Our ongoing implementations of Lean Manufacturing, 5S, and Six-Sigma, investment in the latest equipment and technology, combined with the extensive knowledge and experience that comes from having an average employee tenure of 13 years, gives AMI industry-leading manufacturing operations.

Machine Shop

AMI’s Machine Shop has a fleet of advanced, high-speed, high-precision equipment from Fadal, Mori Seiki, Hardinge and others, including 9 CNC Vertical Machining Centers, 5 CNC Horizontal Machining Centers, 2 CNC-EDM Electrical Discharge Machining Centers, CNC Grinding and Balancing (for our Motor Production) and a suite of conventional machines to provide high-tolerance, aerospace-grade parts for our Weld Heads and accessories. AMI also maintains long-standing relationships with local aerospace machine-shops and fabricators who supply approximately one-third of our mechanical parts. We maintain a substantial stock of certified raw materials, and extended inventory of exotic raw materials used in AMI products. A team of experienced Engineers use the latest GibbsCAM software to convert our Solidworks Solid Models into high-quality, efficient CNC programs. All machined parts are inspected by our certified QC Department, with high-precision CMM equipment to ensure that only quality parts are accepted which rigorously meet design specifications.

Motor Department

Our Motor Department engineers, fabricates and assembles motors “from scratch”, providing the most durable, reliable and strongest motors in the industry. Motor capabilities include CNC machining, grinding and balancing, armature winding and powder coating, and extensive test equipment. Our Motor Department can provide custom-solutions for any requirement you may have for fractional-horsepower, permanent-magnet DC motors and tachometers.

Mechanical and Electrical Assembly Groups

AMI’s Machine Shop, Motor Dept and quality Suppliers all feed into our Mechanical and Electrical Assembly groups, where Power Supplies, Cooling Units, Weld Heads, Guide Rings and other products are hand-assembled with precision. With an average tenure of 13 years at AMI, the assemblers have extensive knowledge and experience, and each are highly specialized in certain products. From our continuous assembly lines of Power Supplies and Model 8’s and 9’s, to the most advanced custom-engineered pipe weld head, you can count on AMI’s Assembly groups for reliable, consistent, precision equipment.
