CAB Incorporated, a premier source of domestic and offshore precision machining services, bridges the quality gap from the U.S. to their overseas partners. For over 30 years they have been providing wind tower and hydraulic cylinder components, industrial castings and forging, steel pipe flanges, valve bodies, and much more to the water, wind, oil and gas, railroad, mining, and construction industries, as well as OEMs.

CAB precisely machines alloys, steels, irons, aluminum, and bronze parts and components up to 276” in diameter and to tolerances of ±.0005” when required. Using their CNC vertical turning lathes, horizontal machining centers, and gantry lathes, they are able to provide a host of precision machining processes: milling, boring, threading, thread and gear cutting, counterboring and countersinking, pocketing, facing, and reaming, to name just a few. These highly accurate 5-axis machines include bar feed automatic loading to enable high production and lower prices per part. Fixturing, or the secure clamping of cast, forged, and bar components during machining, is accomplished by means of three-jaw and four-jaw chucks. All turning, tapping, broaching, parting, and cutting processes are inspected both in process and post production using a coordinate measuring machine. Non-destructive, hardness, X-ray, and metallurgical and failure analysis testing services are also available. CAB’s Six Sigma (Black Belt) trained quality control experts define, measure, and analyze all processes and products to ensure only the finest parts and components reach their customers. Final documentation takes the form of material tests, dimensional inspections, and heat treatment charts, and the results of FMEA and PPAP testing. CAB customers can also avail themselves of available pattern shop, kitting, design fixturing, and gauging services.

ISO 9001 and 14000 certified, CAB performs short to high volume runs that conform to a wide range of industry standards, including QMS TS 16949, ASTM, ANSI, and those consistent with MRP/ERP. Proponents of lean manufacturing production practices, CAB can accommodate AutoCAD, SolidWorks, and Pro/E formatted CAD files.

CAB's array of equipment combined with their extensive knowledge and expertise has deservedly earned them a worldwide reputation for precision machining. Contact them for more information, or review the following table.
