Approaches for Selecting Precision Parts Processing Techniques

18 August 23

The selection of processing methods for precision parts varies based on the specific applications. The choice of processing methods and procedures hinges on the physical attributes of the customer’s precision parts, such as tolerances and materials. In both the processing of small batches of precision parts and large-scale mass production, distinct processing technology options exist, offering significant time and cost savings for customers.

When engaging in the processing and production of precision parts, the following factors serve as criteria for determining the most suitable processing method:

Part Dimensions:
We specialize in manufacturing precision parts with stringent finish and tolerance requirements. At present, our capabilities encompass an inner diameter of 15μm [0.0006″], a tip diameter of 35μm [0.0013″], and a wall thickness of 10μm [0.0004″]. Achieving such high-precision CNC machining is a feat not within the reach of all manufacturers.

Quantity of Precision Parts:
Quantities as low as 2,000 pieces can be cost-effective, particularly when precision parts exhibit complexity during machining. For scenarios involving mass production with the need for production tooling support, the upper limit of annual output becomes almost boundless. Naturally, a substantial volume of CNC precision parts processing necessitates a competent team comprising skilled technical and quality personnel.

Precision Part Tolerance:
Tolerance performance may be contingent on part geometry. As a general guideline, target dimensions should maintain a sinter tolerance ranging from ±0.3% to ±0.5% of the nominal tolerance. However, when secondary grinding and polishing are required, maintaining a tolerance of <5μm [.0002″] is typical. For an in-depth analysis of your part, we encourage consulting our technicians.

Part Geometry:
Simpler shapes may prove more cost-effective to produce using conventional manufacturing techniques. Conversely, the greater the complexity, the more advantageous precision part machining becomes in comparison to alternative methods. Incorporating flat CNC part surfaces can contribute to reduced manufacturing costs and streamlined program development.

By analyzing the aforementioned characteristics, it is feasible to determine the most suitable processing methods and procedures for precision parts, ensuring the production of exceptional, high-quality products.
