Machines and Work Centers
With an average employee service of 16 years, turning metal into solutions every day is a way of life at Newton. U.S. craftsmanship combined with efficient automated systems to provide the best product Made Right When You Need It.
With just over 300,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing and warehousing space at our Butner facility in NC. Newton offers precision fabrication services to include Cutting, Drilling, Forming, Welding, and Finishing. In addition, Newton offers other services such as kitting, assembly, and dedicated transportation options.
Our FMC (Flexible Manufacturing Cell) consisting of a 5000W CO2 laser system combined with a 30,000 lb. 10 bay material handling tower, providing optimal capacity for a lights out operation.
Bus Bar / Flat Bar Processing
Utilizing a Bosschert system, cutting, punching, and drilling bus and flat bars are done with great speed and precision.
Cuts up to 1.5” thick steel. Geared for less precision manufacturing needs, this system is a work horse.
Another FMC (Flexible Manufacturing Cell) consisting of a Fin Power fully automated punch system utilizing a 5 stage storage tower providing minimal operator involvement for lights out operation.
The forming process is a critical step in our manufacturing process. Utilizing a Robotic Forming Cell with 3 material handling lanes for inbound / outbound product enables Newton to maximize efficiency. In addition we have (11) manual Press Brake systems (including the Trumpf TruBend 5050). Combining automation with skilled craftsmanship is the way Newton adds value to your product.
Investing heavily in robotics at Newton, the welding process has evolved as one of the most consistent operations in our facility. If custom low volume welding is required, Newton has the craftsmen to make it happen. Without a good consistent weld, the product has no chance for success
