Custom Parts Manufacturing

Rayco of Schenectady provides custom manufacturing services to the power generation, medical, aerospace and defense industries. Our multi-axis CNC machining, abrasive water cutting, and metal finishing capabilities produce high quality non-standard precision machined parts. From prototyping through full-scale production – including fabrication and assembly – Rayco offers complete in-house production services.

Types of Custom Part Manufacturing

Build-to-Print Parts

Build-to-print parts from Rayco are based on the CAD files, blueprints or engineering drawings that you provide. We also offer Design For Manufacturing assistance for custom part manufacturing. BTP parts support precision tolerances and your choice of materials. They are suitable for prototyping, low-volume production, and for repair or replacement parts. 

Build-to-Specification Parts

Build-to-specification parts are also based on a customer’s part drawings, but include assistance and input from the metal fabricator. We help determine details like final tolerances for finished parts and how products are assembled. 

Made-to-Stock Parts

Made-to-stock parts are produced in large quantities based on your sales forecasts and projected inventory requirements. Made-to-stock (MTS) parts offer greater efficiency at each stage of the custom parts manufacturing process. For example, bulk purchasing metal for a forecast period can lock in a lower price and provide volume discounts.

Made-to-Order Parts

Made-to-order parts from Rayco support the on-demand production of specialized components. Instead of mass-producing parts and keeping large quantities in inventory, made-to-order manufacturing doesn’t begin until your order is received. This option eliminates surplus inventory, in turn optimizing your investments of time and money. Manufacturing workflows are highly efficient, but lead time requirements for MTO parts may vary. 

Make-to-Assemble Parts

With make-to-assemble (MTA) parts, we keep essential items in stock but assembly doesn’t begin until your order is received. This approach minimizes supply chain risks and can allow for customizations. With key components already in-house, delivery times are quick and consistent.
