NEW Electroplating Line !

After 2 years of planning and construction . . . our new plating facility is in full production.  A team effort was needed from start to finish.  We now offer high volume, barrel plating operations for standard zinc, zinc & clear, zinc with supplementary yellow-dichromate and passivation (for stainless steel parts).
All parts are washed, rinsed, plated, rinsed, inspected and packaged (all on-site) in our manufacturing facility . . . all on the same city block.  One (or two) day turn-around time is normal on all orders.  Our larger (damage resistant) barrel system can plate 250+ lbs. per batch, saving you time and money per job.
We did our homework on the methods of electroplating . . . and it paid off with brilliant, quality plating for our customers.



Call us with questions, or requests for quotations at (800)833-6417 cst (Iowa).  We'd be more than happy to discuss your plating needs.  Thanks for viewing our blog . . . and see our website at www.dfsusa.com for more detailed company information. 

Multi's


Our ace machine operator Randy . . . running multiple parts on a bank of 5 cnc machines today.  Programming operations on our new Zeit(shown).  A couple Emcos spinning steel bars, and a Nexturn dropping these tiny threaded inserts. 

Multiple Operations / Fast Turn-Around / Competitive Cost


This high-volume part is cut to length, faced, mill cut, turned, beveled and threaded.  Finished parts off the end of a single machine.  We also offer a "Full Line" In-House Electroplating Facility for customers with a need for zinc & clear . . . or passivation(of stainless steel).  Most plating jobs only add an extra 24hrs to the finished product.

NOTE:  
Coming Soon:  A new, user friendly "Contact Us" information LINK on our 
CUSTOM MANUFACTURING Website at www.dfsusa.com


New CNC Machinery: via Zeit

Setting up our new Zeit Swiss-style.  This new machine joins our current bank of Swiss - however, it offers you (our customer) larger piece diameters to 42mm (1.625"). 

Big Parts !



Yes, we can manufactured larger singles, multis . . . 
We're here to help.  
These new parts required multiple operations - inspected, packaged and shipped.  Freight lines and UPS everyday.
By the box or by the pallet.
Note: Our new plating line is currently doing Clear Zinc, Zinc & Yellow and Stainless Steel Passivation. Manufacturing and Plating operations all at the same facility which saves our customer's lead times, freight and handling charges.

Threaded Shafts



I noticed this unique part the other day . . . threaded on each end (with 2 different thread lengths) for each.  No quantity is too big or too small . . . call for information on manufacturing your parts.


Threaded Adapters


High volume threaded parts. 
 Just one of our specialties at DFS/USA.

New Machines


It's interesting to see how a 30+ Ton (60,000+ lbs.) machine arrives.  Gift Wrapped.  Our old machine is then "gift wrapped" for the new owner.  That's a lot of American Iron . . . as we manufacture our "American-Made" parts.  Made in USA is Here To Stay

CNC Mill Cutter Operations


This piece has been designed with multiple, equal distance, mill cutter operations around the OD.  Internally threaded, faced - (and after a deburring operation) - they are ready for shipment. 

Aluminum Tubes . . .

. . . machined from 6061-T6 aluminum tubing.  Each has a slash-cut end with a knurling operation. 

Fastener Kits

Our Con-Sert Tool ( concrete screw combo drill & driver ) has been a manufactured staple for us the last 25 years.  We produce many unique anchoring products and kits for the construction industry.  See our website for more information on our fastening products . . . www.dfsusa.com

Cross Drilling

Bar Stock to Finished Parts.  Completed pins are cross drilled with chamfer.

From Programming . . . To Packaging . . .

We have the ability to machine high volume parts to your strict specifications . . . following the job throughout the entire process to ensure a quality product arrives on time . . . at your doorstep.

Quality Parts - High Volume or Low Volume

UPDATE: As of February 12th, 2014, our machine shop continues to grow and expand. We have upgraded our manufacturing potential and continue to receive new customers while supplying many long-standing clients.  High Volume or Low Volume - We welcome the opportunity to quote you.
Call us anytime to discuss.  Ph: (800)833-6417 cst

Damage Control

Many of the precision parts we manufacture cannot have any type of nick or burrs present upon delivery.  DFS utilizes special bins upon request to minimize damage to fragile parts . . . especially when outside plant plating and coatings are needed.  We run our new Eurotech for 3"+ diameter parts. 

Domestic Drop-In Anchors

We are currently seeking new distributors for our domestically produced Drop-In Anchors.  These anchors are manufactured at our plant in Charles City, Iowa and shipped direct to your warehouse - or drop shipped direct to the jobsite.   
For more information....Call (800)833-6417 cst and ask for Robert - and thank you for your interest !

Quality Control and Quality Assurance

Our customers rely on us for quality products.  This requires a variety of measuring devices, methods and proper training.  Consistent performance throughout the entire manufacturing process - from start to finish.




All records of manufactured parts are double-checked and filed for future reference as required to the:
ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System. 
Certificate Registration No: 951 03 1884
As always, we welcome your RFQs . . .

Specialized Machining . . .







 High volume production with cross drilling and broaching operations are not common in the industry.  Sure, many companies can do a few . . . but, at DFS . . . we have the ability to do thousands and thousands of parts.  Our multiple axis machines make this possible.  Send us your prints of current and existing parts and we can quote you . . . and possibly save you money and down time.
Call us at (800)833-6417 cst.




Cross Sections

During the initial manufacturing processes . . . the best way to check internal dimensions is to mill away the piece for a cross-sectional view.  We try to do this at various operations during the process.  Feel free to contact us for any of your product requirements. 
Quotes and samples by request . . .

more New Parts . . .

Trying to show you every part we make is almost impossible.  I just get to pick & choose some different  parts to give you a good idea what we can do for you . . . and remember, we have excellent contacts for surface treatments, zinc, oxide, passivation, etc . . . as we send out everyday (with an average 2 day turn-around on most jobs).  Keep checkin' back for more updates !

Big Orders of Small Parts

Our small parts capability is always improving with the addition of new equipment.  If you need stainless small parts - we are your source.  Send us your print today for a quotation.  Sunny days are here !

More Aluminum . . .

We recently pumped out these aluminum parts . . . which need small & precise manufacturing.  When production of soft materials are needed, collet and tooling marks on the piece can ruin function and/or appearance.  We have the equipment and know-how for large runs of precision parts.
 Let DFS get you samples and quotes for your next aluminum part . . . 
Call Trevor or Mark at (800)833-6417 cst.    
One last thing . . . Spring is here - Get out and enjoy it !

Black Oxide Surface Treatments



We recently sent out parts for black-oxide treatment.  This process has many advantages such as:
- No dimensional changes (+ or -) to the part
- The finish will not chip or peel
- Improved lubricity
- No hydrogen embrittlement
- Withstand temperatures to 900 degrees F. (482 C.)
We recommend an oil, wax or lacquer seal for corrosion protection after black oxide.
Call us at (800)833-6417 for questions on our surface treatment availability for your finished parts.
