What We Do

Ewart-Ohlson Machine Company specializes in precision CNC machining of medium to large size parts in steel, stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, inconel, and other alloys. We have 60 years of experience serving the aerospace, energy, steel, and automotive industries. Our equipment includes five CNC lathes that can swing parts up to 98.5” x 256” in length, seven horizontal boring mills with machining envelopes up to 150” x 98” x 84,” and three deep hole drilling machines that can drill up to a 11" diameter hole 132” deep. (See Capabilities and Equipment List).

Ewart-Ohlson also has complete CAD/CAM programming capabilities, including CATIA software, the aerospace industry standard. This allows us to exploit fully the capabilities of our CNC equipment in order to produce the complex geometries inherent in modern aerospace design. We have also been called on to work with our customers during the forging design phase to assist in optimizing manufacturability while minimizing stock removal.

In addition, Ewart-Ohlson has a temperature-controlled inspection room with a full set of precision measuring gages and a co-ordinate measuring machine with a 60” x 48” x 36” inspection envelope. Our quality system is certified to AS9100 and ISO9001 to ensure that parts meet all customer requirements at the time of shipment.

Ewart-Ohlson prides itself in its ability to use its skills and technology to work with its customers to solve unique manufacturing challenges. Recent projects have ranged in scope from producing the extreme thin-wall configuration of mortar tubes for the Mars Exploration Rover mission to qualifying the seven-ton landing gear cylinder forgings for the Airbus A380 super-jumbo airliner.
