Why your sheet metal shop should also be an advanced CNC machine shop

As sheet metal assemblies become more complex and demand greater fabrication capability, CNC machining often is essential to achieve required tolerances. With advanced 3, 4, and 5-axis machining resources including very large work envelopes, Hardcraft can perform operations in-house that other sheet metal vendors typically subcontract at additional time and cost. Turn to Hardcraft for short lead times and most competitive pricing.

Advanced Equipment

Hardcraft maintains an aggressive investment program to ensure we have state of the art equipment. Most of our production machines have been acquired new in the last five years.

Broad Capability

We do more under one roof, saving time and money. Hardcraft’s CNC machining capabilities are beyond those of most standalone machine shops. Our paint pretreatment capabilities are more advanced than most standalone paint shops.


ISO9001:2015 registered. Full QC inspection department including CMM. Quality culture promoted throughout the company.

Superior Service

We pick up the phone. We answer emails. And if we ever get a part wrong - we will make it right. That’s our promise to our customers.

Case Study

A longtime client’s weldment product line required a standard 40" x 20" machining envelope — but when they launched important new products, the required machining capability was in the 50” x 40” range. Hardcraft invested in a new bridge mill to support the product launch and maintain our ability to produce the parts completely in-house. The new parts also required precisely bending quarter-inch high-strength steel in sections several feet long — a capability we already had available.
