CASE STUDY 1 - Integrating special processes

Shimco has been a full-service manufacturer for over 30 years.

CASE STUDY 2 - Short lead time solutions

Shimco received a large industrial order for tapered metal shims with a short lead time.  Machining the shims one-by-one in a conventional work holding process would have taken 6 weeks or would have tied up most machines and machinists for a few days, negatively impacting other customers’ orders.
