About Phillips Precision

ISO9001:2015 Registered Machine Shop and Manufacturing Laboratory

Phillips Precision, Inc., is a modern, innovative and well-respected full-service machine shop and manufacturer of unique work holding products. Our ISO9001:2015 registered machine shop has a dual role: specializing in short run production and complex prototypes for any industry and functioning as a manufacturing laboratory. The products division manufactures and sells the company’s unique, industry-leading work holding products.

Machining Division

Phillips Precision provides machining services to any number of local and national customers in the paper, auto racing, food/beverage, electronics industries… and many more. Whenever you eat a Table Talk Pie you can think of Phillips Precision since we re-manufactured most of their line – including the crimping dies. When Bill Belichick tosses his headset to the ground, think of us – we make some of the components for the Bose sound cancellation headset.

The shop is filled with CNC milling and turning centers, including a 500mm CNC horizontal mill, and offers 3D printing, grinding, honing, laser marking services, assembly and more. We’ll assure the highest quality of your parts through our complete inspection department. We program with the latest CAD/CAM software with solids, we create using OnShape and SolidWorks Pro, and run our operations using E2 Shoptech software.


Steve, I just received the housing you did in 3-D printing. I am speechless, they are so good. I was hoping for prototype quality and this is first class production.

Products Division

Inventor and co-owner, Steven Phillips develops products to solve problems in his own manufacturing processes and has a knack for creating unique, simple, highly effective and affordable designs. Steve developed Pitbull® Clamp more than 25 years ago – the lowest profile and strongest work holding clamp of its size. Pitbull® Clamp has the strongest rip-out resistance of any clamp on the market and is sold all over the world helping manufacturers maximize feeds and speeds and increase job profitability.

Inspection and laser marking processes have also improved drastically with his invention of the only industry quick-swap, modular fixture plate and work holding system. Inspection Arsenal® and Laser Arsenal® are universal, LEAN fixture plates and clamps that are really catching fire and saving manufacturers tens of thousands of dollars. Companies like Milwaukee Tool, Kitchen Aide, Hyundai Automotive, the rocket ship company – to name a few - are swapping over their quality departments to integrate Inspection Arsenal® exclusively.  Companies like Central Coating and Lincoln Tool and Machine use Laser Arsenal® plates to speed up their in-house laser marking services. Many of the OEMs for both inspection and laser machines recommend our Inspection Arsenal® and Laser Arsenal® systems for its industry-improving techniques. With all this talent and technology under one roof, Phillips Precision is able to produce new products at record speed.

Fixture Design

Our engineering team not only designs custom inspection fixtures and laser fixtures we also provide reverse engineering and other CAD services that help you deliver perfect parts faster.  In the early years, Phillips Precision gained its reputation machining complex, high tolerance prototypes.  This background lends itself perfectly to the design, fabrication, assembly and test of your critical inspection fixtures.

Quality Policy

We strive to deliver perfect parts faster by implementing processes that eliminate our production “running at risk” and the company “operating at risk”. Through a dynamic continuous improvement program, Phillips Precision mitigates risk to all concerned parties.
