Precision Machining

Dufrane now has full in-house machining capabilities which enables us to add value to our custom electromagnetic solutions – not only providing you with the highest quality windings and custom transformers to solve your power system challenges, but also providing you with a more complete product.  Our machining capabilities have expanded, and we now offer the ability to be a stand-alone resource for precision machined parts.

Machining Center

Dufrane Technologies Machining Division is capable of machining a wide array of parts not just for our Electromagnetics customers, Dufrane Nuclear Shielding Customers, etc. – but also for other manufacturers who need affordable precision parts.

From custom low volume jobs – such as fixtures, prototypes and “one-off” development projects –  up to high production jobs and custom lot sizes in between.

We have the ability to work with many different materials – including but not limited to plastics, aluminum, copper, brass and an assortment of different grades of steel.

Dufrane has a “project management” mentality, and we prefer to keep an open line of communication and transparency with our customers in order deliver a finished product that is precise, accurate and on time.


The machinery we have includes:


A tool room 3 axis CNC mill that has a max bed travel capacity of 30”x12” and can drill, tap, ream, mill, slot, engrave text and a series of other applications on both simple and complex parts. This mill is capable of producing in all quantities to strict tolerances.


A CNC lathe with an 8” chuck and a max bed capacity of 48”. This lathe is capable of turning, boring, drilling, tapping, grooving and threading on simple and complex parts as well. It can hold and repeat to very strict tolerances to within a few tenths in all quantities.


A 2 axis CNC mill with a hand operated z axis. This mill can be programmed for milling, drilling, tapping, reaming, slotting, as well as various other applications. Great for making fixtures and small lots of parts. Holds tight tolerances and holds repeatability.


A 3 axis CNC mill with a max bed travel of 12”x10” which can be programmed for milling, drilling, tapping, slotting, reaming and various other applications. Can hold and repeat tight tolerances. Good for running small job lots, 1-piece orders and production lots.


A CNC lathe with live tooling and a 6” chuck with a max z axis travel of 16 inches. Can turn, groove, slot, drill, bore, tap, thread and a variety of other applications. Great for jobs of all quantities. Can hold tolerances to within a few tenths and has excellent repeatability.


We also utilize hand operated Bridgeport Mills, bandsaws and parts tumblers for cleaning and deburred parts. Also skilled in hand deburring parts, ensuring that we deliver a beautiful and accurate machined product every time.
