Hargett Precision Products & HPP SimulationApr 13 2017
Hargett Precision Products and HPP Simulation owner Mark Hargett, has always loved designing and building things. In 2006 after growing tired of corporate politics where he worked Mark decided to purchase a CNC. Mark says, “I started a project of restoring an early Porsche 911 and knew I wouldn’t be able to build the parts I wanted for it with a hacksaw or hammer, which is why I bought a new Hurco CNC Mill, and put it in my garage.” After learning his Hurco, he knew it was time to purchase CAM software and after evaluating many different systems, Mark decided OneCNC was the best choice for his new business. “Being new to CNC, I realized I needed a CAM program to help me utilize my CNC from CAD to machining. I cannot think of a CAM program I didn’t evaluate, I came across OneCNC and the intuitive interface, the simplicity and capability were awesome from the perspective of a new end user, nothing compared to it. Purchasing OneCNC allowed me to get more comfortable and efficient with the manufacturing process enabling us to grow into a successful business and purchase additional CNC equipment with multi axis capability.”
Specializing in older and high performance Porsches, Mark created a successful line of shifters and pedals for the 911s, Indy and off road racing. The success of Hargett Precision allowed Mark to expand into another area which is designing and building components for high end race car simulators (HPP Simulation). Machined out of 6061T6 aluminum, these hydraulic pedal systems are designed for sim racing. Sim racing has become somewhat of a worldwide phenomenon, but the industry lacked simulators that replicated the true feel of race car pedals. “We machine and manufacturer almost everything on the entire set, so we use OneCNC a lot in the production of them.”
“I enjoy being creative and designing my own products in my own way, and I enjoy that people want my products, I like that I cannot make these products fast enough. The future of Hargett Precision Products and HPP Simulation will see additional streamlining, new part designs and productions, and a lot of growth.”

S & A Engineering - With OneCNC, you’re never on your ownMar 28 2017
For more than 20 years S & A Engineering has served the automotive and instrumentation industries; designing, machining and prototyping with plastics, aluminum and steel.
Reggie Smith, owner of S & A Engineering, purchased OneCNC in 2001 which was his first jump into becoming a full CNC shop with CAD/CAM capability for accepting 3D solid models. He previously used another software calling it “clumsy at best and incredibly hard to learn”. A friend had introduced him to OneCNC and immediately he felt that OneCNC could handle the 3D part files he received and get the job done. “When I first purchased OneCNC, I knew I would have no trouble importing and machining any part files”.
“Dealing with OneCNC sales and technical support has been a very friendly and helpful experience, and my last upgrade reminded me of how powerful and easy OneCNC software is and has continued to be over the years”.
“Having the capability of machining in 3D with OneCNC has allowed me to expand my business and maintain customer relationships, and generated many referrals due to OneCNC’s toolpath reliability. OneCNC has contributed to my reputation which has been a blessing”.
S & A Engineering primarily focuses on the design and build of special machines and fixturing; as well as the foundry wax injection die industry within the Michigan area.
“OneCNC does a great job, and it is easy to use. Dealing with OneCNC for so many years, I always know that when I need support, I will get the help I need because OneCNC stands behind their product. With OneCNC, you’re never on your own”
