West Warwick (Rhode Island): For over 55 years, USA’s Guill Tool has been providing tooling for the aerospace, extrusion, medical, consumer and commercial, defense, wind, oil and energy industries.
Due to its years of experience, the company has a highly skilled team of expert machinists engineers trained in the latest CAD, CAM, CFD and FEA programs. Besides being experts in extrusion tooling, Guill is a major industrial manufacturer who can provide customers with one-stop shopping for their tooling and other select machine shop needs.
Now, the company announces its intent to offer merchant machining services to the global aerospace industry. Tom Baldock will lead this effort at Guill. He is based at the company’s headquarters in Rhode Island.
The Guill high quality standards are evidenced by the company’s many certifications, including ISO 9001:2015. Defense certifications include AS9100:2016 (aerospace manufacturing), MIL-I-45208A (inspection system), MIL-STD-45662A (calibration system), JCP Certified (government contracting), ITAR Registered (export compliant), NIST SP800-171 (cyber security) and others.
As part of this new merchant machining program, Guill offers 5-axis machining centers, high precision machining and full wire EDM capabilities, highlighted by a .008” hole popper. Guill machines super alloys and exotic metals to close tolerances.
They offer state of the art precision machining of many materials including aluminum, aluminum bronze, HY-80, HY-100, Hastelloy, Inconel, K-Monel, nickel copper, stainless and carbon steel and titanium.
Guill continues to invest in utilising innovative machine tools with the most advanced automation controls and operated by experienced technicians. Guill Tool endeavors to be a cost-efficient manufacturer while adhering to a continuous improvement quality programme.
Guill CNC milling machines offer resources needed to successfully fulfill the most challenging aerospace parts and tooling to keep aircraft running efficiently and precisely.
The precision of CNC turning is offered for quicker production that meets rigorous standards on short and medium runs, regardless of the complexity of the parts.
Guill multi-axis machines can produce a variety of sizes, complex engineering and geometric intricacies. Prototype machining and rapid manufacturing enable engineering to develop and innovate solutions with the ability to respond quickly and modify parts.
Super alloys and other materials are offered to benefit customers who need new solutions to remain competitive. Finally, wire EDM eliminates the force put on part surfaces. This protects intricate and fragile tooling, plus it provides higher tolerances and accuracy.
Machining capabilities range from small hole machining of .008” in diameter and machining material measuring up to 15 inches in all axes.
Typical products produced are brackets, latches, engine components, fine hole cooling channels and structural mechanisms.
