WE BUILD COOL STUFF

Regal Research is your one-stop-shop for world-class mechanical product fabrication services.

Product & Sub-Assembly Manufacturing

 

More the just a mechanical fab shop, Regal  specializes in complete Product and Sub-Assembly contract manufacturing of our customer’s products by combining our comprehensive in-house manufacturing capabilities.   We can take a product from design through completion with little or no outsourcing of parts and services; a factor that gives Regal a distinct quality and delivery advantage over our competition.

 

Product Examples Manufactured for Other Companies:

 

  • Custom High-Powered Computing Enclosures
  • Custom Medical Incubation Cabinets
  • Complex Cash & Mail Sorting Sub-Assemblies
  • Automated Ice Bagging Equipment
  • 3D Teleconferencing Equipment
  • Fleet Fueling Payment Stations
  • Aircraft Ground Support Equipment
  • Defense Mortar Tracking Units

Engineering Support

 

Though Regal is primarily a ” build-to-print” fabricator, we pride ourselves in offering engineering support that makes us a true partner to our customers. Regal’s degreed mechanical and electrical engineers can assist in the conceptual phase of product development, helping assure product integrity and low cost by design. Because we actually produce the products for our customers, we can often offer assistance concerning:

  • Manufacturability
  • Material Selection
  • Cost Reduction
  • Quality Improvement

 

CAD Support

 

We have deployed the industry’s best CAD Systems, both for our own in-house use, and to support our customers’ needs. Having these systems in-house allows us to accept our customers’ engineering data directly, without translation in most cases. We can create CNC programs directly from the engineering model files, reducing the risk of input errors, and shortening the manufacturing cycle. We also support electronic file exchange via our secure FTP site.  For more information regarding FTP, contact Brian at 888-589-9925

CAD Systems supported include:

  • PTC’s Pro-Engineer Wildfire
  • Dassault System’s Solidworks
  • Autodesk’s Inventor Series
  • UGS NX Series

Precision Sheet Metal Fabrication

 

Our high speed Trumpf CNC punch presses (featuring auto-index of all tool locations) and combination 2400 watt laser/punch machines handle the high volume parts, while our 2600 watt lasers allow us flexibility on quick turn prototypes, shorter production runs, and difficult to punch materials. We utilize a fully automatic Stopa Material Management System to allow us extended periods of unmanned, lights out manufacturing on the punches. CNC Programming is handled using Trumpf’s Tops or Metalsoft’sFabriwin software, so we can program directly from our customers engineering data.

 

Precision Sheet Metal Fabrication Highlights:

 

  • Three High Speed Auto Index CNC Punches
  • Two 2600 Watt Trumpf Lasers
  • Two Trumpf Punch/Laser combo machines (with 200 watt laser)
  • One 4000 watt Trumpf Laser with a high speed trumpf 500 punch. Integrated with automated material handling system.
  • 60″ x 144″ Sheet Size Maximum
  • Stopa Automated Material Managment System
  • Fully Programmable CNC Press Brakes
  • Brake Capacity to 240 TONS

Precision Machining

 

We specialize in close-tolerance milling and turning of small to medium size parts in a number of different materials, including aluminum, steel and stainless steel as well as a variety of different alloys and plastics. Regal regularly holds tolerances of .0005 of an inch and offers pre-production prototype services through high-volume production runs. Many of our mills are equipped with automatic pallet changers and high-speed spindles. CNC Programming is done using CNC Software’s Mastercam, which allows us to program directly from our customers engineering data.
