Horizontal Milling of an Aluminum Manifold for an Air Compressor

Horizontal Milling of an Aluminum Manifold for an Air Compressor

An air-compressor manufacturer approached Hogge Precision for an aluminum manifold, to be used in the medical field. Working closely with the client from start to finish, including offering design suggestions to minimize cost, we purchased all of the raw materials then performed CNC horizontal milling using our highly advanced machinery. We milled the profile, grooves, and slots, and performed drilling, boring, and tapping of the holes and ports. Finally, we anodized and assembled the manifold.

The product was made of solid 6061 aluminum. It measured 15” long, 5” high, and 10” wide. We worked with tolerances down to ±.001”. Performed a full series of testing and inspections on the completed part, ensuring absolute quality and precision.

Tightest Tolerances


ISO 9001:2015


Our client hired us to provide them with 10 of these aluminum manifolds every month. They were, and continue to be, extremely satisfied with our work.

This component is machined from solid 6061 aluminum. Also, we manufacture and or purchase all of the components, sub-assemble, and ship to the customer.

Hogge Precision is an ISO 9001:2015-certified contract manufacturer of precision-machined components.
