Triangle Precision, located in Kettering, Ohio, provides close tolerance, precision machining, forming, and fabrication to many vital industries including aerospace, defense, high-speed printing, electronics, racing, medical, and automotive.
Triangle Precision contacted the Ohio MEP | FastLane, part of the MEP National Network™, to see how they could leverage automation to improve efficiency and provide more capabilities to new and existing clients in the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) supply chain. They also needed to renew their AS9100 and ITAR certifications. These certifications are critical to their business model since they are required for half of their business volume.
FastLane is the one source that I call to find the resources I need to manage my company. They understand my business and always point me in the best direction for my needs.
The FastLane team helped Triangle see how automation could improve their efficiency. Leveraging the Ohio Defense Manufacturing Community (ODMC) grant, FastLane helped Triangle to automate their new 3-axis CNC machine by adding an articulating arm and conveyor system. This created the opportunity for lights-out machining, making the Triangle team more productive. FastLane also assisted Triangle in renewing their AS9100 and ITAR certifications, allowing the retention of current DOD business and improving their ability to compete for more commercial aerospace business.
