Workforce Challenge

Ultimate Machining & Engineering, Inc. in Plainfield, IL, is a small manufacturing company that specializes in precision CNC machining in addition to grinding and laser marking. The company can design, engineer, and manufacture almost any type of metal or hard plastic and has extensive experience in producing hydraulic and pneumatic components. When Ultimate heard about the availability of Incumbent Worker funding, it made plans to offer (41) employees opportunities for skills training to boost their skills and increase productivity.

Workforce Solution

The company trained employees on Vista Manufacturing Software; Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing & Blue Print Reading; Mastercam X; Quality Inspection Equipment (CMM). It also addressed quality skills through an ISO 9001-2008 upgrade and AS9100 Rev C certification, and offered internal auditor training for AS9100 Rev C standards.

The company's employees are now much more confident when troubleshooting equipment malfunctions. The Vista training for the computerized manufacturing equipment has enabled the employees to fully utilize all aspects of the software, and this has increased productivity and accuracy in its production methods.

Since the Mastercam X software training, employees can now more quickly and accurately write and design the programs that control various machines.

Outcomes & Benefits

Lynn Minarich, Vice President for Quality at Ultimate Machining & Engineering, Inc. said, “We are competing in a world market. Our customers have recognized that buying overseas and sacrificing quality is not a cost savings. I believe that high quality product is what will bring business back to the U.S. manufacturer. Current ISO 9001 and AS91000 certifications provide our customers with an assurance that Ultimate Machining & Engineering, Inc.'s products meet the highest quality standards."
