SAS Manufacturing LLC has unveiled a state-of-the-art precision manufacturing facility in Englewood, Colorado, to serve aerospace and a variety of industries worldwide, the company said.
Equipped with advanced 3D printers and automated milling machines, the facility will soon offer clients a 24/7 online platform to view the status of manufacturing projects in real time.
SAS Manufacturing purchased the existing Englewood facility in 2015 and immediately began upgrading the equipment and processes to meet the rigorous standards of clients in aerospace and aviation as well as energy, defense and US government. In less than a year, the facility received AS9100 and ISO9000 certifications for quality management procedures.
In August 2016, SAS Manufacturing will take delivery of a monoBLOCK 5-axis milling machine from DMG MORI, a precise computerized numerical control (CNC) metal fabrication device. Subtractive metal milling remains an essential manufacturing process in aerospace and other sectors where source material traceability is critical.
SAS Manufacturing is a wholly owned subsidiary of Special Aerospace Services LLC (SAS), a tactical engineering firm based in Boulder, Colo. The company specializes in design, precision machining, prototyping, 3D printing, and additive manufacturing, and services the aerospace, defense, and commercial industries.
