Automation

Talbar Inc was founded in 1968 by Thomas L Parks Sr. Today over 50 years later the company is still a Parks family owned and operated business. Decades of experience in tooling, fixturing, die work, automation and electronic assembly has made Talbar Tool & Die a trusted source for tooling and machined components. We manufacture and build to print for a large array of industries.
  • High Speed Electronic assembly Equipment
  • Conveyor systems/Board Handling
  • Robotics/Automation/Positioning systems
  • Electronic Connectors
  • Antennas

Capabilities

Talbar Tool & Die possesses a very diverse range of skill sets and capabilities. Our tool room is fully staffed with Journeymen toolmakers, each boasting 30 plus years experience in the trade. Our Toolmakers have the ability to conventional mill, grind and edm which give us great flexibility and success in our quick turn capabilities. The combined equipment and personnel in the CNC Milling and Turning departments is able to support prototype thru production level builds at highly competitive pricing. Every job is treated the same whether it be prototype, job shop or production level work. Quality is enforced at every step of the process and no job ships without a fully complete inspection report.
  • 3, 4 & 5 Axis Milling (Work envelopes are maximum of 25” X-Axis, 50” Y-Axis, 30” Z-Axis)
  • Multi axis turning with live tooling
  • Large Custom Grinding (Work envelope up to 48” X 96”)
  • Precision ID/OD and Form Grinding
  • Ram EDM and CNC Ram EDM (Work envelope 10” X 16”)
  • Wire EDM (Work envelope 24” X-Axis, 16” Y-Axis, 15” Z-Axis)
  • CMM Inspection (Work Envelope 36” X-Axis, 56” Y-Axis, 20” Z-Axis)

Precision Tooling

The milling department at Talbar utilizes 2 Axis NC controlled mills that minimize programming and setup time. Our Grind department is capable of maintaining tolerances within .0001 on profile and position. Radius dressers, magnetic squaring blocks, magna signs, indexable grinding fixtures, whatever the customers job requires, we have the support equipment to get the job done. We utilize the Dedtru system for centerless grinding and Moore Jig Grinders for other precision ID/OD Grinding. Our Ram EDM department can design and build any electrode no matter how challenging the application. Our CNC Sinkers offer exceptional accuracy with efficient erosion time. The wire edm department can cut with wire as small as .006 diameter, in steel or carbide applications. All these assets combined with experienced toolmakers enable us to be competitive with any market in the United States.
 

General Machining and Precision Milling and Turning

Many of our customers have a need for low cost finish milled parts requiring nothing more than a rust preventative or wear resistant plating. We have machining cells specifically designed to meet those needs while still applying the same high quality standards and procedures that we provide on all products manufactured across the company.
 
For those customers requiring high precision milling and turning, we have cells tailored to meet those needs. We are able to finish mill and turn within .0002 on feature size and .0004 on true position. We excel in Hard Milling and turning tools steels up to 62 RC. We also have experience milling carbide in certain applications. With these capabilities we are able to eliminate costly grind operations before and after heat treat, resulting in cost savings to the customer and shortened leadtimes.
 

Quality

The Talbar Tool & Die quality process starts at receipt of customer P.O. No job is put in the system until Revision on P.O. matches that on the drawing. From there an internal shop order number is assigned to a router containing the manufacturing processes that the job must go through. That is attached to the customer drawing and released to the floor. Every operation from receipt of raw material, through any applicable outside processes and manufacturing processes must be signed and dated at time of completion before job is permitted to proceed. That signifies that operations were completed in accordance with print specifications. Operators are responsible for in process inspection but all new jobs must go through First Article inspection procedures. Every job whether it is repeat or new gets a complete inspection after completion and every customer is supplied an inspection report with shipment of product.
