Engineering Processes

Folsom Tool Corporation has full-time engineering staff that oversees all aspects of the manufacturing process from small parts to large assemblies. Engineers create affordable and quality, in-house processes manufactured to customer guidelines. The latest CAD/CAM programs (CATIA, MASTERCAM, SOLIDWORKS) are used to create sketches and setup manufacturing processes. Digital Product Definition procedures are followed to monitor all CAD models being used to manufacture parts.
