DIX Metals has made substantial investments in process-specific equipment to achieve flat, square, parallel surfaces to 0.001” tolerances of virtually any material in any size. Machine shops (OEM and job shops) no longer have to resort to in-house fly cutting or face-milling of raw stock prior to final machining.
