Carbide and Ceramic Precision Tooling and Components
We manufacture precision tooling, components and other special wear parts to customer print. We are equipped with machinery, processing techniques and experience to produce miniature parts with OD’s or ID’s as small as .002″ (.0508mm). Conventional-size production is to 6.000″ (152.4mm) in diameter, up to 18″ (457mm) between centers. Whether your part requires tight tolerances, it’s a small part or requires a high finish and lapping, we are the company that can do it all!
We can produce, economically, in any lot size. Whether your application requires one piece for research and development or several thousands of pieces for full-on production, we can build to your needs.
Micro-Precision Mini-Carbide Parts
Our decades of experience with small, precise carbide parts is extensive.
Holding tight tolerances and small part lapping is critical at GLE-Precision. We lap holes as standard procedure as small as .004″ (.1016mm) to a tolerance of .000050″ (.00127mm) in roundness and size. The ID is concentric to an OD to .000050″ (.00127mm), with finishes to .4RA (.01016 micron) or less. Depending on the application, the surface finish can be decreased (better) that a .4RA if needed.
These accuracies are satisfactory for most applications, but we can handle closer tolerances where required. Precision becomes easier as the holes increase in diameter, but with this contrast, the competition within the market increases.
