Every job needs the proper tools to get done well. You don’t see an artist without a pencil or paintbrush, right?
Our machines are why we can satisfy high volume orders and build intricate custom parts that are excellent quality and accurately made.
This machine can do multiple processes on multiple sides (without errors caused by fixturing) and performs nearly all operations in the first go.
An incredibly versatile machine, it can work with all plastics and aluminum (including fiberglass and steel impregnated materials!).
This machine is our workhorse – it pumps out parts for long periods of time with no issue. It’s the perfect machine for any work that requires turning.
This machine has a 4th axis for rotary machining, such as surfacing, molds, or dies. It accurately performs virtually any milling work.
Nearly identical to the VCN 530C
Though this machine doesn’t have the 4th axis, it performs just as well as our Mazak machines. It’s perfect for simpler projects that don’t require rotary machining.
We also have the following:
Daniel Gailey, one of A&S Design’s partners, began programming G-Code by hand. He eventually switched over to Mastercam for more complex, unlimited programming.
This manual experience is still utilised today – it allows us to do in-op programming when needed. This ensures excellent quality and accurate tolerance.
New versions of machining programs are always being released. We never fall behind on updates with Mastercam and Solid Works, and we use leading-edge CAD software.
Alvin Gailey founded A&S Design Ltd. in 2004, after machining for 40+ years (he started out in the early 70s). He shares his expertise, machining skills, and design talents with his employees, who are all dedicated to perfection just like him.
A&S Design Ltd. was started as a small manual shop, where Alvin could spend his days enjoying his work. Eventually, his son Daniel Gailey joined him in the machining industry.
In 2018, Daniel and Kyle McHardy became A&S Design partners, after spending many years seeking challenges and learning CNC machinery – the more complicated the project, the better. They have 75+ years of combined experience in programming and machining.
A&S Design Ltd. invests in their employees and train apprentices through ITA programs in BC – as such, they always have Journeyman and Apprentice Machinists on staff. Everyone strives for perfection in their work and go to great lengths to ensure customer satisfaction.
