    We work with several aluminum extruding companies that have various press sizes and capabilities, from small, tight tolerance, profiles up through shapes as wide as 16″ and as heavy as 20 Lbs./Ft.

  • Cast & Molded
    Metal Parts

    Our foundries can produce parts from low volume sand and investment castings up through permanent mold casting to the high volume die casting. In addition to the popular cast aluminum alloys, there are several special alloys and processes that offer increased properties such as higher strength or shock resistance.

  • Plastic & Rubber
    Formed Parts

    Craig Associates works with an alliance of several different plastic forming companies, Synerplast. Each company specializes in a different forming process. The companies work together to help the customer match the best process for their particular shape and quantity needs.

Secondary Machined, Formed & Finished Parts

In addition to the above processes, secondary operations can be added to the custom components. The operations include cutting (straight and miter cuts), machining, stamping, bending, finishing (painting, plating and anodize), assembly and more. This can be an extruded cut to size piece, ready to load into a machining center to a “stand alone” part ready to be assembled.
