This was a mature delrin product that the customer brought to Jaco to see if we could lower the part price by utilizing our advanced delrin machining expertise. The part required a ± 0.001″ close tolerance on id, od and between the holes. The previous plastics machine shop that produced the part had a difficult time achieving these tolerances with machining delrin.
The part is used in high-end inspection equipment featuring a camera taking high-speed photography for quality control. The exact hole positioning and size tolerances was critical to the performance of the inspection equipment.
Applying 5-axis CNC machining and advanced manufacturing technology, Jaco reduced the plastic part cost and could hold tolerances that previous machine shops couldn’t.
