We serve several world markets. Go here for a closer look.
New endeavors, new equipment, new customers, new breakthroughs - the manufacturing industry is continually adapting and improving to meet the demands of an ever-changing world. Read the news below to see how we maintain a competitive edge.
Athena is expanding! We've been consistently adding new equipment over the years and we've run out of room to add more to our original building. So we're building a brand new 10,000 square foot building on the same property and the first piece of equipment we're installing is a brand new Trumpf TruLaser Tube 5000! This new laser comes with an automatic loading unit, has bevel cutting capabilities, and Trumpf claims it is the fastest tube cutting machine in the world. We expect this building and machine to help us keep up with increasing demand, decrease our leadtimes, and broaden the features we can provide in our parts. The building and machine are scheduled to start producing by March 31st, 2019. Visit our equipment page for more information on the TruLaser 5000 or reach out to our sales team at email@example.com.
In order to keep up with growing demand, Athena Mfg., LP has added a new DMG DMU EVO40! Check out the specs on our equipment list page!
We've also added a larger powder booth so we can process the extra throughput from our new equipment. See more detail on our equipment list page.
Athena has added yet another DMG Milling Center to it's CNC fleet. The DMG260|11 Linear provides:
- High Precision due to the rigid machine bed made of mineral composite and the thermo-symmetric travelling column
- High Flexibility offered by various spindles. 5-axes simultaneous machining is realized by an integrated C-axis in combination with the B-axis
- High Efficiency by reduction of idle times. Linear drives provide 3,149.6 ipm. rapid traverses and short chip to chip times
- DMG ERGOline Control with 19" screen and Siemens 840D solutionline or Heidenhain iTNC530

As part of our goal to continuously improve and provide the best possible product to customers, we have acquired yet another fantastic machine to our shop floor. Built in America and powered completely by Ball Screw drive systems, the ShopSabre IS-612 combines a unique 1 Kilowatt A/C Closed Loop Brushless servo motors with state-of-the-art materials to provide one of the highest quality and most durable CNC systems on the market.
As we are constantly striving for the most efficient production techniques, we are always searching for tools, machines and processes that increase quality while decreasing production costs simultaneously for the customer. With a new Collision Avoidance System and Thermo- Friendly Concept ensuring minimal thermal growth, the LB3000 EX-II defines a new standard for horizontal lathe performance. Okuma's high power, high torque PREX motor delivers unparallel speed and accuracy which makes it a must- have in any top-of-the-line machine shop.
Athena is constantly striving to keep up with our customers growing demands, so we've added a new Amada HD 1003 NT press brake that features an automatic tool changing system. The tool changing system helps eliminate costly setup time, resulting in lower cost parts with shorter lead times. We are better equipped than ever to be your precision fabrication supplier. Please consider Athena Mfg. for any of your upcoming fabrication requirements.
Last winter we ordered another Makino a61nx 500mm horizontal machining center, and also a 24 pallet MMC2 flexible robotically-controlled manufacturing cell. This equipment will arrive in June. When installed in conjunction with our existing a61nx horizontal we will offer a high efficiency, world-class flexible machining cell ready to handle your highest production requirements. Please consider Athena today for your forthcoming machining requirements.
We added a much larger 18'x30' Filter-1 Hydrotron 15k cfm grinding booth to allow sanding and deburr of both steel and aluminum in the same filtered environment. As a result from a Kaizen, we installed another doorway into our paint area to improve flow. Also new is a recirculating, 300psi 180F CPR Systems phosphate pretreatment system with grade-level spray booth. The finishing touch to our new paint shop is a 12'x12'x8' Steelman cure oven along with a brand new fully enclosed silkscreen room. Please consider Athena for all your powder, wet paint and silkscreen requirements.
Due to significantly increased demand for our topnotch welding services, we have added three new 15x15ft workcells, each complete with TIG and MIG equipment so we can keep your welded part production moving. Please keep us in mind for all your forthcoming welding requirements.
We are pleased to announce that our new QMS Third-Party Registrar is Perry Johnson Registrars, Inc. We remain certified to AS9100 Rev C and ISO 9001:2008, and our certificate number is C2015-00826.
