Our company was originally named Federal Fusion and was founded in 1999 for Fabrication of Off Road Suspension, Chassis and Cages. In 2003, Federal Fusion brought on two new partners and become Evolution Machining & Fabrication Inc. In 2011, we decided it was time to change the focus of the company to providing the best quality Rod Ends & Steering Joints possible, so we are now Operating As EMF Rod Ends & Steering Components. (EMF as an acronym for Evolution Machining & Fab).
Machining complimented the Fabrication so it was a natural move. With machining capabilities, a fabricator has no boundaries. EMF is now solely owned by Clayton Kraatz who is the brains behind all of the products, the machinist and the fabricator. His extremely wonderful wife Erin is the manager of Part Sales and ordering, Shipping and Receiving and of course, the mastermind behind the website and forums. Our shop is located on some land just outside of Calgary, Alberta - which has allowed us to continue making great products, while being able to spend time with our little ones.
The Heim Joint (Rod End) that has become EMF's key product was created in the beginning to set our suspensions apart from the rest of the industry. The one-piece body with a retained spherical ball and races was the first change - making us the ORIGINAL billet Rebuildable Heim Joint Manufacturer. The second was customizing joints to fit customer rigs, instead of customers being forced to build around joints.
The Evo/EMF Joint worked so well and had so many variations; it was soon adopted into regular industrial applications.
Over the last 9 years, EMF has constantly improved on the Heim itself. Over 60 changes have been made to the original design to date. Every upgrade or changed internal part will cross over to our earlier versions. What once was just a one-piece rebuildable heim joint, is now a line of products ranging from small 3/4" shank joints to Frankenheim 2" shanks joints. It has also evolved into a line of rebuildable Tie Rod Ends, Ball Sockets, steering components and many other applications. We are working hard each day to come up with new products. Every little change from the material and coating used to the patent-pending retaining system that is EXCLUSIVE to our joints are what gives us pride in our product.
EMF has made a name for themselves for having the toughest Heim Joints out there, 100& Canadian Manufactured in our own shop and assembled with our own hands. See what difference our joints could make for you. From vehicles to house boat anchors... we do it all.
