete traceability and document
SKM is committed to quality and excellence. We set the
highest standards for ourselves, enabling us to meet
and exceed our customers' exacting specifications,
regardless of whether that involves an independent
consultant or a major corporation.
Our Green Initiative
SKM Industries is proud to announce its commitment to
a greener future. Today, 70% of shop power consumption
relies on 8,000 square feet of facility-mounted solar
panels, and the custom ERP system allows for an entirely
paperless shop floor.

To ensure technological advancement,
all equipment is upgraded on a
regular basis, leaving nothing older
than ten years. All equipment is networked
to a central CAD/CAM system for efficient
programming, using solid models or blueprints,
and verified using 3-D rendering
before machining. Continuous maintenance
support from our CAD/CAM manufacturers
provides automatic software upgrades.
CAD/CAM system for programming is available at each machine on laptops. Each computer is connected to the central server with wireless uploading capabilities of programs to the machines on the fly. Design and program changes can be incorporated instantly.
MAZAK TURNING CENTERS
Our five Mazak Turning centers are capable of holding dimensions within 0.0001” continuously throughout the production run, eliminating the need for grinding on most applications. These are equipped with bar feeders, tool touch probes, and automatic tool life management.
HAAS MILLING CENTERS
Our 10 HAAS milling centers, ranging from DT-1 to VF2SS to VF3SS, are equipped with tool touch and spindle probes to facilitate accuracy and speed. We are able to probe parts 100% for machining accuracy and inspection.
MICRO VUE AUTOMATION
Our Micro-Vu fully automated CMM for optical and probe inspection allows for the capability of inspecting first articles and final and in-process inspections within a matter of seconds. The simplicity and efficiency of keeping a part on the CMM table and running the part program to retrieve the inspection results provides our customers with the best possible value.
Quality Control Management
Inspection travelers and prints, along with the necessary information,
are available through iPad portals at our production and quality stations
for machine operators and quality assurance personnel. Documents are
available live at all stations from our ERP Server, eliminating the need
for document control.
PRODUCTION-RUN DIMENSION CONTROL
Production tolerances are always set from 60% to 70% of the
print tolerances to ensure the parts are as close to nominal dimensions
as possible throughout the whole production lot. Each part is inspected
by operators under 4-10X magnification as part of the manufacturing process.
ADDITIONAL QUALITY ASSURANCE
Our routine quality assurance
process includes inspection of cosmetics, finishes, and packaging of
the parts. We can meet or exceed MIL-I-45208 system compliance.
Technology is making rapid advancements in the manufacturing industry. Our goal at SKM Industries is to remain at the forefront of these changes, giving you the advantage of high efficiency and precision, resulting in overall cost effectiveness and unsurpassed quality.
