Horizontal Milling of an Aluminum Manifold for an Air Compressor
An air-compressor manufacturer approached Hogge Precision for horizontal milling of 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.
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.
To learn more about this project, or for more information on our other products and services, please contact Hogge Precision.
Notes: 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
