Precision Machining

ULC’s precision machining occurs in what we call “The Service Center.” Here is where we machine all types of materials—and create all types of geometries! Our exhaustive equipment and focus on continual improvement means we are constantly investing in ourselves and our customers. We will help your blank design become a reality, be it cylindrical, flat, a prism, or in need of holes, channels or notches. Our machinists are striving to achieve different surface finishes, from rough grit to fine, ready to move to the next phase of its life cycle. Through the way our shop is laid out and capitalized, we strive to have the capacity to handle projects of any quantity. From single pieces to hundreds of thousands, from 4mm to 600mm in diameter. Whatever the raw material will allow, we will machine it.

Our blanks may not just be for polishers—do you need a light diffusion glass with a super fine finish? We can achieve very smooth roughness blanks to meet your precision lighting needs.

Because we hold such a large inventory of glass and equipment, along with a highly skilled staff of machinists and operators, we can get parts to you fast. Are you in a pinch on something and need blanks quick?
