Making parts for Rocky Mountain customers since 1971 from Kansas to Utah and from New Mexico to Wyoming: Denver Precision Products is committed to manufacturing custom turned parts, and specialized fasteners. We perform contract manufacturing by using state of the art CNC (computer numerical control) lathe turning centers with live tooling, and CNC Swiss (sliding headstock screw machines) from a variety of steels, aluminum, brass, or plastics. We are generally competitive in production lots between 50 and 50,000 pieces.
Grandpa, Claude A. Knuepfer, started in the screw machine industry in 1922 in Chicago. My father and uncle joined him after WWII and my generation started in the industry in the 70's and 80’s. My father and a local machinist started Denver Precision Products in 1971. In 1978, I, Claude F. Knuepfer, accepted a position as General Manager of Denver Precision and in 1981 bought the corporation from my dad.
In college I argued that the problem with American industry was that they refused to modernize to keep up with the rest of the world and that jeopardized the US position in global manufacturing. In the mid 80’s I looked around and saw that I was running equipment from the 1940’s and 1950’s, so I settled on a plan to modernize and add CNC machinery as the old technology had vanished (much like buggy whips) to computer controlled tools. I added simple machines at first, growing more sophisticated, by adding live tooling and sub spindles and swiss type turning, staying focused in the turning industries, pioneered by Grandpa Claude A.
Now, Denver Precision Products equipment includes machines with sub spindles, live cross drilling and milling, and even angular drilling and milling. Our goal is to make all those parts that used to require 2, 3, or even 4 processes and accomplish them in one. This makes process control simpler and straight forward.
We have made a variety of parts ranging from items for tags in cow’s ears to parts for the space shuttle. We have produced parts successfully for the hydraulic, computer, aerospace, military, electrical, secondary automotive, industrial painting, oil exploration, injection molders, sheet metal houses, medical, recreational, and safety industry.
