No matter what your project requires, the highly skilled machinists at Glaze Tool & Engineering – with an average of 10 years of experience – can meet all your machining needs. Our team consists of machinist with part set up experience. This allows them to study the print, plan the proper setups and complete the machining operations using the most efficient methods. Our CNC programming department works closely with the machinist to plan out manual operations and/or generate programs to ensure part-to-print compliance with very short turnaround. This contract machining expertise – combined with our focus on excellence and customer satisfaction – is what sets us apart from others.
Our superior products include fabrication and machining of weldments and frames, machining of castings and other raw materials (cold rolled steel, tool steel, aluminum, and stainless steel). Our CNC programming department uses Mastercam software and we ensure our work meets all specifications with the correct finish. At Glaze, we deliver quality projects on time and on budget.
Welding and Fabrication
At Glaze we can produce every type of welding and fabrication you can possibly imagine. No matter what your specifications, our expert staff can create the weldments and fabrications specific to your needs. Our customers choose their own custom-fabrication, including tensile strength, yield, material, and specifications. And we deliver it on time as well as under budget.
For more than 40 years, Glaze has provided quality workmanship to our customers. We fabricate, weld and machine per print. Examples include: conveyor weldments, frame weldments and multiple parts that assemble to make a structure. In addition to offering different types of metals (aluminum, stainless steel, and carbon steel), we also offer pre-machine bevels and can vary the size of our welding (3/4 – 1 inch welds).

Fixtures, Molds, Dies
Glaze Tool and Engineering, Inc. has designed and built molds, dies, fixtures and special machinery for various industries. We produce injection molded parts and performs secondary operations such as special processes and the assembly of component parts.
We have the ability to engineer, fabricate, run production and maintain tooling all under one roof. We have geared ourselves to serve the manufacturer who has a need for injection molded parts, a special process or high volume assemblies, but does not wish to invest in a specialized field or technology. Customers also may not have the manufacturing capability due to lack of physical space or machine time in their own plant. We can do the tough jobs that others can not. At Glaze, our goal is to provide quality replacement parts that keep our customers' businesses up and running. With more than 40 years of experience under our belt, we know when parts need replacing, when parts can be recovered through reverse engineering, and when parts can be refurbished. Let us help you save time and money with our guaranteed and superior work.
