Case Study

Industrial Mixing Equipment

Leading Food Manufacturer

Creating food products requires predictable and consistent food manufacturing equipment, especially industrial mixing equipment. For manufacturers of industrial continuous food mixing equipment, the tight dimensional tolerances of the mixing cams as well as their fit and synchronization is crucial to the performance of their equipment. We help them achieve this desired performance. Billet provides high precision CNC milling and turning of stainless steels and FDA-grade plastics, as well as precision assembly services to ensure we meet our customers exact print specifications.
