August 2014 - Sequoia and Trulife Invest Heavily in Growth

Trulife has been investing heavily in Trulife Engineered Solutions in the past several months. Multiple CNC machines and other equipment have been purchased since Pro CNC was acquired by Trulife in January 2014. Trulife has invested heavily in new equipment, training and technology. The company has added:

  • Another 5-axis mill with larger travels than its current 2 machines

  • A large gantry mill with 5’ x 10’ travels

  • A 4-axis horizontal mill for additional capacity

  • A vertical milling centre for additional prototyping capacity

  • A new CMM with double the size capacity as its first CMM

  • A laser tracker to accurately inspect very large parts and assemblies

  • A shot-peen machine to allow it to bring this process in-house

  • Another CATIA software seat to expand its capacity for design engineering

  • Another KOMA tool setter for faster, more accurate offline tool setting for our CNCs

The company is extending the use of its web based ERP/MES software, Pro Shop, to its facility in Poulsbo with appropriate training to exploit its full potential there. In addition Trulife is pursuing AS9100 certification for that facility as well. The company has also added more than ten new machinists and are recruiting further to double its existing capacity over the next twelve to eighteen months.
