A Brief History of VMC Electric llc & ITS

The strength of any company is not in a name but the people behind it.



VMC Electric llc and ITS

Back in 1992, Independent Technology Service Inc. was chosen by the original Fadal owners to develop procedures and start production QC testing and service repair for all the machine electronic circuit boards.
Chances are if you look on any CNC board, you’ll see the ITS stamp on it. Signifying that the board has been processed by us; both for In-Circuit Testing and our automatic Functional Tests to ensure it meets all the original design specifications and that it has the latest revisions.

VMC Electric was started by myself, one of the original family members of Fadal Engineering Inc. and Vice President of Control Design until 1998.

Our goal is to provide high quality Original Equipment Manufacture from many of the original manufactures (suppliers) such as Baldor and Glentek, plus repairs and new replacement components for the Fadal machines. And do this at the highest value / lowest cost ratio to our customers while providing "old fashion" personable service as before.

Today, we also continue building on the expertise afforded through close relationships with many of the original equipment manufactures, utilizing their tremendous engineering knowledge and experience. We also partner with some of the original engineers that I worked with during my career at Fadal Engineering. Nothing better than working with those who originally designed and maintained the products we offer.

We truly are one of the most highly qualified companies in regards all aspects of the Fadal machine.

Machining Experience That Counts:
Starting from the most important aspect of the machine; making parts. Our background and machining experience is one of the highest in the industry. Dating back before we started building machines, as one of the premiere job shops in Southern California. Specializing in making some of the most complicated and difficult parts in the aerospace industry. Back in 1976, I personally worked on the Viking and Voyager projects plus many other projects for Hughes Aircraft company. Of course that was before CNC, at that time is was simply NC (Numerical Control) and paper tape. We also spent many days standing at the Bridgeport making parts the hard way.

So not only do we know how to build machines, we know how to use them!

Engineering Experience That Counts:
- Machine and Control design, starting in 1974 at Fadal, before the very first VMC45 machine.

- Personally worked directly with the Fadal OEMs in the design/testing of many control software features and the associated electronic components i.e. motors, drives, amplifiers and CNC Control boards.

- As Vice President Control Design at Fadal, I was responsible for all the control aspects; in the design, production and maintenance, which included all software, hardware and mechanical elements.

- Directly responsible for the engineering needs of the service department, both internal service issues and distributor support; sales and service.


Through this site we are currently offering many axis, spindle and control components for the Legacy CNC88 and 32MP control. With a goal to provide genuine OEM replacement parts at a completive price for all new, remanufactured or repair parts for your machine.

We have designed this site to also provide both interesting and helpful information for many components related to your Fadal machine - specializing with the Control, Axis and Spindle Drive systems.

We will be continually updating our site with articles for service help and also points of interest, so check back with us often.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have and questions or comments.

 

Sincerely,

One of the commonly ask questions - "What made Fadal so successful?"
The simple answer would be, "that many important things came together at the right time".
But the one most important contributing aspect was, the people!

Surprisingly, many today don't realize that the company was originally started by four people.

Francis, Adrian, David, And Larry - Francis de Caussin and his three sons.

Very typical of our average customer base: the family business.

In the beginning, Fadal Engineering, just as a typical machine shop, struggled to just survive the normal day-to-day business challenges. This gave Fadal a tremendous understanding for what their customers went through in their business. Appreciation for what it takes to make it in the Manufacturing Industry, but most of all compassion for their needs; their success is Fadal's success.
For example, we never looked at the service department as a means of profit; we were just glad we did not lose too much money in service at any given point in time. Our goal was to treat them fairly and do what ever possible to help make our customers be successful. Everything else would work out in the long run, which it did. Even with our employees, fairness was always the guideline.
After we starting building the machines, more generations of de Caussins joined in the effort and we eventually had four generations working together!

The company was really a compilation of employees, suppliers and distributors under the direction that together provided the absolute best customer relationships. Besides a good machine at a good price, it is the people that truly propelled the success. Very unique in a time when things like that were uncommon in the business world.
