Precision Components

An accuracy of less than one-thousandth of a millimeter

With unwavering dedication to innovation and no-nonsense entrepreneurship, NTS is one of the few in the world that can manufacture parts under an accuracy of (less than) one-thousandth of a millimeter. And in a market where products and components are getting smaller and smaller, that is a welcome quality to possess.

With our focus on accuracy, cleanliness, and repeatability, we serve our customer and contribute to the quality of their manufacturing processes. How? By delivering ultra-high-precision quality. Every time.

One-stop-shop for Precision Components

For our customers, we produce complex precision components for high-mix, low-volume, high-complexity markets such as semiconductor and the analytical market. We offer a broad range of state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities, such as ultra-precision machining (milling, turning, measuring, wire EDM, sink erosion, and grinding) and joining techniques such as vacuum soldering. On top of that, we are capable of machining high-precision components of a broad range of materials, such as Stainless Steel, Aluminum (also RSA-443), Titanium (up to Grade 6), Tool steel, Invar, Molybdenum, Inconel, Mu-metal and soft iron. These qualities, taken together with our expertise in cleanroom assembly, make us a one-stop-shop when it comes to creating precision components for OEM’s.

No White Noise

But what does being a one-stop-shop actually mean in practice? That’s simple. In the past, customers needed to have different suppliers to make desired parts. Now, at NTS we can do about 95% of what is needed in-house. The result of that is that production of precision components no longer depends on external suppliers, white noise is diminished, and quality is guaranteed. We often compare it to the classic game of whispering a story one-on-one in a queue: person A whispers a story to person B, person B whispers the same story to person C, and so on. The more people that are involved, the more the story transforms because of white noise. Having a lot of suppliers involved in your production process is the same principle. Long story short: supply chain challenges are overcome because at NTS, we take over the supply chain in-house.

“A few years ago, we defined a technology roadmap and invested in machines that make it possible to make these ultra-precise products and components.”

Technical expertise leads to repeatability

Having all know-how at one place ensures that products are from high quality, continuously. The most important outcome of this way of working is repeatability. Within the field of precision components, repeatability means that we strive for identical production processes and successes – no matter the steps that need to be taken. Because of that, we serve the customer by taking over the supply-chain and creating the most complex precision components. The result? Customer satisfaction is reached, and we contribute to the technological development of our customers. NTS is your trusted partner in making high-quality ultra-precision components.
