Capabilities
 

Machining and Mold-Making
At Reuel, we operate a complete in-house machine shop with mold-making capabilities.  Our machine shop is fully equipped to perform precision machining operations using the latest technologies and equipment, from CNC milling and turning to Electrical Discharge Machining.  Our CNC machining processes provide the necessary accuracy and production capacity for high-volume, close tolerance turning and milling as well as single part or low volume prototype runs
 
An experienced staff of tool and die makers with complete CNC machining equipment, offer a full range of mold making capabilities.  Our CAD/CAM systems allow us to provide high-quality, accurate drawings for modeling and mold design as well as tool path creation.  All mold variations, from “soft tool” on prototype molds, to hardened tool steel production molds, are available. 

 
We can produce single, multiple, and custom cavity designs.  We design and build to satisfy our customers' specific needs.

Welding, Fabrication, and Paint
Our fabrication department is equipped to handle a wide variety of product applications.  We primarily build large switchgear enclosures, but routinely make products ranging from small mounting brackets to large scale manufacturing equipment.  Our equipment includes a CNC punch press, CNC waterjet, several CNC press brakes, a CNC shear, as well as a number of manual ironworkers, saws, and brakes.  We have manufactured both bolt-together and welded construction enclosures.  We also have a powder coat paint line for applying a high quality durable finish to all our fabricated products. 


Molding
We specialize in molding cycloaliphatic epoxy resin materials using the automatic pressure gelation process.  We have ten clamping presses ranging in various sizes. 

Our largest press has a platen size of 48” x 60” and can mold parts weighing as much as 150 lbs.  Our most recent clamping press was custom designed and built in-house for a specific customer application. 

We perform our own compounding and have the ability to mix our own molding resins.  We can formulate proprietary resin systems best suited to the customer’s product.  We also have the capability to X-ray inspect, thermal cycle test, and high voltage test our components to inspect for defects.

Engineering & Design
Our engineering team is dedicated to providing support to our customers.  Our experienced staff includes electrical, mechanical, and chemical engineering specialists.  The experience of our staff, combined with our broad product offering, provides unique insight into solving many of the design problems unique to the electrical equipment industry


At Reuel, w
e work closely with our customers to find the best solutions for their specific applications.  Our support can include designing special features up to designing and building complete systems.  We also have a range of testing capabilities to conduct many design and performance tests during the development phase.

Reuel uses the latest engineering software to assist in our design.  Our engineering and design team is equipped with the latest CAD capability to provide accurate and detailed drawings.  We make full use of Autodesk Inventor 3-D solid-model design program. This capability allows us to provide our customers with highly detailed 3-D visual representations of the products we produce before we manufacture them.  In addition to Inventor, we also use AutoCAD.  Our CAD/CAM programming capability allows us to quickly translate drawings from design to our manufacturing processes.

Testing
Testing is an integral part of our manufacturing process.  We perform various mechanical, chemical, and electrical tests on our products both during the design phase and as production quality checks.   We routinely X-ray inspect our molded parts for voids or defects.  We can perform thermal testing in our thermal cycling chamber for temperatures ranging from -60C to 180C.  Our electrical testing capabilities include AC dielectric up to 50kV.  Using our mechanical test equipment, we can perform axial tension, compression, and 3 point beam, as well as cantilever loading.
