G&D Integrated Expands Contract Manufacturing in Morton, Illinois

G&D Integrated, a provider of transportation and logistics services, plans an expansion of the company's contract manufacturing capabilities at its plant in Morton, Illinois.

According to company officials, over the past year, G&D Integrated has made investments in new, state-of-the-art processing equipment and now offers a wide variety of manufacturing services including saw cutting, laser cutting, welding complete parts, painting, and assembly.

The company's manufacturing division has the ability to provide customers with a complete part where machining is required with the addition of two new machine centers and a new turning center.

With the addition of the FARO Quantum M FaroArm technology, G&D can provide parts inspections that allow easy verification of product quality by performing 3D inspections, tool certifications, CAD comparison, dimensional analysis, and reverse engineering.

Officials said,“it is the first and only arm in the market that can be verified against the international certification standard for articulated arm coordinate measuring machines, ISO 10360-12:2016, which ensures maximum measurement consistency and reliability. G&D is also trained in the PPAP process for customers requiring any other additional quality services.”

G&D Integrated's manufacturing division also offers software integration that has the ability to use a customer's engineered models and directly download them into its system to create programs that cut and form.

This program can benefit customers through lower engineering costs and removes the need to redraw parts which eliminate first operation quality issues. The cost savings achieved through the use of this program are directly passed on to the customer, company officials said.

"These new manufacturing services will allow our customers to save money and time when components or completed parts are required," said David Wrigley, Director of Manufacturing at G&D Integrated. "Not only will we be able to produce higher quality parts but we'll be able to do it faster, with less energy, and lower costs."
