A Leading Manufacturer of Custom Metalworking Components Based in Michigan
When Sidley Diamond Tool Company came into existence in 1956, we knew the needs of the industries we supplied were ever-changing.
Our engineers have kept that in mind over the years and focused on progressive change and innovation. Sidley is fully computerized with CAD, and our systems are able to communicate with most computers via IGS files. It is this communication that has allowed us to maintain our reputation as a premier supplier in the industry.
The Sidley Manufacturing Department - Dedicated to Precision
In our manufacturing department, experienced machinists use the most up-to-date production inspection equipment to ensure an accurate finished product. By using electronic gauges and optical comparators that achieve up to 100x magnification, tolerances as low as one ten-thousandths of an inch (.0001) can be achieved. By using strip chart recording up to 100,000x magnification, tolerances as low as one ten-millionths (.000010) of an inch have been obtained. The Sidley Diamond Tool manufacturing department works in tandem with our engineers to ensure both high-quality standards and customer satisfaction.
