Allied Machine Celebrates 75 Years of Product Innovation



Allied Machine & Engineering Corp, a manufacturer of hole making and finishing tooling systems, is celebrating 75 years of product and industry innovation. While highlighting last century's successes, Allied continues to drive innovation in the drill manufacturing market and is focusing on new and updated products for all industry sectors.

According to Allied President and CEO William H. Stokey, "The drill manufacturing market continues to innovate and I am proud that Allied leads that innovation, developing and combining technologies to provide many different solutions for customers."

Established in 1941 by Harold Stokey, Allied Machine & Engineering Corp. is a third generation family-owned company. From its origin as a manufacturer of lock nuts and taper sleeve adapters for troop carriers and tanks used by the Allied Forces during World War II, Allied later transitioned to a contract/job shop manufacturing tapered bearing lock nuts and accessories.

In the 1960s, Allied entered the hole making arena, introducing a more effective universal-style spade drill, which brought the concept of replaceable tip drilling to the marketplace.

"In the 1980s, Allied revolutionized the drilling market further by introducing the Throw-Away (T-A) spade drill, invented by Bill Stokey," said a company spokesperson. "Along with the introduction of hard surface coatings, the T-A system brought higher drilling feeds and speeds to the replaceable tip concept. Customers moving away from resharpening drill products found the T-A spade drill ideal for increasing productivity and reducing maintenance costs."

Allied advanced the replaceable tip drilling industry in the first decade of the 21st century with the introduction of the second generation of the Throw-Away product (Gen2 T-A), and the Gen3sys high penetration drilling system. "Allied also introduced APX large hole drilling products, which can double productivity rates compared to competitive products," said the spokesperson. Most recent innovations include solutions for drilling carbon fiber material used in the aerospace industry and precision hole making solutions for tight tolerance applications in the automotive industry.

Allied has continued to expand its manufacturing footprint, adding 60,000 sq. ft. of space in 2012, followed by major facility expansions from 2013-2015 that added a further 61,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space, offices, cafeteria space, training areas, and research and development space.

"Our new Gen3sys structural steel drilling system is reducing costs in the fabrication of structural steel beams, and our APX product is ideal for the large hole drilling for the wind energy marketplace," said Stokey. "Even as we celebrate 75 years of success, we are looking forward to the next century with confidence. We have a loyal and stable workforce, and an environment that stresses technological innovation coupled with sound financial management."
