Volute’s machine & fabrication shop is set up for short runs and one-of-a-kind items. We are a craft based custom shop, of top quality, and do not operate in the mass production job shop market. We work in all materials commonly used in industry, including structural steel, stainless steel, tool steel, aluminum, brass, bronze, plastics, etc. We also work with less commonly encountered materials like Inconel, Hastelloy, magnesium, heavy-weight alloys, composite materials, etc.
Duplicating worn-out parts is routine work for us. We can work from drawings, but usually we just reverse engineer the worn-out sample. We also make fabrications and parts from verbal descriptions, with the engineering of the part left up to us. In addition to duplicating parts, we also provide high performance parts, made with better materials, tolerances, etc. Our years of experience at building and repairing machines, in a variety of industries, has given us great practical knowledge of what material holds up the best in different applications.
Duplicating OEM spare parts is also a popular service we offer. Parts from the original manufacturer are often ridiculously expensive, sometimes insanely so. We can offer you considerable cost savings with our substitute parts, and usually our parts are higher quality than the original ones. Even in cases where we are not cheaper than the OEM, frequently our delivery time is much less than the OEM, of great value in break-down situations.
