Cutting Services - Machine Shop Capabilities and Equipment

Fitz-Thors-Engineering_manufacturing_CNC-milling-machine-operator.JPG

Fitz-Thors Manufacturing provides precision cutting services on a variety of materials utilizing our in house water jet and plasma CNC cut tables. Any sized order from a single part up to high volume production runs can be accommodated by the high precision systems. Our engineering and graphics teams add value by providing recommendations on designs and helping to optimize them to achieve a superior solution. Often times these cutting services are combined with secondary CNC machining, welding services, or finishing/powder coating. We operate both Manual and CNC Milling and Turning (lathe) machines.
