E.H. Schwab's manufacturing facility features state-of-the-art metal forming and fabricating equipment across every department and discipline. In the office, this includes our JobBOSS ERP system and SolidWorks CAD software for tool design. CNC machine lathes and mills are hardwired, and programs are downloaded and translated via MasterCAM. Blanks are cut directly from sheet stock on a 2,000 watt fiber laser before moving to the forming operation. While CNC spinning and manual spinning remain E.H. Schwab's core competencies, other processes, such as hydraulic draw forming with modern touch-screen controls and programmable CNC rolls for cylinders are also available. Secondary forming and finishing capabilities are extensive and include punching, piercing, beading, break-forming, PEM-style inserts, weld studs, finishing, blasting and more. Our weld department is fully equipped with modern MIG and TIG equipment, and complemented by two programmable seam welders. A 6' Faro Edge Laser Scanner with Polyworks software can provide complete part inspection layered over the CAD model for clear and precise inspection reports, or can be used for reverse-engineering. All quality documents are managed via Unipoint
Every piece of equipment in our facility is capable of making precision parts from prototype to production. However, the skilled operators are the heart of our manufacturing capabilities. E.H.
