Horizon can take an assembly drawing and ship a complete, tested and packaged
assembly. Once a job has been awarded, an outline of our procedure follows:
review your print package, bill of materials and any test or packaging
can send us drawings and a bill of materials via mail or the preferred
method of electronic format. We can accept drawings in most formats. If CAD
geometry is available it helps in the programming of the CNC's but is not
then create an electronic Bill Of Materials (BOM) in our inventory system.
If you have the bill in MS Excel (or csv / tab delimited text) we can import
it directly, otherwise we will enter it. Any nested sub assemblies will appear
as indented items in the BOM and are fully accounted for. The same applies
for any "make from" items. Items not machined by us (commercials)
will have a vendor and manufacturer attached to them for procurement
test requirements or customer specifications are reviewed as well as any
cleaning, packaging, bar coding and labeling requirements.
items are machined and commercials are procured. The customer is notified of
any long lead times.
items are inspected and sent out for any secondary treatments or coatings.
Items are cleaned and inventoried. When scheduled, a kit list is created for
the required number of units to be built. All necessary items are pulled and
delivered to the assembly area.
first time through, an engineer will assist a technician with the assembly.
Care is taken to ensure all print and specification requirements are
followed. Digital photo's are taken along the way which will later be used
in the final internal assembly procedure document [Click

large]. This document is
available for review by the customer at any time but is the property of New
Horizon Machine Co. This document ensures all subsequent builds are carried
out with the same exacting standards and nothing is forgotten.
provided by the customer, all functional tests are performed on the
assembly. If not provided, we may elect to create our own test procedure to
verify the assembly meets our standards. All tests are documented and files
maintained at New Horizon Machine.
item is bagged, labeled and bar coded as necessary. The bagged item is then
packaged and shipped to the customer.
