Elkins Machine & Tool provides decades of experience in the manufactured screw machine industry, combining an ability to design and create specialized industrial products with an attention to detail that knows no bounds.
The heavily experienced Elkins’ staff is a skilled crew that can accommodate high volume projects but is flexible enough to excel in prototype development and short-run, fast-turnover orders.
Elkins’ specializes in Stainless Steel work, as well as Steel, Brass, Aluminum, Plastic and other exotic materials. Its Quality Control Division is QS 9001:2008 and ISO/TS TS16949 certified including three full-time QC staffers and NIST and A2LA accredited standards and tracking through QC Gage Pro. Its Shipping Division moves 100,000-parts weekly without error and includes a complete package tracking and stocking (with release requirement) capabilities.
One of Elkins’ key qualities is its ability to make its own form tooling, which makes it difficult to beat when it comes to fast turnarounds. That tool making includes PEPS Wire EDM procedures that turn three- or four-week jobs into three- and four-day jobs. The company’s 11,000-square-foot Screw Machining Division is supplemented by a 8,000-square-foot Second Operations Division and a specialized CNC Division (partner Multi Machining Capabilities) located right next door. The 6,500-square-foot CNC building specializes in CNC Turning, CNC Milling, Engineering and Prototyping.
