SSF is a 24/7 precision sheet metal facility with a fully engaged management team and a committed and skilled work force. Our ISO 9001 registered quality management system enables us to maintain consistency in a structured environment across shifts while continually improving our products and processes. We have a state of the art all Amada facility with 26 machine centers ranging from 20 ton to 170 ton, including laser/turret punch machine centers, stand alone lasers, turret punches and press brakes. Robotics are employed in forming and welding operations. Within the manufacturing area we have a dedicated assembly cell which was designed using lean manufacturing methodology and is intended to be adjusted for multiple line configurations. It is interchangeable to accommodate rapid changes in production schedules and platform types. We also have a 4,000 square foot mezzanine for light assembly of finished parts and for off-line assembly of sub-components that are kitted and seamlessly integrated into our main assembly cell.
Our powder coat facility is adjacent to the assembly cell and work flows directly into the assembly area from the powder coat area via a conveyor system. Our 16,000 square foot powder coat facility includes a fully automated conveyorized line that is equipped with the latest in current technology. Furthermore, the line was designed to accommodate a base coat and top coat in a single line cycle for increased efficiencies and reduced production lead times.
Our customers expect and demand a sustainable and consistent powder coat finish able to handle the most challenging environments while meeting the highest quality standards. SSF realizes that a good finish starts with an effective pre-treatment process. All stages of our pre-treatment are monitored, controlled and documented using SPC control methods. Records are kept on file for review. Whether you are requiring salt spray tests, CIELAB measurements, ASTM destructive / nondestructive tests, or just good old fashioned workmanship standards, we can deliver.
