Swiss CNC machining is the preferred method for the manufacturing of small, accurate, repeatable parts, as shown in this project we completed for a waterjet cutting systems manufacturer. dti EXACT™ was challenged to produce a method of retention for securing a jewel orifice into a waterjet cutting nozzle. This retainer needed to press-fit into a stainless steel housing, securing an orifice of only 0.060″ in diameter. Due to the precision tolerances and high volumes needed, this part was a perfect fit for dti EXACT™’s Swiss-style CNC screw machines.
Due to the ultra-high pressure sealing environment these retainers are subject to, dti EXACT™ had to ensure tight tolerances of up to +- 0.00025″ were consistently held. After approval of initial prototypes, dti EXACT™ began delivering high volume production quantities of the retainers through kanban inventory systems. These retainers, machined from 0.125″ diameter, 6AL-4V Titanium bar stock, proved to hold up extremely well for the industry’s demanding applications. Today, this customer continues to rely on these quality, small parts from dti EXACT™.
At dti EXACT™, we are dedicated experts in the field of precision machining, and continue to be the go-to-choice for challenging fabrication work. For more information about this project, see the table below or contact us directly.
