Welcome to the NTMA Michiana Chapter

Welcome to the Michiana Chapter National Tooling and Machining Association, which is dedicated to advancing the interests of custom precision manufacturing industry. Our member companies are engaged in many aspects of metalworking, including the design and manufacture of special tools, dies, jigs, fixtures, gages, special machines, rapid prototyping, and precision machined parts. Our associate partners consist of local companies providing products and/or services to our regular manufacturing member companies.

Companies in the industry use a variety of processes and a full range of machine tools and related equipment, ranging from small automatic lathes for miniature parts, to enormous boring mills and automated manufacturing cells comprised of multiple machines.

The industry is probably the most technologically-advanced of all small manufacturing activities, and enjoys widespread deployment of computer numerically controlled (CNC) machines, other computer aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) techniques and robotic engineering production automation.

Our industry supplies the necessary precision tooling and machining for such vital industries as defense, automotive, aerospace, medical diagnostics, appliance, business machines, electronics, agricultural implements and equipment, ordnance, transportation, environmental, construction equipment, energy, and many more.

The Michiana Chapter supports the southwest Michigan and northwest Indiana areas.
