Hargett Precision Products & HPP Simulation

  Apr 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.”
