American Friction Welding is part of a family of precision machining companies working together to provide a complete manufacturing solution. The five companies share the common goal of customer success by consistently delivering products that meet or exceed expectations.
Trace-A-Matic is a precision machine shop serving the aerospace, automotive, defense, food processing, forging, foundry, heavy equipment, infrastructure, marine, medical equipment, military, mining, oil and gas, power generation, space, and transportation markets. The company’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities offer massive capacity and utilize the latest CNC machining technologies to produce complex and intricate components that meet or exceed the most critical tolerances. High-quality products machined from castings, forgings, fabricated weldments, tubing, billets, and bar stock weighing up to 15,000 pounds. The company has eight climate-controlled ISO 9001:2015 certified manufacturing locations in Brookfield, WI, and Houston, TX, and has been in business since 1968.
D&H Industries is an industry-leading innovator of precision stampings and fabrications specializing in progressive and deep-drawn stamping, tool and die making, automated manufacturing, metal forming, traditional and robotic welding, and value-added assembly. Metal products created from various materials include low carbon, high strength, low alloy steel, coated steel, stainless steel, PVC-covered stainless steel, aluminum, brass, copper, and various exotic materials. Metal coil, sheet, and blanks converted from .015” to over .500” thick with simple to complex design configurations. Supporting fabrication services include robotic welding, MIG welding, laser welding, resistance welding, CNC machining, countersinking, drilling, deburring, hardware insertion, and value-added assembly. D&H has two ISO 9001:2015 certified focused factories in Oconomowoc, WI serving both US and international customers, with a company history dating back to 1937.
American Friction Welding (AFW) is a bi-metallic friction welder of dissimilar metals and near-net-shape parts. The company uses direct-drive rotary friction welding to deliver high precision, full-strength penetration welds in the most demanding applications and industries. Dramatic cost savings result by reducing the amount of working material, machining, and surface finishing needed to produce finished metal components. AFW operates 24/7 in a 63,000 square foot, climate-controlled ISO 9001:2015 certified facility located in Waukesha, WI, providing subcontract welding services since 1986.
Cutting Edge Fabrication (CEF) is an ISO 9001:2015 certified metal fabrication company specializing in welding medium to large metal structures and components. CEF fabrication services include welding, metal forming, metal bending, plate cutting, laser cutting, plasma cutting, oxy-fuel cutting, shearing, production sawing, CNC machining, and final assembly. CEF fabrication capabilities include processing raw material to finished product fabrications, state-of-the-art laser plate cutting, high-performance production sawing, precision CNC machining, full assembly services, and quality inspection. The company has been conducting business since 1990 in Milwaukee, WI.
Machining Concepts (MC) produces high precision medium to small machined parts and mechanical assemblies as a contract manufacturer to the aerospace, automotive, electrical component, medical device, military, off-road vehicle, and general industrial markets. Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility uses the latest CNC machining technologies to produce complex and intricate machined components that meet or exceed the most demanding tight tolerances. Products machined from bar stock, castings, forgings, tubing, and billets weigh up to 50 pounds. MC operates in a climate-controlled AS9100D / ISO 9001:2015 certified machine shop in Germantown, WI, and has been providing machining services since 1995.
