Guill Tool has announced its intent to offer merchant machining services to the global aerospace industry. Sales Representative Manager Tom Baldock will lead this effort from the company’s headquarters in West Warwick, R.I.
For over 55 years, Guill Tool has been providing tooling for the aerospace, extrusion, medical, consumer and commercial, defense, wind, oil and energy industries. Due to its years of experience, the company has a highly skilled team of expert machinists engineers trained in the latest CAD, CAM, CFD and FEA programs.
Besides being experts in extrusion tooling, Guill is a major industrial manufacturer that can provide customers with one-stop shopping for tooling and other select machine shop needs, the company said.
Guill’s high-quality standards are evidenced by the company’s many certifications, including ISO 9001:2015. Defense certifications include AS9100:2016 (aerospace manufacturing), MIL-I-45208A (inspection system), MIL-STD-45662A (calibration system), JCP Certified (government contracting), ITAR Registered (export compliant), NIST SP800-171 (cyber security) and others.
As part of this new merchant machining program, Guill offers five-axis machining centers, high-precision machining and full wire EDM capabilities, highlighted by a .008” hole popper. Guill machines super alloys and exotic metals to close tolerances and offers state-of-the-art precision machining of many materials including aluminum, aluminum bronze, HY-80, HY-100, Hastelloy, Inconel, K-Monel, nickel copper, stainless and carbon steel and titanium.
Guill continues to invest in utilizing innovative machine tools with the most advanced automation controls and operated by experienced technicians, the company said, aiming to be a cost efficient manufacturer while adhering to a continuous improvement quality program.
Guill CNC milling machines offer resources needed to fulfill the most challenging aerospace parts and tooling to keep aircraft running efficiently and precisely. The precision of CNC turning is offered for quicker production that meets rigorous standards on short and medium runs, regardless of the complexity of the parts.
Guill multi-axis machines can produce a variety of sizes, complex engineering and geometric intricacies. Prototype machining and rapid manufacturing enable engineering to develop and innovate solutions with the ability to respond quickly and modify parts. Super alloys and other materials are offered to benefit customers who need new solutions to remain competitive. Finally, wire EDM eliminates the force put on part surfaces. This protects intricate and fragile tooling and provides higher tolerances and accuracy.
Machining capabilities range from small hole machining of .008” in diameter and machining material measuring up to 15 inches in all axes.
Typical products produced are brackets, latches, engine components, fine hole cooling channels and structural mechanisms.
