Machine Shop

This is where it all happens. The machine shop is one of Smith Industries’ greatest assets, allowing us to maintain the high levels of versatility, precision, and customization that keep our customers coming back. We are the best machine shop in Vancouver, with a wide range of machine tools, and we can manufacture practically anything. We take any orders, big or small, from prototypes to industrial parts. No matter what you’re looking for, we can help your imagination come to life, and we’re known throughout Vancouver and BC for our custom metal work.

In our machine shop, we can do both conventional and CNC (which stands for Computerized Numerical Control) machining, along with welding, and the full spectrum of millwright services.

You may be wondering what ‘machining’ means. Well, it’s when a piece of material (usually metal) is cut into a desired shape and size through a controlled material-removal process. Controlled material removal is also known as subtractive manufacturing because you are taking away (subtracting) from the raw material to create the shape you want.

Custom Manufacturing, Repair Machining, Reverse engineering.
Anyone who has dealt with Smith Industries knows we specialize in high end machining. If its Custom manufacturing, repairing damaged machinery, or reverse engineering obsolete parts, we guarantee our work. Working directly with our millwrights allows us to understand the importance of parts fitting and operating as intended. Let us know how your part functions, were it goes, why it wore out, and we will do the rest to ensure it operates as intended.
Prototypes, Design, Consultation.
Manufacturing prototypes for a specific application can be a time consuming and costly process.

But what are millwright services?

Millwrights are tradesmen who install, dismantle, repair, reassemble, and transport machinery and equipment to factories, power plants, and construction sites, among others.

As a machine shop that also provides millwright services, that means we not only make machine parts- we can take machines apart. And then move them and put them back together for you.

Our machine shop contains many machine tools including machining centres, routers, mills, and lathes that allow us to do almost any job.

We offer the following services in our machine shop:

  • Conventional & CNC Machining
  • Millwright Services (ie. Equipment Assembly, Dismantling,Installation, and Repair)
  • New Parts

So no matter how big (or small) your project is, we’ll do everything in our power and capabilities to make it come to fruition.
