GARDENA , Calif.—TCI Precision Metals has introduced machine-ready manifold blanks which, the company says, will allow shops producing manifolds and other components for the fluid power industry to eliminate material prep work and reduce overall production time by as much as 25 percent.

TCI machine-ready manifold blanks are custom produced to tight tolerances, typically to match the outside dimensions of the finished part. As a result, shops can “get right to the high value aspects of the CNC machining and manufacturing process,” according to a release from TCI Precision Metals. The company’s specialized milling and grinding techniques are said to allow customers to begin the CNC machining process with a machine-ready blank that is dimensionally accurate, deburred, clean, and has a superior surface finish.

Custom machine-ready manifold blanks are available in quantities from one to thousands, with quick turnaround, the company says. The blanks are reported to deliver precision tolerances as close as +/- 0.0005 inch dimensionally and 0.0002-inch flatness, squareness, and parallelism with a surface finish of 16 – 25 RMS. The blanks are also machine ready, arriving deburred, clean, and ready to load directly into the customer’s CNC machining center.
