What is High-Volume Production?
The term “high-volume production” can mean many things to many people, from both a supplier and a customer perspective. What does “high-volume production” mean to us here at Cass? We’ve prepared an overview (View PDF) that illustrates the types of parts we run on a daily basis. Our hope is that this overview helps you start thinking about potential matches between your machined-parts requirements and our strengths here at Cass.
Our core-machining competencies include screw machining, CNC milling and turning, Swiss machining and precision grinding. When it comes to high-volume production, our capabilities match up best with parts up to 3.5 inches in diameter and under 12 inches long. Over the years we’ve migrated toward making more cylindrically shaped parts than anything else – at times up to 8 inches in diameter and up to 40 inches in length. The best way to leverage Cass’s machining and grinding capabilities is to release orders to us in the thousands of pieces and up. Through strategic investments in automation, we are running parts with EAUs in the millions without losing a beat.
