Our team of in-house engineers can manage the entire production path - from part design, to mold design, to CNC programming. We work with customers to find the best solutions for their unique needs. Our moldmaking engineers design custom molds using the latest technology.

engraving


Our Company was founded by engravers and continues to offer die and mold engraving, both two-dimensional and three-dimensional, by machine, hand, and chemical etching. We will help you determine the best way to engrave your job.

texturing

More than 30 years of texturing experience places Comet in a class itself. Our Cometex method of etching enables us to texture a mold with virtually any pattern or drawing.

gun drilling


Comet offers the largest, most sophisticated gun drilling equipment in the area, complete with an auxiliary head for tapping, spot facing, counter boring, thread cutting and light milling.


die casting


Die casting has many advantages including excellent

dimensional accuracy, smooth cast surfaces, thinner

walls can be cast as compared to sand and permanent

mold casting, plus inserts can be cast-in (such as

threaded inserts, heating elements, and high strength

bearing surfaces).  Die casting also reduces or eliminates

secondary machining operations and has rapid

production rates.
