Frequently Asked Questions

Can you work with a variety of materials?

Yes, we can! We work with stainless steel, aluminum, galvanized steel, pre-painted low carbon steel, and more. 

Can you handle both high volume/low mix and low volume/high mix?

Yes, we can! Our Estes Accelerator Prototype area can handle the low volume, and our highly automated manufacturing cells can handle the high volume.

Can you work on an inventory management/release system (i.e., KanBan)?

Yes, we can do that too! We can work on a system(s) that provides benefits for both of us.

What quality control measures do you have in place?

We are ISO 9001 certified and will provide a Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) run prior to production. Also, we are diligent about quality inspections at each step of the process. A part or component only moves to the next step once it meets quality standards.

Automated Fabrication Cell

Salvagnini Automatic Retrieval and Auto Store System

Max Velocity is Estes’ automated fabrication cell powered by Salvagnini. Its automated nature and advanced technology provide exceptional quality, shorter lead-times, and improved on-time delivery. The Estes Max Velocity takes cellular manufacturing to new levels. Every machine in the cell is fully automated, including the automatic storage and retrieval system – the MV Warehouse, which is the system’s backbone.

S4 Punching & Shearing

Salvagnini S4 Punching and Shearing Center

Our Salvagnini S4 machines combine the punching versatility of a turret press with the blanking capabilities of a shear. Not only does the S4’s automation provide around-the-clock activity, but customers also benefit from cost reductions that would otherwise go to pay for labor. Precision and speed are ensured through digital communication and the center’s advanced control techniques.

P4 Panel Bender

Estes Max Velocity - powered by Salvagnini

Our Salvagnini CNC P4 Panel Bender is a fully automated machine that bends blanks into their final shape. Its advanced capabilities allow it to form highly complex parts in a single setup. Unlike traditional press brakes that require different tools for different bend configurations, tooling in this panel bender adjusts automatically from bend to bend and part to part. Accuracy is unparalleled because of the panel bender’s integrated advanced sensors.
