Muntz Industries was formed with the idea of manufacturing solenoid coils, but shortly after its inception a large need for precision machined components was discovered, thus the formation of AFC Machining Division. Both entities share one manufacturing facility in Mundelein, IL. Muntz Industries original concentration has been the manufacturing of bobbin wound high energy performance solenoid coils to OEM specifications. Through the development of this product Muntz Industries has found itself manufacturing cable harnesses, lead wire assemblies, eyeleting services, high temp-epoxy encapsulation, and injection molded encapsulations as well. AFC Machining has solely concentrated on CNC precision turned parts for the metalworking industry. Our state of the art equipment allows us to successfully manufacture for various markets worldwide, such as: pneumatic, hydraulic, agriculture, automotive, medical, and aerospace. Our machine line up consists of 3-axis, 5-axis, and 6-axis machine tools that vary from CNC Swiss precision machine tools to Twin spindle Twin turret precision machine tools. This machine technology and our detail-orientated in process controls allow a complete and efficient manufacturing process throughout. This type of manufacturing thru-put allows AFC Machining to provide just in time high quality precision machined components at a competitive price to our customers on a continuous basis.
Muntz Industries / AFC Machining's reputation is built on value. Poised for the international markets, we follow customer-driven specifications to manufacture to the highest standards.
