C&A Tool Engineering, Inc.

Advanced contract manufacturer in the aerospace, medical, transportation and industrial markets

Blisk fabricated through direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) additive manufacturing process

C&A Tool Engineering, Inc. is a premier national and international contract manufacturer that provides customized solutions – from design and planning to fabrication and final inspection – on behalf of leading OEM’s in the aerospace, medical, transportation, and many other high tech industrial markets. C&A’s key strengths and capabilities include:

C&A was founded as a local tool and die shop in 1969. Today, the company operates three major facilities encompassing over 700,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space and employs over 550 people in northeastern Indiana.

Acquired on September 1, 2017 by MinebeaMitsumi, C&A is now part of the NHBB/myonic Business Unit, which includes the specialized bearing manufacturers NHBB, myonic GmbH, and CEROBEAR GmbH.

Additive Manufacturing

In addition to being highly skilled at complex, high-precision machining techniques, C&A is an experienced practitioner of the additive manufacturing technology direct metal laser sintering (DMLS). C&A’s early adoption of DMLS is a competitive advantage for the company, as their backlog in this area continues to grow.

Furthermore, C&A is one of the first companies to have its direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) operational process permitted to support customers’ FDA approved products. This expertise has propelled C&A to become a trusted manufacturer of surgical implants and instruments for spine, knee, and hip applications on behalf of leading OEM’s in the medical industry.
