Voice of Customers Regarding our weekly conference calls, I propose that we suspend/stop all future weekly calls for this current production project. The reason for this is due to the teams success!! Everyone should be proud of their individual and team accomplishments. Roop is shipping approximately 1,000,000 yokes per year to DriveSol. Looking back at the project, I see some major milestones that I am especially proud of. We designed, developed, and prototyped samples in less than 3 months. We tooled a factory in 4-5 months and we supported aggressive production requirements without any major hiccups!! We also supported at lease 1 significant running design change (bearing hole size) without major issues. In my opinion this is a major accomplishment.
Roop has demonstrated professionalism throughout the project and I want to say "Thanks" - Drivesol

Roop is also equipped with MIG welding Facilities Tube Swaging Roop has support capabilities including FeatureCAM CAD and CAM design, sawing, vibratory finishing abrasive blasting, brazing and Arc welding Apart from Machining and assembly features we have capabilities to manufacture in house machines .
Steels we have machined:
1010, 1018, 1020, In general, 1018 cold drawn steel is the most commonly machined bar stock and has very good welding properties. There are some leaded steels such as 12L14 and 41L42 which though much easier to machine can have poor weld characteristics. Avoid them on welded assemblies. 4140 is a hardenable and tougher grade. 41L42 is its free machining version .
S S 300 series In general, the 300 series of stainless is non-magnetic except when extremely worked and is non-hardenable, 303 is easily machined but the least corrosion resistant of the 300’s. 304 and 316 are in ascending order of corrosion resistance. The “L” grades of 304 and 316 are recommended for welded applications because they are lower in carbon, and less subject to weld cracking. 321 and 347 are also very corrosion resistant and resist embrittlement when they are welded. They are relatively difficult to machine.
