Precision Turned Aluminum Parts
 A client from the industrial finishing industry contracted General Engineering Works to uncover a better manufacturing solution for their custom aluminum parts. Originally produced through several operations, the parts were often subject to issues regarding concentricity, burrs, and handling damage. Our client asked us to find a method of producing parts that offered more reliable, consistent performance, while eliminating some of the overall manufacturing expense incurred through multiple machining operations.

Employing specially engineered tooling, we were able to develop a machining process that allowed us to drop the part complete in one, cost-efficient operation. This single process included all necessary cross drilling, multiple threading, and milling procedures. And, all these operations were completed while upholding a (±) .0015 inch precision tolerance. Due to the fact that we were able to combine multiple production steps into one machining solution, we were able to significantly reduce production and set-up time, as well as overall manufacturing costs.

Our innovative, single step machining process allowed us to produce parts that provided a more reliable, consistent performance while eliminating the high cost and time consumption that was incurred through our client's original manufacturing methods. Through the use of our advanced technology, combined with years of expertise, we were able to come up with a manufacturing solution that met our client's needs and exceeded their expectations.
