manufacturing-support1NTMA-University is an innovative online education program sponsored by the National Tooling & Machining Association that is offered to all our employees.  Through agreements with participating colleges, our employees take courses online and earn credits toward an associate degree, as well as gain the knowledge to complete their National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) written exam while building valuable manufacturing-specific knowledge.

Unitech University is our own in-house program of weekly training topics specific to our company and operating systems.  The courses are developed and taught by experienced employees with expert knowledge in the topic.  And because new training topics are encouraged, our company skills are constantly being reinvented.  The result is that Unitech is continuously improving; and that is a clear benefit to our employees and to our customers.

Additionally, many of our employees have over 10 years of hands-on experience and bring competence through their varied backgrounds.  With confidence, our knowledgeable team of design engineers and skilled technicians will insure your project is designed right and built right.

Our engineers use SOLIDWORKS Professional to increase design productivity with file management tools, advanced photorealistic rendering, automated cost estimation, eDrawings® Professional collaboration capabilities, automated design and drawing checking, and a sophisticated components and parts library.

The latest version of Mastercam CAD/CAM software is used to program our CNC mills, lathes and EDM wires to keep up with increasing industry demands. Mastercam delivers a wide range of CAM tools for solving complex machining issues. Intelligent toolpaths efficiently target uncut areas and streamlined, multi-axis cutting, trimming and drilling decrease cutting time and improve tool life.


Quality Department

manufacturing-support3The Unitech Quality Policy is to produce and deliver on time products that meet or exceed our customers’ expectations.  As an organization we are committed to continually improving our quality processes through training and new technology.

Our measuring equipment and software are state-of-the-art.  We use a Zeiss Contura Coordinate Measurement Machine with Zeiss Calypso software for automated inspections measured against the original solid model.  A Starrett HB Programmable Comparator provides another key resource for difficult to measure features. 

The calibration of each of our measuring tools and gages is controlled on a specified recall schedule.  By implementing and maintaining our tool recall system and Quality Management Program in accordance with elements of ISO9001:2000, we insure that our quality program is effective and that it is continuously improving.

The bottom line is that every member of our team understands that quality is the responsibility of each of us.  Our commitment to excellence extends from order entry through final shipping and is part of our company culture.
