The ability to handle large volume paint projects is made available by our 4 separate 40'x12'x13' downdraft bays, a custom engineered high-heat drying bay, and a custom engineered sandblasting bay, all in which allow us to offer our customers a variety of services.
  • A high definition plasma machine, oversized shearing unit, heavy duty iron worker, (3) 3-ton boom cranes, as well as 9 overhead-traveling cranes are all additional machines utilized in our various manufacturing processes. 

MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY

At Griffin, Inc., we take pride in the fact that each armored truck we build is completely manufactured and fabricated in our facility. Using the latest in modern technology, and strategically placed work cells throughout the plant, we are able to reduce the 100’s hundreds of small parts down to a few major components, thus improving the cost and efficiency of our end products.

Lincoln Electric Welding Robot. 

 

 

 

  We have just added the latest in automated welding technology

  to our facility and by doing so,we have been able to increase our

  productivity and capabilites as a manufacturer. Additionally, the

  magnitude of the machine itself allows us to take on larger jobs

  and achieve even greater results than before.

 

 

 

 

Trumpf L3030 Laser

 

 

 

  This machine has added more precision to the component parts we

  manufacture, as well as increased efficiency that allows us to

  remain competitive in terms of price and deliverability. With the

  capabilities of cutting up to 1” thick steel, precision cutting, and a

  large capacity cutting table, this machine provides us with one more

  tool to help us deliver the best products possible to our customers.

 

 

 

 

 

Trumpf 5230 TruBend Press Brake 

 

 

 

  As one of the world’s most innovative press brakes, and touting one

  of the largest selection of Di’s in its class (in which we have over 100 

  custom selection at Griffin,) the press brake gives us the ability to complete 

  even the largest of jobs. Capable of 230 tons of force, it gives us the ability 

  to perform a wide range of jobs, suiting all of your needs 

 

 

 


Engineering Capabilities

We integrate the latest engineering technology into every product we manufacture, through the use of SolidWorks 3D modeling software, AutoCAD two-dimensional CAD software, and Sigmanest CAM software for programming both high-definition plasma and laser to provide the best yield from sheet metal.

An increase in our engineering staff recently, has aided in the future development and research required to stay ahead of the security dynamics in today’s cash-in-transit industry. Our enhanced 8-person engineering staff consists of professional, mechanical, and electrical design engineers, as well as 2 CAD technicians. This investment in our engineering department will provide us with the necessary resources to continue to support the cash-in-transit industry with competitive pricing, short lead-times, innovation, and cutting edge technology.

We have taken extreme care in selecting our staff here at Griffin Inc in both manufacturing and engineering, so that we can send a strong message to you. “Protecting the lives and securities of your families, businesses, and friends is our number one goal, and a mission that we accept wholeheartedly.”

  • SolidWorks – Aids in three dimensional design and fabrication of new bodies.
  • Sigmanest CAM – Computer Aided Manufacturing software aids in the efficient cutting of flat parts on laser and HD plasma.
  • AutoCad – Computer Aided Drafting software aids in two dimensional simple design projects.
