Precision Components Manufacturing: Where Failure is Not an Option

The engineering and manufacturing critical components, where failure is not an option, requires the synchronization of a number of elements.

Cleaning
This process utilizes sound waves of high-frequency to clean finished parts. The sound waves form bubbles only microns across in size. After reaching a certain frequency, the bubbles expand in size until they reach a specific dimension. Then, they implode on the part’s surface. This is high-cleaning pressure on a microscopic scale. It is cleaning that does not harm the unit in any way. This is an effective method for cleaning metal parts.

CNC Turning
In this process, parts are machined by a cutting tool that is fed parallel onto the surface of the material that is being rotated. A lathe performs the rotation, which is considered to be a tool that dates back to Egyptian times.

Soldering and Brazing
Precision components manufacturing may also require brazing and soldering. This is a heating process where two, unlike, materials are joined by the melting of another metal. Sometimes, the braze joints are stronger than the metals that are joined. Such joints can withstand tremendous shock and vibration. They are also excellent electrical conductors.

Engineering Support
Collaboration is critically important between an engineering shop and its clients. Collaboration helps accelerate a product’s time to market. Product costs can be reduced during design stages, and all throughout every stage of developing a product. Working together also allows an engineering company to acquire intimate knowledge about a company’s products. This knowledge can be directly utilized in the precision components manufacturing process. Software such as MCOSMOS, AutoCAD, and CAD/CAM software, to name a few, are excellent tools to support engineering projects and to share valuable information.

Materials Milled to Precision
Materials that an engineering firm is likely to mill to precision include alloy steel, brass, carbon steel, copper, aluminum, nickel silver, stellite, polyether, plastic, PVC, titanium, nickel 200, and much more

“Where failure is not an option” is far more than just a slogan for engineering companies that pursue precision machining. Industries like the military, aerospace, and medicine rely on parts and machinery that can be counted on to operate efficiently under a wide range of challenging uses.
