Sixty years of technological evolution have driven significant changes at Teton Machine Company. From cam operated screw machines with exposed tooling spewing oil in the basement of a house in Jackson Hole, Wyoming to cobot attended CNC machines operating lights out in Payette, Idaho remaining competitive has required adopting and learning the latest technology.
Until recently Teton Machine Company has exclusively utilized technology which precisely removed material from bars or blocks of raw material. We’ve been working to keep ourselves current with a technological evolution that began with mankind learning to fashion knives and spear points from rocks. Over the millennia we’ve refined raw materials and manufacturing methods allowing us to achieve amazing feats like space flight and Magnetic Resonance Imaging We’re proud to have manufactured parts for both of those industries.
Teton’s most recent added technology takes a new approach to an old problem by strategically adding raw material instead of removing it. Additive manufacturing or 3D Printing has been around since the mid-1980s and has grown from a novelty into a legitimate manufacturing method. As a manufacturing method it offers advantages like the potential to use less raw material and the ability to produce some features that are very difficult to machine, grind or mold. For the moment it also has some limitations. Raw material selections are limited and the process is too slow for high quantity production.
We’re looking forward to utilizing this new technology to improve our business and better serve our customers.
