CNC Turn and Mill Machining
Nowadays CNC machines are taken for granted, but at one time there were no CNC machines.
Someone had to be the first to venture into that arena.
Traction Products was the first company in racing to adapt to Computer Aided Drafting and Computer Numerical Control machining, or CAD and CNC.
With CNC lathes and mills, we have improved the level of quality machining in racing to that of aerospace.
Our finishes are outstanding when compared to competitors because we choose to focus on quality rather than quantity.
Especially in one-offs, proof-of-concepts, or small orders, it is more advantageous to cut from solid block then to make pattern and castings.
Shapes and surfaces that were once only dreamed of before, are fairly easy to machine today quickly.

Grinding & Finishing
We finish grind our parts in house after heat treat to ensure quality fits.
We have ID grinders to grind internal bores in gears and shafts.
We also have external and surface grinders. We even have made custom grinders for our Lockers and Quickshifts.
Responding to a customer's panic phone call the night before, we were tasked to change ratios of an existing transmission.
The Traction Products team was able to rapidly design, machine, heat teat, grind and assemble this prototype transmission in 3 days, starting on a Friday and finishing on the Sunday afternoon.
