Frequently Asked Questions
Here we’ve compiled a list of questions along with the answers that commonly asked by our clients.
Q. Who is your typical customer?
Ohare Precision Metals’s contract machining customers are looking for a way to outsource their overload, or looking to place a single PO for machining, processing, plating, painting, etc. We can supply machined parts from material to paint, or anywhere in between. These customers are from many industries including: medical device, semi-conductor, oil tool, food packaging, aerospace, defense, etc. We aren’t a captive shop, so we’ll take a look at almost any job that fits our capabilities.
Q. What is your typical lead time?
On our contract machining, you can expect lead times to vary as well. Depending on the machine availability, we’ve been able to ship parts in under 4 weeks, but it can be as long as 10 weeks depending on the job. Many of our customers issue blanket orders, allowing us to deliver parts on an as-needed basis. We can produce parts ahead of schedule, hold them in inventory for you, and ship them out the second you need them.
Q. Can you make a prototype part, machined-complete?
If you are looking for one piece on a machine-ready blank, that’s no problem. In fact, if you are unsure about whether blanks will save your machining process time and increase production, we’ll typically make a sample for you with your specific dimensional requirements.
