Here's an excellent article about the value of vocational programs offered by community colleges. Growing manufacturers like Precise Tooling actively support a variety of programs that encourage high school graduates to consider the skilled trades as a career path.
This year's results included all-time high scores in:
Manufacturing is experiencing unprecedented levels of change. 5-axis CNC machining is a prime example. However, exploiting the full capabilities of 5-axis hardware cannot be achieved without equally capable software.
That’s why we partner with Autodesk®. As shown in this video, our engineering team uses PowerMill®, PowerShape® & Fusion 360® to achieve the tight-tolerances and highly accurate requirements on your projects. Whether calculating dynamic toolpaths for complex parts or designing electrodes for EDM, this incredibly powerful software enables our craftsmen to connect the dots between design and fabrication within one seamless software environment.
Building an injection tool is a complex undertaking. Every mold is custom machined in terms of core placement, cavities, cooling lines and ejectors. Knowing the variables that influence injection tool costs enable you to manage the cost of your tool, thereby making the most efficient use of your project budget.
How ISO 9001: 2015 Compares To Its Predecessor
ISO 9001 is an international standard that species requirements for manufacturer’s quality management systems. Precise Tooling Solutions earned the ISO 9001:2015 certification by demonstrating an ability to provide consistently high-quality products and services that meet regulatory and customer requirements.
The May issue of Modern Machine Shop includes a feature article on Precise Tooling. The article focuses on data-driven decision-making, and our 5-Axis Roeders Mill is pictured on the cover.

PRESS RELEASE TO BE ISSUED APRIL 17, 2017
COLUMBUS, Ind., After successfully integrating a recent acquisition and rebranding itself, Precise Tooling Solutions is pleased to announce its newly expanded sales organization.
“We are thrilled that these subject matter experts have joined our organization. The expansion of our sales and customer service team further strengthens our ability to meet the evolving needs of current and prospective customers,” noted Don Dumoulin, CEO & Owner of Precise Tooling.” He added, “Our recent investments in five-axis machining technology have created significantly more capacity for our craftsmen. We’re excited to use this additional capacity to expand our geographic footprint.”
We are thrilled to announce the addition of another 5-axis high speed mill to our growing fleet of new CNC machines. The Roeder RXU 1001 DSH is a remarkably accurate machining center, and we’re told ours will be largest and best equipped Roeder within a 350-mile radius of our facility in Columbus, IN.
We're thrilled to announce the acquisition of the ErgoStation® product line of adjustable height machine bases and workstations from Extol, Inc. h
ErgoStation machine bases and workstations have been widely used in U.S. manufacturing environments for over 20 years. The highly engineered products feature a 12” vertical range to provide optimal ergonomic safety. Additionally, both use a welded-steel construction frame. This design feature—unique to ErgoStation—incorporates an integrated bearing system to eliminate both table flexing and side-to-side frame movement.
We believe ErgoStation products are well positioned for the resurgence in U.S. manufacturing. ErgoStations are height-adjustable, exceptionally rugged, and highly configurable. They are also affordable, making this a winning combination with industrial manufacturers and machine configurators across multiple industries.
