This LED light ring is a mature delrin plastic 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 plastic machining particularly 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. Contact Jaco to learn more about our capabilities for Delrin machining and Delrin plastic injection molding.
Using Delrin in Precision Manufacturing
Machining Delrin Offers Many Advantages
In addition to its initial strength and performance, delrin provides incredible moisture resistance. As a result, it is ideal for applications in wetter environments. Additionally, delrin offers resistance to hydrocarbons, solvents and neutral chemicals as well as superior dimensional stability and resilience. Delrin offers optimal performance in the following applications:
- Pump components
- Pistons and valves
- Food product forming dies
- Timing screws
- Wear strips
- Electrical insulator parts
- Gears, bearings, and bushings
- And More!
