We are not an assembly house. Our integrated manufacturing facility allows us complete control and knowledge over all operations at any given time. This control results in shorter lead times, on-time delivery, and high quality machines.
It’s what drives today’s high speed, ever-changing world. We employ robotic welding, CNC cutting, 5-Axis milling machines, and Faro lasers for optimum accuracy and component quality. We invest in technology that will drive our business forward.
With our internal quality control system, every stage of manufacturing is checked throughout our building process with Faro Laser Accuracy. Your machine will meet our stringent quality standards and live up to the expectations of your investment.
The Build Process
Browse through the different stages in our manufacturing facility of building a machine to Park’s standards .
1. Raw Material
American Made machinery starts with American Steel. Park Industries® uses only the highest quality of iron and steel locally sourced from US vendors. The highest grade of materials are a big start to our machines’ ‘built to last’ unmatched durability. Approx 50,000 lbs. of steel is used per week. The steel that is not used is recycled. Nothing is wasted.
2. Plasma Cutting
The latest plasma cutting technology is used to cut metal parts and components for machines. This is an extremely unique stage for Park, as the KANO HD plasma cutting machine, designed and built by Park, is utilized in our own manufacturing process. It is also one of the top options for metal fabricators looking for an industrial grade CNC plasma table. Check out the KANO HD.
Machine frames and bridges are welded to the highest standards by Park’s highly skilled and certified welding team. Sizes of the weldments range anywhere from a size of a cell phone to parts the size of semi-trucks. After welding and before going to the mills, parts are stress relieved with a Meta-Lax vibratory stress relieving.
Each piece of machinery is sandblasted to promote paint adhesion and enhance appearance. Large parts go into one of our two large industrial sandblast booths, while parts less than a 6 ft diameter go into a one of our two blasters designed for small parts.
With multiple large mills and 11 total milling machines, Park bolsters tons of milling production capabilities. Included in our arsenal of milling equipment is the largest milling machine in the midwest. Our mills can machine five sides of the entire machine frames in a single setup with no indexing or moving the frame. This results in optimal accuracy and the ability to utilize monoblock designs in our products.
6. CNC Metal Lathes
These rigid machine tools shape and remove material from components as they are rotating. Park utilizes 5 of these extremely accurate and fast lathes in our process. Tolerance for parts are normally 0.005” (five one-thousandths of an inch), with some being tighter than 0.0005” (five ten-thousandths of an inch). This is 6 times thinner than a human hair!
A state-of-the-art paint line washes, dries, primes, topcoats and cures each part. Included in this process is electrostatic paint, which reduces wasted paint and ensure no spot is missed. Wash bays and large industrial paint booths are used as well.
8. ELectrical Panel Shop
Layout, assembly, and wiring of back panels and junction boxes are done in the panel shop. All Park Industries machines are ETL approved. Our wiring practices meet ETL standards and are inspected quarterly. All components of our machines are UL 508A certified.
Machines are assembled from start to finish with multiple quality checks throughout the process. All equipment is built to order – we don’t build to stock. A Faro laser interferometer is used to verify tolerances or precisely align components of the machines. The tolerances +/- .002 throughout the length of machine bases.
10. Load & Ship
With excellent communication, organization, and a refined process, our manufacturing team meets ship dates with a 99% on-time ship rate. An integrated crane system hovers throughout the facilities with 25 ton lifting capabilities for easy loading, especially machines with monoblock designs.
DESIGNED FOR YOUR SUCCESS
We design our machines with one purpose in mind: to provide solutions that transform “pains” into profits.
Fabricators have extremely valuable input and feedback, we do not just listen to it – we welcome it. Our machines are designed to improve your shop and increase your profitability. We are constantly monitoring and scanning for ways to improve, and our customers are one of our best resources.
Great machines start with rock solid engineering. We understand the importance of designing machines that not only work, but perform. Our team of over 30 in house engineers have resulted in innovative fabrication solutions.
INNOVATIVE R & D
In our dedicated research and development center, our engineers come together with product managers and put in the necessary hours of experimenting new ideas and testing new products vigorously. Through this, we create equipment that will move fabricators processes forward.
Watch The Process
The build and industrial grade quality of Park’s machinery separate them from the competition. Watch the process of one of them, the KANO™ HD CNC Plasma Machine, being built in our manufacturing facility.
North Annex Expansion
20% capacity and 42,2460 sq feet were added along state-of-the-art technology and processes in a recent manufacturing expansion. Take a behind-the-scenes look at our North Annex Expansion.
Thank you Park Industries for making great machinery that stands the test of time.
Touring Park’s facility was like art. Seeing all the moving parts working together synergistically to build such amazing machines was almost majestic. You can see where the quality comes from.
They are very solidly built, rugged pieces of equipment. Very little downtime in the 15+ years we’ve operated Park machines.
Slabworks of Montana
The quality of the equipment is outstanding, especially compared to other competitive equipment we’ve had in the past.
The equipment is top quality. We’ve been running strong for over 5 years with very little issues. There hasn’t been a day we’ve actually physically been down. Absolutely exceptional.
Kruse's Natural Stone & Tile
Our Park Industries® machines simply don’t cause us problems…they’re always up and running. I never worry about our [Park Industries] stone machines.
