PROTOTYPING
3D SCAN & PRINT

Discover the advantages of using a 3 dimensional digital representation of your object are using their CAD models to design and create molds, castings, and fixtures. In addition, we have customers using our 3D models in their thermoforming process. If you want to make modifications to an existing part it can save hours of time to have us scan and generate a fully parametric 3D model (SLDPRT).

     CNC MILLING
              &         
     CNC TURNING

We have invested heavily in our CNC department and currently have 15 machines. Now, all of our hard material fabrication has been taken out of conventional machining and replaced with CNC. Advantages of going with NATO SPORTY™ for your CNC needs:

  • Quick Lead Times - fast cycle times + machine availability equals quick lead times.

  • Uniformity - The output will be the same time after time, consistency with quality

  • Scalability - Enter in the design parameters and it can execute huge quantities

  • Operator Retention - We invest in and train our operators to operate multiple machines at a time

ASSEMBLY

Specializes in complex assembly that involves bringing in parts from our own production lines and bringing in sub-components from our vendors. For each new project that comes in, our production engineer and quality engineers come together to optimize the design of each production line.

​With our online tools and fixtures, we are able to assemble any product. We also maintain quality tools and gauges on the line to ensure only acceptable products can move forward in the process. 

Final assembly uses the resources of production, quality control, project management, supply chain and HR. We pool all of these resources together to ensure that every single part arrives to the final assembly line on time and with the correct quality.
