Supporting the Construction and Design of the Thirty Meter Telescope
During the planning phase, M&R Engineering was referred to TMT by past M&R Engineering customers because of our ability to solve complex technical issues as a precision machine shop and deliver on time parts. This capability became a considerable advantage to TMT when M&R Engineering was able to assist during the design phase and identify several issues on the drawings that other manufacturing companies had missed. These engineering issues would have caused considerable delays and costly remakes if they were not caught beforehand. Finding the issues prior to manufacturing coupled with an expedited delivery of over twenty custom parts within the critical deadline allowed M&R Engineering to significantly improve the building process for TMT. We believe in constant transparent communication as one of our standard CNC machining services. Our partnership with TMT led to a successful planning & building phase for TMT. We are excited to see the scientific revelations that come from The Thirty Meter Telescope’s completion.
Helping a Customer Gain Market Share
M&R Engineering helped a customer in the high-end leisure and recreational industry to greatly reduce overall system cost and increase throughput. The customer’s component was suffering a higher than acceptable failure rate in the field. After detailed root cause analysis, M&R Engineering recommended changing a multistep machining process to a single process, producing the part completely on a CNC Swiss machine. The initial increase in cost was quickly offset by reduced quality losses and reduction in assembly costs. The field failure rate went to zero, and our customer was able to obtain additional business.
Their prices are very good, they are on time on very accelerated schedules, and their quality is great. They’ve recommended ways to improve our designs, and reduce costs.”
What I truly like about their team is that they’re always good about communicating to us any production schedule or delivery changes in advance so it gives us time to review our internal planning and work together to ensure delivery of our parts is on time.”
M&R has been a great supplier and partner to us and I enjoy working with them.”
Providing Innovative Solutions
M&R Engineering has the highest level of talent pushing technical capabilities to solve problems that no one else can.
Our customer was suffering an unacceptable failure rate in a vacuum chamber resulting in significant downtime. M&R Engineering helped the customer design a two-component sealing system that greatly increased the number of vacuum cycles and substantially reduced the cost of maintenance by 90%. This innovative solution was driven by M&R Engineering’s imagination and backed by technical know-how in metal and plastic machining, and it performs very well for the customer to this day.
