360 Brass Hex Component
| ||A client contracted General Engineering Works to manufacture a unique design for a critical brass component which included a hex shape that was smaller than the major diameter of the part. Milling the hex by conventional means was time consuming and costly.|
Through the use of polygon turning technology, we were able to successfully generate the hex shape with no added cycle time. The part measured .625 x .91 inches. Constructed from 360 brass material, we were able to uphold a (±) .003 inch precision tolerance.
The unique design was a critical component to the client's application and allowed for improved functionality. Our ability to produce the part with no added cycle helped them maintain costs as interest in the product grew from 10,000 units per year to well over 300,000.
