Lean Manufacturing

JACO thrives in the competitive global manufacturing landscape. We use lean principles to discover and control variability in our processes. We continuously improve our processes to eliminate waste and deliver superior value to our customers.

Equipment

JACO invests in advanced machine tools with automation features that allow us to machine complex parts in fewer steps with minimal labor cost.

  • 3-Axis and 5-Axis CNC Horizontal Mills are setup for multi-sided machining of multiple parts at time. Extended run cycles, monitored tool life and reliable accuracy enable us to run these machines lights out to increase capacity and reduce costs!
  • Multi-Axis Turn/Mill centers are bar-fed for continuous operation and can machine parts with high complexity and close tolerances – front and back side in a single operation.
  • Swiss Screw machines produce super precision and long slender parts ideal for medical application, such as surgical instruments.

 

  • Automated centrifugal and vibratory tumblers finish parts in an efficient and consistent manner.
