This LED light ring is a mature delrin part that was brought in by a customer looking to lower overall costs for the component. The part required a ± 0.001″ close on the ID, OD and distance between centerlines. The previous plastics machine shop that produced the part had a difficult time achieving these tolerances with machining delrin. However, with our experience in machining delrin, Jaco was capable of manufacturing the LED light ring at a reduced cost.
The part is applicable 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.
By applying advanced 5-axis CNC machining, Jaco reduced the plastic part cost while holding tolerances that other machine shops couldn’t achieve.
