SKM Industries Inc. is your source for quality CNC machining for metal parts, plastics, and high precision
assemblies. With mechanical engineers on staff, we give you the benefit of over 30 years of industry experience and the latest in
equipment and computer technology.
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.
Since our establishment
in 1992, SKM Industries has built a strong industry reputation for providing highly accurate, quality
parts with a high level of customer service and attention. All equipment is networked to a central
CAD/CAM system for efficient programming, using DXF and IGES files or blueprints, and verified using
3-D rendering before machining. Continuous maintenance support from our CAD/CAM manufacturers provides
automatic and software upgrades.
Integrated Information Management
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 a paperless shop floor. With iPads and touchscreens on all workstations tied
into the central server, our system facilitates the information flow throughout the company with
complete traceability and document control. 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.
SKM Industries is proud to announce its commitment to the
movement towards a greener future. 70% of the shop's power consumption is fulfilled as a result of
nearly 8000 square feet of solar panels mounted on our facility rooftop. Because of our custom
ERP system, iPad portals are mounted on all work stations. This allows for a paperless
Capabilities and Equipment
To ensure technological advancement, all equipment is upgraded on a regular basis, leaving
nothing older than ten years.
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.
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.
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 for machining accuracy and inspection.
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
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
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.
Moreover, 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.
In addition to dimensional verification, 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.
