Ellwood Group, Inc. business units have the capability to rough or finish machine components. The process of machining removes excess material from a workpiece using a machine tool. Welding unites or fuses (as pieces of metal) by hammering, compressing, or similar, especially after rendering soft by heat, and sometimes with the addition of fusible material like or unlike the pieces to be welded.
There are hundreds of machine tools within EGI companies having unique capabilities for turning, milling, boring, honing, grinding, polishing and drilling.
