We have taken on a wide range of projects from a simple work support to a custom stand-alone machine tool, and everything in between. We make components for turning, horizontal and vertical milling, as well as performing machine-tool modifications, and complete, specialty machine-tool builds.

Regardless of the project, we find more and more that our customers have to meet tighter expectations to stay competitive in the industry. This means tighter budgets, tighter deadlines, combining operations to enable smaller production lines and overall shorter cycle times, which makes design more challenging. Meeting all of these criteria, however, means that we can keep these manufacturing facilities in the United States, which is important to all of us at PRZ.

For milling operations, we have designed and built a large number of hydraulic and manual fixtures of various designs – including tombstone-type, window-pane, and trunion – to integrate with 5-axis, horizontal, vertical and multi-spindle mills.

For turning applications, we have designed and built special workholding chucks, jaw packages, loaders/unloaders, turret tooling, steady/work rests, and work pushers.

Regardless of the project, all PRZ products share the following:

  • Robust design for rigidity & durability integrated nesting details provide compact design and maximum clamping/locating accuracy
  • Complete analysis/review of work envelope and tooling clearances
  • Premium materials and coatings for parts longevity and select, proven vendors supply high-quality, premium, field-tested components
  • All products fully tested with customer parts in-house on PLC-based hydraulic test stand
  • All products fully supported for the life of the product
