This aluminum valve component is one of the many parts we have manufactured at Ed's Precision Manufacturing, LLC to meet the needs of the oil field industry. Planning efficient, cost-conscious manufacturing operations required strict attention to detail because of the wide variety of machining techniques required to produce this multi-featured part.
Having state-of-the-art technology equipment allowed us to efficiently turn, thread, and groove the multi-dimensional outer diameter, create the chamfered edges, and drill and bore the inner diameter. We utilized live drilling to create the holes because we were working with aluminum, which allowed higher turning speeds while still ensuring precise accuracy. Smoothed to a 64 Ra finish, the part dimensions of 2.75"O.D./1.5" I.D. were maintained within very tight ±.005 tolerances.
We continue to manufacture this part, in quantities of 100-300, for just-in-time delivery to a customer.
