Looking for a Machined Parts Manufacturer? Consider These Qualities Before Signing on

The Importance of Choosing a Reliable Machined Parts Manufacturer

CNC machining is a staple of modern American manufacturing due to its extreme accuracy, automation, and cost-effectiveness. If your business relies on machined parts to keep operations running, you know you need a machined parts manufacturer you can rely on.

Choosing the wrong machined parts manufacturer can result in increased lead times, spiked costs, and even equipment failure. With your time and money on the line, it’s important to carefully consider all your options before signing on with a potential partner. Consider these qualities when interviewing manufacturers to ensure you’ll receive high-quality, accurate parts.

What to Look for in a Machined Parts Manufacturer


The biggest indicator of a quality machined parts manufacturer is experience. If your prospective company has years of experience in the machined parts industry, it’s likely you’ll receive quality parts and enjoy short turnaround times.

Aztalan Engineering has almost 50 years of experience making machined parts for various industries. No parts are too difficult and no assembly is too complex for our experienced team. Over the years, we’ve assembled an impressive list of state-of-the-art software and equipment, and we know how to use it to quickly and accurately produce parts for your specific application.

Industry Certifications

Keeping up-to-date industry certifications demonstrate a commitment to quality. At Aztalan, we keep ISO 13485 and ISO 9001:2015 certifications, which hold us accountable to rigorous quality standards. 

ISO 13485 specifies quality management systems for medical devices, which we often produce via CNC machining techniques. The certification specifies requirements for us to provide medical devices that consistently meet customer and regulatory requirements.

ISO 9001:2015 specifies requirements for a quality management system for parts outside of the medical industry. It ensures we provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements and aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective use of the system.

Our commitment to quality doesn’t stop with our industry certifications. Every one of our employees takes pride in our organization’s skill and workmanship. We are all responsible for understanding and supporting our unique roles in the Quality System. In fact, we’re so dedicated to quality that the State of Wisconsin has recognized us as a Certified Precision Machine Shop.

Turnkey Manufacturing Capabilities

You’ll want to work with a company that can support you from the beginning of the process to the end. The last thing you want to do is outsource a portion of the manufacturing process because your chosen partner can’t complete the job.

At Aztalan, we offer turnkey manufacturing services, making us a one-stop-shop for your machined part needs. We offer CNC milling, turning, and Swiss turning capabilities, along with soldering and brazing, engineering support, ultrasonic cleaning, and assembly services. When you work with us, you’ll know the full process is taken care of.

Capable of Delivering Tight Tolerances

Machined parts must be accurately produced to avoid equipment failure. That’s why you want to work with a partner who can deliver parts with tight tolerances. At Aztalan, our experienced workforce is dedicated to providing tight-tolerance parts, reducing the chance of equipment failure in the field.

Accurate, Competitive Pricing

A quality machined parts manufacturer will work to keep prices competitive. At Aztlan, we believe that the prices we charge for our services directly relate to the benefits you will receive. 

To maintain competitive pricing, we routinely conduct thorough time study analyses that include setup, process, and tooling for all necessary operations and materials. We calculate machining, testing, and material handling times based on known feeds, speeds, and part density rates. That total is then factored by the company’s burden rate and profit margin, which is factored again based on market value. Using concurrent engineering with DFMA software, we can optimize part features, materials, and design workflow so parts fit into an efficient profile and process to lower cost. It reduces costs both for our customers and for us, which makes it easy to provide you with total price transparency.

For almost 50 years, Aztalan Engineering has exhibited a near-fanatical commitment to superior workmanship, absolute quality, cleanliness, and on-time delivery. Because of that commitment, our parts are found all over the world in medical, robotics, and oil and gas applications, just to name a few. We understand that people’s lives depend on our machined parts, which is why we uphold the strictest standards for our workforce. If you’re looking for a machined parts manufacturer, we would be honored to support your operation.
