MATERIAL 
REMOVAL

Manufacturers can benefit from working with Eagle, a full-service supplier. By identifying bottlenecks and areas of reject creation throughout manufacturing processes, Eagle can help refine those processes and help reduce scrap and manufacturing costs. One of the first steps in the manufacturing process is material removal. This can take the form of de-burring, gate removal, and many other processes. Shown below are examples of some of Eagle’s material removal capabilities.

FACTORY AUTOMATION FROM RAW CASTINGS TO FINISHED PARTS

We have automated manufacturing processes that begin with raw materials and end in parts ready to be assembled, validated, and shipped. Whether you need an automated solution to load and unload a CNC machining center, robotically machine, or to gauge critical dimensions, we can design and implement a manufacturing process from start to finish.

LASER ABLATION

Laser ablation is the process of removing material from a solid surface by irradiating it with a laser delivery system. Eagle uses laser technologies in many applications and with a large array of materials. Our experience from laser ablation removal of paint on radio bezel buttons to circuit boards identification – we have a solution for you.
