We have long-term partnerships with major OEMs who are leaders in their field.
Deep knowledgeThe result is deep knowledge of what is required and what is possible on the part of both ourselves and our customers.
New generation of productsOur OEM customers serve rapidly evolving markets and our partnership makes it possible for us to supply the machined components so quickly that they are not a constraint on the development process.
Full serviceWe support their needs from early prototype to volume production.
Our niche is extremely high-precision machined components using difficult materials like Ultem Polyetherimide, magnesium, stainless steel, titanium, and high specification aluminum in applications where weight reduction and prior experience with similar parts is paramount.
Advanced programming and design for manufacturing for the most demanding optical bench applications. We can hold the most complex and delicate parts while meeting extreme tolerance requirements.
We have advanced metrology capabilities with numerous CMM's and offline programing capability. Our machinists are at home on the CMM doing in-process inspection and our quality team routinely executes the most challenging first article inspections.
The foundation of our partnership with key customers is our ability to make whatever complex parts they challenge us with and to deliver them on time and with peerless quality.
We have a compliment of post machining processes including blasting, tumbling, and deburring. Burr free parts for FOD free applications in optics, clean rooms, and space.
Equipment & MaterialsAs leading supplier to electro optics, aerospace, and scientific equipment markets. Our aerospace end markets include F series fighters (critical applications like ejection seats) and the Apache helicopter.
5 Axis Milling

Swiss Screw Machines
TitaniumMuch of the material we machine is in limited supply and subject to extended lead times, this makes our long-term relationship with suppliers in the US and abroad a key element in meeting customer requirements.
Finally, our standard setting Material Resource Planning system enables us to know where every part is at any time and provides visibility of delivery dates. It also allows us to identify the need for and effect any required expediting.RDS is deeply experienced in turnkey management of the entire value stream necessary to deliver a finished part, including selecting, problem resolving, scheduling, and OEM approvals for many coating technologies, heat treating, and other post machining processes.
