At Formatic, our focus is on the customer. We go to great lengths to ensure that you get the parts you want, when you want them. Most of our business is parts production. We can take your shop drawings and produce the parts you need when you need them. With rigorous inspection throughout the fabrication process, you are assured that your parts will be exactly what you require.
We can also develop product from the ground up. Our engineering department uses all the latest CAD software to design parts and complex assemblies. We can optimize a design and solve assembly problems before the parts are even run, reducing the time required to produce a prototype.
We can also reverse engineer existing parts for production using our Virtek laser scanner. Flat part outlines can be scanned and a CAD model generated for CNC programming. This same technology allows us to inspect flat parts to within +/-0.003” to assure that you are getting exactly the parts you require. Our integrated engineering expertise will help you reduce your design and development time
Trumpf 6000L punch/laser combination CNC machine. Punching speeds of 900 hits per minute combined with a 2000 watt laser allow us to produce your parts with the speed and accuracy you require. Additionally, the Trumpf features dual mode part marking. High speed punch marking at 2800 hits per minute means that we can mark part numbers or any required text on your parts. We can also laser engrave text and cut parts from the same setup. Between the Trumpf and our Strippit 1250 laser/punch combination machine, we have the capacity to move your job through our shop.
We can punch and/or laser cut sheet material up to a maximum sheet size of 60" wide by 120" long. We can punch most common materials up to 0.250" thick. We can laser cut thicknesses as shown below.
• Mild Steel: up to 0.250" thick
• Stainless Steel: up to 0.250" thick
• Aluminum: up to 0.250" thick
• Galvanized Steel: up to 0.125" thick
• Copper: up to 0.060" thick
• Brass: up to 0.60" thick
Formatic 2000 Inc. is again at the “cutting edge” of CNC technology with our purchase of a Trumpf TruBend 5130 Brake Press . It’s a 130 ton, 120” press with a very deep throat for those hard to bend parts.
We have six brake presses on our shop floor with a maximum capacity of 168" in length. With a combination of stock punches and dies, we can produce virtually any nominal bend radius. We also have a 12" and a 48" roller that will accommodate up to 14 gauge (0.075" thick) material.
CNC back gauges allow our skilled operators to produce repeatable, consistent high-tolerance parts.
Our Gasparini hydraulic CNC backstop shear will cut aluminum and mild steel up to a maximum of 0.250" thick, and stainless steel to a maximum of 0.187” thick. The shear can accommodate sheets up to 120" long. Parts longer than 120” can be slit on our laser.
