Understand The Build Process
Check out the different stages of our manufacturing process.
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. Though welding certifications are not required for our machines, Park Industries believes strongly in this practice to build our machines with the most precise parts resulting in top quality machine integrity and rigidity.
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.
