Miniature torsion bars, wire, guides, ball joints, and sensors are among the precision components used in a wide range of industries. Meeting and exceeding rigid standards such as MIL I-45208A is the challenge of job shops working to supply the textile, nuclear, instrumentation, medical, dental, appliance, computer, electric, ceramic and fastener fields.
The capabilities required to manufacture precision parts to meet diverse market demands must include the machining of tungsten carbide, ceramic, steel and other ferrous alloys, aluminum and plastic materials. Depending on the materials being processed, tolerances of 0.0005" to 0.000005" are required.
Computer Numerical Control (CNC) and conventional machining; surface, jig and cylindrical grinding; Electro Discharge Machining (EDM); lapping; polishing; and assembly functions are utilized to generate precision components. Continuous improvements in employee training and quality programs must be a part of the overall operations of a successful job shop.
Objective Industries, a precision component producer, offers custom gages traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology as a part of its involvement with quality and precision manufacturing. Serious considerations must be given to heat, machine rigidity, gauging and dimensional accuracy need to achieve the overall goals of high-quality production.
