TriMet Group Opens New Office In Kansas To Serve Manufacturing Community

TriMet says it has expanded its manpower and footprint to the Wichita, Kansas, area to serve manufacturers that require expert-level services from product design to quality control.

The TriMet Group announced the grand opening of its new 5,300-square-foot facility in Wichita, Kansas. The St. Louis-based contract manufacturing and metrology company says it has expanded its manpower and footprint to the Wichita-area to serve manufacturers that require expert-level services from product design to quality control. TriMet’s end-to-end portfolio includes 3-D scanning, CAD design, reverse engineering, 3-D printing, tight tolerance machining and state-of-the-art inspection and measurement solutions. With deep roots in the aerospace sector, the TriMet team has more than 215 years of combined experience and collective insights into the high-tech, data-driven manufacturing arena. The company plans to add an additional 60,000 square feet to its industrial facility in two phases over the next three years.

TriMet says it is uniquely positioned to support customers who need specialized expertise outside their wheelhouse, or manufacturers challenged by tight deadlines when staffing is at full capacity. The TriMet team uses technology efficiently to solve a variety of challenges for the manufacturer from dimensional control issues to prototyping, the production of complex parts or assemblies to straightening of commercial and aircraft parts. The company is ready to serve Fortune 500 manufacturers, the home machinist or small start-ups needing custom, high-precision parts for their latest invention, according to the company.

“Our new Wichita facility assembles veteran professionals and current technologies under one roof. This location offers distinct advantages for our manufacturing customers who want a one-stop resource with a full service portfolio for faster and better problem resolution,” said Tim Dobrinich, founder of the TriMet Group. “Right from the beginning, customer urgency has always been our business. We are excited about expanding our business to the Wichita area and stand ready to deliver products and services with a speedy turnaround.”

With the new Wichita location, TriMet is making an investment in the region and in technologically advanced machinery. The TriMet shop floor houses two CNC 3-axis vertical Mazak milling machines, one CNC 4-axis horizontal Mazak milling machines, two 25-ton hydraulic presses, broaching and splining capabilities, conventional milling and turning machines and other high-end manufacturing equipment. The facility also will house a new state-of-the-art measurement laboratory featuring climate control and granite tables for metrology equipment. For in-place measure and inspection of large parts, the company deploys portable Leica Absolute AT960 laser trackers and ROMER Absolute arms. Using Mastercam, CATIA and Vericut, the company offers production services for any type of material from wood to titanium, soft to hard, holding accuracies up to .0002-inch on machined parts as large as 74 x 38 x 22-inch. These assets ensure TriMet can support the manufacturing industry’s move toward the Smart Factory, according to the company.
