At JMJ Profile, we’ve spent years positioning ourselves as some of the most experienced, passionate craftspeople working in the world of phenolics machining anywhere in the country today. We’ve worked hard to back up that reputation not with baseless claims, but with action – our clients know that when they have difficult jobs with incredibly rigorous requirements, they can turn to us to meet their needs and exceed their expectations, no matter what.
Part of the way we’ve been able to do this so successfully and for so long is because we’re willing to do the types of jobs and work with the types of materials that other shops won’t come near. There’s an old saying that reminds us “it’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it.”
Make no mistake: that “someone” is JMJ Profile.
“A Little Dirt Never Hurt Anybody…”
Maybe the best example of a task that other shops don’t want to touch has to do with deburring – something that is commonly overlooked in the world of phenolics.
Certain types of phenolics usually burr up during production – this despite the fact that others can come straight out of newer and more advanced CNC equipment ready-to-ship at the same time. Deburring is the often thankless process of neatening and smoothing up the rough edges (or, in many cases, ridges) of a part so that everything arrives in your place of business looking exactly as it should.
Some shops leave this process to the client. Others won’t work with the types of phenolics that burr up in the first place. At JMJ Profile, we do it all – both the parts of the job that are fun and exciting and the ones like burring that, well, aren’t.
Your parts will go through processes like stringing, cleaning, washing and more – all on top of deburring – to make sure that everything looks as spectacular as it did when you originally envisioned it in your head. We know that there is often a fine line between an acceptable and an unacceptable component and, at the very least, it’s one that we never want to cross.
Yes, a process like deburring is time-consuming. If you had to pick a word to describe it, you’d probably pick “monotonous” – and that’s if you were in a generous mood. Some shops argue that these types of dusty, dirt-filled processes eat into their return on investment – meaning that they don’t see the point of expending all that energy.
Do you know what else eats into their return on investment? Customers that are anything less than 100% satisfied – which is why we’re more than happy to go to the effort to generate this level of attention-to-detail.
JMJ Profile: Leveraging Our Expertise to Your Advantage
In the end, we at JMJ Profile understand that your business – and potentially, people’s lives – depend on the components we make every day. That’s why we take pride in working with the types of materials that other shops don’t want to deal with. We have no problem getting dirt under our fingernails and we certainly embrace the endless amounts of experimentation that are sometimes required to get things exactly right.
Every part is crucial – whether it’s a single part for a lone application or something that will be reproduced exactly thousands upon thousands of times over. If we weren’t willing to get deep in the weeds when it comes to phenolics machining, we would be doing both you and us a disservice – because we wouldn’t be able to give you exactly what you need, exactly when you need it, absolutely no questions asked.
You don’t want that, and neither do we – which is why we take quality just as seriously as you do.
If you’d like to find out more information about what makes us experts when it comes to phenolics machining, or if you’d just like to discuss the specifics of your own situation with someone in a bit more detail, please don’t hesitate to contact JMJ Profile today.
