Knowing our reputation for providing streamlined, cost-effective quality service in the area of machining and component assembly, The Hinz Company was contracted by a client to construct a brass multipositional valve to be used in a power tool application. Originally, this part was being machined by an alternative manufacturer through a complex, five-step machining process. Our expert staff of engineers at Hinz were able to cut down this process, manufacturing this part complete in one step, providing top-notch product at reduced production time and cost.
Based off a customer supplied print, we employed our 8-axis, CNC Swiss machining center to manufacture the part, upholding a tight concentricity tolerance between nine internal holes and the outside diameters of just .003 of an inch .
Two opposing angle holes, each measuring .0625 inches in diameter are also drilled into the part - all in one operation! Lastly, the valve requires an 8 micro finish and then a custom pin to be pressed into one of the holes.
Combining years of expertise with our advanced machining equipment, The Hinz Company was able to provide this client with reliable, streamlined manufacturing services, producing their part in one complete step while still maintaining high-quality standards and precise customer specifications. By streamlining their original production process, we were able to fully manufacture and assemble this part at reduced cost and quicker turnaround.
