The difference between Essner and other manufacturing shops comes down to experience. Essner uses the best techniques for quick-turn set ups that yield the best end-product with the greatest efficiency.

Essner has continued to invest in 3, 4, and 5 axis machining capability to keep up with customer needs. With the addition of our two high speed externally loaded Okuma 4 axis mills, Essner has the capacity and capability to switch between job shop production and efficiently running high volume machining jobs.

Examples of machining runs at Essner

A commitment to investing in technology and proficiency allows our team to work at their best. As an example, watch as our strategic NC Programming on the Okuma mill enables the most efficient cutting paths, chip loads, and feeds/speeds. It makes a difference in the process time when the high-speed cutter never disengages during the run.


From there, our automated machining cells can deburr and inspect all on the machine which saves additional time during the run.
