Known for producing cost-effective machining and component assembly solutions, The Hinz Company was contracted by a client from the motorcycle industry to custom build a steel push rod that would be used in a motorcycle brake. Originally, this part was constructed through a complex, four piece assembly operation. The Hinz Company was able to reduce this process, cutting the part down to just one piece, saving the client's both time and money.
Using our advanced CNC Multi-Axis turning technology, the steel push rod was manufactured complete in one operation on a machine with live tooling and sub spindle capabilities. Based off a customer supplied drawing and input from skilled Hinz technicians, the part was desgined and produced to meet precise client specifications demanding tolerances of ±.001".
After machining, a corrosion resistant zinc plating, providing a bright brilliant shine to the alrady highly finished part. We then shipped weekly kan-bans directly to the cusomers location in Wisconsin. With the ability to assemble this unit complete in one manufacturing step, we were able to reduce production time and cost while still effectively meeting our client's high expectations for quality.
