(What We Can Do)

John and ScottI guess the common thing here would be to say something like: Phoenix Precision Plastics, Inc. has Daewoo (or is that Doosan?) high-precision CNC machining centers (a 5025, a 4020 and two moving column DVC 320/40's), high-precision 5 foot by 12 foot Anderson Stratos Pro CNC Router, Daewoo Puma 240 M CNC lathe with active tooling, then list all of their spec's - travel, accuracy, etc. - Perhaps something about what we can do in fabrication, some examples of our work, and so forth...(link to that stuff) Although that information IS important, it doesn’t begin to get to the heart of the matter. What we’d REALLY like to get across, though, is the TRUE value of what we provide for our clients, and most of that can seem pretty intangible.

For instance, John and Scott don't just look at your drawings to pedantically duplicate the features and dimensions indicated (though we can certainly do that). They find out what the part is meant for, look for things that may be changed to make it easier to produce while maintaining or even improving the functionality, make suggestions about materials, and carefully consider how we can produce it most economically. They know the histories of our clients orders and may find we have parts in inventory that can be upgraded to a new rev level. Frequently they consult with engineers in product development to help streamline the design and development process.

In order to do this effectively, they have to understand all of the technology involved, the behaviors of the polymers needed, how the part may be installed into the assemblies, alternate ways of machining and fabricating the part. And they have to take the time and make the connections with the clients to find out what they really need.
