Axenics – 30 Years of Growth & Evolution in Contract Manufacturing
Axenics has been in business for more than 34 years, and we have seen many changes in the manufacturing industry and how we execute our day-to-day craft. We’ve evolved our product engineering, product design, and overall manufacturing process to stay ahead of the needs of the industry.
Three decades ago, Axenics was known as RenTec, and the company primarily performed field installation of process piping. Axenics eventually sold the field division, moving operations in-house to two facilities in New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
Today, Axenics focuses on contract manufacturing of high-purity process piping and tubing for both plastics and metals. Over the previous years, we have innovated in many ways as well as invested in some high-quality machinery. Some highlights of these changes include:
Staying up-to-date with the latest welding equipment
As advances in the semiconductor, medical device and aerospace industries emerged, the need for high-purity orbital welding grew. Orbital welding provides extremely clean welds, free of contaminants. To ensure this, Axenics has a Class 100 Cleanroom. Orbital welding is also the most efficient way to join tubes, flanges, elbows and joints. Lead time has become a top goal at Axenics, in order to stay competitive and ensure customer satisfaction.
Installing a new CNC bender
CNC tube bending is a great solution when it comes to gas and fluid system applications. Axenics purchased a bender to save time and money for clients. The Horn TBRE Hybrid CNC Bender guarantees a high-quality product,and also allows us to achieve the same high-quality result over and over again.
Adding new Hydrotest equipment
The Department of Transportation (DOT) has strict specifications when it comes to hydrostatic testing of stainless steel containers that hold gas or liquids. Therefore, we thought it was important to qualify our team to test, inspect, certify, repair and/or rebuild low-pressure cylinders to specification. Axenics holds several DOT Stainless Steel Cylinder Approvals, and has them renewed via inspection when required.
Laser Part Etching
In an effort to be more environmentally-friendly and to improve speed and cost for etching, we added a laser etcher. This makes Axenics less reliant on chemicals to mark and label parts.
Growth in Plastics
Our plastics division has grown in experience over the decades, and developed a proprietary method of bending fluorinated ethylene propylene, perfluoroalkoxy, polyvinyl chloride, chlorinated polyvinyl chloride and polypropylene. Our plastics team has also developed a proprietary way to weld perfluoroalkoxy and PTFM.
Prototypes on Demand
We have also developed a prototype shop that can take larger project builds from prototype to production.
One of the more valuable gains we have made during the last 34 years is our relationships with vendors. It’s essential for us to have a great rapport with those we work with in order to pass the time and monetary savings on to our customers.
