At DME we pride ourselves on being the “one stop shop” for your flexible piping needs. There are several steps in manufacturing expansion joints and piping solutions. One step in this manufacturing process is to machine and fabricate materials to custom specification. This process is vital in our industry where a slight miscalculation can be very costly and time consuming. Unlike many companies that must send materials offsite to an independent machine shop, DME can machine materials onsite, which in turn speeds up delivery times and creates a clear line of communication between our numerous manufacturing departments.
Our in-depth Machining Facility at DME consists of several pieces of specialized equipment and eight full time, extremely experienced employees. One employee in particular, Luis Martinez, has been working in the DME Machining Facility for 25 years and has earned the nickname, “On the Money Martinez”, for his precise cutting capability.
Our Machining Facility also has on hand a Water Jet machine, three metal lathes for machining flanges and pipe ends, two mills, four large drill presses and five metal cutting saws, one capable of cutting up to 18” diameter pipe. Alongside assisting our customers with their specific needs, the DME Machining Facility has taken an important role in supporting the maintenance and repairs of DME’s metal forming and bellows punching machines. Over the last 39 years, our machining facility has developed into a very precise, well-oiled machine.
There are several things DME does well and machining various metals is one of them. With faster delivery times, quality customer service, and a superior product it only makes sense to contact DME today and speak to a salesperson about your flexible piping needs.
