United Equipment Accessories (UEA) is constantly seeking innovative ways to enhance our manufacturing processes and meet the unique custom requirements of our customers. One groundbreaking technology that has emerged is "additive manufacturing." Leveraging this manufacturing technique, UEA now addresses customer demands more efficiently while continuously improving our production processes.
Additive manufacturing employs computer-aided design and 3D object scanners to guide the hardware in depositing material layer by layer, resulting in highly precise geometric shapes. As the term suggests, this process involves adding material to fabricate an object. In contrast, traditional manufacturing methods often require the removal of material through milling, machining, carving, shaping, or similar techniques to achieve the desired object.
At United Equipment Accessories, we have established a legacy of excellence in manufacturing high-quality slip rings and rotary unions. A key factor in our success lies in our deep understanding of the importance of catering to our customers' individual needs. Each customer brings with them distinct requirements, whether it be form, fit, material, or performance specifications. With the aid of our skilled engineers and designers, we use additive manufacturing to translate these unique specifications into functional prototypes and end-use parts.
The integration of additive manufacturing has also brought significant benefits in terms of quality and cost efficiency. Through advanced scanning technologies, we ensure precise measurements and dimensions. Additionally, the additive nature of the technologies that UEA is using reduces material waste and minimizes production costs, resulting in a more sustainable and cost-effective manufacturing process.
At UEA, we value collaboration and recognize the importance of fostering a strong partnership with our customers. By actively engaging and seeking input, we create a collaborative environment that enables us to better understand our customers’ evolving needs. This collaborative approach allows us to continuously refine our Additive manufacturing processes and invest in emerging technologies. It positions us to anticipate future demands and proactively develop innovative solutions.
We firmly believe that delivering exceptional customer experiences necessitates a commitment to continuous improvement. With additive manufacturing as a cornerstone of our manufacturing processes, we are constantly refining and optimizing our workflows. By leveraging advanced software, embracing design thinking methodologies, and regularly seeking feedback from customers, we identify areas for improvement and implement innovative solutions. This commitment to excellence not only enhances the quality and performance of our custom parts but also positions us as industry leaders in providing custom slip ring and rotary union solutions.
