Precision Machining

Skill-Craft manufactures all products in-house in our climate-controlled machine shop. While specializing in workholding, precision and quality are what we are all about. With the knowledge of workholding and manufacturing top quality workholding devices, you can feel comfortable with manufacturing services offered by Skill-Craft.

Skill-Craft manufactures any customer supplied blue-print and uses the latest in CAD model technology with Inventor/Autocad for Product Design and GibbsCAM for Product Manufacturing.

Engineering & Design

We custom design workholding solutions to fully address the parts features and workholding application. Some companies create “custom” chucks by altering a standard item to “make it work”. Skill-Craft takes a systematic approach to design a chuck custom to you – custom to your application and custom to your part.

Whether you are replacing an existing chuck or having troubles with a current application, Skill-Craft engineers can provide you with the appropriate solution to your needs.
