Engineering and Complexity
IMG has both depth and breadth of engineering. Selection of material, critical value-added external processes, manufacturing methodologies and resource planning are based on established process capabilities. Our engineers closely monitor their approach and use their findings in continuous improvement plans to establish more robust process capabilities. Engineering collaboration with our customers ensures a high likelihood of first time pass on new builds, repeatability, and total cost reduction. Our domain expertise in metallurgical, mechanical and process engineering can effectively translate challenging designs into commercially viable manufactured parts.
Complexity is what IMG thrives in when working on quick turn,new builds, or production parts. Given its long history of over 40 years in the San Francisco Bay area IMG has depended on rapid transformation of its resources to meet the demands of emerging technologies. Certainly the Silicon Valley effect has been a positive influence on IMG establishing itself as a best in breed precision manufacturing business.
VERSATILE MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS
Full rotary tables and 5-axis capabilities enable us to manufacture any item in any shape and configuration. Fourty-eight milling centers accommodate small items as well as parts up to 118" by 90". Our two vertical turning centers and ten CNC lathes manufacture parts as large as 93.5" in diameter. We maintain full manufacturing support from prototype through production. Digital photographs of every important set-up ensure identical production every time. In the last ten years, we have expanded our capabilities in order to support our customers unique design, engineering, and specialized production needs. We have shown a commitment to being highly responsive to the marketplace and the customers we serve.
Process and Precision
PROCESS CONTROLLED PRODUCTION
IMG uses Statistical Process Control (SPC) to ensure process capability (cpk's) and total cost reduction in production. Versatile equipment affords IMG the ability to work with all configurations, sizes, and material with stringent tolerance requirements. We establish, monitor, and improve cpk's for all of our equipment to ensure specification compliance, repeatability, traceability, cost reduction and on-time delivery.
IMG is certified to some of the most rigorous quality standards in the industry such as AS 9100 and ISO 9001-2008 as well as committed to Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP) on is Standardized Supplier Quality Assessment (SSQA).
IMG has established a reputation for its collaborative approach with its customers' design engineers and supply chain management professionals on metallurgical, mechanical, and process engineering aspects of their build plans. The result is open, clear, and long-term manufacturing plans that meet both stringent tolerance and commercial targets. The most ideal build plans for IMG are critical, process sensitive, high production parts with rigorous quality standards. IMG strives to compete globally on total cost reduction, quality, on time delivery, and customer service for the most complex parts and systems.
