Complex Machining & Exotic Materials
Complex machining of exotic materials never just happens. It is always the result of careful planning, the right equipment and, most important, a deep understanding of the precision machining process. The ability to take a complex job from a 3D cad file to a real-world part requires a level of manufacturing expertise that few shops possess. At CraigEdward Machine, our people have decades of experience with complex precision machining. We offer the perfect blend of modern machine tool technology and old-school, hands-on manufacturing knowledge to deliver your parts to print and on time. We’ve proven ourselves time and again by delivering difficult-to-machine jobs that other shops won’t even touch.
From Aluminum to High-Temp Metals to Titanium, CraigEdward Machine has the equipment and the expertise to machine your most complex requirements. Our craftsmen can hold tolerances to .0001” with finishes measured in light bands. For a total machining solution, you can’t beat the team at CraigEdward Machine.

Decades of Precision Machining Knowledge and Experience
The CraigEdward Story
CraigEdward Machine was started in Chatsworth, California in 2011, but our roots go much farther back than that. In the early 1990’s our co-founder, Brian Falter, was in college studying engineering and business when he got a part-time job deburring parts in a precision machine shop. Several years later he was the General Manager. During the following decade Brian honed his skills in CNC machining, engineering, product design and management. Today, those skills are the driving force behind CraigEdward Machine.
A unique combination of precision machining resources.
CraigEdward Machine offers you a unique combination of precision machining resources. We have 15 modern CNC machine tools with a maximum milling capacity of 44” x 22” x 22” xyz; and a maximum turning capacity of 19” diameter x 52” length, with a 1.5” diameter bar-feed capability. We can machine a wide variety of materials from plastics and composites to aluminum and stainless steel, including high-temp and exotic metals. Our state-of-the-art, 11,000-square-foot manufacturing facility is designed for flexible production and lean, efficient manufacturing. We can hold tolerances as close as ±.0001” on complex configurations that other shops won’t touch. And, we offer you a level of value and personal service that gets you what you need, when you need it, at very competitive prices.
CraigEdward Machine also offers in-house Deep Hole Drilling. This capability is unique among precision machine shops and provides our customers with a very cost-effective deep-hole solution. Our computer-controlled BTA drilling machine can drill holes up to 6.0” in diameter and up to 60” deep in any machinable material with an accuracy of ±.002”. The process is up to 15x faster than gundrilling and will save you time and money, especially when combined with our precision CNC turning and milling all under one roof.
You have many options when it comes to precision contract manufacturing. CraigEdward Machine aims to be your best choice for quality, dependability and outstanding customer service. Our dedicated team of professionals and craftsmen delivers value-driven precision machining solutions for our customers every day.

Keyence XM-1000 Handheld Probe CMM
New Keyence XM-1000 Handheld Probe CMM
CraigEdward Machine has added a new Keyence XM-1000 Handheld Probe Coordinate Measuring Machine. This state-of-the-art instrument enables high-precision measurements using advanced probe marker triangulation. The XM Series employs a new concept whereby a hi-res camera captures near-infrared light emitted by seven markers on a handheld probe, delivering an accuracy of ±8 μm and repeatability of ±3 μm. With a capacity of 11.81” x 9.84” x 5.91” we are now able to quickly and easily verify critical dimensional features for both in-process and final inspection.
Our new XM-1000 also imports and interfaces with 3D CAD files to produce detailed inspection reports for each part. The built-in SPC software analyzes measurement results to provide statistical values, trend graphs, and histograms. At CraigEdward Machine we are committed to using the latest technology to deliver quality and real value for our customers. Contact us to learn more about our enhanced quality capabilities.
