Our Nuclear Capabilities

B.C. Instruments considers quality, precision and continuous improvement to be of the utmost importance. We believe that resting on one’s laurels while refusing to seek out the newest technological advancements and machinery is to do our customers a great disservice. That’s why we are always researching new technologies, parts and machinery in order to provide our clientele with the best service in the entire industry.

CNC Milling

Mori-Seiki 5-axis Vertical Mill-Turn machining centre is equipped with an 8 pallet pool and 180 tool ATC. This high speed, high accuracy machine enables us to maintain multiple setups with minimal changeover time which provides increased machine utilization and unattended production.

High Efficiency Machining

This equipment incorporates the use of Robotics and automated CMM inspections and feedback to the CNC controls which allows for 24 - 7 lights out capability, while maintaining precise dimensional control of components being manufactured.

Secondary Operations

We have in-house capacity to machine parts requiring Gundrilling, Hard Milling and Turning, Honing, Laser Engraving, Lapping and Electron Beam Welding. We are set up to install various types of hardware and bond components using structural adhesive films and liquids to military and federal specifications. In addition to this we have the capability to perform extruded media deburring.


Electron Beam Welding

Two Electron Beam Engineering EB Welders with a 12 inch cube vacuum chamber. Our personnel received extensive training at the manufacturer’s facility and on site at BCI. This equipment allows us to join dissimilar metals in a vacuum with no filler material and minimal part distortion.

CNC Turning

We have 32 CNC turning machines including state of the art Tsugami and Nakamura Tome Mill/Turn centers as well as a range of Hardinge Super Precision Hard Turning Machines.

Rapid Prototyping

Our Rapid Prototyping equipment includes two 2 Mazak Nexus CNC Lathes with Mazatrol conversational programming system as well as a Haas VF-2 machining center.
