Triad Tool was founded by William P. Wichelhaus and owned continuously by the Wichelhaus family since 1933, with the 4th generation management actively in place. Triad is a vertically integrated contract manufacturer specializing in CNC precision machining.
Triad excels in the manufacture of detailed prismatic shaped parts with complex geometry and intricate detail (i.e., housings- hog-outs, castings and forgings). Parts with these configurations are well suited for our 4 and 5 axis machining centers. Through the utilization of our FMS cells, small to medium mixed batches of parts can be simultaneously processed in an unmanned, lights-out environment.
Included within Triad’s state-of-the-art facility is our CNC Turning Department; WEDM (5 axis machines with auto-thread, essential for 24/7 capability); Abrasive Water Jet; and an extensive Toolroom which supports our advanced fixture and tooling requirements. Coordinate Measurement Machines, with travels up to 48”x100”x 40”, are equipped with fully programmable heads and auto-tip changing capability, which support our machining capabilities. Triad’s true strength is our process control and our production capacity, while still maintaining the agility of a smaller company. This is achieved through a team of creative and dedicated people.
