PROCESS

Here at Sicom we follow a proven Quality Management System (QMS) from drawing review to delivery to ensure fabrication of exact-to-spec components. We strive for premium precision machining and product quality everytime.

CAD

AUTO-CAD and SOLIDWORKS are primarily used for prototype models. We can take any form of input from sketch data to existing CAD drawings and create the geometric specs required for your prototype. We can also assist you with engineering to add any new required functionality to your existing component.

CAM

CAM is the process used to program the machine tool path. We use a variety of CAM software to accomplish this including MasterCam and Gibbs. Precision and efficiency are our priorities and using multi-axis rendering provides significant accuracy and detail.

MEASURING

Our large format Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs), capable of measuring up to 4m (12ft), are laser calibrated every year to ensure absolute precision accuracy to  0.0002“. The CMMs provide automated inspections of complex machined components and generate a computerized file, thus significantly reducing the impact of human error providing a false inspection reading.

 

For replacement parts, our CMM will encircle your component, automatically probing and recording exact dimensions. The result will be a 3D digital CAD model used to program and machine an exact replica part.

MACHINING

We machine parts from several materials including specialty forged stainless steels, N50, Titanium, and Inconel . With the use of late model 3, 4, 5 axis machining centres, Sicom can produce the most accurate parts possible. Running multiple machines at once allows for the highest possible throughput, reduced labour costs and the quickest turnarounds.
