How can we help you?

Are you commercializing a new product and need someone to manufacture the initial quantities as you ramp up for large-scale production? We can help. Do you have a really challenging low-volume part? Outsource it to us! Have you discontinued a product, but still need small quantities for maintenance and repair? Let us handle it. We want to be your trusted partner for small to medium production runs.

State of the Art Machines

Concepts NREC’s state-of-the-art manufacturing center features 5-axis CNC milling machines, (including a new Hermle C52 mill/turn), horizontal and vertical CNC lathes, and a Zeiss coordinate measuring machine (CMM) for precision inspection.

Best Software for Turbomachinery

We use MAX-PAC™ Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software, long recognized as the best CAM software for 5-axis milling of rotating bladed components, including impellers, blisks, and rotors. And, because we make the software, our machinist can work directly with developers to continuously improve the outcomes.
