Custom Machined Parts for Small Tools

The precision of a small tool is reliant on the quality of the machined parts it consists of as well as the skill of the tool handler.  In business since 1972, Avanti Engineering has the experience and skill essential to machining quality components for small tools.  Custom machined parts for small tools are produced with tight tolerances across even large production runs of 1,000.  Avanti takes pride in the products and services offered to customers in the small tools industry.     

Depending on the application for the small tools, the tool components can be machined out of brass, aluminum, and steel.  Each of these materials has unique benefits and our machinists are equipped to recommend which metal is suitable for the small tools components.  Brass is an affordable and easy to machine metal.   Aluminum offers corrosion resistant properties and would be ideal for machined components of small tools that will be used in applications with moisture.   For parts requiring durability and strength, steel is commonly used for machined components of small tools.
