Critical Supplier Support From P4Swiss / Lindel CNC Machining

Virtually every release and news item seen out there these days focuses on the Coronavirus / COVID-19 Pandemic and how the shutdown of non-essential business has impacted the nation. While a large swath of the U.S. workforce has been sidelined from the virus, industries like medical manufacturing, military defense manufacturing, power generation, and others have stepped up to address the emergency.  As Critical Suppliers to these industries, P4Swiss / Lindel CNC Manufacturing is working to increase production and reduce delivery times to assure we continue to serve the nation efficiently and effectively.

While operations are far from “Business as usual,” we have taken measures to maintain precision cnc production levels as we protect our staff and customers from any exposure or spread of COVID-19. On Monday, March 23rd 2020, the management team closed access to outside, non-essential visitors. This means all contact to P4Swiss / Lindel CNC Machining staff and operations must be made by appointment and approved by management as essential to operations and customer support.

Our team members have also been requested to follow a “Best Practices” approach for maintaining a productive work environment during a viral threat:

  • If an employee is feeling sick they are required to stay at home
  • If an employee is “at risk” from a low or compromised immune system, they are required to stay home
  • Employees able to work remotely (from home) are encouraged to do so until State and Federal authorities have cleared exposure protocol warnings
  • “Social Distancing” protocols have also been established within the production area and all remaining office team members are required to maintain proper distances while at work

While the news changes daily, it’s our goal to reduce the impact to your business during this challenging situation. As a Critical Supplier, we will work to support and maintain our customers’ and associates’ supply chains so you can continue to manufacture and produce the tools and equipment keeping America and our communities strong.

Precision CNC Manufacturing From Tucson, Arizona to Space and Beyond!

The team at the Tucson, Arizona CNC machining company P4Swiss / Lindel have been looking skyward recently, and for good reason. Several precision CNC machined parts produced at the Tucson facility have been skyrocketing their way across the solar system documenting one particular asteroid 101955 Bennuand they’re pretty proud of it.

“Working with scientists and engineers at University of Arizona is always an exhilarating experience,” said Tom Ferrara, General Manager at P4Swiss / Lindel. “Being able to meet their design and engineering specifications and help with the production of OSIRIS-REx took real team effort.”

CNC manufacturing for aeronautical parts requires the highest precision. That’s why, when the UA team reached out to P4Swiss / Lindel, they needed to be confident in the capabilities of their CNC machines, their CNC operators, and their entire production team. While the OSIRIS-REx component manufactured by P4Swiss / Lindel was just a single part of the entire camera array, when traveling at more than 800 miles per hour through the depths of space, every detail needed to be perfect. There would be no going back to the drawing board.

OSIRIS-REx, the aeronautical wonder-camera designed by the scientists and engineers at Arizona University, since its 2016 launch, has been speeding through space on its way to document the asteroid Bennu as well as record astrological data and images never before accessible to earthbound scientists. The housing and all of its components needed to come together with exacting precision to make sure the camera was capable of the documentation of Bennu starting from over a million miles away and proceeding up to 10 feet from Bennu’s volatile surface.

“The camera suite on board the spacecraft is similar to a lookout perched in the crow’s nest of a tall ship,” said OCAMS instrument scientist Bashir Rizik, who has been with the OSIRIS-REx nearly from the beginning in 2006. “This scout must observe Bennu as we approach, survey and recon the asteroid, and tell the ship’s navigator where the hazards are located.”

OSIRIS-REx will be the first U.S. mission to return samples from an asteroid to Earth.  The spacecraft is scheduled to bring back a sample of at least 60 grams (2.1 ounces) to be studied.

“When we think about the impact our Tucson CNC machining shop has made out there, it’s almost overwhelming,” said Ferrara. “Our precision CNC capabilities have revealed the most inspirational opportunities and we’re thrilled to see where we’ll be going next.”

From Tucson to the outer reaches of our solar system, the parts manufactured at P4Swiss / Lindel help make aeronautical research and scientific study all the more possible.  When OSIRIS-REx returns from its mission sometime in the late summer of 2023, the P4Swiss / Lindel team, along with the engineers and scientists from University of Arizona, will be able to take pride in the millions and millions of miles the equipment and specialty CNC machined parts have traveled, all in the name of science.

For precision machined parts of all kinds, including aeronautical CNC, medical CNC, optical CNC, military CNC parts and more, please reach out to Tucson’s premier precision CNC company, P4Swiss / Lindel.

CNC Market Buzz: How Will Smart Manufacturers Drive Into 2020?

If you’re like us, the end of the year means a lot of data collection, prospecting, and strategizing for the upcoming year. The predictable questions come up in production and sales meetings: How are 2019 sales? How do prospects look in 2020? Are customers buying more? Less? What about innovations? Diversification? How can we grow margins? And so on.

At LINDEL CNC MACHINING and P4SWISS, the end of the year also means spending time in front of our market, attending trade shows, and listening to the “Market Buzz” from buyers and manufacturers on the floor. Through the end of October and the beginning of November, the LINDEL/P4SWISS team spent time visiting with customers and associates during the Southern Arizona Tech + Business Expo trade shows to feel the pulse of the 2020 CNC / precision machining market and what we can expect to make it a good year. What was discovered is, while broad reports are calling for a looming depression in the market, by implementing a few strategies, manufacturers are positive about 2020 and beyond.

“We’re seeing a lot of optimism,” said Tom Ferrara, Sales and Marketing Manager for Lindel. “We just finished a record October and are looking at higher demand than expected through the end of the year. With a little strategy, 2020 is going to be a great year.”

While some methods for dealing with a soft market focus on “Getting back to basics” or pushing the sales team out in an aggressive “Boots-on-the-ground” effort, smart manufacturers can circumvent market volatility by focusing strategies around their core portfolios and market innovation at home.

One market tip suggests increasing efficiencies in supply chain and mobilizing partnerships to drive your business goals. Others include adding digital technologies (digital outreach, direct response marketing, etc.) that increase visibility and transparency or focusing on a corporate responsibility protocol to increase market reach and brand awareness.

“Any of these [strategies] require less capital investment,” said Ferrara. “While still creating a more sustainable and productive workflow throughout these bigger market changes.”

With over 32 years of business under our belts, we’ve seen strong and soft markets. All have been challenges and maintaining growth requires diligence and strategy.

However you choose to approach 2020, focusing on your core product and servicing your accounts at home is always a good answer to maintaining sales momentum and pushing growth. We have found that HOPE is not a strategy.

From custom CNC machining and the precision of Swiss CNC manufacturing, LINDEL CNC MACHINING and P4SWISS strives to bring our manufacturing customers the best products, support, and service in the industry. If you’d like more information about the products or services we provide, please feel free to contact Tom Ferrara, Sales and Marketing Manager at 1-520-792-3160, or email: sales@lindelengineering.com

5 Axis Mills Make Complex Parts Simple To Make

A lot of very good things are happening at Lindel Engineering this year including a recent purchase of our third 5 Axis CNC Mill.
 
We used 5 Axis milling (see part picture) to make this part. 5 Axis allows us to make all the features in one operation without letting go of the part.
 
This allows us to create all critical features that have relationships to one another in one operation.  
 
Currently we are backlogged for the next 4 weeks.
 
More exciting news is we are looking at adding a new division soon so stay tuned for more information to come.
 
Lindel excels at making orders for short run production work ( 25-500+ quantity per part number )
 
When you have upcoming machined parts requirements please consider Lindel Engineering.

Does Gold Plating Make CNC Machined Parts Better?

I can say that this is definitely a part that is very nice to look at and hold. While we all know that the plating makes it better by protecting the part from oxidizing, any color plating can achieve this. What I like best about this part is in the details that were achieved in making it. From the small bosses to the ramped runways needed for wiring during assembly. 

What I like best about this part is in the details that were achieved in making it. From the small bosses to the ramped runways needed for wiring during assembly.

Lindel excels as small complex short run production parts of 50-500 quantity. Please keep Lindel in mind for your machining needs.  Lindel Engineering is ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100D Certified.

Complex Parts Are No Problem For Lindel

Just the other day a customer came to us and asked if we had the capability to machine one of their more complex parts they had designed. They were in need of some parts in 2-3 weeks with several more every week after that for the next 4 weeks. Our team reviewed the project and accepted the challenge.

You can see the result of our efforts below. Our 5-Axis machine completed a majority of the features and one of our 3-Axis machines finished the base of the part to make the part complete in two operations.

This is another example of the work we do resulting in keeping one of our good customers satisfied on schedule.

Lindel Precision CNC Machining excels at making short run production parts of 50-500 quantity each.
