New Dimensions Precision Machining, NFPA’s latest member, has a rich history in the fluid power industry dating back to 1987. The new supplier is a global sourcing leader/solution for precision CNC machined hydraulic manifolds/valves, castings and cylinder components with capabilities including prototyping, on-demand machining and high-volume production utilizing over 90 pieces of equipment.
Received our new Makino A61 4-axis HMC with 218 tools.
Installation complete on our new Zeiss Contura programmable CMM.
Happy to have been able to help South Dakota State University’s Agriculture and Biosystems Engineering Department by donating some manifolds for their hydraulics training test stand. A great new tool to expand student interaction with hydraulic systems and train the next generation of fluid power engineers.
A video tour of our facility and capabilities.
Some donuts and bagels to thank all our employees for a good January. 2021 off to a good start.
ND has worked with Dura-Bar on many successful projects to save our customers money. Improved machinability reduces cost when switching parts made of common steels to use continuous cast ductile iron instead. This success was shared in the January ’21 edition of Fluid Power World.
Our new mill turn machine is in full operation. These hydraulic manifolds with multiple internal angled connections are being machined complete in one operation. The bar-feeder and accumulator table provide hours of un-manned operation for cost effective production.
A very successful completion of our recertification audit marks our 15th consecutive year as an ISO9001 certified company!
ND was happy to support the Iowa State Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering program by donating a machined hydraulic manifold valve block for their Dynamic Tire Testing project.
“We are currently going through a major development phase in our lab facilities building on our strong programs in agricultural and off-highway machinery system engineering. This particular valve block will be used in our Single Tire Tester (see photo below) will be used to load tires and investigate their response under different loading conditions and to estimate tire parameters for used in the modeling of tires.
Additionally, we train over 200 students each year in our fluid power courses supported with hands-on training in the Danfoss Fluid Power Laboratory. Our engineering and technology programs turn out excellent students who make an impact in the marketplace. “
-Professor Stewart of the Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Department
