“Our customers want a perfect part and how we meet that is through our quality systems driving continuous improvement on our shop floor, taking variation out of our production system so that each part can be identical.“

- Ed Loccisano

Former VP of Administration and Strategic Planning, (Retired after 25+ years)

Closed die forming capability

Our tooling is machined in-house using software that directly integrates to our solid modeling system, which reduces manufacturing errors and improves throughput. Learn more about our tool and die shop here.

Our Steel Yard Equipment

In the past 5 years the steel yard has added 4 Tsune CNC controlled carbide cut-off saws for a total of 8 saws. These eight saws use a 12 inch round saw blade with carbide tipped teeth to cut steel diameters up to 4 inches at a rate of approximately 1 billet every 10 seconds per saw. These eight saws have enabled MFC to cut very high carbon steels that cannot be sheared without incurring quality defects. 

The Steel Yard’s major machinery consists of one mechanical Hill-Acme shear that use as much as 900 tons of force to shear steel bars up to 4 inches in diameter. The Steel Yard also operates one Hill-Acme hydraulic shear and two AMD hydraulic shears that range from 300 tons to 1,000 tons of force used to shear bar diameters ranging from 1-7/8 inch to 4 inches. In 2018 the MFC Steel Yard received 88,087,945 lbs. of steel from various steel mills and sheared 7,000,000 billets and sawed 2,700,000 billets of various diameters and weight.
