CNC Machining of a Carbon Steel Transducer Head for the Electrical Industry

A client in the electrical industry came to Hogge Precision Parts in need of a carbon steel transducer head. We performed CNC machining to produce the part, which was completed in only one operation, using a multitask machine. We used a single turret twin spindle turning center.

The finished product had O.D. measurements of 2.375 inches and a length of 1.885 inches. It was made of 1117 carbon steel and has a clear zinc finish. We performed full testing and inspections on the finished product prior to shipment. The satisfied client now purchases 100 of these transducer heads per month.
