Accumet is the name you can trust for all your critical material processing and laser machining requirements. We not only offer some of the most innovative techniques—we invented them—starting back in 1970. We pioneered a variety of proven techniques for lapping, polishing, diamond sawing, laser drilling, cutting, rotary marking, ablation, and welding that have become defacto industry processes.
We supply to a variety of medical and bioscience, RF/microwave and microelectronics, aerospace and defense manufacturers from two facilities just north of Boston, Massachusetts. We've merged our two brands Accumet Engineering, Inc. and Laser Services, Inc. recently under the name Accumet to provide a one-stop, unified point-of-contact for a multitude of project and program requirements. We will stock your ceramic substrates, metals, tubes, foils, adhesives, frozen epoxies, plastics, RF absorbers, EMI materials, etc., and will also provide valued-added secondary processing and assembly services to help optimize your supply chain. Our customers are located throughout the U.S.A. from Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Florida, to Texas, Colorado, Northern and Southern California, Washington, and Oregon.
Materials and parts can be made to nearly any size or shape, and with a variety of surface finishes. Accumet’s secondary capabilities include od/id grinding, tumbling, mechanical assembly, painting, packaging, and delivery services. You can also tap into our filled-via planarity process to reduce back and forth shipments for various steps in your circuit manufacturing process.
We're dedicated to responding to the specialized and demanding requirements of your high-performance applications. We're diligent about digitally documenting every job at every stage to ensure both lot-to-lot repeatability, and long term dependability in the field. Accumet's manufacturing facility in Westford, MA (formerly called Laser Services, Inc.) is now also Accumet 's corporate headquarters, and it is AS:9100:2015 registered. (Certificate registration No: 16677 issued October 30, 2016 by The National Quality Assurance, U.S.A.) Accumet's Hudson, MA facility will continue to be a processing operation and will soon complete its own ISO registration. The certficate will then cover both operations under the corporate entity of Accumet Engineering, Inc.
As part of our ongoing commitment to ISO and AS 9100 standards, our Laser Services facility has recently implemented new, advanced modules in our MRP software solution, E2. Every step in our design/production process, from purchase orders to production and shipping, is now monitored and controlled through a custom developed MRP scheduling component in E2. This software component has been augmented by extensive training of team members, and gives us greater foresight to predict pipeline challenges and inventory needs. It's help us achieve a dramatic increase in on-time deliveries. Our Hudson facility is undergoing similar upgrades.
Accumet's test and measurement equipment list includes our new Dragon Fire SPI-150 grazing incidence interferometer, which is capable of measuring flatness to twenty millionths of an inch (.000020''). Our Dragon Fire TS-150 Triangular sensor instrument is capable of measuring flatness from .0009'' (25 microns) to two millimeters (.0787''). These pieces of equipment allow Accumet to measure flatness from 20 millionths through two millimeters to provide optimal control over surface finishes and parallelism. Other test and measurement equipment used in daily operations includes micrometers, calipers, dial indicators, optical comparators, microscopes, and surface analyzers, to name a few.
We're centrally located near Boston and Worcester in Westford, MA and we encourage our engineering-driven customers to come and rollup their sleeves with us to work through prototyping and long-term design-for-manufacturability (DFM) challenges. You can also contact us with your application support questions any time.
We look forward to being your trusted materials and components processing partner today, and for many years ahead!
